Controller support is broken?
The only thing that works is pause and moving through pause menu. Any way I can fix this?

Try using a program like Xpadder or JoyToKey. I find those work really well in any game.

I actaully ended up using xpadder, I was just wondering if this game even had controller support

It had great controller support allowing you to walk at any speed. Now there's none. Someone mentioned using an old version of inputsystem.dll to make it work again.

Yes using the inputsystem.dll before 09/05/2013 will make joysticks/controllers work again. I found out about it here https://github.com/ValveSoftware/source-sdk-2013/issues/175

There is a link to download the older dll version on the page also. Anyone know why Valve removed perfectly good controller support late last year? Was it by accident by chance?

OK with joystick 1 and cl_forwardspeed 450 the water boat will either try to move forward or backward. If you set joystick 1 and cl_forwardspeed 0 it won't but then you can't control throttle with the controller and when you get off you can't walk forward! Plus while joystick is active it quickly recenters the view forward.

Instead of just removing joystick support altogether, why not just fix the air boat and car code to work well with controllers/joysticks?

Also why does cl_forwardspeed also affect sidespeed, while cl_sidespeed only affects sidespeed?
