My car game is almost finished, and I am currently using a thumbstick to drive the car around.
The traffic is vertical only and the player needs to drive vertically.
Of course, to overtake cars you need flexible controls.
The thumbstick works, but I'm thinking it could be much better.
Like use a thumbstick for steering, and seperate two buttons for accelerate and brake. Like on a gamepad.
Now I tried modifying the thumbstick to just use left and right, but couldn't get it to work properly in conjunction with the accelerate and brake buttons. Somehow the acceleration and max speed were changed.
I simply disabled the accelerate and brake for the thumbstick, and added two buttons for them instead.
The mobile game I made has a portrait layout.
This is the thumbstick example I'm using, created by LittleStain : https://www.dropbox.com/s/i1obxb4zg018119/ProjectThumbstick.capx
If anyone has any suggestions, ideas, they're more than welcome.
