# 1 XBox 360 and keybinds
09-04-2012, 08:37 AM
A couple of things...

I have been trying to setup up key binds for a USB Xbox 360 controller.

I have used the instructions in the Xbox sticky, the key binds for dummies in the Academy forum, and the key bind instructions from STOWiki.

I have gotten partial success.

Ground binds aren't bad, except moving backwards is sporadic. I read that it was a problem, and I've gotten it to work, as long as I'm not going backwards at full speed.

Any news if there is a fix for this?

Also, I bound the Lstick_left and _right to turn left and right, but I seem to also move left and right. I have tried unbinding all before loading the bind file and then load my bind file, but it persists. anyone have any thoughts?

In space, I got it initially setup fine, but then I started getting a message in the chat window that the invertibleup command was not valid. I used the mappings from with the Options window for space binding to see the actual command.

So I played with it for a little bit, and then found that the ship does not pitch up. when I checked the binds, and says that pitch up was bound still to the W key.

So I want to know, to all those out there using Xbox controllers, how much luck have you had?

Also would like to know who uses what, do you use a bind file, xPadder, or something else to get your controllers to work?

If anyone did getting this working with a bind file, would you mind posting?
The links in the OP for the 360 controller thread seem to have been removed after the merging of the forums.
My wrists and fingers would be greatly appreciative

Anybody got any info on these?

I could really use the help, as I'm mostly playing on a laptop during the week, and use a 360 controller would be a HUGE improvement to my playing.

I too have had nothing but trouble with trying to make the Xbox controller work the way I want it to. I mean there is a key binding interface in the options, but I have not had any success at all getting that to work. If I can pick what buttons on my Xbox 360 controller does, I would enjoy the game much more. Right now I fumble in space combat and some in ground combat. I wanted to set my left bumper to aim, right bumper to fire option 1 and right trigger to fire option 2 with the weapons. Then use Right Analog button to do the command tray 3. I mean if I can pick the way I want my controller set up. I can play the game much easier. Right now there are times I get.... Rather frustrated since I tend to fumble with the key pad trying to do simple actions I should be able to do on the game pad.

# 4 S7 Xbox Controller keybinds

For those wanting to try an Xbox 360 controller setup, I put a new forum post up detailing the system I've been working on for a couple of years. It includes links to the keybind files as well as PDF guides for the controllers and tray setup.

The new thread is at Xbox 360 Controller Keybinds: Updated for S7
