Setting up all Xbox 360 Controller buttons/sticks/triggers to play in JE

I am able to get most of everything working on my xbox 360 wireless controller (I still have problems with the LT and RT triggers being treated like axis and not buttons-minor annoyance). In order to do this though, you will need to edit the Jade Empire configuration settings file. The in-game controller configuration is useless and just can't do squat.

You will need to do the following:

1) Locate the "JadeEmpire"-without quotations- (Configuration Settings) file – Usually in the \Steam\steamapps\common\jade empire directory

2) Suggest copying it to another location and renaming it to JadeEmpire_Original before making any changes to the file. If you screw up, at least you have a backup of this file.

3) Open the JadeEmpire (Configuration Settings) file using Notepad.

4) Now scroll down until you locate [Controller (Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows)] – This is where you assign each function to the button you want.

The guide for buttons is as follows:

A button = Button 1
B button = Button 2
X button = Button 3
Y button = Button 4
LB button = Button 5
RB button = Button 6
Back button = Button 7
Start button = Button 8
Left Stick button = Button 9
Right Stick button = Button 10

Left Stick (Left/Right movement) = Left StickX
Left Stick (Up/Down movement) = Left StickY
Right Stick (Left/Right movement) = Right StickX
Right Stick (Up/Down movement) = Right StickY
LT trigger = Left StickZ
RT trigger = Right StickZ

When you're done making the changes, don't forget to save the file.

HTH.

This is my Configuration (as an example):

[Controller (Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows)]
Movement L/R=Left StickX
Movement U/D=Left StickY
Look L/R=Right StickX
Look U/D=Right StickY
Menu=Button 8
Combat Pause=Button 9
Fight Style 1=Hat 1
Fight Style 2=Hat 1
Fight Style 3=Hat 1
Fight Style 4=Hat 1
Attack=Button 1
Block=Button 3
Strong Attack=Button 2
Focus=Button 4
Chi Strike=Button 6
Chi Heal=Button 5
Target Left=Left StickZ
Target Right=Right StickZ
No Target=Button 9
Free Look=Button 10

***Please note: Free look is disabled by default. This is a feature that allows you to see though your characters eyes (First Person perspective). If you want this feature enabled, just look for:
[Config1] and change to Free Look=v (or to any key input you want)
[InputOptions] and change to Free Look=1.

Also, if you look under \Steam\steamapps\common\jade empire\docs directory, you'll find the art book and poster that came with the retail copy (both in PDF format).

Enjoy.

You, my good man, are a legend of legendary proportions. Tales of your excellence shall be told for generations.

Seriously, this is just what I came on the forums to find, thanks .


edit: that said it doesn't appear to work flawlessly, the game seems confused as to whether I'm clicking left or right.

Yeah, 'not flawless', but still better than the dang defaults that never seemed to work.

I've got Pinnacle Game Profiler and might tweak the button config more. Just have to figure out how to remove the in-game controller support (they seem to override the profiler at times).

Does this game benefit from using a joystick? I guess this is much more of a button-masher than Mass Effect or Dragon's Age, right?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I just plugged in a xbox controller and it works without setting anything up? The D-pad selects powers, A and X work the attacks Left Stick runs and Right Stick rotates camera.

Edit: So this is for editing RT, LT only, ok cool nevermind.

Is anyone else having trouble with diagonal movement? I know I can just use the camera while running forward but it's kind of annoying in certain situations; when I force the joystick diagonally, my character just starts walking instead of running. Is this supposed to happen?

I played and loved this on the Xbox and when I tried the PC version I was instantly put off by the way you rotated on the spot with the mouse, like spinning with no animation. Does using a pad "fix" this?
