XBCD 0.2.7 Release + Info (Updates will be posted here)

Recommended Posts

You can get it directly from or My Skydrive and mediafire


This is a Driver for Xbox and Xbox360 controls to provide proper DirectInput functionality, including Trigger remapping and ForceFeedback.


Installation and Usage Notes:

If you are installing this on Vista / Windows 7 x64, please exit setup and start it again using the RunAs Admin item in the right click menu, This is required for the driver to get write access to the registry, and System32 folder.


On Vista/Windows 7 with UAC enabled, you must run the Setup Utility in this same manner (Run as Admin) for it to be able to read and write values to the registry.

On these operating systems, you can enable Run as Admin on the shortcut itself via the Advanced button on the shortcut tab of the file properties.


A future version will hopefully include a auto-elevation manifest in the dll (At some point it would be desireable to change the setup tool into an executable)


You must also change the Advanced system settings to allow the installation of non whql signed drivers. (Not required on Windows 7)


Xinput Emulation

XBCD also now contains an Xinput emulator which there are 2 profiles available for use on the internet database.

Set XBCD to the Triggers on seperate axis profile or XBCD 360 emu profile in the XBCD Setup app and then start up the x360ce app.


On the Settings database tab, click refresh, then look for profiles with the following hash's

For Xbox Controllers, look for 41FF4C76 (This profile was created on an Xbox S Type, so will be named as such)

For Xbox 360 Controllers, look for 2F8C1B2D (This profile was created on a MadCats MLG Pro Circuit, so will be named as such)

A pictorial guide for configuring x360ce is available at http://vba-m.com/forum/Thread-x360ce-setup-for-use-with-xbcd


Support and HowTo's regarding X360ce can be found at https://code.google.com/p/x360ce/



Windows XP or Higher

MSVC 2010 SP1 Runtime Installed,

NOTE - for x64 you WILL need both the x32 and x64 runtimes installed.



Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable SP1 (x86)

Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable SP1 (x64)


Known Problems:

Driver does not reinit from standby/hibernate requiring a replug. (This may be fixed since getting the driver signed, please report back!)

FULL RANGE DOES NOT WORK ON THE 64BIT DRIVER. Further more, enabling it on 360 controllers may(will) cause BSODS.

The MadCatZ MicroCon 2.4 Ghz (4586) wireless control appears to have problems on Windows 7 and possibly Vista. This is not a XBCD issue, and no known workaround is present at this time. The Lynx(4556) and Wireless(4506) are known to work on Windows 7 and Vista however.


Not a bug

When using Split Axis, only one side of each Axis (Z and R(Rotation)Z are different axis) are assigned, a calibration of the triggers is required to make them behave properly

Some apps read the axis invertedly resulting in the trigger behaving like its fully depressed when calibrated.

  • Restructured the inf, arcade sticks now display as xbcd arcade sticks instead of controllers, also placed in their own section
  • Adjusted the Rumble compiler settings, managing to get the x64 rumble library up to the capabilities of the x86 rumble library.
  • Compiler optimisations adjusted on the Rumble libraries, this may help the few people where cpu load peaked when the controller vibrates (then again it might not).

Preinstall and Post install screens have been updated to define that Windows 8 is not currently supported, and a link to the x360ce guide has been added (Might add it as a shortcut at a later point)

XBCDIF and XBCDSU are no longer packed with mpress, the latest version of mpress makes these files less compressible then just leaving them unpacked leading to an extra 200KB on the installer (thats alot for people on slow connections). This also resolves the case of VirusTotal false reporting the files as trojans, but leaves XBCDSU as being flagged by some barely known AV as suspicious.
