Method 1:
VJoy Virtual Joystick Driver
can create virtual joysticks in Windows, and comes with a tool which allows you to map keystrokes to the virtual joysticks axes and buttons. Our custom ini will map the X-Arcade to the same buttons layout as a Xbox 360 controller in Windows. This means that any game you play that has an Xbox 360 controller option will work with no additional setup needed.

  1. Download VJoy and install it. Windows will warn you that it's an unsigned driver, choose continue anyway.
  2. Download X-Arcade.ini (right-click and choose 'save as', IE users may need to rename the .htm to .ini) and place it in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\VJoy
  3. Open VJoy and click 'Open Ini" and choose the X-Arcade.ini file.
  4. You can test your settings in the standard Windows Game Controller test. Note that the Player 1 joystick can change between analog mode and D-Pad mode using the Numlock key, numkey on is D-Pad, off is Analog.

Method 2:
You can use our 2in1 adapter to connect your X-Arcade to your PC so that it acts like a normal game controller, but this will requre using a special driver and software called MotioninJoy (We can't help you with this). Alternative.

You can also use a Playstation2-PS3/USB adapter (or our Xbox 360 adapter kit) along with our Playstation 2 adapter to connect your X-Arcade to a PC via USB. This allows you to change modes just like on the PS2 & 3 console.
