GTA III and Vice City Xbox 360 [Class Alpha]
Hi, This is a profile I have been working on for a long time now. I have been trying to get a good working Xbox Style configuration for this for the last couple of years. I have posted profiles for GTA III and VC before now, as some of you may remember, However this is the best config for it I have created, It combines elements of both Console Versions Control Schemes and The Control Schemes of its successors to provide an even better Control Scheme than Either the Xbox's or PS2's. Some Elements of the gameplay still feel slightly awkward (Like Drive By Shooting) but this is kept to an absolute mimimum.
This Profile has been made using a Combination of The DirectX Override Functions and Keyboard and Mouse bindings as well as the games native built in support for the Xbox 360 Controller. It will work with any Class Alpha Gamepad, but it has been built and optimized for the Xbox 360 Controller and Similar Devices.
The Same Profile Works for Both Games and you Will Need The Game Hooks Installed for it To Work. The Profile Has been made for the Classic Control Scheme So you will need to change it in options. You will also need to remap the Ingame Controls Slighty to match the Control Map. I have attached the Control Map and Control Scheme to This Post and They are also included in the zip.
So Enjoy This Xbox 360 Style Profile for the Classic GTA Games.
Nice job Alec
First let me say thank you for even making it in the first place. Now if you could just help me with it a bit. I have vice city off steam, an wired xbox pad and the latest Pinnacle. I set up your profile, have the hooks installed and mapped my ingame config as you show in your pic. But its not working right. My right analog stick makes me crouch and look back, left click stick is camera. The D pad makes me move like the left analog stick.
How can I get that fixed?
It sounds like the hooks aren't working properly, it may be something to do with the steam executable stopping the hooks from working.
Is there any way to set this up so the camera can be controlled with the right stick at all times?
Sorry About that but the Answer is no because that was never present in the console version, I tried and couldn't get it to work like that. I also tried using the mouse and keys and emulating it with pinnacle but it made the game near impossible to play with a controller without auto aim.

I'm playing Vice City on Windows 7 64 using a standard 360 controller (wired). However, I can't seem to get the controls mapped properly as you have them in your screenshot. For example, some of the controls are mis-labeled or just not working (the right bumper - R1 - doesn't even register).
Also, I notice that the camera sways badly while driving, taking turns etc.
I don't suppose you'd be able to help me out at all? Perhaps you could send me your .set file and see if that works?
The RB thing is just for the first person camera, if you move the left stick while holding RB it will work. It may be a little problematic in parts of the game where you need it though, like aiming the sniper rifle, I was making a version to fix that issue then i lost the profile. and the swaying thing is just the normal reaction when moving the stick left in right while in the car. So basically the game will always do that if playing with a controller. I may be able to make another version sometime with improved sensitivity on the sticks and precise analogue aiming when in first person in the future but not right now feel free to modify the profile and post it if you know how. Until then sorry but I'll fix it when i get round to it, and what you described above is how the profile should work in its current state.
Thanks for the reply Alec.
The only issue I'm having now is that when I hold down the Left Trigger to aim, I turn and run away in the opposite direction. Any ideas how to fix that?
Hey I'm just new to the forum but thought I would post on here as it's about the profile .
I recently downloaded and tried it out but for some reason when I play vice city it won't recognise either trigger or my LB and when holding down the RB button to target it just locks on for a split second then jumps off again.
So was just wondering you if you could help me out a little as I'm new to this whole thing haha!
