Xpadder works with all game controllers (gamepads, joysticks, arcade sticks, steering wheels, dance mats, drum kits, guitars, flight and mech hardware, buzzers...)
If your controller is designed for a games consoles or for PC games then Xpadder will work with it.
However, before Xpadder can communicate with your controller you need to have installed driver software for it. A driver allows Windows to see your controller and it is how joystick-enabled games and Xpadder can read the controller. The driver is usually on the CD that came with your controller. You can also download the driver from the manufacturer's website.
If your controller is not USB then you need an adaptor to convert your controller's connection to USB. The adaptor will be supplied with a driver so that Windows will recognise your controller.
How can I test to see if my controller driver is installed?

You need to install drivers so that Windows and Xpadder can read your controller. Have a look at here for more help with drivers
If there is no driver available will Xpadder support it?
No. Xpadder is completely dependant on a controller driver. If the Windows Game Controllers Control Panel cannot see your controller then neither can Xpadder or any other program.
If a driver does become available in the future will Xpadder support it?
Yes and if there are features of the driver that Xpadder does not support by default I will try my best to add them.
Will you (the Xpadder programmer) write a driver for my controller (Wii,PS3,Chatpad,insert unsupported controller here)?
No. I'm busy with Xpadder!
Can Xpadder remap axes or alter buttons numbers?
No, Xpadder can only read current axes and buttons and simulate keypresses and mouse actions for them. Xpadder cannot change how Windows or games will see your controller.
Can Xpadder handle more than one controller at the same time?
Xpadder can handle 16 controllers at the same time.
They can all have their own key assignments so you can have multiplayer gaming without all crowding round the keyboard.
They can either all be different controllers, all be the same controller or some the same and some different!
I have an Xbox 360 controller question?
