Gamepad on PC?
« on: June 20, 2012, 01:52:43 PM »
Since this game has been ported to PS3, and therefore made to work with a gamepad, is there any chance of adding gamepad support to the PC version?

I have no idea, but you can use something like Joy2Key or Xpadder in the meanwhile.

I regularly play our test version with a gamepad, so in principle it is already supported, but I am not sure if our recent backport of PSN/iOS stuff has broken this, or if the UI needs remapping to make this feasible again.

It is on the list of things we are considering. :-)

Supporting a gamepad on pc means a different ui so at the moment it isn't supported in the work in progress port. That's not to say it won't be supported but if it is it'll be an alternative rather than something you can use alongside the mouse and keyboard.

I would have thought we'll include it at some point. It's useful for testing joypad input :)
