Gamepad Support?
I found several mentions of gamepad support when deciding to buy this game, but after installing it all the gamepad seems to work for is navigating the menus. So then I saw in update 1.0.3 something about gamepad configuration being temporarily removed -- any chance it's going to come back? Or is something just going wrong on my pc? I'm not quite mad or anything since the Steam listing doesn't list controller support, just sad because I probably won't end up playing until gamepad support is working. Any updates? Or even if I could mousemove... basically, some way to play without a keyboard...

We are reviewing GamePad support in the Expansion at the moment.

At this point I cannot confirm inclusion though.

Cool, thanks for the reply. For what it's worth, buying an expansion/DLC to get better controller support is definitely all good with me, so hopefully that's a datapoint in favor! "If you build it, I will buy"

I have to imagine controller support is something that would get added to the main game too, even if the dev is looking into it alongside with the DLC development. Limiting something like that to the DLC seems pretty unoptimal. But obviously I can´t speak for the devs and we got devs here, so eh.

So, I saw that Big Picture support has been added in a (sort of) recent update! Haven't tried it yet, but since it's on sale I figured I'd pick up the DLC too. Thanks devs!

Please devs, implement the RANGER'S TAILWHIP to the gamepad support, it's the only thing I can't handle with the controller.

And how can I make shortcuts for the psionics? (the keybinding menu tell me it's MOD+ D-pad UP for example, how do I do this?)

@katukinabarra you press a on the ability in the psionics menu then scroll to add shortcut I think.

Yeah, I got a chance to try it out last night, and it was nice! And Hobo Baron is right, you can open the context menu on a psionic power and add (or remove) it from the shortcuts, in the same way as with the inventory and item shortcuts.

Yeah, I achieved it thanks to you boys and girls. the only thing I can't do with the gamepad is to reach the menu you get when you press the "escape" key. But I don't mind, as I only use it to quit the game or save my game (when I have finished by that day

thanks for everything)
