Can you use a controller with Xmouse Button control?

Nothing happened, just a question
1st day
US keyboard layout

I'm new to these forums, so all that up there is me following whatever this tells me to do.
Now, since thats out of they way, i have a question.
I'm new to Xmouse button control, What sparked my interest of this program is i've seen people talk about using this program to use controllers on programs that dont have native controller support, I'm wondering, is that possible?

First, thank you for filling out the information. It may not be a requirement in this case but its always good to know what I'm working with when people report problems and/or ask questions :).

Now, by controller, what exactly to you mean? Do you mean a game console type of controller? If so, then no that is not currently possible, although it might be a good idea, XMBC has traditionally only been able to configure mouse buttons and I would expect (but I don't know) there to be other software out there to allow a game controller to be configured in similar fashion.

It might be something that I can add in the future, but to be honest, there is enough to be getting on with just concentrating on the mouse, so I don't want to give any false hope here!

Regards,
Phil

Quick look at AlternativeTo.net shows some tools for gamepad (there is more if you include commercial or otherwise dubious software):

- antimicro - https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro
- J2K - https://emulation-evolved.net/?q=node/19 (not to be mistaken with similarly named commercial tool)

XInput specific:

- JoyXoff - https://joyxoff.com/en/
- Gopher360 - https://github.com/Tylemagne/Gopher360

DualShock specific:

- DS4Windows - http://ds4windows.com/

Nintendo Switch Pro controller should appear in Windows as regular DirectInput controller.
Therefore antimicro and J2K should work with it.

Now after looking for Nintendo specific apps, I found:

- WiinUPro - http://www.wiinupro.com/

Even more choice.
