Street Fighter V and x360ce no longer working after capcom update

Recommended Posts

I have been successfully using an arcade xtensions controller to play 2 player street fighter v using a combo of vjoy and x360ce.


Last week Capcom dropped support for directinput controllers and told users to use Steam's built in support.

I suspected this would brick my setup but thought since x360ce is using xinput that it might not be affected. But no luck.

I tried seeing if I could get Steam to recognize my two vjoy emulated controllers. When I go to general controller settings it does see them. But when I try to bind enough keys to play the game I see no way to save the config. Also if I go into big picture settings it just says no controller attached.

Does anyone have a similar setup and thought of a solution? Or does anyone have any ideas?

I had not previously heard of ucr. Seems to perform a similar function to x360ce. 

I played around more with it, and it seems like none of my steam games I previously setup with x360ce were working.

I went back into Steam and after some initial trouble managed to get the Steam general controller mapping to work with vjoy which then successfully worked with Street fighter v for 2 player setup.

That was 2 nights ago. I need to go back to my arcade and make sure the setup is still stable in sfv. And then assuming that is stable see if my other steam fighter games work with this setup.


I don't know if this was just an oversight on my part not seeing this as an option previously, or if Steam made some changes to its native directinput controller support that one caused x360ce to stop working but alternatively better supported vjoy directinput natively in Steam.


I'll try to update to let everyone know how it works out.

Sure. It took a little back and forth at first so bear with me as I try to recreate what I did.


I opened general controller support from the main Steam preferences with vjoy running.


Under controllers it detected two "unrecognized gamepads"


I had to basically guess which was player 1 and 2. I think they wound up being reversed.


I believe i checked off all the controller support options but probably I just needed to check generic gamepad.

After that I selected the controller I thought was p1 and then selected define layout.

I made sure I had enough buttons in vjoy on to map at least 4 face buttons and 1 shoulder and 1 trigger.

The part that tripped me up at first I believe was I couldn't map the dpad. I had to map left stick x and y to the joystick. After that I was able to save my profile with the joystick and then do the same for player 2.


Since then all my Steam fighting games have been working without a hitch. Actually better then they had with vjoy and x360ce. My only problem game at this point is Tekken 7. Tekken 7 I believe will only navigate the menus with the dpad not left stick and for the life of me I cant get the dpad to work.


Let me know if you have any other questions.
