Worms Reloaded

This game got built in game pad support of some sort, but it is very poorly done, I really don't enjoy this kind of built in support for average game pads, that works 80% of the functionality, you can do better using xpadder mapping the game keys as shown below, and installing the xbox 360 emulation, but edit the .ini file and dissable all pads, to make sure xpadder and built in cotroller support don't conflict, now you can get a decent game experience.

But big thumbs down for not going all the way with adding logitech full game pad support guys, or following the xbox 360 controller to 100%.

I would expect a better job from team 17.

Back to Kane & Lynch...

Mafia II

Finally Mafia II is available for the PC, and it works great with your logitech rumblepad2 or dual action game pad, if you install this xbox 360 controller emulation in the following directory :

\Program Files\2K Games\Mafia II\pc\

Download the files from :

Extract and copy the following to the folder...


Now you can enjoy this game as it should be, with a great joy pad. I'm still stuck on playing the awesome Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, so this will have to wait until I've completed it... A quick look says that this game do look good, worth waiting for.

If you got a problem with the game being slow using vibmod you should give the good old v3.0 a go :

unpack, and copy the files to the installed folder :

\Program Files\2K Games\Mafia II\pc\

And it should work just fine...

PS3 JailBreak

While this is a bit off topic, it's a big news for those longing for "homebrew" and alternative stuff on their PS3, and at the moment this might only do backups of games you already own, to be played directly from the HD, at speeds far beyond what the BD player pushes out, one feature that I like. However this is the first generation of this USB dongle and I'm sure that if this works it's only the beginning of what you will see in terms of hacking the PS3.

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

In order to get Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days working with your rumblepad2 game pad, or dual action game pad, you need to add the following files to the folder where you installed the game, look for the file kl2.exe it should be in the same folder...

\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Kane & Lynch 2- Dog Days

Download the file :

Extract and copy the following to the folder...


Now, when you start it you should be able to use your pad. This is a fairly good game, for those of you who likes these kind of games... Edit: Finished the game, and I must say that it is a great game for a mature adult who loves good shooters, with a nice story, enjoyed it so much that I must have a look at the first game to see what it is all about.

It might have been a slow summer, but there is loads of great titles to be released this autumn.

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

Starcraft II, is the kind of game you play with mouse and keyboard, so there is no joypad support whatsoever, your only chance is to use xpadder to map the arrow keys and mouse if you want to play it logitech rumblepad 2 or dual action gamepad style.

This is still a very good game, and it can be enjoyed well with a pad in single player casual mode, since the seconds you loose by using a pad rather than a mouse can be neglected for the convenience of using a pad.

I'm so far more than a few hours into the game, and I must say this is one of the great titles released this year. If you like this kind of games, this is a must play...
