I decided to try Steam because it has a nice controller mapping feature to Big Picture Mode.
So what I did:
- Mapped the keys to PS4 controller for Diablo II config
Enabled Steam Overlay (in both the global and game settings, this has to be enabled for the controller to work at all)
Open Big Picture Mode
Run Diablo II
Game works perfectly using the PS4 controller until I get a HUD notification
Press Shift + Tab to access community
This happens about 30 seconds into the gameplay... my controller suddenly stops responding; I then have to use my mouse to quit the game and try again.
If somehow I could disable that notification, I think this would work perfectly.
Has anyone had a similar issue or maybe some insight?
It is so frustrating because it works, but the notification disables it.
A part of me thinks being on a Mac could be an issue, but for those of you that don't know, Blizzard released a Mac version of Diablo 2 and it essentially works the same as the
.exe on Windows.
You can even pass command line arguments; I've tried to run a couple of them (through Steam)
Diablo II -glide and
Diablo II -w and it doesn't fix this issue.
