How To Play the Walking Dead PC with PC or PS2 USB Controller

So a gamer on my youtube channel told me that this game could not work with his non-xbox 360 game controller. I got the game, tested it with my PS2 controller with twin usb joystick adapter, and I too could not get it figured out.

In addition, many youtube videos show you about this dinput8.dll file, where you copy it into the root folder, and your xbox 360 game controller work. If you use the same file with your PC controller coupled with x360ce, well, it doesn’t work at all.

After some research, I figured it out. What you need is a “spoof” dinput8.dll and when coupled with x360ce, your game controller will now work with the game. The procedure is simple, but best exemplified with a video tutorial as shown below. Enjoy!

[How To] Play Watch Dogs (PC) With PC or PS2 USB Controller Tutorial

Watch Dogs for PC was recently released, and since it is strictly a 64 bit game for Windows, you are going to have to do some extra work to get your PC USB game controller or a PS2 type controller to work properly with Watch Dogs. The basic outline of how this works is below. The download links are in the video description of the Youtube Video tutorial.

  1. Download latest copy of x360ce.
  2. Download the x64 binaries.
  3. Extract x360ce into the Watch Dogs main directory. Run it and configure your controller.
  4. Now exit the program, and copy over the x64 binaries.
  5. Run the game, and your game controller should be recognized.

Starcraft 2 LAN – Starfriend Method is Very Real and it Works! However…

Starcraft 2 gamers, its time to celebrate! My youtube friend Hidraga told me of a new fan site called http://battle4sc2.com, and this is a portal/forum site that talks about the latest development of Starfriend, which is a TW client that allows you to play LAN online with other people. Yup, and you don’t need to use Hamachi, Tunngle, or any other program.

There is only one caveat though: As of today (7-12-11), you got to download the Chinese version of the game, then download all the associated patches, and then you are good to go.

Don’t worry though, its really easy, and there are tutorials on this already. To learn more about it, go the following links below to get up to speed:

It is unknown in the future if users will be able to use a new version of Starfriend to use with their existing English copies. Time will tell! Enjoy!

Update 7-18-11:

If you start to read the comments here  on this blog, you really have to stop and question if the Chinese program is safe to use at all. The reason behind this move is that we know that China (just in general) is known to have caused global warefare in terms of cyber hacking. Although there is no proof yet that this Starfriend is corrupted, you just got to air on the side of caution.  Since the program is closed source, you don’t really know what is underneath the hood.

As a skeptic, I may not believe what is truth or not in regards to the security of this Starfriend, and if it is trying to hoard my data in the background.  Nonetheless, I am playing on LAN on a PC that has nothing to do with online financials and things of that nature, I will continue to use this program.

However, some of you might be weary of trying to play this, and I don’t blame you. If you do decide to try it out, then maybe what you want to do is keep an eye on your network activity and make sure nothing evil is coming in, or out of your PC. 😛
