Use default preset for a generic gamepad[edit]

If you don't have one of the very few gamepads supported officially, all keybindings will be blank and you'll need to map every action manually. That is very tedious. Instead, you can download and use a preset configuration that should work reasonably well for most gamepads (and just fine-tune if needed).

Edit configuration files[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Back up InputSettings.dat, perhaps as InputSettings.dat_orig.
  3. Download new configuration file from this Steam community post.
  4. Save it as InputSettings.dat replacing the original file.
  5. Run the game, check that default gamepad bindings are present, fine-tune if needed.
