Every time I start Spelunky, it defaults to looking for the Xbox controller, even though there isn't one plugged in.  Instead of being able to use the quick start, or start a new game right away from the menu, I have to go into the options every time and switch it from controller to keyboard.

Is there anything I can do to get Spelunky to remember that I want to use the keyboard instead of a controller?

Have you tried unplugging the receiver?

What's a receiver?  The controller is unplugged, if that's what you mean.

You'd think one would know what a receiver is in this day and age, or you're not computer savvy.

Oh. No I don't have a wireless controller.  It has a cord that plugs into the USB port directly, and, as I've said twice already, it's unplugged.

Is there any joystick-related programs open?

Is there any other USB devices or Bluetooth devices that tells Windows that it's a joystick?

I don't know why this should matter.  Can't Spelunky remember I've selected the keyboard option even if there is a joystick plugged in?

Because it sees a joystick, it probably thinks you want to use it for player one.

Therefore, if you want it to remember you using a keyboard, you need to make it realize there isn't any joystick plugged in.

That's why I'm saying that you should disable it.

Why would Spelunky do that when I've already told the program in the options menu that I want to use the keyboard?  That's as dumb as having to set the graphics options every time you play.

Probably because many people who want to use their keyboard for gaming probably don't keep their gamepad plugged in 20/7.
