  • reWASD doesn't seem to create virtual controller

    Hi, after checking out the trial of the software I was really impressed with the UI and how many options there were so I decided to buy it.
    However after trying out the software some more with all of the additional features I noticed that it wasn't creating a virtual controller.
    I browsed some of the other topics of other members that had this issue and I saw that they had "Virtual Controller for reWASD" but I only have "Virtual input for reWASD"

    I have tried reinstalling the software, restarting the pc, making sure remap on startup is enabled but nothing seems to work.
    I tried remapping from kb+m to controller and the other way around but the virtual controller is never created so other games don't detect it.
    I would love to get some further assistance with this because I feel like I've tried everything at this point, I even used the command prompt to manually uninstall the reWASD service and then installed again.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your question.

    To create a virtual controller need to press the "Apply" button after all mappings were set. So, in your case, your group the mouse and keyboard into the group (to detect devices correctly, like the keyboard as a keyboard, mouse as a mouse you may use detect device option), select the PC4 remote play config, apply it.
    What happens when you press the button? Any sounds? Also, what appears in joy.cpl after config applying? As you create a virtual DS4 controller you may see Wireless Controller appeared in joy.cp service.
    The "Virtual Controller for reWASD" is when an Xbox 360 virtual controller is created.
    Don't worry! Be Happy!

      Using the ps4 remote play config seems to show that the wireless controller appears in joy.cpl, so I'm most likely doing something wrong when I'm creating the configs.
      however in-game, the ps4 remote play still doesn't work, the game doesn't detect the joypad.
      I'm not really sure how the ps4 remote play config differs from what I did but I would love some feedback on what I'm doing wrong.

      So basically, my goal is to emulate an xbox/ps4 controller on pc without actually using a controller.
      What I did was:
      1. Group kb and mouse together after making sure they're the correct device after checking with detect device.
      2. Create a new profile and in the kb+m section, map all the controller keys to the keyboard and mouse keys with the unbind setting

ID:	218691I didn't touch the gamepad section because I'm not using the gamepad to make kb+m commands.
      when I do this, the wireless device does appear in joy.cpl, but the game still doesn't detect the virtual controller even after restarting.
      I also don't understand why when I select the xbox 360 virtual controller instead of the ps4 one, I still don't see the "virtual 360 for reWASD" in devices list.

        Also something I've noticed is that when I apply the profile and the software warns me that I will lose control of my mouse when I will apply the profile,
        I still have control over the mouse, so maybe that's part of the problem?

          Hello!

          It may be a chance that the device initialization is not completed correctly. Please follow these steps:

          1. Ungroup the Keyboard and Mouse, so all the devices are shown separately in the bottom left corner of the main window.
          2. Use Detection mode to find the correct Keyboard and Mouse. If you press the keyboard button but see mouse in reWASD, then you will need to re-initialize it (from the context menu of an active device)
          3. After you are sure about all the devices, please group Mouse and Keyboard and try to Apply your config and test it in joy.cpl or in a game

            This did the trick, after reinitializing and restarting it worked for the first time and I lost control of the mouse and the game was able to detect it!
            Thank you for taking the time to help me solve this
