There was a post on the forums (http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12373
) discussing alternative control schemes for Torchlight / ARPG's. Got me thinking about how Torchlight would handle using a PC gamepad
Decided to find out for myself and wrote this little utility last night!
It's a bit clunky at the moment, but the functionality is there - Just needs some tweaking! I'm building a keymapper so that you can customise the gamepad buttons to your own preference, as well as setting little extras such as cursor speed and maybe
some basic macro functions.
This was coded in Autoit and created and tested in Win Vista OS with my crappy, cheap PC gamepad. Not sure how it'll handle in other OS's, and with other gamepads - not had anyone to beta test yet, so hopefully some of you guys will be my guniea pigs
How to use? Simply download and open "TGP.zip", then open it up and run "TGP.exe". The autility will sit on your taskbar minding its own business - then Open up Torchlight and (hopefully) start harvesting phat loot with your D-Pad!

Please note, Autoit is notorious for false positives when it comes to AntiVirus software. But don't panic, this file is clean!
If you're feeling brave, please download, try it out and let me know how it goes, cheers Download Here: http://www.box.net/shared/avq0spmdza
