Does any one have good suggestions as to whats the best way to get an xbox360 controller to work in this game?
You could try this
I've known about it for a while but never tried it The few times I used a controller all i did was some digging for ores and I used Xpadder which worked fine with smart cursor on.
Had a look at that but could understand how to get it working as it seams to require 'gamelauncher' which looks like its steam specific
I've used antimicro (like xpadder but open source) see: https://github.com/Ryochan7/antimicro
it would have been good if they built gamepad controls like on xbox version, that i've heard about, back into the game.
I have some muscle weakness and my left hand isn't so good these-days with keyboard controls - find it awkward and much prefer a game controller like the xbox360's
