How do I use a Logitech USB controller for Steam games?

#1KhalpzPosted 9/1/2013 7:40:38 PM
I bought a lot of games that would be best with a controller. The problem they seem to require the 360 controller.

What can I do to make my Logitech Dual Action USB controller work for these games?

Picture of the controller I want to use:

Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks.

If it's like mine, it has a switch on the back that changes it from direct input (generic usb) or xbox mode. If it's an older one you'll just have to program all the controls yourself.

I can't get it to work.

Guacamelee's controller configuration screen is based around the 360 controller and doesn't react to anything from my USB controller. I have the controller on and everything.

in Duck Tales Remastered, it also doesn't isn't recognized on the controller configuration screen

You'll might need to use a program like JoyToKey or Xpadder.

Might be a little confusing at first, but there are tutorials on youtube that should clear things up for you.

Right now only Logitech's F310, F510, and F710 are natively supported in Windows. For old Logitech controllers you need to use third party programs.

I have already read about xpadder and even downloaded a version but didn't know how to get it to work.

Sorry but I really don't know much about this. I only use my controller for emulators of old consoles.

Topics like these make me realize how great 360 controllers are. Even my old Commander Keen game from 1990 correctly recognizes it in windows from DOSbox without any fuss.

This is probably a stupid question TC, but did you go to Logitech's website and find any appropriate drivers that the controller might need? With the drivers installed everything should work fine.

Not trying to be snarky, but I simply Googled. "Logitech Dual Action USB drivers" and this helpful page popped up:

Just get a PS3 controller and download ds3tool.
