Controller cannot be used in every menu
« on: July 15, 2014, 05:57:22 PM »
Hi,

I'm playing the game on a pc running Ubuntu and I'm using an XBOX controller. Sadly, the controller cannot be used to control every menu in the game and I'm forced to use a keyboard and a mouse in certain cases.

On the top of my head, these menu are unusable with a controller:

  • Game creation in local and multiplayer
  • Network game browsing

I'd like to be able to use the controller exclusively to play the game.

Thanks!

On Steam in the list of features it says "Partial Controller Support", so this is not really a bug. It's a good feature suggestion though! :)

Why don't you just buy a wireless mouse? Or a mouse with a REALLY long wire :D

Because Controller support is trying to be done and Mr. Dev. is working as hard as he can. Give him time, because creating controller support for computer-based games is actually not as easy as Keyboard and Mouse support.
