author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
Here is a profile for Tachyon. An older game, but it was very popular in its day so maybe a few people out there still have it on their hard drive somewhere like I do. I was able to cover pretty much every command and fit it in somehow. Because there is no way to disable the controller in-game, I had to do it manually via text editor. Rather than explain how to do it I included the file, which you simply need paste in your game directory.

- The right stick controls roll. Push it right and the ship rolls right, push left and it rolls left.
- Button Y is a double command, press it once to cycle through your targets. Hold it down to target the nearest enemy.
- Click Right Stick cycles through your various perspectives: Cockpit, 3rd person, and Target view.
- Click Left Stick toggles on & off the grouping of your primary & secondary weapons.
- Shifted Start toggles max throttle and zero throttle.

Please excuse the cutoff text on the screenshots, it's an issue with my pinnacle installation and shouldn't look that way in your config screen.
