When looking at the game Scourge: Outbreak I noticed that it features both "Partial Controller Support" and "Full controller support".

Both Controller

At first I thought maybe if a game has full support, it must also have partial. Goat Simulator, however, only has full support. Looking through to see if I could find another game with both, I found Mercenary Kings also features Partial and Full support.

  • @Assylum Any way to figure out which it actually is?

  • Not without asking on the forums. Apr 2, 2014 at 18:56
  • it could possibly depend on what part of the game you are playing.

    @Dupree3 See this question. If a controller does not work for part of the game, that seems to indicate a "Partial Controller Support" entry.

It would appear that having both is an error in the entry at some point. According to the developer of Scourge:

"The game is fully suported, even the text input in Big Picture mode" [...] "Seams like an error." source

After looking through many of the Full controller support and Partial controller support games, it seems like this is a rare case. It is likely that any game that lists both did so by accident.


It can't, they are mutually exclusive. Whoever was entering the information made a mistake. You can ask on the game's forums whether it has full support.

  • I always thought it meant you could bind all the controls to the controller but controlls could also be bound to the keyboard. Apr 2, 2014 at 20:50

    @Nicholas_Moughler full controller support means you don't need a keyboard or mouse to play the game at all, it doesn't mean you can't use k+m to play it.

  • Actually, I thought one was for big picture mode while the other was not.
