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.:dejection:

But there's a way to get them working :D (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:Banane01:


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).:Banane37: 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.;):cool:

Look up joy2key its what i use on my legacy type controller. Look it up on a search on internet. It was freeware small app to set any mouse keyboard combo to any function on a controller even all the joysticks on it not just the directionals. Set control in game to mouse keyboard and map out all the buttons in the app and have it started before opening game. Use windows hardware section in control panel to select you controller and check what buttons in its properties correspond with which buttons on the controller. If you get to properties you can hit a button on controller and it highlights what button number it corresponds to then adjust that one in Joy2key to what you want in game. Hope that helps if you cant find it let me know ill upload it.

Did you try both procedures?

Have you installed the latest version of "Logitech Gaming Software"?

Yes, that will work for part 1 as well since that one is as messed up as the second one.

Hummmm .... not working.

I tired both methods and nothing is working.

I got a thrustmaster dual trigger 3 in 1 (no rumble Force). Even after using the 2 methods and using my gamepad profil from x360ce.exe (the latest version) it's not working. I'm also trying with differents gamepad profils ... still nothing ...

I got nothing else connected to my pc (a.k.a avoiding the famous USB conflict with another gamepad) ... nada ...

There is no drivers for my dual trigger (no cd in the original box and none at Thrustmaster | Gaming Headset Steering Wheel PS3 PS4 Xbox One Xbox 360 PC & Controllers) BUT I installed the drivers originaly for the rumble force version, the thrustmaster control panel dectects perfectly my gamepad ... nada (still using x360ce).

Any ideas ?

EDIT : on my computer the combo [x360ce + my gamepad] is perfectly working on recent games like "Castlevania: lords of shadow 1/mirror of fate/2" ... just saying ...

EDIT 2 : when I say NOTHING I don't mean the gamepad is not working at all, the button are all mesed up, can't look up/down etc ...

OK ... that's better!

I tired the same thing with an older version of x360ce (2.0.2.90) and finaly it's working perfectly.

Might be one solution to try the second method with an older version and NOT ALLWAYS the latest.

      I've had this issue a while ago on my Alienware m17x R4 with 7970m and windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I've been trying to fix this since, but I've found a solution :DIt's probably more simple then you thought it would be :PBasically, what you do is you switch to iGPU Intel HD4000 first (FN+F7),then you have to install this audio driver (A01, 4/30/12, Creative Labs CT9570, Audio_Creative_W74_5NJ7K_A01-Setup_ZPE.exe), 6.0.100.2033 driver from their website,Switch back into dGPU again,there you go :DHope this helps

      Hi everybody!
      There is a software/driver, that let You use a PlayStation gamepads in PC gaming.
      It's called MotionJoy, I installed it, and works fine with DualShock3 on USB, but I had issue with Bluetooth connection. It's: "Wait fof Bluetooth Adabter to be connected".
      This is not read Lenovo Y580 Bluetooth... Is there any smart and clever person, that could edit this software or a few files, so it could be work fine?
