If you are a gamer that gets the latest news about Internet, you probably have notice the constant arguments about console and PC gaming.

Although not all the games that you may play are fully compatible with most of the features of modern day gamepad controllers, Xpadder enhances this poor support and offers complete compatibility even for those games with no gamepad support. This alternative for playing your favorite games also offers emulation for the classic PC gaming way of keyboard and mouse.

The different graphical menus that are displayed are an easy way to configure Xpadder, assigning the different functions to the connected gamepad, once it is installed and working. The interface is very simple and intuitive, designed with the objective of being working in just a couple clicks after choosing the model you are planning to use among the different gamepads available.

Great pad support

This Xpadder application includes a great database over 120 different gamepad controllers, including their drivers and adapters. The support has been increased for enabling the use of dance mats, guitars, drum kits, steering wheels, joysticks or arcade sticks among others. Using Xpadder increases the diversity for playing to the same game, setting your customized sharable profiles, spreading them on the Internet to download by other users.

The fine-tuning configuration of the gamepads allows modifying the settings for left-handed gamers. Connecting several gamepads to your system allows multiplayer gaming, supporting up to 16 different pads at the same time. The software additionally simulates mouse movements and keypresses as an alternative for the classic way of controlling your system.

However, gaming purposes are not the only field in which this software acts. Connecting your gamepad to your system enables the possibility of controlling your video/music software, setting customizable hotkeys for the different actions you need. Enjoy the control of your system and your games in a complete different way with different free profiles and possibilities.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

For what are you going to use the program?
  • Getting rid of deadzone in my steering wheel. I am hoping that this program will fix it. 52 characters left? Really... Let me just download!

  • I'm going to use this as a game utility because some games are better on a controller than a keyboard and I hate your minimum length limit for this.

  • I am going to use xpadder for windows eight point one to play one of my favourite games from Hinterlnad Studio called The Long Dark and this will be awesome

What do you like most about this program?
  • It gives me power to play complex computer games with the simplistic and familiar feel to my hand via a controller. It simply brings joy to my face.
