As a PC gamer using a keyboard and mouse I haven't had much need for a game-pad, but homecoming has changed that need. I did purchase a Saitek P880 game-pad many years back for the OG San Andrea's, but it is no longer compatible with GTA V. I was wondering if anyone has an recommendations for the PC/GTA V compatible PS4-5 style controller, if so please advise?
I hate to be a total nub and post to my own thread, but I thought I would share in the hopes it helps someone.
After doing some research I was able to find this emulator that allowed me to get my 10+ year old Saitek P880 game pad working with GTA. Looks like this emulator works with a verity of game-pads and may work for your old or non xbox game-pads. Really easy to set up and a quick search on YouTube will reveal some support videos. I am in no way affiliated with x360ce and cannot verify the the security of the software, however it worked for me and my computer remains clean.
