With the Tom Clancy’s Humble Bundle going on as of now, many have asked me how’d you get the Xbox One controller to work with it correctly cause if you haven’t already tried. Buttons are swapped and right analog stick doesn't work, etc.. Well, you’re in luck; I have a quick fix that sure will get you up and running Splinter Cell: Conviction(PC) with the Xbox One Controller in no time. Without further ado, lets dive into it.

Before we start these are the requirements:

  • Xbox One controller obviously, or any third party controller that’s PC compatible cause this tutorial will fix those too.
  • Xbox One Controller for Windows drivers installed
  • Uplay account
  • Splinter Conviction with all of its patches installed.
  • X360ce(32-bit) you can get it here:  http://www.x360ce.com/
  • Winrar or 7-zip *Optional*

  • UPDATE-02/05/2019: The current build of X360ce(3.2.10.82) apparently may not be working properly. If you get to the point where “Default Settings for Most Popular Controllers” tab is blank and/or still experiencing unusual controller behaviors. You'll  have to use an earlier build of X360ce(version 3.2.8.76 to be exact).  I've uploaded  a copy of X360ce 3.2.8.76 to DropBox Cheers!!


    Once you have everything downloaded and ready to go. The first thing you want to do is extract X360ce.zip. Once extracted, what you want to do is move the X360ce.exe to your Splinter Cell: Conviction game directory where the games exe is located. The games exe should be located within the src\system\ directory. If you see Conviction_game or Conviction_game.exe, you're in the correct directory.
    For example the default path to the games exe would be:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Splinter Cell Conviction\src\system\

    splinter Cell Conviction game propertiesFinding Your Splinter Cell Conviction install directory

    If you don’t know where your game is installed, just head over to your UPlay and open Splinter cell Conviction extended menu and head over to game properties then Local Files the directory will be shown there. Simply hit the Open Folder button and you shall be taken there.

    Once copied over simply right click on x360ce.exe and run it as administrator. Allow it to search Automatically for settings, when it asks if you want to create a Xinput1_3.dll file simply hit the Create Button, if there’s an exception error message just hit continue. Now you to have to close X360ce.exe and run it again as administrator.

    Now hit the controller one tab you should see an Xbox 360 controller, verify that your controller is working properly by hitting/clicking buttons and a green dot will light up on the image corresponding to which button you clicked.

    Once verified working head over to the Controller Settings tab, you should notice that your controller/Device is selected on the top left corner and the Program/Game exe on its right. Now what you want to do is head over to “Default Settings for Most Popular Controllers” tab and pick Controller (Xbox 360 wireless receiver for Windows) from the list. Then hit Load ,afterwards hit Yes when it asks "load Preset Setting?"

    Once successfully saved, delete the x360ce.exe boot game and enjoy Splinter Cell Conviction with your Xbox One Controller (^.^) hope this help anyone having trouble playing Splinter Cell Conviction with the Xbox One Controller or any other controller.
