All PC and laptop gamers have had trouble with gamepads at some point. Usually Windows or a certain game won't recognise the pad or certain button presses. Xpadder is the solution to these woes making pads more compatible and even giving you ways to use your pads for other tasks.
An independent gamepad solution
Xpadder was coded by an independent software developer. While it isn't free it is cheap and your money goes to supporting ongoing improvements. The primary function of Xpadder is to map keyboard and mouse actions to your gamepad's buttons. For example pressing X on the pad can make the computer think you pressed the number 3 on your keyboard. Some games don't support pads but do support keyboard buttons so this software solves that problem instantly. Working with Windows 10 down to XP this is ideal if you have an Xbox or similar controller but have trouble getting it to work.
Clever easy to use and surprisingly handy
The great thing about Xpadder is that it's uses don't stop with games. For example you could map your pad's buttons to the media controls on your PC turn your pad into a remote control. For the cost it's a very handy bit of kit and it uses visual guides to make remapping your controller super easy.
