:eek: was really hoping to get some people to agree with me that this game needs to be updated to accept the xbox 360 controller. maybe if enough people post in this thread they will update it!
please post if u agree with me. this game deserves to be played the origional way. with a controller!:D

I have the game myself and would like to see controller support.

Because of the lack of controller support, I find myself sticking sausages up my buttocks unfortunately...

The controller is not the original way. Oddworld was released for both PC and PlayStation. Also, I think it's much easier with a keyboard. Especially when using the Gamespeak feature.

yea but when ur playing this game on a big tv while sitting on a couch a keyboard isnt the best method. besides the gamespeak feature can easily be modified to holding one button then all the joystick directions can be used as speak commands.
i appreciate your insight but i was hoping to get replies from just the people who would want to see this game work with a controller. You already have your keyboard now let me work on getting the controller to work too. thanks!

If I remember correctly from when I have played it on the playstation, you held either L1 or R1 and then used the Triangle, Square, O and X buttons.

But you can always use a emulator program to assign keys like Pinnacle game profiler or xpadder, right?

Try XPadder (www.xpadder.com), works for most games and supports the PC 360 controller. I have it, just haven't tried it with these games yet.

Believe me, it's a lot more intuitive than the PC controls.

Alright how does LT / RT work ?

If you want to play with a controller, the PS1 recommended button configuration is as follows for a PS1/PS2 or Xbox 360 controller:

PS/XB
L1/LB: Gamespeak
L2/LT: Gamespeak
R1/RB: Run
R2/RT: Sneak
∆/Y: Jump
O/B: Throw
X/A: Crouch
□/X: Action

Oddworld does support the Xbox controller. I just tried it (after remembering it does) and it works great. Well, except for the triggers, but that's a given since they're like an additional joystick. (technically)

I'm using a Wireless Xbox 360 Controller for Windows. Just turn it on (wireless) or connect it (wired) before you launch the game. Launch the game, and then go to Options and choose Controller. There click the down arrow on your keyboard until you get " -PC" (The forums don't show more than one space. Before "-PC" there should be a HUGE blank space) selected. Then just press Enter to continue and voilą. :)

My current set is:
LB:Gamespeak 1/Sneak (The game insists on using the same key for both actions)
RB:Gamespeak 2/Run
Y: Jump
B: Throw
A: Crouch
X: Action

Note that Oddworld refers to "X" as "C" and "Y" as "D".

I reckon the whole Oddbox will have controller support.

Under keyboard options, you need to set whatever default it is to "run".
