Make Keyboard/mouse appear as controller to PC (xbox/ps3 etc.)

Post by stuxxy » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:53 pm

Hello.

May just be a simple yes or no answer. or it may not be....

I've been attempting to set this up so i can make my keyboard and mouse look like a controller to the PC.

So is Gimx going to work for what i would like to achieve?

Thanks! :^)

Hello stuxxy,

The main target of Gimx is on consoles. So if you want to emulate gamepad from keyboard and mouse, I think you should looking for vJoy, UCR and x360ce software combination :)

I've looked into it and tried that method already, thankyou for the suggestion though. the game in question just switches from keyboard to controller every 2 seconds. i thought since the xim supports what i want to achieve Gimx might aswell.

is there a reasosn the PC wouldn't pick it up as xbox one controller? because i already have a second PC and other hardware needed to accomplish it.

This is not a supported use case, controller emulations are only tested with consoles.
There is are at least two controller emulation that should work on computer: EMUJOYSTICKPS3 and EMUG27PC.
Since you want to emulate a controller, try the EMUJOYSTICKPS3 firmware.
