  1. UWP Game Controller Registry


    I have this generic bluetooth gamepad that doesnt have any if its own drivers to install so windows sees it as a HID keyboard device. After reading this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/gaming/registry-data-for-game-controllers am
    i right in saying that if i edit my registry to map the inputs from the gamepad that it should work in my UWP games? Or is it that the game devs have to specifically support a controller?

    I should note that my gamepad is detected and working in the X360CE app but this doesnt work for UWP apps, only x64/x32 native apps.

    Thanks in advance, Ben

    UWP Game Controller Registry

    Hi Ben,

    I would follow the dev support article you referenced since that is more of a developer question that would be difficult to answer on these forums that is more for general support questions and discussions. Just by reading the first paragraph of the article
    it seems like you should be able to set up a generic game pad through the registry to use for UWP games but I can't tell you for sure because I'm not a developer and the developers do not monitor these forums.

    Personally, I recommend just using an Xbox One controller or Xbox 360 controller if you want to play UWP games on the PC using a game pad and not the mouse and keyboard.

    When will the XBOX ONE controller get impulse response triggers on PC games, not purchased from Windows Store?

    Seems like Microsoft does not care. They focus on their terrible UWP and have abandoned any updating of Xinput. As if we should just buy windows store versions. But the windows store versions are inferior in every way and most games are not even available
    on the Windows Store. I have waited for years and nothing has changed.

    It is not the developers fault because Microsoft has only added support for Xbox one controllers through the UWP. All support for Xbox one controllers outside of the Windows Store is through an outdated Xinput that sees any Xbox one controller as an Xbox
    360 controller which has no support for impulse/rumble triggers. The last time Xinput received an update was back when Windows 8 was their newest OS.

    Perhaps a petition should be started to convince Microsoft that this is a feature that people want to see, and that there are thousands if not millions of annoyed customers who expected their Xbox one controllers to be fully compatible on windows 10.

    If the UWP wasn't so terrible and restricted in so many ways there would probably be more Games on it and they would receive the full impulse trigger support. But the UWP is so unredeemably bad that developers and consumers alike have mostly avoided it.

    Please update Xinput Microsoft. People want full controller support!

    Fault in registry

    Hello myprecious666,

    From the FAQ:

    When will I receive my Rewards Credits?

    Your Rewards Credits will appear as pending within 96 hours of completion of each specific offer.

    Since you only played your remaining time for Crossout on the 28th, we only received that information this morning. Please allow a full 96 hours for us to receive and process recent activity. For example, since your last play time for Frozen Free Fall and
    Prominence Poker was on the 21st and 14th, those games were already processed and showing on your FREE Ride offer.

    I get "Sorry we can't sign you in. Try signing in at xbox.com then start this app again".

    I was having the same issue. When you uninstall the game and reinstall, Microsoft uses the same bad information in the registry to install the file again.

    Here's the solution:

    Open the registry and find #gamename# and delete the key. Then repeat find (F3).

    This will take some time. If you find keys that will not let you delete them, it's because there's another user that has the game installed. You must login that user and edit the registry again deleting all the keys with the #gamename#.

    My #gamename# was taptiles
