We all know we have that one stubborn game that won’t allow configuration of the gamepad, or have any known place to input gamepad configuration.
we don’t know why some game designers and developers do bring out a game for computers without a place to input gamepad configuration for computers. these reasons are best known to them but we do know something for sure some games have more than 24 control buttons like the hitman blood money

which can be very hard to configure because it doesn’t have gamepad support, and on gamepad due to the unavailability of many buttons on the gamepad controller.

We all know that most gamepad used on pc are the likes of (play station 2 controllers) design like the type of U-COM which is sold in Nigeria and some part of the world which has just 24 buttons which include l1,l2,r2,r1, d-pad 4-way button, the action button(x, triangle, square, circle) the left analog 4 way, right analog 4 way, start, pause and the left and right analog button which can be done by just pushing the analog button down. All this button is up to 24 or less which sometimes won’t be enough for a game which might be the reason why some games are only meant to be played on keyboards because the keyboard has a lot of buttons on it.

But we are going to show you a way of playing a game which only supports a keyboard or mouse with your gamepad.

We are going to use a software called joy to key this software is free and can be downloaded here it is 2mb


To unzip download 7 zip below


now open the game you wanna play go to options control on your game then keyboard settings yours might be different due to different game design, but I will be using the hitman blood money as an example.

it using Winrar or 7zip or any other zipper.


After that run the software as administrator, the software looks like the below picture.

In some games, the mouse is used for an overview or something else but for hitman blood money it is used for overview now we wouldn’t want to use the mouse to view when we have a gamepad click on the button you wanna assign on the screen, best button to view will be the right analog that what I used because its easy to control and most games are configured like that.

Click on the button you wanna assign

lick on edit button assignment ( the right analog button will be used in the place of the mouse)

Click on the mouse, it is after keyboard (multi) at the top
Click on the mouse movement either up, down, left, right then save, do this to all,

you can also adjust mouse movement speed too.

the hitman has many buttons some buttons will be left out. you can just leave some buttons which are not used frequently on the keyboard
