[Poll] What gamepad will you use to play HFA?
« on: January 15, 2015, 09:39:05 AM »
You can also vote on this poll if you don't want to create a forum account.

If you prefer to play with a gamepad as opposed to keyboard, and for purposes of offering your gamepad an auto-profiling/mapping when you first start the game, we wanted to know what gamepads were the most popular amongst you.



This doesn't mean the game won't support the controllers that are not as popular: you'll still be able to remap the keys of whichever controller you choose to use—the game supports all controllers that are recognized by your OS—, so don't worry if you don't see your controller listed there.


If your controller doesn't happen to be in our database, you might need to take a few seconds when you start the game to remap the controller buttons to your liking (in-game). Pretty simple. Or, later down the line, you can give us 3 minutes of your time to help us populate our profiling database with information from your controller.

Note 1: We do know there is a pretty awesome dev library called SDL that handles this kind of thing. We're looking into it, but we wanted to have a good idea of controller popularity.

Note 2: You can naturally choose to play with the keyboard if you like that better!

I will most certainly be using a PS3 controller to play HFA.

I'll most likely be using a wireless Xbox 360 controller.

The Xbox One controller is simply the best possible PC controller. It's so good. All y'all 360 controller users, check it out. I can't even use a 360 controller anymore.

Wait, this isn't an argument?

Oh. I'd probably use a DualShock 4 if I had one, for the D-Pad.

Voted Sony Dualshock (3 & 4) controller! ^ ^
I usually play games on PC with the keyboard. And HFA probably will be one of them. On thoose games where the use of a gamepad is necessary or recommended I have a Power Games controller... Basically it has the same buttons and shape of a Sony controller. I feel comfortable with Sony pads, so yup, that's my vote.

I'm currently playing most of my games with the wired XBox 360 controller, but I've got a wireless one coming in shortly from Amazon :P.

I'd definitely love to play HFA using a gamepad, more than with a keyboard.

My first post here, yay!

If the controls don't exceed the traditional NES layout (doubtful) I'd so be playing Heartforth with a USB modified OEM NES controller.

+10 retro points :p The game can definitely be played essentially with a dpad + 4 buttons + start/select. However, there are a couple of handy shortcuts in the shoulder buttons, so I guess you'll have to try out what works best for you.

Been using a DualShock 4 for most  games but just managed to get my Wii U Pro Controller to work as a Xinput controller and may prefer it and the battery life is amazing so undecided.

The Kick Ass Dual Shock 4 for me as well!  I use it for almost every PC game that is not an FPS, RTS & Dungeon-RPG

I honestly haven't a clue what controller I'm using. there's no label, except for one spot that oddly looks like there should be a label (but isn't). it doesn't show up in device manager, and pcsx2 simply states "DX AUTO PAD" with a type of "Dualshock 2". the right pad contains sony symbols (sorta, they look different from sony's design, but they're clearly the normal shapes rather than letters), and other than the normal set of buttons, the center contains 5 buttons. top left: turbo. top right: clear. bottom left: select. bottom right: start. center bottom: home button? it has a house with a square in it, and the button itself is a clear circle. for some reason, I seem to recall "madcatz controller", but I'm not sure if it's because this is a madcatz controller, or if it's because I was looking at madcatz controllers before my brother-in-law practically gave me this one. it doesn't look like the madcatz controllers on a google search though. it's wireless, and utilizes a wireless receiver, but that is also old and damaged, and no longer shows an sort of identifiable feature

for all intents and purposes, though, it's a PS2 controller. it's old, but it works on any steam game or emulator that allows the use of controllers, even if they only identify it as an "auto pad".

picture of the controller is in the attachment.

EDIT: yuck why does it not show a thumbnail but the entire picture at the bottom? sorry for the size of it.

Ahhhh, did that controller come from Hong Kong maybe?  Or a shady corner of Akihabara?

Depends on how many keys are used frequently. If there are a lot of keys, then xbox 360 controller, if not that much then keyboard for ultimate accuracy.
