    Default Using a Gamepad

    For anyone that wants to use a pad on DDO...this might help.

    There's an easy way to use a ps3 pad on a windows pc.
    If you have bluetooth, you can even use it wirelessly.

    All you need is a driver and a usb + bluetooth filter service.
    Scarlet Crush from the pcsx2.net forums has created the filter, and microsoft has the driver.

    Go download these two files for your pc.

    1. If you have a bluetooth dongle, or its built in..plug it in and turn it on.
    2. plug in the pad via USB and let Windows install it's default drivers.
    3. Unzip the SCP driver into a folder and run the ScpDriver.exe file.
    XP/Vista - check the Force Install option. Win 7/8 leave it unchecked.
    This will create a service that runs in the background.

    4. Install the microsoft 360 controller driver for your OS.

    5. Go to control panel, game controllers, properties to check if it works.

    Takes a bit to set up keymapping in DDO, but it works nicely

    soo you want less buttons to play the game? As it is they're adding everything under the sun to some classes in order to use em decently, temp boosts, follow ups, one attack leads into a 3rd.

    I mean this things really trying it's damnedest to me hotkey required.

    using a pad recquires to distribute the keys between modifiers and active keys, so you can use L and R (hope they're called yet this way xD) as modifiers and "rest of keys" as active keys

    so you'll have 6 modifiers x 6 active keys = 36 hotkeys

    i think i have 36 only with scrolls and gear XDDDD
    psykopeta - hoarding pl, for the sake of hoarding, the day i become ubercompletionist will be because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    That's not what I think of a game pad for a mmo. I use this: http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/pro...nced-gameboard

    MOAR BUTTONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it comes with it's own simple drivers, that I can completely customize to any set up I want to have.
