What is XOutput?

XOutput is a software that can convert DirectInput into XInput. DirectInput data is read and sent to a virtual XInput (Xbox 360 Controller) device.

XInput is the new standard game controller input on windows, and DirectInput can no longer be used with Universal Windows Platform software, and many games are designed with only Xinput in mind, but with this tool you can use DirectInput devices such as old gamepads, wheels, joysticks, flight sticks, etc.

Said about XOutput as an alternative


quick and very easy to use and works perfect for the xbox app to register it as a 360 controller which means i get to use older hardware like a racing wheel or even play-station controllers on my xbox one
