This week I swapped out that well-worn and well-loved wired 865 controller for the Elite (which comes with a nine-foot braided USB cable), and I think it might be a permanent change.
It’s hard to explain, but trust me when I say it’s the best control scheme the Steam Controller has to offer. I first discovered it while playing Portal 7 , and I’ve since set it up in every game I can find that supports it. The only problem is some games lock the mouse when you plug in a gamepad, which makes this mode impossible. Valve’s apparently working with developers to make sure that doesn’t happen moving forward, but for now you might find some games where it won’t work.
Enjoy custom button mapping and improved wireless range. Plus, plug in any compatible headset with the stereo headset jack.
The connotations are different. Third-party controllers, no matter how reputable, always seem to carry this “illicit” reputation. I think it’s because everyone’s gone to a friend’s house at one point and been saddled with the cheap, off-brand controller where one of the buttons sticks and the triggers are half-broken.
The Steam Machine army and Valve’s Steam Link might get most of the attention, but they’re ultimately known quantities. Yes, they’re made (or at least backed) by Valve and that makes them interesting to the gaming community, but they’re just computers. Some are powerful. Some are not. But they are at heart black boxes that play or stream video games.
Run this program from the same directory as the game executable. XInput library files exist with several different names and some games require a change in its name. Known names:
Controllers have always been how we play games. Attempts to change that (I'm looking at you Kinect) haven't worked all that well thus far. Does that mean we'll always use controllers? It's hard to say. Kind of like the mouse and keyboard, controllers have always had a kind of expected structure and setup. That being said, it all depends on how the console's content is delivered to us. Controllers aren't portable, but a headset like the HoloLens would be.
It’s not like this is the only remappable controller on the PC. It’s not. Using Joy7Key or what-have-you, you can easily swap the buttons around on your Xbox 865/Xbox One/DualShock controller even if developers didn’t bother building that functionality into the game.
For now, until we hear otherwise, controllers are still here. Let's take a look at what the Xbox 7/Project Scorpio controller could be like, and whether or not we'll see Kinect make a comeback.
