360 controller support

Post Aug 20th '16, 02:07

I've been more and more interested in replaying the entire trilogy with a 360 controller. After playing Marathon 2's port on the 360 I really miss having things like rumble when the player fires his assault rifle and so forth.

I'm wondering if anyone has managed to get the 360 pad working with Aleph One? I've tried but I haven't been able to fiddle with the axis. Additionally for some reason my character just moves forward when I'm not touching the controls.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this a feature of SDL2?

I remember when I used the Xbox (the first one) controller I had to zero the analog sticks with the XBCD driver. I'm not sure if that is the same with the 360 controller. I don't think you will find a lot of controller users on here as the game was originally meant to be played with keyboard only.

Is this a separate build? I can only locate the internal joystick function. But it requires mapping the axis's individually and it never seems to work quite as well as I'd like.

I'd imagine it's quite different since the original Xbox' controller used DirectInput wheras the 360 uses Xinput.

I'm just wondering since it was supported in an official port of Marathon 2.
