So I also have Fable but its not controller supported so I was searching Google and BAM! out comes a YouTube video it says, "Play games using Controller instead of a keyboard: Flash, Java, PC, NES, etc." So I download it setup the thing and now Fable on my computer is cool. After about 3 minutes of playing my jaw drops. EUO......It uses the keyboard. So I try it out and it works. Now let me give you the YoutTube link for all of you who have controllers and are not mages can use it. (Believe me with a mage there is not enough buttons for me there weren't at least.)

Controller Modifiers...

Come on now, I'm a mage... I hardly need anything other than VOG, XC and maybe Mani... Other spells can be binded to a modifier.


For example, set the Left Bumper as your modifier button, this will give you a bunch of unique options.




NOT A FUCKING PROBLEM K?

With a proper user interface, its not a problem.

Ever play Torchlight for the Xbox?

Quite similar to Diablo, they worked it out quite surprisingly well.

Items bound to things? Hmm.... I never use items bound to anything other than pots, personally.. Which is also solved with modifiers.
Modifiers are a thing that isn't commonly used much anymore, it may sound foreign to people.

A port would be required to have somethings changed for sure, but not much.

Not a problem.

EUO has alot more things that are used by a keyboard than Torchlight.

Big Problem.

Hmmm... Can't change your mind eh?

Maybe I should type up a possible controller layout... maybe. Would have to be later though, I'm sleepy.
It will not be a problem.

Well if you figure out a good layout for mages that can craft, drink potions, cast spells, use items etc using just an Xbox 360 controller, I will agree that it isn't a problem. Until then, it is. :)
