Using a Keyboard and Game Pad in HL2?

I've been playing TF2 and other HL2 games. Is there an easy way to map two inputs, or do I need to write cfgs for each and run an exec command to switch?

I play on my keyboard normally, but ever once in a while I'd like to be lazy and lean back and use a PS2-style USB controler. Any ideas?

If I've got to write cfgs, are my current binds stored anywhere?

dependign on what kind of gamepad you have (i have a logitech dual action), you probably could remap the buttons to your keys (the logitech gaming software gives you a lot of options...). i set this up a while ago for shits and giggles, but it was a pain in the ass.

Oh neat! I just checked their website and I have the same one. i didn't know that had software for that Thanks Dude!

I know keyboard is better... but when i get tired (or board) I'd rather lean back and relax

config.cfg in the <email>\team fortress 2\tf\cfg is where your commands are saved. But you can have both keyboard/mouse and controller inputs saved at the same time (so you don't need to exec anything each time) right?

I finally got it working. The main issue I had was making the right joystick "look". I finally had to make the right joystick emulate my mouse and got everything set up.

Plays like shit though
