Hey, what's going on? You plugged in your PlayStation or XBOX pad in hopes that you'll be able to play GTA on your PC just like you used to play on the console, and for some reason you can't make the controls work properly? You can't use full possibilities of your brand new, XInput-compatible pad? Maybe you want to refresh your childhood memories after ages of playing IV and you're sick of the old-fashioned controls? If any of these apply to you, GInput is the mod you've been looking for! This modification completely rewrites GTA controls handling and ditches DirectInput in favour of XInput. This way, your PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 pads will be handled by the game just perfectly, taking advantage of all their features, including analog triggers. If used with DualShock 3 controller and SCP Driver Package, it can go as far as making full use of SIXAXIS feature, just like some PS3 titles do! This modification features:
  • Complete XInput support, so pads are mapped to match console versions perfectly (including Start button, which can't be mapped on PC version without this modification).
  • Proper vibration support - something that was cut from all PC versions of the game!
  • FIVE (TWO in San Andreas) different control mappings - four setups matching PS2 selectable setups and fifth one being a recreation of GTA IV controls!
  • Pad buttons in In-Game helps, replacing PC key names (depending on user's choice, either PlayStation or XBOX buttons are shown).
  • An INI file with tons of options - including toggleable vibration, selecting controls setup, Invert Look option from console versions, axis inversion options from San Andreas and more!
  • Automatic switching between keyboard & mouse and pad controls, basing on last device input.
  • Support for Guide/PS button. The button is fully functional and can show your Steam Overlay menu if you launched the game via Steam!
  • Cheats input from the pad. Use classic PS2 cheats on PC!
  • Full co-op support in San Andreas - the game can make full use of two pads or bind the first pad to second player, so co-op can be played even if only one pad is connected
  • Increased support for DualShock 3 controllers and SCP Driver Package - including pressure sensitive buttons and SIXAXIS accelerometers
Footages Usage The changes take effect automatically, no need to toggle anything when the game is launched. Supported games
  • GTA III 1.0 (all versions)
  • GTA III 1.1 (all versions, including Steam version)
  • GTA VC 1.0 (all versions)
  • GTA VC 1.1 (all versions, including Steam version)
  • GTA SA 1.0 (all versions)

ControlsSet doesn't seem to change anything for me neither in II nor in VC in this great mod. A year ago, presumably a previous version worked without any issues. Could you please help me?

Bug: Start menu > map > R1 to see the legend. If you press X to show/hide anything it will do it AND exit the map.

Is this for SA V1.01, and will it work safely in SAMP?

This is amazing... It's like I'm playing the PS2 versions :inlove:
vanthranox commented 3 months ago:
LOVE this mod! It's made SA so much easier to play, since it takes away all of the 'retraining' that's sometimes required with game controls. I noticed that it clashes with other mods sometimes though. Is there any way to reassign the buttons via the menus, ini or something else? The Action button for On Foot controls in the GTA IV setup is just gone. Other than that... THANK YOU SO MUCH! This mod is amazing!
