Controller Support Feedback

pinned #24


FYI I’ve been using the Steam Controller (emulating keyboard/mouse) with Last Epoch and it works great. Couple of suggestions:

  • Please keep the option to disable the native controller support. Initially I had some spurious input, it turned out it was because the native controller support was also detecting the controller and reacting to trigger input.
  • Every time I boot the game, I have to go disable the native controller support. It would be great if the game could save this state…

The mappings I use are similar to the ones I use for other ARPGs. Last Epoch doesn’t seem to have a need to hold the shift key to stand still (unlike most other games) and this actually makes it easier to map to the Steam Controller, and to play with less hand strain.

I tried the game’s native controller support at first, but for me the right stick mouse movement doesn’t work well enough for ranged skills where you need to aim, like hammer throw. I really hope the controller support improves, for me this is not just a preference, it’s an accessibility feature. I get too much hand pain from using a mouse.

Like others have mentioned, some sort of directional or auto-aim would make the builtin controller support to be usable for ranged skills. Or possibly make the right stick snap the mouse to the middle of the screen in neutral position, and make the mouse move proportionally outwards relative to how much you move the stick. Not sure how well that would work though, some sort better support for aiming would probably be more natural.


Thanks again for the feedback guys, meanwhile I can confirm that the shop bug has been fixed, it’s now possible to purchase and sell items wih the controller.
Also warpath when using a controller has been reworked. Both fixes are coming in the next patch :wink:


Since this is the only topic i found about controllers I have an Xbox One controller id’e like to setup but I dono where to begin I see Xinput ingame I have looked it up but none say for Xbox One controller or Windows 10 I kinda need a turtorial if you please?


Hi! Xbox one controllers should be working out of the box without issues, you should be able to fire up the game and move the cursor with the right stick. If not, what kind of x1 controller are you using? How is it connected?


Well i tried to calabrate it and it crasd my game i dono how i had to force close but ill give it a go and just try some custom remaps to suit my liking and thanks!!


If it happens again / you find a way to reproduce the crash please let us know :+1:t2:


Hey guys. Any updates on controller support improvements?


Can I just confirm you’ve seen the controller improvements in Patch 0.7.0e?

Your most recent post in this thread appears to have been regarding an issue related to vendors, and that should have since been resolved.


Hi Sarno. I was more referring to auto aiming, versus using the right analog stick to aim ranged skills. I was wondering if there has been any changes to this, or any plans to change the manually aiming? Or make auto-aiming an option?


Hey! You guys gave us a lot of feedback about this matter and we are listening. We’ll be likely tweaking controller aiming but our dev resources are currently being allocated to other systems which are more important or essential to the game so we don’t have an eta as of today.


Thanks for the update. Good to hear that the aiming will be tweaked in the future. It’ll be nice to use a controller to sit back and play eventually. :slight_smile:


Yeah that is totally understandable. Thanks for taking the time to give us an update :slight_smile:
