I hope it soon will be possible to set Keys to gaming mouses,

i really would love to have toggle rockets/weapon mods on my mouse buttons 4 n 5.

Any Intel bout this feature, or is there a workaround?

thank you so much ! that’s what i wanted ! :slight_smile:

Thank you a lot for this tool!

Looking forward to give this ago when i get home! :slight_smile:

Now all this would need is to accept my gamepad´s xinput-commands and i am happy :wink:


Oh, and the possibility to change my firing buttons as well.

i find team commands very usefull does this work really ?


and can i change during playing the game or must i quit every time game when i change settings ?

I don’t know about the exact type of your controller but I could use for my Microsoft 360 Controller an alternative driver, where you can assign all axis and buttons to your liking. XInput sound like Microsoft hardware.


When it is the same controler maybe these links are helpfull:

Alternative driver for the wired Microsoft 360 Controller:

Alternative driver for the wireless Microsoft 360 Controller:


When you have the problem, that your stick constantly moves to the left, here is the solution from FlashTHD:,10495.msg20240.html?PHPSESSID=abufou1ci699225m5j1bftsfb4#msg20240


“Also, on the off chance that the controller exhibits ye olde “constantly moving to the left” problem after the install, here’s what you do: download this (or this for the wireless controller), unzip the file named “Delete_DirectInputProperties”, right click, and choose Install. That ought to whip it into shape.”


You find there too a detailed description how to install the driver.

Thx Zirakss for the effort but that won´t help me, since i use a PS3 controller. However, it is seen as a 360 controller, thanks to MotionInJoy software.

In addition to that i could, similar to your suggestion, use Xpadder to assign keys to my buttons and sticks and whatsoever. Sure, it does even work but i assumed that it wouldn´t be needed.




Well, there is an existent xinput file in SC, so normally it would work without any tweaks. I just guess the offered tool here doesn´t realise these keystrokes, since the game itself does (you can use controller ingame without problems, just some “weird” settings - at least for my taste).


Anyway, i was adding this as feedback, since i am pretty sure they are also looking into this kind of stuff. I mean, the even added xinput support and developed this tool after all. Pretty sure it will end up ingame some day.

It is planned to add gamepad/joystick support, but at the moment there is no date for that.

Ah, it’s good to know such driver exists. Even for the Windows 7 variants. A friend of mine tried to use his PS3 controller on his PC some years ago but he could not get it to fully work in the games he liked. I guess that driver could be interesting for him. Thanks a lot!

Yeah, MotionInJoy works perfectly. Just install and set it to 360 emulation and you´re good as long as the game allows 360 controllers or even if it “only” has native xinput support.

very nice tool.

but, it would be nicer when using the binder “weapon mod next”, you only switch through the actuall installed mods

and not selecting ‘no weapon mod’.


Does Xpadder work for this game? I want to try to use my actual joystick.

xpadder works, since it just emulates keystrokes and the program itself isn´t blocked.

Even chatmacros work (which is really helpful for posting links of common phrases!) with my G15, so i´m pretty sure xpadder should have no problem at all.

Would really like to bind “lock target” to MMB like in WarThunder!

but  target lock is on MMB…try it

but  target lock is on MMB…try it

Cant see it works. Isn’t it “target closest enemy” (normally “T” key)?

I mean crosshair targeting.

Crosshair is “R” Button

Great that 0.7.6 allows to modify keys.
