Controller Support?

#1Vodoochild81Posted 2/18/2012 11:20:42 AM
Does this game have plug and play 360 controller support or is it straight keyboard and mouse like the other mass effect games?

Bioware has confirmed no controller support due to "development time constraints" (BS). However there's a profile for Pinnacle Game Profiler that I've been using for ME2 for the past week that works really well (and perhaps better than default 360 controls).

really? can you tell me where i can download this profile? Where can I get Pinnacle? Is it free?

How could it work better? The menu is made for GUI...

Just get used to keyboard and mouse. Like you I was disappointed in lack of controller support. I played the games on my 360 and it felt good.

Played the first two games on PC again since I wanted to PC ME3. Got used to it.



Then I tried the ME3 demo on 360. I was all messed up, it felt to slow. It just plain sucked. I guess I got used to the MUCH better aiming and controlling of powers.

Here's my Pinnacle Game Profile for ME2:

It's a modified version of this:

Basically the 8 quickslots have been mapped to RB, X, Y, and B so I really never have to open up the power menu except at the beginning of a mission to assign powers to the quickslots.

Controls:
LT - Aim
RT - Fire
LB - Power Menu
RB - Quickslots 1/2 (hold)
X - Quickslots 3/4 (hold)
Y - Quickslots 5/6 (hold)
B - Quickslots 7/8 (hold)
A - Action/Sprint/Cover
LS - reload
RS - melee
BACK - holster
START - Pause/quicksave (hold)
DPad left - squadmate 1 command
DPad right - squadmate 2 command
DPad up - Form up squadmates
DPad down - cycle weapons

PGP is $25 but has a 30 day trial (with a time limit per use during the trial). I thought it was worth it for ME3 alone since I don't want to settle for inferior console hardware/graphics, but I'm no KB&M player.

I made a mistake above: Y is quickslots 3/4 and X is quickslots 5/6. The reason being is that I reserve the first four quickslots (RB and Y) for Shepard's powers and then the remaining four (X and B) for the squadmates'. Just felt better for me that way.

Xpadder does the same thing and it's a bit cheaper. $9.99 USD
