cannot get controller (game pad) to work
i have turned the "game pad" setting on.Saved the settings but the controller does not work. it even shows the choices for the buttons, such as A to start B to go back but they do not work. i was wondering if anyone had any ideas? I use the same game pad for other games and it works fine. i have tried different usb ports but no joy. i even tried a second game pad. nothing.the mouse and key board still work even when the game pad option is applied but i have seen this in other games. has anyone else had a problem with this? any hints?

Dude, just use your mouse and keyboard. Controller are for noobies at PC.

im am aware that i can use the keyboard and mouse and in many games i prefer that method but for this game I would prefer to use a controller. your reply does to help me in any way and to be honest is quite rude.

Thats why he still needs school for education ;-)
Vicshort if your using wireless controller ensure its turned on before launching game.
[Edit] i notice the salespage says "Partial controller support" only that could be the issue, maybe theres something about it in the manual http://cdn.steampowered.com/Manuals/216910/OOAM_Manual_INT.pdf

thanks for the reply GameplayCrush but it is a wired gamepad and in fact i have tried 2 different controllers to make sure it wasn't a faulty gamepad but still nothing. in any other game i try using a controller it works fine it just this game thats giving me trouble. Im stumped

The game lets you choose between two kinds of controls; you can use either the keyboard or the Xbox® 360 controller for Windows®. You can select the controls you want to use in the game options menu. ***this is right from the mauual and i have selected the controller option and yes it is a xbox360 controller but no joy :(

I figured it out, and it seems to be an issue with having more than one usb input plugged into my computer. When I unplug everything else (mouse, keyboard, flashdrive) the game will recognize my controller input. It's very annoying, and may be caused because I'm using a logitech mouse and keyboard. Hopefully this works for you, let me know.

I also found that unplugging the Logitech reciever for my mouse fixed the controller issue. I then launched game in Steam Big Picture Mode and can play with the controller.

What is is with Logitech products breaking games?
