Using either the keyboard or the mouse to play videogames on your PC is not always the most comfortable option. Sometimes you'd love to use your gamepad but unfortunately not all games have support for them. Xpadder puts an end to this problem, allowing you to play PC games with poor or no gamepad support at all.

These are the features Xpadder has to offer:

  • Full keyboard and mouse emulation
  • No installation needed - run straight from the Zip file
  • Add gamepad support to emulated, internet and DOS games
  • Play multiplayer games with each player using their own gamepad
  • Control video/music players using their shortcut keys
  • Use a gamepad with a web browser or any windows application
  • Rumble (force feedback) and advanced fine-tuning options
  • Create and share any layout for any controller
  • Multiple profile management using sharable files

xpadder proved to be a better way to control my avatar in Skyrim as I was able to set it up and cover all major actions in the game. I wanted this program so I could put the game on the projector and enjoy playing is 100" high resolution glory! Without Xpadder I had to have the computer on my lap, and though it is technically a laptop, it weighs over 9lbs., and gets very hot. 17" screens are great, but not if they sit on your lap and burn your legs! Xpadder allows me to play for extended hours w/o discomfort or strain. Easily one of the very best programs to come around in a very long time. Thanks Jonathon!

  • Allows use of PS3 or Xbox controllers and many others as well on the PC. Play PC games without being forced to crouch over the table and type in every command. Gameplay with Xpadder is the way it should be - natural.
  • Might not work with every controller ever made.
