Outlaws, the 1st First-Person Shooter based in the Old West. Well actually it's the only one that I know of. 8^}
July 21 1997 update released by FPgaming to provide Assassin 3D support for Outlaws by Lucas Arts.
Many thanks to the Guys and Gals over at Lucas Arts for allowing us to create and provide this update to you.
To have Assassin 3D support in Outlaws you
will need to grab this update file OUTLAW1.ZIP. This will not update your version number so it
will still work for Online Gameplay.
Extract these two files into your Outlaws directory. The Default Directory for Outlaws is \Program Files\Lucas Arts\Outlaws.
You will need the Assassin 3D Direct Input Drivers installed and calibrated through the Joystick applett.
Start Outlaws using the Shortcut supplied with the game (Do not have the Mouse Emulator (Amouse) running). You will need to go into the Options area and choose Joystick.
From there choose Miscellaneous. You will see Axes Types area and need to choose Assassin 3D for the U and V Axes. Choose Joystick for the X and Y Axes. Click here to see a screen shot of what it should look like.
You now need to set up the joystick and movement functions, Choose Movement Control.
Click on Forward, move your joystick Forward and you will see Y Axes Forward get filled in.
Click on Backward, and move your Joystick Backwards and you will see Y Axes Back get filled in.
Click on Strafe Left, and move your Joystick to the left and you will see X Axes Left get filled in.
Click on Strafe Right, move your Joystick to the right and you will see X Axes Right get filled in.
Click on Turn Left, and spin the Assassin 3D to the left and you will see U Axes Low get filled in.
Click on Turn Right, and spin the Assassin 3D to the Right and you will see U Axes High get filled in.
Click on Look Up, and spin the Assassin 3D towards you (Normal Default) and you will see V Axes High get filled in.
Click on Look Down, and spin the Assassin 3D Away from you (Normal Default) and you will see V Axes Low get filled in.
Click Here to see a Screen Shot of what it should look like.
At this point I suggest you click on Accept and continue on to select your Weapon/Action Control choices.
You can change any these items any way you like depending on your preference.
Have Fun !!!
One of our Assassin 3D customers (Randall Melton) told me that he set up the game with the Assassin 3D mouse emulator running and it worked good enough for him. He just emailed me that he spent 4 hours playing online without a hitch. Here's what you need to do.
1.) Make sure that you have the Assassin 3D
Mouse Emulator installed and running Click Here for more info
2.) Start Outlaws.
3.) Select Options, then Mouse.
4.) Select the buttons next to, Turn Left/Right and Look Up/Down.
5.) You will need to crank up the sensitivity setting a little. Start at about 2/3rds max and adjust from there.
6.) Set the mouse buttons for what you want them to do.
7.) Click accept.
8.) Select Joystick.
9.) You will need to configure the joystick to move and strafe. They made this pretty simple just use your mouse to select the box next move forward and push the joystick forward. repeat this procedure for the move backwards and strafe left and right.
10.) You will want to deselect the joystick Turn Left and Turn right. Select the box next to the function and press the delete key.
11.) Make sure that the joystick is marked as Active.
12.) Set your joystick buttons to the functions that you wish them to have
13.) Click Accept
