Minos Spacefighter Updated for Controller Flight!

Minos Spacefighter was just updated to support flight mode with compatible controllers. This update has a tonne of fixes and changes how the game is developed. Of note the game is now built with Unity’s Technical Preview version for Daydream and Cardboard. This has a bunch of optimizations and fixes however is only available for Android currently. Once iOS support is offered we can get this great new update out to iPhone users as well.

New Feature:

  • Now fly with a supported gamepad and look around the cockpit while trying to track down your next target!

Updates:

  • Use a controller to control your ship! For a list of supported controllers see: Supported Controllers
  • To enable the controller flight mode connect the controller. In the Main Menu scene open the ‘Options’ panel and make sure the option ‘Look to Fly’ is disabled.
  • To change the controller layout push the ‘Pause’ button on the controller in the Main Menu scene to open a menu to configure the controls to your liking.
  • Now using the new GVR plugin 1.1. Google has removed support for the magnetic button in Google Cardboard. To continue playing the game with a old version of Google Cardboard go to the  Main Menu. Open the ‘Options’ panel and set ‘Trigger’ to ‘Disabled’ this will allow playing without any kind of trigger button.

  1. Great start for a space game! Onky issue is the joystick moves the ship way too slowly… I can’t turn fast enough to shoot the smaller ships.

  2. Game doesn’t load on my asus ZenFone 2. It just shows a 3d layout of controller optionswith no way of chosing mode with or w/o controller. My phone is cardboard enabled and I’m using wearality vr. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

    • Hi Richie, There is a coming update to Minos Spacefighter that should help support this phone. Google has been very slow in updates to the Cardboard SDK. I am hoping to release the update in the next 2 weeks.

  3. Hi! Just bought it, I love this game! I’m playing with an LG G3 and PS4 controller via bluetooth, and I always pitch to the left. The controller is fine, is there any way to fix this?

  4. Got the steelseries Stratus XL win/android version. However the game allways autofire. makes it hard to play. Otherwis works as a charm. Is it supposed to do that or is it a way to turn autofire off?
