Using D-pad with FF7 on 7th Heaven 2.0
« on: Yesterday at 00:02:45 »
Hi everyone,

I apologize if this has been covered or if this is the wrong place.  I'm new here and new to 7th Heaven, etc.

I got 7th Heaven 2.0 and an 8bitdo SN30 Pro controller to play FF7 with mods, but I'm trying to make the controls as close as possible to the PS1 original. 

I've tried Xinputplus and the controls settings in 7th Heaven but can never get the game to allow Dpad controls.  I can only get them to work when changing the controls in Steam and launching from there (which doesn't load the mods). 

How can I get the Dpad to work within 7th Heaven? 

Thanks so much and I apologize if this is in the wrong place or been covered many times.

You can't get your d-pad to work natively unless your drivers support remapping the d-pad as buttons rather than HAT / Axis.

You'll either have to add 7th heaven to steam as a non steam game and remap the dpad with steam to act as an analog stick. Or alternatively, use something like JoyToKey to map the Up/Down/Left/Right key inputs to your dpad.

The GAME (let's be clear: 7H is only a mod manager and game launcher) only has partial controller support. That means no d-pad, among other things. You can emulate/fake support for the d-pad and other buttons on your controller with 3rd party apps. There's a link in the below thread where I write up a fairly detailed guide:
