    Hello everybody,


    I'm actually doing some gaming tests on my surface Pro , but there is one thing I still havent found and i'd love to have

    A "On Screen" Gamepad !

    I'd like to not have to always plug my Xbox360 Controller to play games, is this thing exists and is stable? Do you have any names? Links? (Free if possible)


    Thank you

    Vivz.

    there's also https://gameplay.gestureworks.com/
    it works better than virtualgamepad, BUT the game must suport DX9 for higher for it to work. so, some older games will not play nice. for these older game, virtualgamepad works fine as well.

    Yep I've found both,

    They both have their pros and cons,

    Gestureworks works on fullscreen games but sometimes it's a pain to make it work (like with steam games). And it don't work with emulators.

    Virtual game pad only works on windowed games or fake fullscreen but about me it's easier to config and install. And it works with emulators.

    I've done 3 videos of this one on 3 different emulators.

    That one is very nice!
