Is there Xbox 360 controller support for ToMI?

  • If it is rather similar to W&G then it will work fine...
    I played W&G with the xbox controller, and except for two bugs where I had to revert to the mouse to trigger a hotspot for an action it worked out fine!

  • Thats great news :D

    Happy to hear this, thanks man

  • except this game isnt coming to xbox?

  • Yeah, but we dont have to use the keyboard :P

    I would not be so sure about it in the long run, it is up to TTG but I assume if Sam and Max and Wallace and Grommit sells well it will end up there too.

  • Yeah, Secret of Monkey Island is coming to XBLA
    Wouldnt be suprised if this was released on it

    And who makes xbox? ;)

    Not only is the 360 controller capable of working on Windows, Microsoft is pushing for PC game developers to support the 360 controller to boost hardware sales. The earlier comment about it working on W&G was referring to the PC version of the game. (If it wasn't, then I'll confirm that sentiment myself.)

    It was, I was playing W&G with an XBOX 360 controller attached to a notebook computer, this gave me the comfort of a console, which is mainly sitting in the living room in a cozy chair.

    And yes Microsoft is pushing the XBOX 360 controller big time on a PC, there are certain limitations, if a games for windows title supports gamepads (which they mostly do because they also are released on the xbox most of the times) it has to support the xbox controller as standard controller!

    I am not sure since I do not work at TTG how the control scheme of Monkey Island will be but I assume that the XBOX controller still will work!
    At least I hope so!
    (Actually I am looking forward to it to play TMI in the living room like I did with W&G)

    Yes and no. You can use the analog stick to move Guybrush, but you'll still have to use a mouse to control the cursor. It's a bit weird but it works

    Perhaps someone should suggest 360 controller implementation to TT. People ought to be able to use the second analog stick for mouse movement (and map the rest of the functions to whatever button they want). Perhaps they wouldn't even need specific support for the 360 controller if they implemented a system that let you map all of the functions to whatever buttons you wanted.
