Native Controller Support questions.
I've tried to search before posting but couldn't find very relevant results, so figured I would ask.

I know controller support is on progress, but does it really mean 'full controller support' or just in the end, like many games sadly, support for Xbox 360 controller and a mere partial for other controller types like Logitech Rumblepad, Razer etc?

If it's not too selfish to ask, kindly support other controllers as well.

probably is xbox 360 controller

Don't see it as a problem. There are no such things as deadzone triggering and stuff like that on SHODN, so memorizing the Xbox buttons colors and letters will be your only concern.

We're using this extension to bring native controller support to SHODN:

It works great with a 360 pad (although the d-pad isn't yet supported), and I've also tried it on a SNES pad which is great fun! PS3 pads aren't yet supported by the looks of it and I can't be sure about other pads, but Alex is rewriting his extension to be much more comprehensive and he reckons that he could have a final version of it ready for the end of this week, which we'll get integrated in to the game asap.

I basically stopped playing this due to non-native pad support. Once this gets implemented it will be greatness and I know many people will buy it based off recomendations.

So we're waiting for the plugin to be finished, or will there be a patch now followed by a patch later? No pressure Alex, just lots of eager waiting ninjas!

I'm just waiting for controller support before i pick this up. the game looks AWESOME! though i must admit, really enjoyed the flash version.

There's an updated version ready now and then we'll be updating as soon as Alex has finished his latest extension! Just waiting on the go ahead to publish the update.

Megadev, just wanted to give a BIG shout on your activity on these forum. Many thanks for keeping everyone up to date on whats happening with the game. I'm sure everyone appreciates your input to us consumers.

No worries - I've really enjoyed getting some decent feedback about the game, and I'm still learning things about SHODN thanks to all of you, despite having been developing and playing the game for about a year now!

Will you guys post a thread when the update is live? The game is small, so we probably won't notice it downloading. Is it still not going out today?

Click the Downloads dropdown in your library, it'll show up there when it's out.

I believe Adult Swim are still testing the game and then Valve have to take a look at it too - there's also been a lot of last-minute fixes and tweaks which pushed the update back a bit, but it should be released before the weekend. Sorry for the delay, but it should be worth it. :) And yes, we'll keep you updated here on the forums.

Thanks for the heads-up! At almost 20 hours already, I'm still enjoying this game. Just need the update to get the glitched achievement and Horror item, and I'll be close to 100%!
Megadev  [developer] Feb 28, 2013 @ 3:01pm 
Nicely done! I'm looking forward to seeing if the optimisations make a big difference on your machine. ;)

Thanks. All I have left to do is find 50 fairies (getting easier now that I know all the rooms they can spawn in) and stay underwater for 5 minutes. XPadder has made this possible so far, but I imagine I'll switch to the in-game controller support provided that it works with a PS2 controller (360's d-pad is awful and no good for twitch-based games like this).
