So I tried mapping my Xbox 360 controller to the original Half-Life, and no good. Must I use a third party software to map the keys?

  • Is this for Half-Life, Half-Life: Source, or Half-Life 2, Episode 1? Commented Mar 26, 2013 at 19:06

You cannot do this I think. I recommand you to use JoyToKey. It's a third party software to map keyboard keys on your pad buttons. enter image description here I use it to play to Binding Of Isaac with my Xbox360 gamepad and it works fine. You can find the software here.



Official controller support was added to Half-Life 1 on November 17, 2023 as part of the game's 25th Anniversary Update.
