How To: Make ANY Analog Controller to an Xbox 360 Controller

So you may or may not know this, but a number of PC games require that you own an Xbox 360 controller if you want to play them using a gamepad. Guess what? They cost a bomb! Yeah, thank you Micro$oft. If you do however own a regular analog gamepad (that’s the one with the two sticks that go all around like an owl’s head, yeah, that one), then you could “convert” it into an Xbox 360 controller. Technically, you just fool the game into thinking it’s an Xbox 360 controller. I could write another couple of paragraphs here on how to convert your analog gamepad into an Xbox 360 controller, but I’ll make it simpler on myself and embed this little video here. Yesterday, I wrote about the Enter E-GPV as a dirt cheap alternative to the Xbox 360 controller but did not explain how. If you own one, well, don’t bother watching that video. Download the zip file mentioned at the end, uncompress it and put it in the game’s directory. There’s an app called X-Padder that lets you customize what each key of your gamepad does when pressed. This can be useful for older games, games which do not have Xbox 360 controller support built-in, or if you simply choose not to emulate an Xbox 360 controller and choose to instead customize every key of your gamepad. Keep in mind, this will not let you play games that require ONLY an Xbox 360 controller. You can find the download link below. Resources:
