InputMapper - Now supporting more devices and plugins.

If you are interested in the hardware, I can most certainly donate enough to cover the rather negligible expense of an adapter and a psone controller. You may need more than that, I wouldn't know, but you certainly know your stuff, and I have full confidence that given the resources to do so, you wouldn't have any trouble getting these things to work for the two of us who just refuse to give up on our ol-timey controllers, lol. In fact, I'm looking for a way to get mine to work with a Windows game, Forza 6. Seems to only like xbox controllers. Whadda gonna do, amirite? It may be easier for all involved for me to just get the xbox controller, but I'm wondering what you could do here... To that end, would you or any of the fellow gurus know of any way to possibly emulate an xbox controller, so that the psone controller basically gets 'translated' ? Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might share on this.

Depending on how the adapter exposes the controller, it may already work under IM 2 using the generic direct input plugin.

InputMapper 2 is nearing final release. It is designed to support all kinds of controllers, is plugin driven, and has even more mapping options made possible with mapping plugins. IM2 Beta is currently available at

Automatic profile switching based on active application, Adjustable stick sensitivity and curves for pinpoint accuracy, highly configurable custom macros, button combinations for macros to extend the functionality, full trackpad to mouse support, full rumble support (with rumble compatible games).

- Windows Vista SP1, 7, 8, 8.1
- .NET 4.5.2 *
- C++ Common runtime libraries *
- USB 2.0
- SC Virtual Bus Drivers *
- Micro USB cable **
- Bluetooth 2.1+EDR minimum Broadcom chipset (Windows BT stack) ***

* Bundled with installer
**Required for wired mode only. USB cable must be a full data capable cable. The USB that comes with PS4 and most cellphones are good for charge only.
*** Required for bluetooth wireless mode only. While some users have had success on stacks other than the Windows stack, the Windows BT stack is by far the most successful.
*** Due to the constraints of the project, and the cost involved in developing for varying hardware, we are unable to fully guarantee compatibility with various BT adapters, the best we can do is to say which ones have worked for us thus far, it is recommended to visit our forum thread and ask around for suggestions from other users who have had success with various BT adapters.

InputMapper 1.6 has been released.

Along with the updates stated in the previous post, it has a silent hands off workaround to getting past the Windows 10 AU exclusive mode issues.
