I'm sure there are other xpadder profiles but I had been getting requests for this one so hopefully it helps people out. It has a lot in common with my DayZ profile and I tried to keep it all as context-sensitive as possible.

Hi Egg - managed 3rd on my first Battle Royale attempt with this profile so it works!! :)

Had to adjust some stuff though for my playstyle but it's really really good!

Also - the keyboard preset you're using is Arma 3 (not any of the others yeah?) 'cos I had some weird stuff happening for a while. I reset all controls to default Arma 3 preset and it seems a lot better although something keeps randomly triggering 'Double Tap ALT'... I've just disabled it.

Thanks again
ExistentialEgg Sep 3, 2014 @ 7:07am 
Yeah, keyboard preset is Arma 3 default with no changes.

Glad it worked out well, I tried to squeeze everything into it so folks can cater it to their styles.

Hi ExistentialEgg, I got it to go onto my xpadder. But am having trouble to get it to work. I am new to xpadder can you explain step by step following me getting the profile on to xpadder? Just need to get it as a selection on arma3. You said steam -nocontroler?
preacherdude40 Sep 3, 2014 @ 4:30pm 
Also can I invert the aim? Thanks!

I put a launch parameter in steam for Arma 3 "-nocontroller". That will disable the controller support in the game. If a game has controller support then xpadder will not work properly. You don't have to use that launch parameter. You can also disable the controller inside the Arma 3 menu configuration.

Configure / Controls / Controller / Disabled (both sets)

That all comes AFTER you already mapped your controller in Xpadder. I made a profile FOR Xpadder, you need to map your controller in xpadder first to be able to use my profile.

This might help you set up Xpadder.

Thank you, on it.
preacherdude40 Sep 3, 2014 @ 5:21pm 
Thank you so much you have saved me the feeling of being ripped off by this game!! After 10+ hours of support and research that went nowhere. Me freaking out and hating the loss of my hard earned cash. I have finally got the help I needed! You had the answers to my prayers! I did manage to get my invert aim too!!! Now if I could only read the arma 3 text...?

Hey man, I'm really interested In using this but I'm running Xpadder 5.7. I have set out my game pad on Xpadder. Every time I try to load your config I'm getting the range check error, tried to copy and paste the info as well. As far as I know I have the newest Xpadder?
ExistentialEgg Oct 8, 2014 @ 7:36am 
My version is
"Version 2014.07.01" from

I only know of that range check error coming up when it's an older version of xpadder.

Hi - I'm getting an error message. Invalid profile data The pasted profile data is not valid.

I'm running Xpadder version: 2014.07.01

Thanks for your help.
ExistentialEgg Nov 13, 2014 @ 10:49am 
Hmm.. are you pasting in my profile or did you download the profile and try to open it?
That's the same version I have so I don't know why you'd get that error. Can you load in any other xpadder profiles?

I was trying to paste it...that when i got the error message.

I now downloaded your profile from your webpage and it looks like it works now. Thanks for the quick response. :)
ExistentialEgg Nov 13, 2014 @ 11:10am 
Ok, cool. Odd that the paste didn't work. It should. Oh well, at least you got it in there now. :)
