Hey guys, I been searching online all day for a way to get the xbox 360 controller to work on Vice City. I just got it today the controller. I noticed there are a lot of problems with the right stick. I see everything is okay. Is there a patch of some kind? I have read online and was told to download a program 1.1 patch but I don't have the exe file cause it's from steam. I got all the GTA's last year for like 9 bucks off of steam. Be nice to play it and move the view around in the game.

Anyone know how to go about it? I seen 2 types of things for it xpadd and joy2key but no idea both you got to pay and I heard that the problem is still on both. I can play the game and all just sucks about the view.

Should I just buy a PS3 controller or what?

Also would it work with SA?

Thanks in Advance!

You'd probably be better off investing in a Logitech controller like the Rumblepad 2 or one of the F series. If you are determined to use the 360 controller you will need to use an unofficial driver/wrapper to get the 360 controller to act as a DirectInput device. Try one of these:





You will probably need to remap the right stick to Ry+- and Rz+- if my memory serves, and definitely map the two triggers to act as buttons instead of axises.

If all that sounds like too much trouble... Logitech controller. You probably want one of the older ones with a square analog stick well (Rumblepad) because without that extra range in the corners looking around in first-person will be veeerry sluggish on the diagonals. This is the case with any DirectInput controller I've tested that has circular analog stick wells, as well as the (original) Xbox controller with XBCD; I can practically guarantee the 360 controller would have the same problem. I have not tested (bought) any of the Logitech F series so I don't know if they implemented some kind of compensation for that in DirectInput mode.

A PS3 controller should work in theory (again, haven't tested one personally) but I expect it would suffer the same problem with sluggishness on the diagonals.

Xpadder freeware version. Works perfectly with my Xbox controller. You might have something else wrong but just thought I'd show you that you don't have to pay for Xpadder.
