It may be a crazy suggestion, but it would be ultra nice if Elements would be possible to play with a joystick or a wii!
Joystick:
For example, if you push the joystick forward, the player will aim North etc...

Wii:
With this you can aim and move like in any other Wii shooter.

Hows that sound??

This is good idea. But first you will have to buy a joystick if you haven't got one.

Well, you won't HAVE to play with the joystick, you know. And at the other side it'll be also a hidden commercial to buy one :p

You will be able to play with a keyboard, of course =)

All i need is a joystick-to-usb plug converter.

My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Making a stick work is easy in terms of code.

Making the player move NSEW, shooting and weapon selection is easy. Mouse aiming is the real issue?

personally, i find the mouse reacts a LOT faster, so i would use just that. For realism of a guy like him being hampered down bu insane amounts of weaponry, i would say using the slower pad is more "realistic". Would be nice if i could get my comp to start using my wiimote tho.

And what about Wii? Wii compitability is fairly easy in Adobe Flash 9 (the program used to make .swf animations/games) but I really don't know about C. In any case, I HOPE the library used for it isn't insanely huge and complex...
