Mac Users: Super Meat Boy + USB Controller Remix (feat. Binding of Isaac)
Having never played the game before I created a thread on this forum to generate discussion regarding game control input.
The best way to play? With a light heart. Don't take things too seriously and don't let yourself get frustrated. Enjoy the humor and the comical graphic design / game design. Just have fun.
I have a controller, but I personally prefer using the keyboard. I find it to be more precise.
Great advice, but keyboard's really take it out of my hands. Especially since I type so much, and also play guitar. If I was a massage therapist or something I'd never play video games. I'd probably ice skate instead.
It has support for both DirectX input and Direct Input (normal controller that works on every OS). Haven't tried it in direct input for SMB yet, but remapping to keyboard should work
The d-pad on the F510 is fantastic for SMB! Personally I wouldn't have lasted long on a keyboard :p
Logitech Rumble Gamepad F510, best investment for gaming on a PC! There's also a wireless version, but I prefer the wired on (no batteries or connection problems)
Thanks you for the recommendation! I'll look into this controller if I get more games I'd want to use a controller with. However, currently all the games I play with d-pads are "retro," so I stick with my usb NES and SNES controllers...
I'm a little curios about how playing using SNES controller would work out. If you decide to give it a try, please post here how it turned out.
I don't know about controllers, though. I have played and completed the game using only keyboard but the game itself encourages the use of an xbox controller which a lot of people seem to prefer. After all, the game was made for Xbox. However, there's no official support for Xbox controller, or any controller for what I know, on Mac so you'd have to remap the controls using Keyboard Companion or such. Same goes for TBoI as far as I know since Flash doesn't have controller support at all.
IDK, I like them, they work really well. At least they work really well with illegally downloaded NES and SNES and Sega roms (so I'm told, I do not engage in or endorse such illegal activities).
Unfortunately I have not yet gotten this to work for Binding Of Isaac or Super Meat Boy. The Binding Of Isaac's options menu says "Gamepad? use JoyToKey (google it!)" UNFORTUNATELY this program is not available for OSX, and I have had no luck finding an alternative.
So my new question is what do mac users do? What do we use? There is no alternative control method recommended for Super Meat Boy and I know I'm going to burn my retinas out playing this game, do I have to ruin the tendons in my hands as well?
It is my utmost desire to play these games with a d-pad, but google and CNet have not been able to help me. What does this forum recommend that I try?
