Fix Replace Xinput1_3.dll with a different version[2]

  1. Run X360ce and let the program create xinput1_3.dll and x360ce.ini files.
  2. Configure the controls like you normally would.
  3. Close X360ce.
  4. Download a special xinput1_3.dll.
  5. Extract it and copy it to a folder where you're installing X360ce, replacing the xinput1_3.dll from X360ce.


Information After replacing a file, X360ce will display a warning about configuration file not matching the X360ce version - ignore it.

x360ce not detected[edit]

Information Some games use xinput1_4.dll (e.g. OlliOlli).

Fix Rename xinput1_3.dll

  1. Set up x360ce normally.
  2. Rename xinput1_3.dll to xinput1_4.dll.
