Full controller support for PC?

Recommended Posts

Recently i bought a Nintendo switch,and with that a pro controller.What that this have to do with KSP?keep Reading:

When i realized steam has pro controller support i inmidiatly began playing PC games with it.Surprisingly KSP doesnt support this on PC wich is extremly odd...

So im saying why not add controller support for PC?At least on steam.

They can't even get joysticks working on linux...

On Windows, you can use your controller, but like basically every other game with controller support, in KSP you have to map it out in the settings.

Yes, if your controller works through Directinput, which is likely the case if you can play other games, KSP will work. You just have to map your controls. Check if it shows as a game controller in Control Panel\Hardware and sound\Devices and Printers. (While you are here, you might want to calibrate it : right click and PropertiesGame controller settings, PropertiesSettings and Calibrate.) Then just launch KSP and set your controls in the settings.

About Linux, Taniwha just released an apparently (didn't test, don't run linux) rather decent input API.
