Non 360 controller for Just Cause 2

Personally I find it quite annoying that we're being forced to use 360 controllers in many of these "games for windows" releases. Purchasing a receiver so I can use the 360 controller on my PC when I've already purchased a decent normal gamepad doesn't seem practical. I could just use the keyboard and mouse of course but on some games I prefer using a controller. Thankfully there is a piece of software which allows me to do just that. It's a 360 controller emulator called x360ce. I assume it works by translating the directx input from your typical controller into whatever the game is expecting from the 360 receivers input. x360ce works for other "games for windows" games by renaming the included xinput1_3.dll file to one of the 4 possible variations the current games look for. The file names are listed below.

1: xinput1_3.dll

2: xinput1_2.dll

3: xinput1_1.dll

4: xinput9_1_0.dll

You may also have to edit the file x360ce.ini to remap your controllers buttons or analog sticks to better suit your preferences or correct misconfiguration. My PS2/PC Alienware controllers left analog stick was inverted.

For Just Cause 2 download the x360ce file available in the right hand column extract the files and copy xinput1_3.dll and x360ce.ini to the games installation folder. Prior to copying the files you can test the input using XInputTest.exe

  2. Just use Joy2key. It is a small utility that let's you assign keyboard keys, including mouse buttons and mouse movement to your USB controller buttons. But to get the best game experience out of your PC, use the mouse and keyboard. Beats the controller any day.

  3. Just cause 2 is a full of action game, here is the link to download it

  4. Download in game in my blog singel link full version & Full speed

  5. PS4 Modded Controllers is perfect for those who love their old 360 controllers, or had a real expensive modded 360 controller and now don't have to worry about buying another, or want to use a PS4 Dual shock 4 controller or want that extra edge by playing with a keyboard and mouse. Naturally you have full access to all of the mod packs too so you can now play with a fully modded controller on your Xbox One Modded Controllers - including our latest addition to the mudpack range, CALL OF DUTY GHOSTS V1.0 - again supplied free of charge and will be out very soon (Until it is released you can use the Call of Duty Series v1.7 Game Pack to work with COD Ghosts on the Xbox One)
