Thumbs up PsychoPad - xbox 360 controller GUI unofficial patch (updated 18.07.2012)

Want to get rid of annoying keyboard and mouse buttons in-game and want to see Xbox 360 controller buttons?
Or you dont have xbxo 360 controller and simply want your numeric gamepad buttons appear instead of keyboard and mouse?

Than this patch for you!

Screenshots can tell more than 1000 words:

Want this? Get it!

Download (outdated look for newer version below):
OK guys, since you are so impatient, i did a LITE version of patch which should work just double fine.
All advanced things (such as xbox 360 controller support for previous v1.04 of game, customizable configs, DI FFD, detection of all stuff, etc) was removed, and only profile and icon patching was left.
Download and enjoy, and dont forget to report about noticed bugs
http://voodooman.gta-action.ru/downl...stallv1.0b.rar

Usage is pretty simple - run installer, select Psychonauts folder, install, enjoy. If you will create new profie, you will need to reapply patch, just run installed PsychoPadLite.exe from Psychonauts folder and enjoy updated profiles with proper x 360 controller ui))

Note: game has xbox original buttons for UI, but no LB and RB, ugly edges because of DXT compression and annoying animation - this was fixed and included both in lite and full versions

Meanwhile ill keep working on full version...

Im not quite finished this and need more Three-headed monkeys... i mean testers in my secret laboratory, to put my experiments on, before i can go with public release of full version.
Have 2 extra monkey heads?
Have Xinput-class gamepad or normal Dinput pad?
Finished game and have saves in different points of games?
You are not a lame-monkey and know how to disable UAC and what is false positive?
Then opt-in!

Update (Jun 18 2012):

Good news, everyone!
PsyhoPad Lite updated to v1.1

v1.1 Highlights:

+Removed GUI to fix misleading out of sync messages about patching state that could stay forever despite patching already finished
+Added external config files "PsychoIco.ini" and "PsychoMap.ini" for tweaking of bindings prior patching
+Minor cosmetic and logic improvements such as indication of current step of patching

Download latest version (v1.1) here:

I assume the download link is missing on purpose since it's a "private" beta.

I'm pretty o.k. with the Steam build as is, except for the missing "button" artwork, the default settings work perfectly fine with my Xbox 360 gamepad (that was different with the old 1.04 build). So I'm not completely eager to become one of the chosen testers.

Did you personally test it with the gog/retail version 1.04 only or the enhanced Steam version?
Does it affect achievements in any way?
Does it only modify the artwork or are there other changes and modifications?


An a slightly unrelated topic:
Does anyone know if the new Steam build supports native Xinput rumble or DirectInput style ForceFeedback only?

I'm asking, because rumble is actually working perfectly with my Xbox 360 pad and the latest Steam-Psychonauts but I'm also using the unofficial ForceFeedback drivers for the Xbox 360 controller (which means I get rumble with both DirectInput as well as Xinput games).

If there is no official Xinput rumble support, I can't recommend these drivers highly enough:
http://www.katch.ne.jp/~morii/driver/xi/index.html

Once installed, the official Microsoft Xinput controller works perfectly with all types of games and after years of using them I haven't found a single side effect.
Unlike other DirectInput for Xinput device drivers (like XBCD) it doesn't subtract any features but only adds them.

I'm not sure about rumble, but I think it works properly, (I'm using the default drivers)

example: using the dowsing rod, the controller will sporadically heavy rumble, increasing in intensity as you near an arrowhead, and once you almost standing over a large arrowhead, then it switches to a constant light rumble.

Yes, a private beta, dont want messy unfinished code to be on public until its cleaned and finished.

These drivers included in Psychopad and automaticly installed.

Psychopad - is automated patch that makes all the job for you, it automaticly detects version of game, os and even bits of os, installs FFD XI driver (however i notticed that FFD never worked in old 1.04 even with this driver) in addition to official Xinput drivers, installs GFX files, detects and modifies config files.
Since i started it week before patch released, its main goal was to bring proper Xbox 350 controller support into psychonauts, so LT and RT worked like a charm in old 1.04 retail and gog and pre-update steam versions.
Update screwed half of my work when it was nearly complete, it pushed me back to redesign it a little and make it compatibe both with 1.04 and 1.05 versions both retail and steam.
And yes i have 3 versions (actually 4, have english and russian retail copies) and tested them all, this do not affect achievement.

And yes Latest update brough rumble to 360 controller, however im not sure if its native xinput or dinput rumble which works now because of FFD driver by Morri which i have installed.

Excellent, that means they added proper Xinput support ... really brilliant. If true, there is no need for the patch to install FF drivers (if they don't work anyways in 1.04 and are not needed in the current Steamworks build).

But not to be mistaken, I'm also using the "default drivers" (which are simply missing ForceFeedback drivers) and in addition I'm using the excellent FF drivers mentioned above which only kick in if a game uses the otherwise unsupported DirectInput ForceFeedback instead of XInput Rumble.

Can you be more specific please?
What os do you have?
UAC disabled or enabled?
Some crappy antivirus blocked bat script maybe?
Did you have profile created before installation?
Are you sure YOU SELECTED EXACTLY PSYCHONAUTS FOLDER in installer?
Are you sure steam not redownloaded modded files for some reason (it can do this crap sometime!)?

Go to psychonauts folder and look if there are 2 files exist: install.dll and PsychoPadLite.exe
If both exist, that you selected right folder, now just run PsychoPadLite.exe to re-apply patch and tell me everything you saw on screen during patching.
There must be at least 3 pop-up, 1st one with big progress bar and Psychopad Installer title, 2nd and 3rd with little progress bar and should say something like "Patching prifles\icons, please wait" and it should work a minute or two in normal case.

Hi,

Does this version work with the 1.04 version (retail)? I tried it and the dialogs show the correct icons, but the game seems to be confused with the red and green buttons on the controller, and the start button does not work. On my Steam version there are no issues.
