    Default Full SIXAXIS pilots, advice & experiences.

    In my mind this should be a thread where the ones who follow the path of full sixaxis control share their experiences and tips.

    I'm going down this road from the first moment in wipeout hd. I've been chosing the no barrel roll road too.

    In the first hour it was a complete mess. Now i'm feeling in full control at flash speed in almost any tracks. I achieved gold in all the first tree tournaments but a zone in last one where i'm stuck at silver.

    But approaching Rapier class, i'm starting to think that there is no way to play in a proficient way with sixaxis control. The problem is that i have no reference and i cant undertand if it's me, or if it'a problem with this control metod. It feels like there is simply not enough precision to place the ship where you want in the short period of time you have at your disposal.

    I've been playing with sensitivity a lot and i've come to this conclusion. As speeds go up, you have to up sensitivity. Track configurations count too.

    At venom 40 % worked well. At flash i upped at 50 % and now at rapier i'm at 60 %.

    What do you guys think ? Is there someone on full sixaxis control who's doing well ar rapier speeds ?

    Thanks !

    I cant see how motion sensor would be enough for phantom or even rapier. Its fun at venom and maybe flash. But I stopped using it early because I knew it wouldnt last in the long run.

    I love it in Motorstorm though, but that game is so slow. Thats why it works.

    And I dont like that people call it "sixaxis". xD

    tried it, then dumped it.

    just yesterday I tried it again. With full courage I started up zone with motion controll. Sufficient to say I didn't last long, even after a few restarts. Guess it's not meant for me...

    Tried it briefly for the Trophy, but man do I NOT have the patience for this. It might be quite fun at lower speeds once you learn it, but it's just not worth the time for me when I can get tons of fun out of the game instantly by using 'normal' controls...

    Congrats on mastering it in Flash, though - something I could never do.

    Thank you

    Once you nail it ( in my humble opinion and speaking of feeling only ) its so much better than the classic analog. It's quite "negconesque"

    I'm really hoping that someone comes in this thread saying that it's possible to be consistent and having decent speeds at rapier and more.

    I think the problem with really high speeds is that there is a slight delay between the motion input and the reaction on screen. You don't notice it on Venom, but at Phantom it kills your line.

    I think i will have to give a try at analog controls then.

    As if barrell rolls where not enough

    Thank you

    Certainly didn't mean to discourage you from perfecting your motion control skills!

    You know, yesterday i tried vineta k Time Trial at raptor speed.
    It took me 2 hours ( literally ) to be at 1 tenth from silver.

    Considering that this challenge comes at the fourth tournament i must understand if it's a matter of the player not being good enough or if it'a a question of control method.

    Because if it's doable i can continue to give it a shot... but if it is not i need to move on.

    Well why don't you try on any given track how fast you can go with 'normal' controls, and then try to achieve that time with motion controls. That way, you will clearly see if motion control is valuable or not.
