GTA Camera Spinning Problem with xbox 360 gamepad Explained

Postby Rodrigo » Wed Nov 14, 2012 12:21 am

When you try to play with a xbox 360 gamepad, the camera starts spinning like crazy.

Sumarizing the problem:
  • GTA DOES have native gamepad support, but:
  • The Character movement is Mapped to axes 0 and 1
  • The Camera movement is Mapped to axes 2 and 3
  • And there is NO WAY TO CHANGE. They really messed up there :P
  • On Mac, the xbox 360 controller L Trigger is the axis 2...
  • The L Trigger all the way up makes GTA "think" that it should rotate the camera to the left...

Since the game have native gamepad support, this is a problem that happens no matter if you have Joystick Mapper or not.

The only thing a ordinary user can do is use another gamepad in this case is try another (non-xbox) gamepad for this game.

Also, You can try this to prevent the game from detecting gamepad and use it with joystick mapper:

- disconnect the gamepad
- launch the game
- Command+Tab out of it
- connect the gamepad
- Go to Joystick Mapper and enable the preset
- go back to the game

this workaround generally works for games with messy built-in gamepad support that doesnt allow you to disable it.

I suspect this may happen with ps4 controllers too, if it does happen, please try the same workaround. :)

Since 1.1.3 looks like you can workaround this easier, as Joystick Mapper now detects joystick reattachments on-the-fly now.

- enable the preset
- disconnect the gamepad
- launch the game and wait until it goes to the title screen (you can skip stuff)
- connect the gamepad

Actually I'd like a GTA preset myself - is there any available?

I had this problem yesterday with portal. My fix is to disconnect the Bluetooth mouse, than the repeatedly shooting stopped. This could perhaps also work for the spinning
