View Full Version : Non Xbox Gamepad Problems
09-20-2008, 08:29 PM
I'm using a Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2, trying this game out on Vista 64 bit, and I've got an issue where the analog stick is reversed; If I move forward, I'm moving backward, and vice versa. All other inputs work fine. I've seen this problem around but I haven't found a single solution. Can you guys help me out?

Do you use this game for other shooters without issue? Xbox controller would really be best IMO. I have one but would never use it for a PC shooter. Why would you? Just curios. Keyboard and mouse reign supreme over any controller.

I don't really want to spend the money to get another PC controller when the Logitech works great 99% of the time.
However, I notice they sell just the receiver for the Xbox controller....
And I was wondering if I bought this, would it pick up my console Xbox 360 controller and I could use that for my PC?

I'm using a Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2, trying this game out on Vista 64 bit, and I've got an issue where the analog stick is reversed; If I move forward, I'm moving backward, and vice versa.There's a relatively simple solution:
Control Panel -> Game Controllers -> Properties -> Settings -> Enable swap mode (check)
Gears of war gamepad settings: enable "left-handed sticks" and "reverse Y axis"
All other inputs work fine. Are you sure? Actually, the game "swaps" the A button with the B button, the X button with the Y button and shoulder buttons with shoulder "triggers".

This did it, thank you very much. :D
Although yes, the buttons are swapped, as you said. Not really a huge deal, nothing I can't adapt to, but is there a way to change it so it resembles the 360 configuration, too?

As far as I know, there is no easy (and 100% effective) way to do this. The only way I know is to edit a few configuration files:
.../Gears of War/WarGame/Config/WarInput.cfg
.../Gears of War/WarGame/Config/DefaultInput.cfg
.../Gears of War/Engine/Config/BaseInput.cfg
My Documents/My Games/Gears of War/WarGame/Config/WarInput.cfg
Basically, you have to swap the same buttons:
Bindings=(Name="XboxTypeS_A",Command="Game_MoveAction") -> Bindings=(Name="XboxTypeS_B",Command="Game_MoveAction"), etc.
It mostly works. The bindings remain the same only in a few menus (some "settings" and the "yes/no" menu that appears when you attempt to exit the game).
But, frankly, that's pretty lame. Gears of War certainly isn't the first PC game ported from a console, and most of them (including, for example, Devil May Cry 4) simply don't have this problem.
With Gears of War, you can't even use Logitech Profiler to swap the buttons because the game intercepts the actual button presses. :(

I was able to locate all the files except for .../Gears of War/WarGame/Config/WarInput.cfg. It isn't showing up in the WarGame/Config folder. I changed the bindings on the other three folders but the controls remain the same.

Try to copy WarInput.cfg from (My Documents/My Games/Gears of War/WarGame/Config/) to (.../Gears of War/WarGame/Config/).
I changed the bindings on the other three folders but the controls remain the same.Have you changed all the bindings in these files? You have to change all "XboxTypeS_" bindings (that are swapped):
These files contain more than one group of bindings. You may try to use the search to find (and change) them all.
