Game pad support?
I'm under the impression that this game supports game pads, but I can't find the selection to register one. The control mod menu doesn't register pad movements and I can't find anything that says "turn this thing on". Where should I be looking?

I had no problem with gamepads, but as you see, there is no clue how to turn to gamepad on or off. Try the x360ce or XPadder program. I will workaround Directinput gamepads to work with XInput drivers. My both gamepads with Xinput work fine. You can try it.

In the Aquaria game folder, there is a AQConfig.exe. Run that, and there is an option to enable the gamepad.

Thanks, pyro_guy7, that did the trick.

I didn't see a selection for the controls in the options menu, which is what led me to make this topic. But if it's right in front of me, all for the better when I actually get around to booting up the game again.

90% sure the in-game options won't enable gamepad, but I'm glad to know it works through AQConfig. Thanks pyro_guy7!

All of the tutorials still have mouse and keyboard stuff.

Oh well, gotta figure it out.

Thank you! I hate playing with m/k.

Just a reminder that you will have a really hard time composing a song using a controller.

Controller = Swimming is great with a controller.
Composing a Song/Changing form = Keyboard is easier, if I remember correctly you have 8 notes.

This game is played with K&M.

"This game is played with K&M"
A bit subjective, right? Like, if this game really is not that good with controllers i'll end up not buying it :/

I dare say a higher percentage of people own this game not on it's own merits, but rather due to indie bundles. It's been included in at least three by this point.
