Just bought a new controller for the pc...

#1Dragon_StrikerPosted 8/6/2012 9:45:10 PM
So I just bought a controller for my PC because I just couldn't get used to the controls. I have it all set up but there is one problem. It is set to use the Dpad and not the left stick to move my character. Everything else is perfect, just this one problem. Is there anyway to change this? I looked through the controls list but didn't see a movement option.

If you have a console like ps3 or xbox360 you could use that as a controller you didn't have to buy a PC one.

I use the wired Xbox controller, but you can use something called Xpadder. Look up on google Xpadder free version, because im sure the current version you have to pay for :/

I tried using my ps3 controller but it didn't work. I had it plugged in using the cord it came with. I'll try using it again tomorrow morning before I start work. If you wouldn't mind, could you explain how I should set it up?

What kind of controller did you get (that's kind of important information)?

If you have a Logitech controller, there might be a button on it marked "Mode" or "Analog." This button is used to alternate the left analog stick with the D-pad. Other manufacturers might use a similar button.

Also, which controller emulator are you using (that's kind of important, too)?

There might be a setting in the controller emulator that lets you swap the D-pad for the analog stick.

I just bought the Razer Nostromo from Best Buy..its a great controller, but I think the deal breaker for Skyrim would be that the built in stick is digital..no pressure sensitive sneak etc..is there something similiar with an analog stick?

Which Logitech controller are you using, specifically? Someone who has the same controller might be able to give you a precise answer. If you don't know what emulator you are using, that suggests that you may not be using one at all. Skyrim is programmed to work with an XBox 360 controller; any other controller needs to be emulated. The most popular emulators are x360ce and MotionJoy.

A controller using an analog stick is pressure sensitive as you would expect. Your digital controller stick is essentially the same as using keyboard controls, which is very limited.

Ok, so I don't know what I did but when I turned it on this morning the left stick controlled the character. But there is one thing I'm not so sure about. It feels a little off when I'm turning with or without a bow. I changed the look sensitivity but it still feels off. I don't know if it means anything but I have my computer connected to the projector. Think that would be causing it or something else?

Google "Motioninjoy". That's the program/driver that let's the PS3 controller work in windows.
