Xbox 360 controller emulator for practically any generic USB gamepads (Windows)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I know some of you would prefer to use their very own gamepads as opossed to microsoft's. Others just like cheap pads and don't see why they should buy msofts at that price.. good news!
Here is a quick and easy solution to you problem biggrin.gif.
The reason I have included driver pack 14 64bit is so that more current motherboards for PCs can recognize your gamepads correctly (Win 8 included).

  1. You will need to update your USB drivers with the above driver pack from kickasstorrent which also contains 64bit drivers hence it's size (DVD9) for them to work.
  2. As for xbox360cemu.v.3.0.7z extract its entire contents into the game directory where the game's exe is located.
  3. If the game supports Xbox 360 controllers then it should work with your generic gamepads otherwise your pc isn't detecting the pads (USB driver update issue)
  4. Configure your controls by first plugging in the gamepads then launching XInputTest.exe to see what movement your inputs registers.
  5. To configure the right movements open xbox360cemu.ini, go to [PAD1] taking it that it is your first connected pad and exchange the values shown below if they are currently incorrectly configured

Code:
Left Analog X=1                      
Left Analog Y=-2                
Right Analog X=3                
Right Analog Y=-6

and

A=3                             
B=2                             
X=4                             
Y=1                             
Left Shoulder=5                 
Right Shoulder=6                
Back=9                          
Start=10                        
Left Thumb=11                   
Right Thumb=12                  
Left Trigger=7                  
Right Trigger=8

until they all configure correctly since your pads may designate the names of the buttons differently.
Just keep trying different values until they correctly register with XInputTest.exe test display.
Once done fire up your game and enjoy!

This is how I got some $4 generic usb gamepads lying around to work with my p8z77-v board biggrin.giftongue.gif
Any.. practically any generic pads should work with this.
Hope this has helped you.. thumb.gif

Yo dude, the links aren't working anymore, I think Ive found the correct usb driver pack, but cant find the xbox360cemu.v.3.0.7z file.

im trying to play really big sky with my generic USB controller but it wont recognise it and the standard emulators arent working!

Any help would be much appreciated!

-Ive installed DriverPack Solution 13, updated the drivers (avg detected a load of trojans while extracting btw)
-Extracted the cemu.v.3 file contents into the folder with the game exe (replacing the original .dll file)
-Run the test app and its all responding and looking fine...

but the game still wont recognise the controller!

any advice on something I may be doing wrong?

Get kaspersky internet security 2014, Avg has too many false positives

Try this open XInputTest.exe with your pad plugged in, now move the analogue sticks with your thumbs, do you see movement on your XInputTest.exe window?

Download links have been updated smile.gif

Ok I downloaded the new links, updated all the drivers again, and extracted the newer cemu files into the game folder.

I open the XInput test and it all responds and works as it should.

The game still doesn't recognise the controller :/


It's worth noting this controller does work in other games!

That's true unfortunately, does your game have support for the xbox 360 controller? If it can't use the normal Xbox 360 controller then it won't work.

It definitely works with a 360 controller - I have one and have used it many times with this game. I'm wanting to set this up as an additional player...

Where are you copying your extracted files?
post #9 of 16
From the .cemu rar? I extracted them into the same folder as the game application. All files copy over, and one file replaces an original - the .dll file.
folder pathway:

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\RBS\

The game is called Really Big Sky, people on the steam forums have reported it supports generic USB controllers...

Im running windows 8 64bit.

Exactly as I suspected, nothing is supposed to be replaced or over-written. Your are supposed to extract to where the main game.exe file is
