XBOX 360 Controller emulator is a wrapper library that translates the XInput calls to DirectInput calls, to support non-XInput game pads in applications (mostly games). In other words: It let's you use game pads other than just the XBOX 360 controller with games that normally wouldn't support anything else.

X360CE is great, but version 3 (the normal version) has limitations.
Input lag, unsupported games, denuvo protected etc.
New x360ce 4.x Alpha - Beta works around these issues.
Check it out!
A lot of newer games support the Xbox 360 controllers directly through XInput, but prior to that, games were primarily using Direct input. This allows you to play those games with just a great an experience as those games supporting XInput. This is an essential tool in your gaming arsenal.

Pretty essential... makes controllers that work on the technically much-superior DirectInput protocol work with games that only support the measly XInput interface. Does exactly this flawlessly, and has loads of configuration options to set up every little detail the way you want, and make it work with most every game. But usually, it's just plug and play.
