Xbox 360 Controller Driver For Ffxi

Posted : admin On 8/22/2021

Since then I've bought a new laptop and I can't remember how to get a 360 controller properly working with FFXI. I think there was a custom driver required called XBCD but I can't find it on Google (only one for the original Xbox). So, two questions: Does anyone have a link to the proper custom driver to get the 360 controller working, with. It does sometimes have problems with the wireless signal getting thru properly due to positioning of the receiver and the controller. But with the switch in the Directinput position, it works very well with FFXI. The Xinput position of the switch makes it work very much like the Xbox 360 controller. Auto tune efx crack. Recently a friend gave me a wired Xbox 360 controller to use on my PC, I have a desktop HP Compaq elite 8300 sff running Windows 10 home pro, The problem is the controller isn't working like it should, I don't know how or where to check for the control drivers or where to go to set up the control functions for it, As you guessed I don't.

So I recently came back and was using my PS4 controller with DS4 and everything was fine for a while. I alternated controllers because I'd have the PS4 active with youtube or streaming and would swap them out when one needed to be charged. One of these times the game just decided it didn't want to detect my controller. Since then I've battled this controller issue and ran it through top to bottom.
Basically the issue is I can get any controller (PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One) to work/detect in Windows 10 and function normally using either DS4 or Xbox Accessories. The wireless ones could be used wirelessly and worked fine when tested with Windows. But at the same time I CANNOT get FFXI Config to register ANYTHING. The only thing I get is a vibration when I do the vibration test in FFXI Config.
Things I've tried:
Update drivers
Uninstall/Reinstall every associated Driver
Tried Direct input via DS4
XInput off/on within config with every controller (even though I know Xbox are XI) both with every combination of XI/DI off/on for every controller with every preset possible (Used test gamepad to see if any button presses were detected)
Uninstalled DS4controller
Different DS4controller
Repaired all C++ Redistibutable
Configured and calibrated all controllers with various apps (DS4, Advanced settings under the devices manager, Steam, etc)
Completely removed DS4
Uninstalled FFXI from steam and reinstalled normally bypassing steam
Attempted every method I could find on google for people with the same issues
Now to me, it seems the issue is Windows > FFXI communication. I cant for the life of me. Ive basically run into a brick wall and I don't know what to do other than play with the Keyboard (which I suck at because of a PS2 > Xbox 360 > PC with controller FFXI career) If worse comes to worse I'll relearn how to use the keyboard but I'm rusty enough as is trying to remember how to play my jobs in general. I haven't even participated in any content because I don't feel confident I can play to a decent ability level. Switching to a keyboard style game I haven't used in a decade will require quite a bit of time to adjust to so I'd prefer to fix this problem instead.
I'm out of ideas. I suspect something in the registry or deep windows settings or some other issue that is far beyond my skills to find/fix.
Please help lol
