Installation

InputMapper Version
(Recommended)

1. Download, install Input Mapper in a folder of your choosing and launch it. Completely free. Download link: InputMapper
2. Choose the Input.settings you like most and extract it in your Documents/The Witcher 3 folder and overwrite
3. Extract the Input Mapper profiles in : C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\InputMapper\Profiles  - Make sure you have "Show Hidden Files" checked
4: Load the profile you prefer - See picture for help
5. Play the game and enjoy

After the frist time all you need to do is start InputMapper and then the game.

There are two Input Mapper profiles, one with R2 like combo key and, the one I use, with L2 combo key. Is up to you choose the one you like most.

P.S.
The swipe macros might be a little off. It depends on the sensitivity of the pad. If you run in this problem adjust the sensitivity as you see fit. It really is a subjective setting - See Pictures for help

Xpadder Version

1. Download and install Xpadder, don't launch it yet. Buy it form here: Xpadder or get it elsewhere at your own risk
2. Extract input.setting from the "Document-The Witcher 3 Directory" folder into your Documents/The Witcher 3 folder and overwrite
3. Extract the xpadder profile and controller profile in the profile's folder you chose when installing Xpadder (usually Install folder or Documents)
4. Extract the contenent of the "witcher3.exe Directory" folder into GAMEDIR\The Witcher 3\bin\x64 - Overwrite if needed (Maybe make a back-up)
5. Start Xpadder and load the profiles - See picture for help
6. Play the game and enjoy

After the frist time all you need to do is start Xpadder and then the game.

Disable control scheme popup
(HIghly recommended)(optional)

This will solve some very annoying issues (e.g. getting off the horse, inventory and potions UI and more.)

1. Open your The witcher 3\bin\config\base folder
2. Open hidden.ini with notepad and change "LockControlScheme=0" to "LockControlScheme=2"
3. Save and exit

Since patch 1.05 you can turn off Control Hints under Options > Video > HUD Configuration. But I advise to lock the scheme anyway, is more efficient

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uninstallation

Just delete the modded input.settings in your Documents/The Witcher 3 folder and play without InputMapper or Xpadder
