99.9% Keyboard.

Hey - I started playing TM before there was even mouse support! I learned that way...never been able to change

I find that a Vulcan mind meld with my cpu is a much more responsive method of control. Though I warn you, don't try it with an AthlonXP. They get hot. I have scars.

started with the keyboard. Hands used to cramp up after playing for a few hours though! Switched to the joystick. Very intuitive. I wouldn't change.

Crappy ol' MS Sidewinder 3D Pro 'stick, but it gets the job done . Use the rudder control for the turret. I just can't believe the thing still works lol.

Started out with the keyboard.

Got an adapter to use my Playstation controller (analog). Use that the most.

Starting to switch over to PS controller and the mouse. It's going to be really wicked when I master that setup!!

Default mouse and keyboard.The only thing I change is making the turrent cam the right mouse button.

Tried to use a steering wheel. That lasted about 5 minutes. I started and still use a joystick for driving and firing. Use the keyboard to turn the turrent (when I do turn it).

Joystick as for turret control, going one way looking another does me head in
