Controller Problems in every game.
It seems in the last 6 months, Either Microsoft or some one is deliberately screwing up our controllers to try and force us to buy that horrible 360 controller.

So again, in TR the controllers are completely messed up again, with no way to change them in game, as is with all console ports.

So is there any way I can set my Logitech controller up to use the right button configuration?

Ok, I found you can change it in the control options. So I can play now. But for my other games its still a problem.

It isn't about Microsoft, it's what the game is compatible with.. Microsoft has no relation to these PC games LOL. Just a lot of games are built around the 360 controller

All the games have button configs.
Unfortunately, the TR games don't work with x360ce though so it might not be as good as can be if using a dinput pad.
I ended up preferring the mouse/keyboard combo with this game.

Why would you not buy a 360 controller? Those logitech programable controllers are a piece of♥♥♥♥♥♥ Once you get a 360 control for PC you will be so happy with it I guarantee. Just load up any new game, pick up controller and away you go, no hassle with different setups for each game or rebinding every action in game to match your programme

Works excellent with a Logitech F710. Using it in Xinput and it's pretty much the same thing as an Xbox one software wise (games will recognize your F710 as a 360 controller). I even prefer the F710, since the layout of the 360 one is horrible in my opinion. Plus I have the option to use direct input for legacy games w/o Xinput support.

If you're looking for a new controller I highly recommend it. It's the same controller Valve has shown in the Big Picture mode ads.

EDIT: Person above me has clearly not used any of the good Logitech controllers. I haven't had a single problem with my F710.

If the game supports Xinput it works EXACTLY the same as a 360 controller. If it doesn't, I set it to direct input and use the software that came free with my controller. What software does Microsoft give you for games that don't support Xinput?

The Microsoft brand of 360 controllers (the only ones I can get) are of a low quality and have manufacturing defects. The dead zone of the joysticks is huge and the springs dont auto center them properly. I've had my Logitech Wireless Rumblepad for 7 years and dropped it countless times and it still works as good as the day I got it.

Recent games I've played that force you to use 360 controller: Batman Arkham City, Binary Domain, I Am Alive, Skyrim.

Use Mouse and Keyboard, problem solved!

Well I bought a 360 controller. In games that are made for 360 controller such as Sleeping Dogs the deadzone on the sticks is HUGE, but in a game that is not origionally set up for the 360 controller it has no deadzone and is as sensative as it needs to be, (although the sticks do not auto-center properly). I dunno why this is. and in any game the trigger (for throttle) has a HUGE deadzone of about 40% before vehicles accelerate. The Microsoft Xbox 360 controller is just badly manufactured, but I am forced to use it in these games.

this game controls great with mouse and keyboard, just find the right sensitivity and after a minute or two of practice it will feel natural. When I do use a controller, I prefer the Xbox 360 controller. The dead zone is by design and is no where near as large as you are making it out to be. The auto centering in most other controllers are way over done ( especially ps3 ) and tend have to fight to keep my crosshair on a target in shooters and with that slight deadzone on the sticks ( and it is slight, stop over reacting ) makes much more natural to go from up and right to down an left ( with most other controllers it feels like rolling over giant marble and is kinda tough because your thumb doesnt move in every direction in straight lines. )
