Controller doesn't work.
I'm using PS3 controllers with my PC. For whatever reason, I can skip over the logo screen when you first open the game by hitting the X button on the controller, but once I hit the title screen, nothing will bring up the menu. Once I hit enter to bring up the menu, nothing on the controller is recognized as an input in the game. Considering I can't even navigate the options menu with the keyboard this has made the game unplayable. Is this a bug or is there some workaround to get this functioning?

Edit: There is no option to register the controller with my setup, so that won't work to fix the problem.

Made some progress, some if the controller works. No vibration function, I was able to register it, but the D-pad doesn't work so I can't get through the tutorial.

Well, not sure if the same problem, but I've noticed the Steam Big Picture mode can interfere with certain mappings in games.

Usually only on the first launch and I think it only happens if you've registered the controller in Steam. Usually fixed by pressing the Xbox button and exiting the overlay again.

Of course, you have a PS3 controller so not sure if that helps you...

I eventually go it working. Took a reboot and a bit of fiddling. The method in the FAQ definitely didn't work, though. Maybe it does for an Xbox controller, but it didn't work for me. Trying to set up the PS3 controller as an Xbox controller just screwed up my mappings. And it wasn't just a first launch thing. I restarted the game a good 20 times before I was able to finally get it to work.
