A Part of What that can do XInput+ For you (See Orignal Sources for more Informations and Foncinality).




What you need to know when using the Xbox 360 controller on your PC

Here is a summary of what you should know when using the current (as of April 2012) Xbox 360 controller on your PC. Aside from detailed technical content, the minimum content is described.

XInput and DirectInput

When using a game controller on a PC, there are two types of game controller formats: XInput format and DirectInput format.
  • DirectInput
    • A format that has been used on PCs for a long time. It supports various types of controllers, from game pads to complex control stick controllers used in steering wheel controllers and flight sims. Therefore, it is necessary for the program side to support various types such as the number of buttons, the number of sticks, and the presence or absence of the vibration function of the controller. In addition, since the number and position of buttons and sticks are not fixed, it is necessary to set the key assignment according to the controller used by the user in order to operate with the optimum operation method. Depending on the controller and game implementation, there may be cases where the allocation is not successful.
    • DirectInput has been provided as a component for input control of Microsoft DirectX, but it has not been updated since DirectX 8 (around 2000).
  • XInput
    • A format newly created and recommended by Microsoft as an alternative to DirectInput. The format is based on the Xbox 360 controller. The layout and vibration functions of the buttons and sticks are all unified in the form of the XBOX 360 controller. Therefore, it is possible to operate with the optimum operation method (assumed by the creator) without making any special key settings. However, it does not support buttons, sticks, etc. that are higher than the Xbox 360 controller.
A major feature of the Xbox 360 controller is that it can be used in XInput format. Other popular PC game controllers only support DirectInput format.
X Box has also been selling some XInput corresponding controller other than the 360 controller.

Correspondence status on the game side

Until now, games that support game controllers generally support the DirectInput format. In recent years, the number of games that support XInput has increased, and the number of games that support only the XInput format is also increasing.
  • How can I find out what type of controller the game supports?
    • DirectInput format
      • Relatively old games
      • Button names are listed with names such as "Button1" and "Button2" in the control option settings during the game.
    • XInput format
      • Button names are described as "A", "B", "X", "Y", etc. in the control option settings in the game and the explanation in the game.
      • The in-game control options screen is represented by a picture of the Xbox 360 controller
      • Although it is mainly overseas games, you can check the list of games compatible with Xbox 360 controller (XInput) here and here .


X Box 360 controller driver

The Xbox 360 controller is recognized as an XInput controller using the Windows driver (official driver) . The XInput controller has a DirectInput compatible function and can be used in both the above DirectInput format and XInput format.
In Windows Vista or later, the driver is included in the OS, and the driver can be installed and used automatically just by connecting the XBOX360 controller.
As a specification of this driver, there are the following restrictions when using it as a DirectInput controller.
  • Left and right triggers cannot be used at the same time
  • Does not support vibration function
These problems with DirectInput may be solved by the DirectInput output function of XInput Plus .
If the DirectInput output function cannot handle it, you can solve it by installing a driver (unofficial driver) created by volunteers. However, if this driver is installed, it cannot be used as an XInput controller .
How to install an unofficial driver is not explained here. If you search, you will find many sites that explain in detail.
(Unofficial drivers are great because they allow you to make various settings such as changing key bindings at the driver level. Thanks to the authors here.)

X Box 360 controller to be used on a PC?

  • The game you want to play supports DirectInput
  • The game you want to play supports XInput
    • Used with the official driver. If you install an unofficial driver, you cannot use it with XInput, so you need to switch to the official driver.

What does XInput Plus do?

XInput Plus uses the official driver and works with games that support XInput. Roughly speaking, various functions are realized by interrupting between the input state of the official driver and the game, processing the input state and passing it to the game.
When using in DirectInput format, it corresponds by converting the output of XInput to DirectInput by the DirectInput output function .


Hope that could help you.

Thanks -- I've approved this one and made various changes to get the two versions more in line with one another.


Depending on what other staff members think, we might end up merging the two files into one, since the community site supports multiple versions for each file.

What I don't understand is, what is the difference between x360ce and xinput plus.

      XInput Plus v4.15.0.64
      See the below for a newer version.

      Configuration files for x360ce to enable support for Xbox One controllers in Assassin's Creed Director's Cut and Assassin's Creed II, including vibration.
      This is a more up-to-date version of the AC1 and 2 fix that improves compatibility with the latest build of x360ce ( and Xbox One controllers.
      To install simply download and extract the contents of the zip file into the game's installation folder.
      x360ce is not required for the fix to function but is useful should you wish to make any configuration changes. Download the 32-bit (x86) version here and extract it to the same location as the other two files.
      Known issues: Fix does not support simulatenous trigger inputs. To workaround this issue disable "hold to lock" in the game's options menu (disabled by default). This issue only affects AC1 as AC2 does not appear to support "hold to lock" on PC.

      This is an AntiMicro profile for the Spider-Man 2002 movie PC game for mapping the inputs that the game won't register in an XInput controller to the keyboard & mouse controls.
      You can import it into AntiMicro and set it to autorun with the SpiderMan.exe file in AntiMicro's settings.
      Specifically, the mappings are as defined below:
      Right Stick -> Mouse (default - camera)
      LT -> Shift (default - web action & recenter camera)
      RT -> Numpad 5 (default - web swing)
      The other inputs should be configurable in the game's gamepad settings, except the Left Stick which automatically is set to movement.

      Since game version v1.09 this fix is no longer needed, because the game received an official option to enable XInput support.
      If you are interested in using PS4 button prompts, you can find a corresponding option in the most recent version of the PRIC mod.

      This fix resolves controller issues in Prey that were introduced with patch v1.05, by forcing the game to use XInput instead of the Steam Controller API by Valve.
      Quick start guide:
      Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
      Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)

      While Prey originally offered good controller support, patch v1.05 introduced various issues. Instead of choosing either XInput or the Steam Controller API based on the user settings, the game always uses the latter. This results in problems with the movement as well as certain controller settings or the controller not working at all if the user has disabled the usage of the Steam Controller API in game's properties in Steam.
      This fix re-enables XInput support and forces the game to use it, regardless of the settings.


      Supported Versions
      This fix is designed for the latest, fully patched version of Prey and the Mooncrash DLC and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables.
      Steam v1.08

      Note that the fix currently does not work with the demo version of the game.

      The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.
      Important: When using a non-XInput controller such as the DS4, you will need a XInput emulator like DS4Windows for this fix to work
      Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
      Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)

      Although the fix forces the game to use XInput, it is necessary to disable the usage of the Steam Controller API in the game's settings.
      The safest way to do this is the following:
      In the Steam client go to the menu Steam -> Settings -> Controller -> General Controller Settings
      Make sure PS4/XBox Configuration Support is checked
      Go to Big Picture mode and find Prey in you library
      Click Mange Game -> Controller Options and uncheck Use Steam Configuration for Non-Steam Controllers
      Uncheck the setting from step 1 again, depending on whether it was checked in the first place

      Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game.

      Known Issues
      There are currently no known issues with using the fix.

      Additional Information

      Antivirus Software
      Since this fix consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner.
      If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file.

      Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors
      To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process.
      File method:
      The fix will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll.
      Folder method:
      The fix will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the fix. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.

      Contact And Support
      If you like this fix and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions.

      This is the config file needed if you want to play with just controllers. Split-screen with controllers just from second player onward does not need this config file.
      Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config\
      Replace UTInput.ini with the one in this archive.
