    Darksiders 2 / Darksiders Gamepad Fix

    Darksiders 2 / Darksiders Gamepad Fix

    Darksiders and its successor Darksiders 2 are both programmed to use the Xbox360 Gamepad, other gamepads aren't recognized or aren't fully functional.
    But there's a way to get them working (I think this would also work with other games that are affected by this issue. I only own Darksiders/Darksiders2, where this occurs, so I can't confirm it.)

    Step1:
    Download gamepad.zip
    gamepad.zip
    Unpack the content to your gameinstall directory, e.g. D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders 2

    Step2:
    Now make sure your gamepad is connected. Open Device Manager and open Human Interface Devices subdirectory.
    Rightclick on your gamepad that is listed there and choose properties.
    Under Details, click the bar and choose Hardware Ids, now you see VID and PID of your device.

    Step3:
    Open x360ce.ini in your gameinstall directory using Notepad++ or any other programm that works.
    A few lines down you find VID and PID numbers, correct them if needed with the numbers from step2 and save changes.

    Now you're ready to play, have fun


    Here's the procedure, if you want to go with the newest version of Xbox360 Controller Emulator:
    Step1:
    Download x360ce.exe at the official site and put it into your gameinstall directory, e.g. D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders 2

    Step2:
    Run x360ce.exe and let it create all necessary files

    Step3:
    Configure your controller with your own specific configuration. Close the configuration application after you're done.

    hmm...If you're lucky, the controller runs without the emulator (try and error). Otherwise you have to proceed according to the above scheme.

    I assume you have used the official Xbox360 Controller Emulator.
    I've updated the main post, now it should be clear how to proceed.

    Hi, I have the same problem and try to solve it. My controller is ACME GA-03 (cheap model, but after all it schould be working). Is there any other way of solving this issue with DS2? Thank You!
