Saints Row: The Third

To get Saints Row: The Third working the way it should you will have to do the following...

Download :

http://rapidshare.com/files/422778312/x360ce.vibmod.3.1.4.1.rar

or

http://xinput.googlecode.com/files/x360ce.vibmod.3.1.4.1.rar

Extract the files :

x360ce.ini
xinput1_3.dll
XInputTest.exe


Into the following directory (where you find the saintsrowthethird.exe) :

\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Saints Row The Third\

If you still have problems, you might need to :

1. Find out the name of your gamepad in the control panel (Game Controllers), for me it was "Logitech RumblePad 2 USB".
2. Open Regedit, hit CTRL-F and type the name of your gamepad. It should find something like :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_046D&PID_C218
OEMName REG_SZ Logitech RumblePad 2 USB

3. Select Modify and enter "XBOX 360 Controller for Windows" (without the ").

You may also check that the VID & PID is matching your gamepad in the x360ce.ini file.

The PID & VID should be found as above in the KEY.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_046D&PID_C218
OEMName REG_SZ Logitech RumblePad 2 USB

VID=0x046D #controller VID
PID=0xC216 #controller PID

Now, I hope you get it working... Still I'm not sure if this game is my cup of tea...

  4. Not working here, even with the regedit tip. I finally made it work, but without x360ce this time :-) Just run Logitech Profiler, set a new profile for the game, invert Y left axis (properties / checkbox), and run the game from Profiler.

    ReplyDelete
  5. When you run it first, did you have the logitech profiler active ? if so, it might not work.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Tried both methods (xc360ce and Logitech Profiler) neither of them works for me

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thank You

    "Logitech Dual Action" controller (with NO Logitech Profiler installed) works 100%.

    No need to amend regedit or any other files, just add the 3 x360ce files.

  8. Wanna know as poster above:COD Modern Warfare 3 with Rumblepad??

  9. It worked for me with no edits to the registry or x360ce ini file but like others, I have an inverted Y axis. Hope someone can figure something out.

  15. "Doesnt work for me. Im using a GenericUSB controller. Fwd/Backwrds are mapped to my left and right analog =\"

    Same here

  16. Well, i figured it out. I have Vibmod 3.1.4.0 and it works in every game with vibration. I have played a lot of games just with this Emu, so you should stick with the one that works for you. I had the same problem (swapped stick directions) but i got it to work. I already made regfix,as described above,looong time ago (without the VID and PID change). That made vibration work, but for this game you have to edit the X360ce.ini file and change the begining line FakeAPI to 1. It is set to 0 on Default. Try it. It works for me, vibration and all.:) I have Logi.Rumblepad 2,by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, I figure out that depending on the version of my logitech drivers installed I can get vibration to work sometime. what version do you use for the pad drivers?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, you're probably asking me. It's driver 5.10. I havent updated in a while. I think it's 2010 driver. Works in every game that supports xbox360 controller and vibration, with vibration.:)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Tried everything from the post and from the comments, still left y axis is still inverted.

    Anyone got it to work on rumblepad 2?

    ReplyDelete
  20. The latest on the Logitech site is :

    Title: Logitech Gaming Software
    Software Version: 5.10.127
    Post Date: 08/30/2010
    Platform: Windows 7

    Is that the one you are using?

  22. use the logitec profiler and invert the y axis then go to options and global profile settings then use the option to use the profile all the time
    worked for me ....

    cheers

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yep, that's the version i'm using. 5.10. I guess it's the latest one. I thought by now they would update it. Guess not.:)And 3.1.4.0 x360ce vibmod, because 3.1.4.1 doesn't have vibration.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh yeah, change the registry to xbox360 controller, as described above, because for me that's the thing that made vibration work in every game that supports it.:)I didn't have to write the VID&PID to x360ce.ini file. It worked anyway, but you should do that too. And for SR3 don't copy the dinput8.dll to the game directory, because it won't work properly. And change FakeAPI from 0 to 1 (FakeAPI=1). Hope it works for you too. Good luck!:)

  25. where the fuckkk is VID and PID? in xbox360ce.ini file????

    ReplyDelete
  26. You get them from the controller device in windows, and put em in the x360ce.ini...

    ReplyDelete
  27. thanks work like a charm!! great job man, keep on rollin!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I still can't get it to work, should the pid in the file match the regedit one? both be 218?

    ReplyDelete
  29. God damn i got it to work! Everybody check if in x360ce.ini PID isn't 216 if it is than change it to 218... YES it worked for ME!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah, it can be different depending on pad, etc. so that is why you should look it up as described above. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. yup i just changed 216 in x360ce.ini PID and it started working!!! spent hours looking around on how to fix this lol
