yeah tried it my self game wouldnt reconize the controller. May be the only other way is if you have a controller that has software that you can change the keys on the controller to represent keys on the keyboard.

So, controller support yay or nay?

It doesn't show on the store page. And it would be absurd not to include it since it came out on the 360 first...

Works fine with my 360 controller.

I use a Logitech 710 which emulates an XBox 360 controller...or at least does in everything else...LOL. Anyone else?

I have a Logitech Rumblepad2. It's been working perfectly so far with any game or emulator I've tried. Not with Flashback. Flashback is perfect as a game for PS3. But the PC version sucks. Just because of the controller issue. It's simply stupid to have a game working only with one type of gamepad! And no in-game option to reconfigure the buttons?

I've even tried to mess with the ini file as suggested at another thread. I've managed to reconfigure the jumb button and to "fix" the climb up/down problem, but the problem remains with the elevator. More than that, the right analogue stick, although it's perfectly smooth and it captures the slightest move in Windows gamepad settings, it's jerky when I'm trying to use it to aim the gun at a specific place.

I'm sorry, I'm not a programmer and I won't spend more time for it. If there ever is a fix for this, then I'll consider buying it. Otherwise I'll just stick with the PS3 version. I won't be able to play it anywhere else but the living-room TV but then I wouldn't be able to play this PC version anywhere else either...

Edit: I forgot to mention that no matter what resolution I choose during the game, it stretches it to 4:3 (my screen's analogy)

I've got a Xbox 360 wrapper for Controls it emulates the 360 hardware lets me use any generic controller.

Sonic Allstar racing only accepts Xbox 360 controllers

Sega game on a PC only uses a Console Controller very odd combo.

Anyway here.

I installed the Xbox 360 Accessories 1.2 and my USB Xbox controller now works!

After all this time I broke down and bought an actual XBox 360 controller and wireless receiver when I encountered the same problem in Deadlight where the controller just would not work...

And had the same problem...WTF? LOL

I then after much hell (removing drivers, removing all ghost devices, yada yada) discovered that by UNPLUGING the secondary controller I had FIXED THE PROBLEM (despite in not being the 'main' controller)...don't know why most games have no issue, ridiculous but there it is...

Oneself uses "Xpadder" it emulates keyboard strokes by use of a controller. Works fine. Free download for previous versions.

Someone posted these instructions on Steam a long time ago for Mini Ninjas:

1. Go to Device and Printers in your control panel
2. copy the name of your Gamepad (e.g. Logitech RumblePad 2 USB)
3. open "regedit" (Windows + R)
4. search for the name of the gamepad (STRG + F)
5. Replace all results with "XBOX 360 Controller for Windows" (without ")

Ex: OEM Title: Controller (Logitech Wireless F710) to OEM Title: Controller (XBOX 360 Controller for Windows)

Should only be one entry per each connected pad.

Mini Ninjas would not recognize a non M$ brand game pad due to how your game pad's name is entered in registry - This may help and if it does for non M$ game pad users let me know...or maybe I'll just try the demo

my xbox 360 controller worked right away.
make sure you have the drivers installed for controller, or check via windows update
the xbox controller driver should also come with windows update.
dont need to search for that page.

I finally got the game working fine with an Xinput gamepad but still the right stick (gun targetting) is "jerky", mostly in the beginning of the movement. Anyone else had the same problem?
