Version 1.03, gamepad support!

Thanks very much to the backers who I suddenly enlisted to be emergency gamepad testers! Improved pad support for Tiny Barbarian DX is here, and seems to be working with everything thrown at it so far. What a relief! Configuring your buttons is still highly recommended, depending on your pad it may not be set up conveniently by default.

      Is anyone having slowdown issues?

      Mine was working fine till today, but now everytime I run it I get massive slowdown as soon as I've been playing for a couple of minutes :/

      It's quite frustrating, as I had almost finished the first chapter :/

      Nicely done Michael. Hard as nails, and very enjoyable! I am already glad I kick-started this one.

      Axel--no problem, I assumed some people wouldn't to it right away so I "cast a wide net" among people who said they'd had trouble to make sure things were probably working right. Thanks for letting me know!

      Brian--great work! An hour is pretty fast for a first clear time, from what I've observed. :)

      Thanks everybody!

      xbox 360 controller works great! I just beat it 54 deaths and something like 1 hour to complete.
      Great game, hard as hell some times but that good kind of difficulty where you feel like a boss when you overcome the obstacle. Kick ass!

      Sorry I wasn't able to test it earlier, but I can confirm now that the controller support is working, and much nicer than Joy2Key was.

      Great job on the update! Gamepad goodness abounds!
