Should I play this game with my keyboard or a controller?
I'm having troubles side-stepping in this game with the keyboard. Hitting the Z+X keys (and the a direction on my keyboard) at the same time is very difficult. And this is making it very difficult for me to defeat the first boss in this game, as I cannot side-step to dodge its attacks. So, if I am going to play this game with my PS3 controller, how can I configure it so that I can Chantelise with it?

How did you configure your controller to make it compatible with a Steam game? I use a PS3 controller, so I'll like to know how to make it compatible with a Steam game. I simply cannot play Chantelise with a keyboard, unless I plan on not getting past the first boss. Which I do. So I must configure my PS3 controller to work with Steam, in order to beat Chantelise and Super Meat Boy. Neither of those games are playable without a PS3 configured to work with Steam.

Just try some other Key-configurations. I got Attack on 'W' and Jump on 'Space', making it pretty easy to hit both buttons at the same time.

Thanks for the tip, MehSux.

I use a PS3 controller.

Motionjoy's DS3 Tool works wonders for games like this. You can set all of your keybindings on the controller and have custom configurations for different games.

Get Better DS3 and you don't even need an internet connection. Better DS3 fixes all of the problems that DS3 Tool has. You still need DS3 Tool for the initial installation but you're fine after that.

Stock wired X360 controller.

You need both sticks, so either that or PS3 pads should work, but as usual, it's matter of personal preferences.

REMEMBER: The pad/keyboard CANNOT be configured in-game! You have to run the settings application (custom.exe) to do that.

Since Chantelise has digital movement (only in the eight directions), you could probably just take any controller and use Joy2Key to convert the buttons into keystrokes. Personally, I'd take MehSux's recommendation of changing your control scheme, but that's just me.

I prefered using my controller personally, I felt like I had far more control over myself.

I'm using Motion Joy and a PS3 controller to play this game. It is excellent control!

I prefer to use my DS3 and MotionJoy, like many others. However, since MiJ is buggy like no other, I have also found a decent Keyboard layout.

This could be different for anyone, but I'll try to explain it. First, set your left hand on the Keyboard. Your pinky should probably fall either on the SHIFT or CTRL key. Obvo, your thumb will fall on SPACE and the rest of your fingers should naturally fall on the WASD area. That is half of the keymap. Set WASD to movement, (LSHIFT or LCTRL) to Camera Rotate Left, and SPACE to jump. Now comes the hard part. If your left pinky fell on either LSHIFT or LCTRL, mirror that with your right one. With your pinky there, let your hand fall on the keys. Your right thumb should also be on SPACE. that's intentional. For me, my right fingers fell on the OKL; keys combo. So now you can map (relative to me) K to attack, O to magic. there are a couple of other buttons to map. I set Start and Select to ENTER and BACKSPACE, respectively. Back or Escape is ESCAPE. The target select was either I ( not L) or ;

honestly, the specific keys don't matter. I just decided that if I was going to play a game that was made for a controller with a keyboard, I should use a layout that looked like a DS3.

Let me know if that doesn't help.
