    Hi - just wondered if there are any plans to enable game controllers?

    I use an Xbox controller in my PC for all Steam games and WGT is the only game I play outside of the Steam platform.

     

    It's a thought:)

    You have always been able to use controllers (i used to use one for WGT few years back).  I've used Xpadder for many many games and it works amazing.  It used to cost around $10.00.  I don't know if it's still pay or free, but either way, it's worth the price imo.  These two links can get you started:

    and the Xpadder forums  https://xpadder.com/forum4/index.php

    edit:  I notice you use steam too.  https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamController/comments/3y11jj/xpadder_setup/

     Now that WGT is on Steam, can you play it using an Xbox controller?

    Thank you Don. I'll give it a shot. If it doesn't cost too much. I might look into a Steam controller if it does.

    I would think it would still have to use the meter.  I don't know how it would do the clicks

    I couldn't get the download to install.  I was hoping to be able to assign the left click on my mouse to a gamepad button so I could use my thumb to hit the ball. As far as bringing the meter back and releasing it, I don't know how that would work. All academic now.
