# 1 Xbox 360 controller
07-29-2012, 07:48 AM
I been hearing a rumor that STO maybe coming out with a patch for keybinding for the Xbox 360 controller if this is true please post here. Also if you already use a Xbox controller tell me how it is.

I wish I had the tech skill to do the binding myself to setup the xbox controller, try looking for a video on youtube to walk me threw it but came up with nada on that. Maybe we need a video thread for dummies like me.

There is a topic on how to set up the keybinds to get the xbox 360 controller to fully work. It is somewhere on the forum ill look for the link. I do use an xbox 360 controller but i just havent bothered to set up the keybinds for it but it does work pretty well for ground. i tried it with space but it is way too crazy and i personally right now prefer using the keyboard and mouse in space in part because everything i read on setting up the xbox 360 controller to use all of your abilities takes at least 3 hours. However some of your abilities are already preset when you plug in the controller all you have to do is try every single button combination.

I currently use a Logitech dual action with a program called xpadder. The controller has 16 buttons. If you assign 1 Button to CTRL and 1 button to ALT (bringing your "action buttons" to 14) this gives you 42 options to assign as each button can perform 3 different commands.
Xpadder also allows me to make macros VERY easily
This works great for me and I rarely ever have to use mouse or keyboard (in combat anyway).

What is it about people trying to turn computers into kiddie consoles?

An X-box controller has something like 121 button combinations.
A computer keyboard has almost 10,000 button combinations.

An X-box controller moves in set increments.
A mouse moves precisely the amount you want it to.

Sorry, but graduate from the kiddie console and join the computer adults. lol

A traditional mouse only has 2-3 buttons. What is is about people wanting to use mice whenever they have a perfectly good keyboard??!? The NERVE of those guys, daring to use another input device! Sheesh.

(for the record, I use a joypad with 10 programmable buttons, plus a D-Pad. WITH a mouse, and WITH a full size keyboard. Just because you have a third device for certain situations doesn't mean you stop using the other two. I could easily map in a Pedal and bind it to "Redistribute Shield & Fire All Weapons" if I was bothered enough...)

Just to nit-pick, STO doesn't USE 10,000 button combinations, and an Xbox Controller has analog sticks, so it isn't set increments either. And most of the time you want to jump the cursor quickly from one point on the screen to another is to click on abilities, which with a controller you would already have mapped to a specific button combination anyway.

On a side note, I have a Xbox 360 controller hooked up to my computer, and I use it for CO, PSO, and Tera. I don't actually use it for STO though, mostly because I'm too lazy to redo the keybinds for space.
