    Best Console Controller Drivers/Software For PC Gaming?

    Hello,

    As an example I have the game 'What Remains of Edith Finch', that I originally bought through Steam. Later I found out GOG had a DRM Free version so I jumped at this, so I didn't have to use Steam to play the game, something I'm hoping for more of...

    Anyhow, the game in Steam, you can use a Console Controller, of which I use a Nyko Core PS3 controller. At first I thought the game from the developer supported Console Controllers, to later realize this is something Valve/Steam did, and that the GOG version is only keyboard/mouse support.

    But reading around I've come to realize that you can use drivers/software that will map the controller so you can use it in a keyboard/mouse game.

    Some of the names I know are; MotioninJoy, Xbox 360 controller driver, Better DS3, Xpadder,SCP.

    I don't want to use Motionjoy, I just threw the name out there, I've read to many bad things about it, and Better DS3, not much better too.

    I'm not going to be using Bluetooth, just USB for the controller.

    So there are various ways/methods, just wanting to hear some feedback on any consensus for the best way to go about this?

    Thanks

    SCPToolKit sucks, it wouldn't install properly, then the service wouldn't run, just one big pain in the ass, so forget this one...

    NEXT... hmm

Many sites on the net or in America have them from around 20 to 25 dollars..

    Well Steam seems to be adding in the console support for a lot of games, so it makes me think, all I need is one of these apps to accomplish the same thing.

    But MotioninJoy, I don't want to mess with, read to much bad stuff...

    I'll keep reading around...

    Thanks

    My mistake with SCPToolkit, I didn't play around hard enough LOL, I was leaving out one step for the driver installation, it's working now.

    By the way for anyone looking at this, I just found this for the PS4 controller;

    http://ds4windows.com/

    I'm going to give this one a go...

    I installed DS4Windows and the GUI looks pretty nice, but I only tested it for a few seconds, I've been back and forth hacking on the ole box, trying to be Steam Free!

    I started a game just for a few seconds with the SCPToolKit running and the console worked, I also did the same with DS4Windows running and the console again worked.

    All though, SCPToolKit appears to work with 3rd party consoles, whereas DS4Windows is for PS4 controllers only...

    Oh, and I'm such an Extreme Geek, that when I just start checking into apps like this, and I've found a few, I don't stop the Hunt till I'm sure I've found the best! LOL

    So I'm still on the hunt, and I did find some more apps, I'm gonna test out Pinnacle and InputMapper;

    Ds4windows is amazing. Being able to map the touchpad to whatever I want is great. Multiple profile toggling makes changing games easy. Standard desktop profile has touchpad mapped as mouse movement & left right click, launching a game can automatically change the profile to the game. Also because of the customizable light bar that's how you know your game launch selected the right DS4 profile

    Yeah DS4 seems to be the nicest...

    But for the moment, I am playing some games that GOG has, and they both have Controller support built in, so no need for any 3rd party app, and to be honest, this is the way I'd like to keep it.

    So no 3rd party apps for me for now, and I'm so Geek, after playing with all these apps, I'm a Good Little Geek, I have my trusty Clonezilla backups, I formatted, put back a Clean OS backup, and now, all clean from the apps, and just pure gaming bliss!

    I think most people don't realize, on a side note here, how important it is, to have a clean system for gaming performance, that's why I do what I do, stripped to the bone, and only what I need!
