I haven't found the game's manual, but apparently Marble Blast is keyboard-only and has no controller support. Camera can be accurately controller with mouse, the marble to my knowledge can't. However, has some modded analogue support into the game (for a controller with analogue sticks)?

At the time of posting I wasn't aware that the Gold levels are available in PlatinumQuest, so I don't know if the request is applicable anymore.

For the record, MBPU also has controller support, though it's a fixed configuration that only works with XInput (i.e. Xbox) controllers.

I was going to mention that, but thought I'd give someone else the honors. From what I've seen, there's also icons for PlayStation 4 controls as well, hinting DualShock 4 support. Last time I checked, Nintendo Switch controllers can be connected to PCs outside the box. Can Switch controller support be added in a future update?

MBPU doesn't have PS4 controller support. PQ does. PS4 controller support isn't planned for MBPU (mostly because you could just edit the config scripts yourself), but it is planned for Quaternion at some point. As for the Switch controllers, based on HiGuy's experience, I'm inclined to never touch them with a ten-foot pole.

Yeah, sorry, I misread MBPU as PQ.
There does exist software that allows a DualShock 4 to pass off as an Xbox 360 controller, called DS4Windows. I have yet to try it on MBPU, and I'll keep you informed on whether it works.

Update: DS4Windows worked with MBPU. But somehow the DualShock 4 isn't being recognized by itself on my copy of PQ, and when I use DS4Windows, navigating the menu is a hassle because the controls become erratic and the button mapping doesn't seem to match (pressing the Square button registers an A, for instance).
