Controller Support?
I can't map my xbox 360 controller correctly via options in the game. Anyone out there know how to solve this issue? I've read that some people download something called "pinnacle" for mapping, other than that I'm not sure what to do. I'd really like to play this like I play GTA IV.

This problem is frustrating me also. There is no way to map the very crucial analog triggers on the Xbox 360 controller. Pretty much renders the game worthless. Anybody know of a fix?

I wish I knew of a fix, the mapping for the xbox360 controller is nothing like it was on the xbox 360 downloadable one.

Apparently this is the pinnacle that I was talking about, thanks Tracyhamlin1989. Although I did see quite a bit of bad feed in the comment section. Many of the posts were about how the software isn't as good as i could be (but the market is barren for controller emulators). I'm on the fence about this product, mostly due to it not working well with Windows 7 (from what I've read). If anyone gets this working please tell me, as I'm not one to download just any software to my rig.

it should work on windows 7 i know for sure it works on windows 8

From my exerpience. On windows 7 it works perfectly. It does NOT work well with a Xbox 360 controller or keyboard and mouse. Your best bet is to buy a cheap ps1/2/3 controller, or a logitech controller.

^ Personally, I bought a PS3 controller from a friend for extremely low cost, and you simply download some drivers and it's good to go from the default gamepad layout within San Andreas. I've heard people use PS1/2 controllers with a $5 USB adapter, and "non" Xbox 360 controllers should work fine.

Main problem is that GTA has a LOT of actions programmed to the same button, so if you use anything that doesn't resemble a Playstation controller (including keyboard + mouse) it will feel extremely odd.

I have had Pinnacle Game Profiler for over 2 years and Windows 7 64bit. Pinnacle is absolutely the best there is. I have San Andreas set up with a combination of Pinnacle and the key mapping in game. It works great with my 360 controller but it took some time to get it set up right. I would definitely NOT download a profile from Pinnacle because they are terrible. It is best to make your own profile for the game.

how do you make your own profile for the game
globalmcmillian May 8, 2013 @ 1:43pm 
OK guys thanks, I'll give it a try.
globalmcmillian May 8, 2013 @ 9:45pm 
I downloaded pinnacle and tried to use one gta san andreas profile. When I hit play it said playing gta san andreas, then I went to steam and clicked play. It still wouldn't work correctly, my left trigger (xbox360 controller) was assigned where the A button should have been. Any help?

after you get pinical you can set your own controles in the game your in pinnacle
