Hi all,

I've been working on this for the last 4-5 hours and i finally finished it. And guess what? You don't have to go through all the trouble i've gone because i'm such a nice person that i'll share it with you here. It's working perfectly on my Sony DualShock 2 connected through the USB port and i believe it would work on DualShock 3 too. And it should work on every gamepad which has 12 buttons, 4 way POV (digital d-pad) and 2 analog sticks. By the way if the axis-commands feature worked as if it should, i'd have done something wonderful but no matter what this is very nice work already.


As there's no way to tell the profiler software that Niko is in a car or on foot, you have to manually double-tap the "triangle" button to toggle "ON FOOT" and "IN VEHICLE" profiles. To get into/out of cars, normally just tapping the "triangle" button should suffice but it doesn't strangely. You have to hold that "triangle" button a little longer than tapping for the software to accept the input. You can tell which profile are you in now by clicking L3 when on foot, or R2 when in a vehicle. If Niko crouches or the vehicle accelerates it means that "ON FOOT" and "IN VEHICLE" profiles are selected respectively.

See you around :):):)
