With the game now officially out, fans of Star Wars: The Old Republic will likely experience space combat for the first time. Some, if not most, will notice that there is currently no support for a gamepad natively through the client of the game. Luckily, Darth Hater has an answer to that very issue. Using JoyToKey along with the help of a tutorial on Instructables, we were able to create a configuration file that will allow players to use their Xbox 360 gamepad in Space Combat. To assist users in the setup process, we made a quick video along with a small text guide.

If you wish to modify the default settings we used, you can change them at your leisure. We would advise visiting the Instructables tutorial for the specific key information as it can be pretty confusing without it.
