Wondering if anyone has any feedback on using a joystick instead of a keyboard?

The XIM4 supports two analog devices for this purpose that I'm aware of, the nav and the g13. If you think the idea of analog movement would be more comfortable than using a keyboard then these are good choices. If you decide to use the nav you will need a mouse with a lot of buttons to make up for the low button count on the nav. The logitech g502 is a good pair with the nav and a good mouse overall.

Other keypad analog stick devices are supported but these are recognized as digital sticks instead of analog sticks. Movement would be on/off and more like a keyboard.

If you're asking about using a flight stick one is supported but I don't have experience with it. XIM4 supports the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro.

Thanks mist4fun I do have a mouse with 7 buttons on the side. I might give it a try.
