Fifa 14 gamepad fix – fixes Right Stick and multi controller bug

If you are someone who uses a cheap controller (also known as chinese controllers) for playing your Fifa games you’ve probably noticed that the Right Stick (the one used for skill moves) doesn’t function. Sometimes the game detects two controllers instead of one.

The reason is simple. Modern games are designed using the XInput API but the cheap controllers support the older DirectInput. Naturally there is a mismatch and the game doesn’t recognise signals sent by the controller. Most forums mention using the x360ce emulator but it didn’t work for me.

My search brought me across several forums and eventually I found this:

Fifa 14 controller fix

Here’s what you’ve got to do….

Download this file http://www.4shared.com/rar/VTowBz3nce/Fifa_14_gamepad_fix.html. You need WinRAR to open it. I recommend downloading with Facebook or Google or if you are a member of 4Shared already, there shouldn’t be any problems. Otherwise anti viruses often block it.


Fifa 14 controller fix

  1. Go to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Devices and Printers. For Windows 7 users just click Start and go to Devices and Printers.
  2. Right click on the controller and select Properties.
  3. From the new window click the Hardware tab and go to Properties.
  4. Another window appears; got to Details tab and from the dropdown menu, select Hardware IDs. You will get something like this: HID\VID_####&PID_####&REV_####. There will be some numbers in place of those #s.
  5. Open the “x360ce.ini” file in notepad and find VID=0x**** (controller VID) &
    PID=0x**** (controller PID). Replace the *s with numbers you found.
Example:

    HID\VID_1234&PID_5678&REV_**** then it should look like
    VID=0x1234
    PID=0x5678    in your x360ce.ini file.

Now save the file but don’t close it yet. You can close the two Properties windows now. Next, from Devices and Printers right click on your controller and select Game Controller Settings. Go to the Function Test tab and leave it open.

Run the "XInputTest.exe" file and match all the buttons. If some buttons don’t match then re-map them in the x360ce.ini file (starting from "A=3" to "Right Trigger="). Save the file every time you make a change and run the "XInputTest.exe" to check it. Press any button on your controller and check which corresponding button is activated on the XInput Test. Use the Function Test tab to have an idea of the actual button name.

On this screen shot, I have pressed the 2, 7, 8 and the D-Pad button on my controller; the corresponding results are shown on the XInput Test. When you finish, save and close all windows.

Then copy "x360ce.ini" and "xinput1_3.dll" and locate your FIFA 14 install folder, should be in X:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\FIFA 14\Game or X:\Program Files\Origin Games\FIFA 14\Game or something similar. Paste both files in this location.

Run the game and check if it works. If it doesn’t then just re-check and follow the above instructions. It should be the same for multiple controllers by I couldn’t test it because I’ve got only one.
