Couldn't you just type "exec 360controller_pc.cfg" in the autoexec.cfg file?

Also, is there a way to get the game to work with PS3 controllers?

Use motioninjoy to make your PC handle the ps3 controller like a 360 controller

On the contrary, PC gaming is the absolute best platform for splitscreen. Eyefinity/Surround? Each player gets a whole screen all to themselves? I've done something like this with Left 4 Dead 2 (though I had to use SoftTH as my GFX card didn't support either) and it was amazing.

Seriously, splitscreen gaming on PC rocks.

This is impossible. The source engine is not setup in any way to support splitscreen on PC. It only supports it on X360.

Um... dude? It is the EXACT same engine wether you play it on Windows, OS X, PS3, or XBox 360. It isn't a completely different engine for each platform.

That's weird. I totally just played splitscreen L4D last week, and I have a working mod of my Alien Swarm splitscreen mod on PC. Thanks for the information though, where'd you get it? Your little brother?

type in console "in_forceuser 1" - and second player will be controlled by keyboard and mouse (in_forceuser 2 - 3rd player etc)
You can control 1st player through x360 joypad.
I'm trying to fix mouse/joypad working together and 4 player local coop now.
