slow keyboard motion

I've lately been playing BZ with a gamepad, but the slow motion button (as is usually represented by pressing the "a" key) doesn't affect anything but the keyboard.

I'm not sure if this is an 'issue' per se, or if this belongs in the enhancements folder.

When I wanna snipe I'm getting tired of having to use both the keyboard and gamepad! :-P

In BZFlag SVN HEAD (2.1), slow motion affects both keyboard and mouse.

I don't know about Gamepads/joysticks, though.

I just got one also. you have to open bzflag with your game pad pluged-in and then Options>Input settings>change Key mapping then find the "slow motion" button in the menu hit enter on it and push the key on your gamepad you want the slow motion button to be. hope that helps.

Yeah, I tried that. I set it to key(pad) 7 I think. Nothing.

Maybe it's flaky; only guaranteed to work with the keyboard for the time being. On some keypads it works, on some it doesn't.

Also, you use linux, windows, etc? Dunno if that would change anything or not.
