Build Number:  1.0.1-drmfreef1

Platform: Personal Computer

Description: The game does not appear to respond to input from the keyboard, mouse buttons, or controllers. The mouse cursor only appears on the main menu screen if the left mouse button is held down after clicking off of the window.

Repro Steps: Start up the game and wait for the main menu to appear. Click outside of the game window. Click and hold the left mouse button down on the game window to view the mouse cursor.

UPDATE

Unplugging the controllers enables mouse input. I have never seen this behavior before in any other game. Plugging the controller back in on the control options screen reacts as if a button was being pressed down. Control panel controller settings prove this is not the case. Why does having a controller plugged in disable the mouse?

I am using a PS2 Dualshock 2 controller, a Gamecube controller, and an XBox controller, using a 3-in-1 Magic Joy Box adapter from either Amazon or Walmart.

Hey GreenBanana, we totally don't support that adapter!

For Windows, we support Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS4  controllers.

Cheers,

If the game doesn't support those controllers, then why does the game respond to them being plugged in by disabling the mouse?

Computer weirdness.  Someone who speaks Spanish might think he understands someone speaking Portugese, but eventually the communication will break down.

Stating that we don't support a product doesn't necessarily mean that it won't work. It means that we can't guarantee that it will work.

When using unsupported hardware, you may experience all sorts of different weirdness! But if it works for you, go for it!

Cheers!
