i want to try using this app for Splinter Cell.

now i know some people will whine over it, but games like these i prefer pad,
ATM i am downloading xpadder (well extracting now) is it possible to set the speed of Sam's movement? as with the original game for PC you need to use your mouse wheel to change speed.

in general, is this a good program for those games with minimal controller support?

There's a freeware version and all you have to do is set it to windows XP compatibility mode... or at least that's all I had to do...

Xpadder works for me in win8.1 but I do have the paid version. As for your question, I'm not sure how many steps there are with the mouse wheel by default. If it were a simple walk/run mechanic, it would be easy to have thresholds on the analog sticks that would allow for a somewhat intuitive speed mechanic. You could likely do it with mouse wheel inputs but they aren't temporary like most key presses so you might be better off just assigning a couple dpad directions to the speed modifiers. Xpadder is pretty powerful but does take some forethought for a good setup. You can even program a button to move ahead a sequence and another to move backwards in the same sequence so you can have a custom weapon/item switching system in place.

edit: Just recently I cheated in ff7 in the most legit of ways by programming my ds4 to have a button that had the perfect timed throw for the gold saucer basketball game. Sure I could have just cheated with a trainer and added GP but I feel that is going too far to cheat as silly as that sounds.
