Playing X360 pads is a bit problematic. Functions like change camera (\), vote next (space), scoreboard (tab) can't be assigned and used by gamepads. This is inconsistent with the idea of having a comfy play, because I still need a laptop on my knees to fully operate the game.

These gamepads have yet unassigned arrows (left, down, right) which could be used for the above functions. Also, I think that "start" button should open menu, but isn't working for some reason (I have original X360 controllers and "start" button works properly in other games).

I think, making the game playable without having to reach keyboard, but operating gamepads only, would highly improve convenience of the gameplay.

Some input devices needs to be configured in the key bindings menu first before being able to use them fully.
But we still have to implement ways to vote-to-continue and vote-on-next-map and show the scoreboard (as mentioned) using an input other than a keyboard. It's on our TODO list.
