why on earth would you even want to do this. This is fps, mouse/kb rules.

Console kids will never learn. Even after being destroyed by mouse and keyboard players for the millionth time. :lol:

and why you need to be all personal all of a sudden? I have a very good PC, an xbox360, and a PS3. Why you feel the urge to call unknown people kids?

I'm 26 years old with a full time job.

And most of all a

Gamer

The so called "normal" ppl whos only enjoyment in life is to go into a pub with "friends" and drink alcohol till one of you gets sick, already keep calling us Gamers: Nerds/NoLifers/Antisocial/Etc...

It saddens me that all i see is that our "little" group called Gamers broke into 3 parts (xbox fan/ps fan/pc fan). Why and how did this happen? Are you jealous that you can't afford all of it? Maybe you have some mentality issues who can't accept that little fact that by a chance your opinion is not superior to others?

At the end of the day we are all the same... Gamers

PS.: calling others kids is just so yesterdays... try to come up with something unique. you're just being unoriginal... an unoriginal guy whos not smart enough to have his own thoughts.

Some people are just born absolute arseholes, Unfortunatly you are one of them. Ive said this many times, If you dont use a controller or never intend to, Then piss off and play the game like you enjoy, leave others to do the same. Moron !

I'd like to see things from your point of view, but I can't seem to get my head that far up my ass.

If only you posted this before I tried the in-game settings for a controller. I've gotten used to PC gaming now and probably won't go back to using a controller on it. The only time that I feel the need to use a controller is driving a car. Nice guide either way.

I enjoy using the controller for a few games.

I played WoW on a Xbox controller, I might try this.

It just comes down to what feel the most conformable. For me, sitting on the couch playing on my T.V with my wireless Xbox controller and headset is relaxing. My Big o' Lazy boy and controller.

Yes I now I am more accurate, and it is less of a hassle sometimes using a K&M, but in the end, you play for enjoyment, so I do what I feel will give me the most enjoyment.

I love how offended "PC Gamers" get when controllers are mentioned. It's almost as if they are threatened by them?? :D

I definitely wouldn't play Day Z with an Xbox Controller, but could care less if others decide to. The fact is, there are tons of people out there who are more comfortable with a controller than they are k/m. Not a big deal what so ever.

What is a big deal however, is that the OP clearly took a lot of time to put this little guide together, and looks to have done a fantastic job. It's people like you who make game communities better! So bravo and enjoy the beans! :):)

I've been wanting to do this for so long I've got used to keyboard and mouse now. Not sure I'd want to change back but thanks for posting. It's such a MASSIVE jump from controller to keyboard I'm sure it will be useful to someone. :)

Hey Mucwa , I also had problems getting xpadder to recognise Monte87`s config , so i tried yours and it works fine on my desktop but ingame it just wont recognise it , i have tried changeing the controller options to " custom controller " and back to " controller with scheme " . but no luck . the only scheme that works is the basic 360 controller . any help would be greatly appreciated .

well, i get why...

most triple a shooter titles of the last years have been designed around gamepads. that in itself isn't much of a big deal. but the fact that those games get (badly) ported onto pc and represent the majority of succesful titles makes ppl react rather "allergically" when someone "threatens" their pc games which such a thing...

i grew up with doom, quake and ut and i'm sure games like those don't get made anymore, because they wouldn't be the huge successes that modern console ports are in comparison (they would be huge successes compared to quake etc, but that doen't seem to count when the industry only cares about shareholder value)...

todays shooters have become so slow and ppl blame it on gamepads...kinda...

BUT:

i can perfectly understand that somneone wants to use a pad due to disability or other circumstances which the op mentioned...so...whatever...

just my 2 cents...

Thing is, players who use controllers for PC games like these are pretty much all casual players or just plain noobs. So it's their own choice, who cares. More easy pvp kills for us right?

(Also I lolled at the guy on page one who said he played WoW with a controller, definitely don't want to be with him in a group, lol)

      Well folks I'm trying my best to use my ps4 controller with dayzsa but having no luck. Any ideas? Does battleye conflict with it?
    • DayZ Social Media and You: A Guide
      By ☣BioHaze☣
      This is a twitlonger taken from DayZdev twitter from a couple days ago.
      http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sognm0
       
      This is a basic rundown of our interaction with you, our internal process for communication and some other odds and ends in no particular order.

      "When it's ready."

      The above is our boilerplate response to, "Where is .60," questions. It's gonna remain the same until such point as we say otherwise, which we will.

      Fact is, our highly skilled, exceptionally dedicated development team are working through the very time-consuming task of bringing the very best, most functional version of .60 to you. Outside of providing details in our bi-weekly status report on exactly why it's not live yet and sharing other vital details, they simply don't have time to stop their work to drill down into the minutiae of their daily tasks to keep everyone abreast of everything, all the time, at every moment.

      On that...

      We are working on more avenues to communicate DayZ details to you.

      And by we, I mean myself and Brian. Last year was a bit of a transitional period in a lot of ways, and communication slowed. You'll (hopefully) be quite happy to know that we endeavor to provide even more video content on a regular basis where the above mentioned devs, QA folk and more will take time out of those busy schedules to put together informational content for you to consume.

      In this, you'll get to know our team better, understand more clearly the process of our development and what it entails, and get a clearer picture of everything and everyone that is bringing DayZ to you. All of this content will be shared here on this account, as is all official DayZ content and news.

      Which brings us to our next point...

      No other outlet, forum or person/s are sources of current or new information regarding DayZ but the DayZ Development Twitter account.

      None. That means, when you start writing, "I read somewhere that *insert information for unreleased information regarding dates/items/features* was coming on *insert time*," you can save yourself the keystrokes. Unless we said it here, or in a press release sent to an actual reputable outlet, it's guaranteed not to be a thing.

      Everyone that works at BI with a hand in DayZ still defers new info to this account, even Brian. If we have an official announcement, you're going to find it here and on DayZ.com first, particularly if it's big news.

      This circles back to, "When it's ready." Asking each week if that's the week .60 will drop, is always going to be met with the same answer, because the day we're quite certain (see: 100%) that it's going live, we'll have already posted it across every platform we use. This goes for any other prospective major feature/timeline news. There will literally never be a time someone writes, "So is it coming before next Friday?" that we'll respond with, "Oh! Fffff, totally forgot to share this info! Yes, yes it is. Pardon the oversight."

      We want to get the newest content out to you as much as you want it. Trust us, our team gets very excited every time we reach an internal milestone, kill a miserable bug, up FPS in cities even more, etc. But until something is exactly (or as near that as possible) where we want it to be for public consumption, it stays put, and we the fan-facing internet communication-types, aren't going to be share anything new outside of the Status Reports. Which, by the way, are full of clear, concise, easy to delve into information.

      Speaking of our excited development team and information...

      Nobody is communicating with you in code.

      Our developers have Twitter accounts, and working at BI is a part of their life. Twitter is a fantastic place to talk about things in that life! Often, said team will mention their excitement at something that has happened in the dev process as it relates to their particular expertise. Sometimes, they just post a rather ambiguous thing because that happens on social media. Sometimes, they'll even answer basic questions about DayZ. Not often, but it happens.

      That said, there are no secret messages or meanings behind comments made by anyone associated with DayZ or BI.

      I can't tell you how many times I've seen a completely harmless Tweet get dissected *COUGHredditCOUGH* by fans eager for new info. I even saw a discussion about a winky-face emoticon at the end of a response, and whether or not that winky-face meant the content of this response was actually the opposite of what was written.

      This is not a thing. This will never, ever be a thing.

      As it relates to DayZ, anything we share we share directly, without need for a deciphering key, or any version of cryptanalysis. I hate the term, but handle your "hype" responsibly. If a BI employee talks about being excited about something on their particular social media platform, that doesn't mean we're ten minutes away from the latest build, nor does it mean DayZ is getting submarines. It very likely means they have pushed the game that much further toward a particular goal, even if something as simple as fixing an obnoxious bug. Being that any major news will be coming from @dayzdevteam alone, simply take these Tweets as a small window into the lives of people working hard on a game they are deeply invested in.

      Also, be nice to them. And speaking of being kind denizens of the internet...

      Cursing at/harassing us is a fantastic way to get a vacation from our Twitter account!

      We get it. Waiting for something you want can get frustrating. Nonspecific information isn't always a lot of fun. Working on early access games of this magnitude is time-consuming, and the process can be painstaking when taking steps forward (though we very much are moving forward). That said, dropping f-bombs isn't cool, and while we're happy to discuss frustrations, we're under no obligation to take abuse.

      We're happy to talk to you folks about the things we *can* talk about, and even happier to go out of our way to provide more in-depth discussion when we're spoken to like humans. Essentially, pleasant interaction goes a long way in opening channels of communication. The opposite closes them, though generally temporarily.

      tl;dr - .60 is coming when it's coming, you'll know when it's here because we'll have said so, new social content regarding DayZ is being worked on and it's gonna be cool, this account is the official account for all DayZ news (accept no substitutes), there are no secret codes buried in innocuous posts from anyone working on DayZ, and don't be rude, we'll be more willing to chat you up if you aren't.
