Artur “Zear” Rojek sends in a patch to add joystick input support for Flare. Excellent!
To make that patch really useful, I need to add an aiming option that always aim powers the direction the player is facing. Perhaps I can look at supporting non-cursor (mouse, stylus, touch) systems — some of the menus could be tricky.
While I was in that area of the code, I added Hardware Surface and Double Buffering options to settings.txt — should help with systems that don’t have those capabilities.
