You could try to use 3rd party software that allows you to macro an ordinary game controller. Make a list of the normal game keys that you want to use, for example your WSAD to the directional pad etc., and program your controller accordingly. I know there are a few programs available out there that allow you to do that. I'm not certain if this is what you were looking for but it's an option.

I did something similar with my Logitech G13, and it plays flawlessly. I use my keyboard mainly for things like chat, and logging in or out. Other than that, I hardly have to touch it. Of course, the G13 having 25 fully programmable buttons does help, and is probably not what you are using. But the process for making it work should be the same. Hope this helps some.

very interesting stuff in link but unfortunately no help, they mention xpadder, but personally i don't like using third party software as some games don't allow things like this to be used

cheers for info though (=

to bind the controller here is pretty intense but well worth it. I run circles on the ground around my friends and no contest in space they just can't maneuver like me. The key is overlapping the functions. You can fit all the hot bar cmds and some.

I use a wired 360 controller. 1st get familiar with the terms: joy1 = start button / joy2 = select / joy3 = L3 button / joy4 = R3 button / joy5 = Left bumper / joy6 = Right bumber / joy7 = left trigger / joy8 Right trigger / joy9 = A button / joy10 = B button / joy11 = X button / joy12 = Y button / joypad_up = dpad up / joypad_down = dpad down / joypad_left = dpad left / joypad_right = dpad right / Lstick_up = left analog stick up / Lstick_down = left analog stick down / Lstick_left = left analog stick left / Lstick_right = left analog stick right / Rstick_up = right analog stick up / Rstick_down = right analog stick down / Rstick_right = right analog stick right / Rstick_left = right analog stick left

Combo keys are done with a plus sign ( + ) example: joy9+joy10 <~ this means you press both the A & B button on the controller for that action.

ingame under the keybind option you hover over the action and it gives you the cmd. You type right into the chat bar. Example: /bind target_next_enemy joypad_right+joy8 <~that means when i press and hold the right trigger and press right on the dpad it cycles through my enemies clockwise. /bind Target_prev_enemy joypad_left+joy8 <~ that cycles them counter clockwise.

It seems tough at 1st but can lead to a very personalized configuration like no other game offers. The key is that overlap, using select, start, bumpers, dpad and trigger buttons like an alt or shift for button combinations.

Some buttons already have function. the analogs will move you and look around and i think A button jumps on ground and the L & R trigger cycles targets by default.You should clear some individually as you bind to avoid conflicts.

This was the hardest game to config a controller to for me, but in the end every action was where i wanted it. I had to go back a few times and rethink my ink untill the setup was comfortable and fluid

Good luck.

Last guy that commented was actually the only useful comment out of the whole thread aside friom the beginning question. I find it fastenating how people with nothing helpful to say fill up threads like this where people like me are looking for answers. My response included.. Meaningless, but a thank you to Wickerrobot.
