Xbox Dance Pads¶ When using a known dance pad, jstest will report 6 axes and 14 buttons. For dance style pads (like the redoctane pad) several changes have been made. The old driver would map the d-pad to axes, resulting in the driver being unable to report when the user was pressing both left+right or up+down, making DDR style games unplayable. I am having this issue where when I plug in my PS4 controller into my PC (Windows 10), on the 'Devices and Printers' page, the PS4 controller shows up as a speaker icon and not a game controller icon. When I go into its properties and click on the Hardware tab, the PS4 controller is missing the 'HID-compliant game controller' device function.
Step 1: First we need to disable driver signatures on windows 8, follow the guide posted below or simply
While holding shift down, select Restart > Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart > Select option 7: Disable driver signature enforcement
or follow this guide
Step 2: Download XBCD 0.2.7
Step 3: Make sure you run, and install all these programs AS ADMINISTRATOR, it's very important.
Install XBCD 0.2.7 As Administrator (say yes to prompts)
Restart computer (may not be required at this point)
Step 4: Right click bottom right windows icon or hit Windows Key + X > Go to Device Manager
Step 5: At bottom of the list you should see 'Xbox 360 Peripherals', expand the list and you should see 'Xbox 360 Controller for Windows' (if you don't see it plug in your pad)
Right click > Update Driver Software > Browse my Computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer > Have Disk > Browse > Navigate to C:Program Files (x86)XBCDDriver (may be different if you changed install directory), follow warning prompts installing anyway.
It will ask you to restart. (Restart)
Step 6: AS ADMINISTRATOR (right click > run as admin) > Start XBCD Setup Utility (from start menu or XBCD directory)
Either download this setting file > Click 'Open' and navigate to where ever it is located, then save settings. Or manually set them.
To manually set them there will be a D-Pad box, change these from POV, to buttons. I used buttons 12, 13, 14, 15. Then save.
Step 7: Set buttons in stepmania. this should be simple but make sure you don't overwrite the left settings, there are blank alternate key spaces you can use, Bind Left, Right, Up, Down, Start, and Back.
Everything should work now.
