Partial Controller Support?

#1fisheye11Posted 9/27/2013 8:12:06 AM
I'm not to into playing games on PC. Thuogh there are many games only for PC that I would like to play. I'm horrible with keyboard/mouse controls. So I would like to play with a game pad. Some games like TF2 and Loadout say they have "Partial Controller Support". What does that mean exactly? Is there something left out of the controls when using a game pad?

Any insight will be helpful.

it means you may have to do some tweaking to get controller support enabled. like maybe navigating through a menu with a mouse to enable controller support.

Oh is that all? I was worried it would leave something out of the game play.

Thanks for the info.

You might have to use third-party software as well.

Most of the time you need to use the keyboard to enter text, like a character name.

Usually full controller support means once you start the game you can use a controller for pretty much everything.

Partial controller support usually means you can use the controller for the main things like controlling your character but you may need the mouse or keyboard to navigate some menus or type something (naming your character or chat.)

Dark Souls is listed as having partial controller support, but the only thing I've seen that I've needed to use the mouse and keyboard for is entering a name for your character at the very beginning of the game. That's the kind of stuff that makes games listed as having only partial controller support.
