Aiming with gamepad

Postby Pirate » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:05 pm

How can I aim further away using gamepad ? Everything else works fine except for that. With mouse I can shoot up to the edge of the screen, but with gamepad I can only shoot at a fixed radius. I aim with my right analog stick and it'd be nice if I could aim further or closer by moving it up and down respectively.

EDIT: If it's not possible at all I'd like to know too. I want to start playing coop but I'm waiting to see if I can fix this or I just have to deal with it.

I'd really like to know if it's possible or not.

you did not mention what you operating system was, but please note that many linux users reported the same issue and FB is aware of it and will fix it some point in the future (citation needed). jose

Oh, sorry. Somehow I forgot to write that.
I got an ASUS M50Vn laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium and a Logitech Chillstream gampad. It's basically a generic XBox 360 pad. I'm not 100 % sure but it's probably using the same drivers. The Hardware Manager shows XUSB Gampad.

I assume it should be possible to aim wherever I want using gamepad, right ?

In fact it's not possible at the moment. We plan to change this shortly by rewriting the gamepad stuff, but the original behaviour is the "fixed" range mode. Sorry!
