Games

Postby Ikonos » Sun Feb 14, 2016 5:41 am

I thought I would start a topic where people can post games that they have had success playing using kinesic mouse and that they enjoy playing. I have mostly been playing games like Diablo 3, Hearthstone, civilization 5 and some other small point and click games. I've tried playing rocket league but never really was successful at it. But thanks everybody that decides to post.

Yeah, great idea. Here are some I've played...

RPG Games (similar to Diablo 3)

Titan Quest
Drakensang Online

FPS/Puzzle Games

The Talos Principle
Portal & Portal 2
MagRunner: Dark Pulse
Polarity - just picked this one up for a buck on a Steam sale :)

FPS/RPG Games

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Fallout 4

The only thing about these last 2 is I believe I had to do some tinkering to get the controls set up exactly how I wanted. More so in Fallout 4 then Skyrim. If anyone needs assistance, post and I'll see if I can help.

Actually all these games I was able to play with a mouse & Project Iris... but I imagine you could play with Kinesic as well if you have full head movement.

it would be awesome if I could play it that way. However I have no function below my shoulders. Also I use the kinesic mouse RS which means I can't use Project Iris to fill in a few of those movements. I'm really hoping he comes out with a updated version soon, where the kinesic mouse would have indicators built into the program.

I don't have movement either, I use Quadjoy as my mouse. It's kind of expensive but maybe something you want to look into.

ABS, can you elaborate on how you play a little? I was interested in trying a few of those but there seemed like way to many buttons. Just curious what your set up is like...

Does anyone have a set up to be able to play games on a console like PlayStation or Xbox? I know this is only for computer but I was wondering if anyone played on them and if so how they do it?

Spinal cord injury, no triceps, no movement in fingers. I use my knuckles to type und for mouse klicks. I play with a cherry keyboard with soft switches. A logitech m570 trackball.
And of course kinesicmouse. WASD with head movements and facial expression to jump and weapon zoom.

I play on xbox one with Kinesic mouse using the Titan one adapter through pc.
I use it in conjunction with a homebuilt controller. I'm a C6 quad so I have arm movement but no fingers.
I use KM to run the right stick and activate some buttons depending on the game.
with both of my hands I can hit about 3 buttons at once or one stick and 2 buttons.
This set up has allowed me to play all games. Played through all Halo games etc.

That's pretty cool. I wish I could control both sticks at the same time however I have no movement below my shoulders so all I can utilize is a controller called quadstick. It lets me play some games like destiny, Lego games, Witcher 3, rocket league and a few others on PlayStation 4.
