Anyone else use a gamepad for bzFlag?

I have a Nostromo n50 programable pad that I use, and love. It's basically a 10 key keyboard on a wrist pad with a D-pad and throttle wheel. Pictures can be found at http://www.radiativenz.com/reviews/nost ... ndex.shtml It has 3 programable shifts which make it equivalent to 40 programable buttons.

I have it set up with the Up position on the dpad as jump, and the other three positions as radar zoom controls. I have the keyboard buttons set up to do different things. The one under my index finger acts as a second fire button, so in combination with the fire button on the mouse I can shoot pretty quickly (good for hosing someone in a FFA game) and the others are set for things like automatically running /lagstats or entering my password when I'm on my server.

Does anyone else use a game pad? And if so how do you have yours set up?
