What's the difference between XInput and DirectInput®?
The XInput mode lets you play the majority of latest games; it simulates a controller of the Xbox 360® and Xbox One®. The DirectInput® mode lets you play all older and some newer games; the Speedlink driver operates in this mode. To find out which mode you have to choose for which game, please consult the manual that accompanied the game, ask the publisher or try both modes to establish which works the best.
Is the gamepad compatible with Steam®?
Yes, both modes can be used with Steam®.
How do I switch modes, and which modes are available?
XInput and DirectInput® modes are supported. To switch between the two, keep the large button in the centre of the gamepad held depressed for around 3 seconds. Mode1: The Xbox 360 controller will simulate XInput (the small red LED beneath the Turbo button will glow) for games that specifically support this mode. Mode2: A special driver (latest driver available from www.speedlink.com) supports DirectInput® (the small red LED beneath the Turbo button will not be glowing) and is supported by many of the latest PC games.
Where can I find drivers for this product?
Download the driver from www.speedlink.com to install the software. Always use the latest driver version.
Why has my left-hand analog stick/D-pad stopped working?
Press the SPEEDLINK button in DirectInput mode to toggle between the two D-pad modes. If the upper two LEDs do not light up, coolie hat mode is active. This means that the D-pad and left-hand analog stick have swapped functions.
How do I exit standby mode?
After 5 minutes of inactivity, the gamepad will switch to standby mode automatically (after 30 seconds if there is no wireless connection) to save power. Press the SPEEDLINK button to reactivate the gamepad.
How do I use this gamepad to play games that only support mice or keyboards as input devices?
You can only do this with special additional software. These programmes are available as freeware versions and easy to find on the Internet.
Why can’t the trigger buttons (R2 and L2) be pressed at the same time?
The signals of these two buttons are on the same axis, so they cancel each other out if pressed simultaneously. This offers the best form of control in many games. Alternatively, configure the button mapping in the game so you don’t need to press both trigger buttons at the same time.
My gamepad, joystick or racing wheel has stopped working.
