Testing out some new stuff…

I’ve been busy trying to put in some new things into Killplex. Most notably, a minimap, which you can pretty much disable by pressing M.

I’m also testing out controller input. Yes, mouse and keyboard are still the main focus of this game, but I thought adding it wouldn’t be bad. Controlling the player position with the left thumbstick, right thumbstick to aim, R1 (or right shoulder button) to fire, L1 (left shoulder button) to sprint, and some other basic stuff.

The most difficult part was trying to implement the current buttons working with it. I had to come up with a pretty nasty hack (game-wise, I didn’t account for controller input at the time) to make it work. And for now it shall remain like that.

I also made a video documenting this. I thought it would be cool.
