How to use your new DualShock 4 on your PC

16 posts in this topic

From GAF:

How to pair your device to BT for wireless play:

(MicroUSB required for wired play)

To put the unit in pairing mode you hold Share button (first) + PS button, the unit will start double blinking white LED.

You should then be able to find it under "Add BT Devices".

UPDATE: How to play Xinput/360 controller supported games with DS4!

-Download x360ce

-Open up the x360ce and put it into the game you wish to play (Must be with the game's .exe!)

-Run it

-Select "Logitec Cordless RumblePad 2" under presets

-Hit Load

-Save

-Replace the xinput1_3.dll with the one found here

-Play the game!

*you may get a "config file does not match" message, just click ok and ignore it.

You can now use your DS4 as a Xinput PC controller, and its very nice actually!

Some new stuff from @Lucian04:

To stop the error message that appears after starting a game, add "Version=1" under the [OPTIONS] section of the X360CE.INI file.

To correct the spinning camera issue, add the X360CE.GDB file to the same location that you place the XINPUT1_3.dll file.

Some Source Engine games may not work properly if the .exe is outside of the bin folder. To correct this, place the X360CE app where the game exe is and then place the XINPUT1_3.dll (and X360CE.GDB if required) in the bin folder.

I tried to do this. My controller gets recognized as a Bluetooth device, it downloads the drivers, but than the controller just disappears from the control panel under devices. I than try to add the device again, it installs the drivers, the controller than shows up on control panel on devices, but again it disappears.

To get rid of the message that pops up, go into the X360CE.ini and add "Version=1" under the [OPTIONS] section. I found a rather annoying issue. Some games, for some reason refuse to recognize X360CE and instead just opt for whatever Windows is telling it that is plugged in. The problem with this is that Windows is telling the game that the triggers are your right analog stick and some buttons end up having dual functions. I ran into this with Dark Souls.

So right now this just works on a game by game basis. I'll go through all of my gamepad enabled games and list off what works, what partially works and what doesn't work.

Dark Souls = X and Y Axis on Triggers, Spinning Camera, Fubar Button Placement

Contagion = Spinning Camera

Far Cry 3 = Perfect

Batman: Arkham Origins = Perfect

@SFLUFAN can you amend the OP with some new information?

To stop the error message that appears after starting a game, add "Version=1" under the [OPTIONS] section of the X360CE.INI file.

To correct the spinning camera issue, add the X360CE.GDB file to the same location that you place the XINPUT1_3.dll file.

@tgo

1) Start "Add Bluetooth Device"

2) Press the Share and Guide Button on your gamepad. It should start double blinking.

3) Check the "Add Bluetooth Device" window. If only "Wireless Gamepad" shows up, the DS4 is not properly connected and will not be installed. It must show "Wireless Gamepad" and "Bluetooth Headset"

4) If it shows both Bluetooth devices, select the gamepad and install. Your PC should now recognize it whenever you turn it on.

Sony should do their damndest to make sure this becomes the defacto PC controller for this generation. They'd make an absolute killing!

What shows up is wireless controller, says bluetooth game controller underneath. Doesn't say "Wireless Gamepad" and "Bluetooth Headset"

Windows 7 or 8? I'm using 8.1 and it showed up as Wireless Gamepad and Bluetooth Headset.

Windows 7 64 bit. Every time I go to install it, it does, but than when I go to devices it's not there. And it doesn't function at all when I launch any game.

I got it working for AC3, which requires all the steps in the OP. It works fine but I think the 360 pad works better since you need to hold down R2/RT for most of the game.

I agree with this 100%, I love using my 360 controller for my PC because of the convenience and wide support, but I would much prefer the Playstation controller.

      I have to say...I am interested in this game now. I just got back into Borderlands 2 so I have a hankering for a loot-based game, and this one looks pretty good. Obviously the guy in the video is using a gamepad so it's really slow, but with a mouse it should be fun. Also happy about the inclusion of fov controls and other stuff that sometimes gets cut when they port a console game.
       
      It also sounds like nvidia is running a deal where if you get a card this summer you get Destiny 2 for free on PC. Since I plan to build a new PC in the next month or so...this suits me fine!
