You have to keep in mind Arma was never designed to be played with a game pad and its Impossible to do every thing you need to do with a game pad in this game .And that's why you wont ever get full controller support. But you can design a profile for your controller that suits you and your play style. I find it works fine for infantry and its great for flying and tanks etc .But you will never get the accuracy you get with a mouse.And YOU WILL ALWAYS need a keyboard and mouse by your side for your inventory and command system and map .
And you have to disable the xbox controller in the Arma menu as this programme simulates the keyboard and having the controller enabled will interfere with this .The hard thing about these programmes is finding the sweet spot with the dead aim , you can configure this in xpadder .Allot of the profile come down to your own personal preference and play style.
Any comments and ideas to improve it are always welcome I also made a guide on steam forums for Arma3 for this , so you can leave some feed back there and give xpadder some loving
UPDATED ON 29/03 , I have a new profile on steam guide for arma its a all in one set no switching .But you need to change a few in game bindings for it to work.
Will look at it again when the beta starts are planes and tanks get added.If any one wants the custom in game key bindings for the all in one set and has problems with the copy paste , let me know and i will post details of each key i changed in game to get it working
You need to set your arma controls to default as thats how the profile is mapped.Will update the profile as Arma updates
NOTE FOR BOTH SETS IF YOU DOUBLE TAP LEAN WHEN CROUCHED ARE STANDING IT WILL KEEP YOU IN THAT POSTION ,DOUBLE TAP AGAIN TO RETURN TO NORMAL STANCE
Note for best results with this set map the left stick in game menu for infantry movement , then you can control the speed of movement with the left stick like arma default
INFANTRY PRESS START TO SWITCH BETWEEN THE SETS
