Controller support for in-game menus
Since the devs still appear to be supporting this game (added trading cards), any chance of working controller support for in-game menus please, or even better, offer full controller support instead of partial?

Having to switch back and forth between controller and mouse/keyboard to navigate and play the game is majorly annoying; removing the option to just sit back and play, especially when Steam's in Big Screen mode.

Edit: for clarification, I'm using an official Xbox controller.

how about controller support for survival that would be a good step foword

Yeah right, it's quite annoying.
I use an official Xbox controller too.
It works pretty well EXCEPT that the right stick to aim is clumsy, I mean, the aiming ain't smooth at all.
It always has some lag between where you actually aim and where it finally points.
I've tried to play with mouse + keyboard but it's just worse.
Good game thus far, except the right stick thingy and the partial controller support.

I also agree that this game should have full controller support. It ruins the fluidity of the experience having to reach for my mouse to unpause the game etc.

I agree, controller support in the menu would be nice. I don't get why some developers only give partial support.

Full controller support
Ability to disable rumbling
Ability to rebind controls

I'd love to play this game but it's unbearable at this time. The worst part is it's nowhere enar new. These things would have been implemented long ago if they were going to do it.

I agree, I play this game on Big Picture using my Xbox controller. I've had to plug a mouse in to the keyboard USB so it'll reach over to the sofa just so I can click some menus. Oddly enough, you can use the controller to click Continue between levels but not on the intro menus.

I'd be so happy if they added full support. I've clocked up 10 hours on this game and it's a great time waster.

Was just coming here to post the same. Recently setup my TV for games and found no controller support in menus super annoying.

Couldn't imagine it would be too complex to add the ideas posted here.

Please Devs .. help out your fans!

seems odd that a game that started on X360 doesn't have full controller support

I agree. It makes no sense to have controller support in-game but not in the menus. Please fix this!

Bah, I asked for this like two years ago and never got a response.
I think any update that doesn't immediately increase their profit doesn't even get a glance.

That's okay, the game sucks anyway. It doesn't hold a candle to Super Stardust on the PS3 or Beat Hazard. Buy those instead of this POS.
Plaid Mar 20, 2014 @ 11:51am 
On the contrary, I think the game is original and fun to play.
