GTA 3 Xbox controller
Hi, dose anyone on here use the xbox 360 controller to play their games. The reason i ask is when trying to set up the controls it dosnt allow me to allocate the L+R triggers.

The mod he mentioned is by steam user silent and can be found here: Achieving full XBOX 360 Controller support in GTA III. It also includes files for supporting PS3 controllers, which is nifty.

It not only adds full controller support, it also can bind the start button to pausing and unpausing, something you can't even achieve with regular non Xinput controller configurations (X-input is something involved with Xbox and PS3 controllers that I don't really understand either, but it's something Rockstar forgot to account for when porting the game and have slacked off in patching it in) In addition, it adds proper button prompts to whatever control method you're using, as well as being able to switch between them if it detects you using another (from controller to keyboard, you could switch back and foth if you really wanted with this mod).

It requires a small installation of a few files, following the readme's instructions should give you no issues. It's virus-free, thank goodness, and the files are anything but cumbersome. I don't use a lot of mods because I prefer the vanilla game-- but this mod is a MUST.

Unfortunately, it seems that the only available link is a dead one at this point. There's a working link in the comments section for a version of Ginput for Vice City, but it doesn't seem he's updated the one for 3, sadly. If you have a Google+ account, I can probably share the very same file with you on drive.google.com since I've backed it up for myself for just such occasions.

That would be fantastic if you could share it. i have a google account, do you just need the email address?

Yes, actually-- but instead of broadcasting it on Steam might be better that you say it via private message. I just sent you a friend invite.

Hey, is there any way you can send me that file to? I've looked all over the web and can't find it anywhere.

The only way I can really get it to you at this time is if you've got a google email.

Darrark, put the file on dropbox or something if it's not asking too much. I can pass my email to you also, if you want.

Here is a download link for the mod:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/o9mqw3m8be99fnd/GInputIII_1.02.zip
...
I got the file from Darrak, who commented up here.
Because the original download link is broken:
http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=24272
...
But it was created by Silent, the author of this guide and the mod:

I hope he uploads his amazing mod again to another forum or website.

WOW! Thank you very much for all your help. IT WORKS!! This mod should be up everywhere. Thanks again to Darrak and etaques for your help. And, of course Silent for creating this amazing mod.
