GTA: San Andreas, in need of usb controller profile

I bought GTA: SA for my PC (and have Hitman: Blood Money on the way), and since I cannot play games on a keyboard, I have a Logitech USB Dual Action game pad. And since I do not have the patience to attempt to program in half a blue million keyboard commands into the controller; does anyone have an exported profile for the controller set for use with San Andreas?

Looks as though you may have to bite the bullet and use the ol keyboard and mouse like I myself have done. Makes controling vehicles a bit more challenging but walking and dispatching a bit more easyer.

I'm getting the hang of some of it with the keyboard, but I'd still rather play it with a controller. I love cheat codes, too. "fullclip" and "hesoyam" are fun. As are "buffmeup", "stinglikeabee" and "professionalskit".

I prefer a combination of mouse/keyboard while on foot, and a game pad (PS2 dualshock2 through a USB adaptor) while in vehicles.

Why would I need a keyboard emulator when my laptop has... a keyboard?

That has to be the best way to play. However, my weapon of choice would be an XBOX controller modded into a USB controller.

This is a sig of some nature.

Ah. The Logitech controller I have has software with it does that, but San Andreas has so many damn commands, it's neigh pointless to use for it.

This is essentially what it looks like:

You can get pretty much all essential commands on the gamepad for average play. Remember that the driving controls and the walking controls will never be used simultaneously and for things like menu options, you'd probably want to use the mouse anyway. I mean, think about it--the sticks cover walking/driving and camera, and you have jump, enter car/building, fire, lock-on, yes/no, pause if you want it on the controller...the other commands aren't things you'll need more than once an hour (or week, in the instance of the trip-skip button.) Also, unless you plan on using the D-Pad for walking (you wouldn't want to) a decent keyboard emulator will let you put a button on each direction. That makes ten buttons, not counting those in the middle (since they might be things you wouldn't want to reassign, I don't recognize that controller in particular.

Mapping gamepads on a PC is an art I spent quite a few hours honing in games not natively supporting them. You realize eventually that the controller has pretty much all the options you need for anything (barring non-console genres like RTSs or MMORPGs) you want to do more than once a game in any given PC game.

This is the actual controller that I've got:



The software for it looks just the same.

The L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons (or rather, their equivalent), are buttons I hardly ever used in any PS/PS2 game. Using them would actually take quite a bit of getting used to. And then there's remembering what button I assigned to do what. That's the most annoying part, just figuring out what button on the controller is more apt for x action in gameplay.

I use a Sony PSONE controller on my pc but its used exclusively for emulators. A purpose it serves quite well. I have yet to come across a PC game I would want to use a gamepad for.

I simply use keyboard controller while playing this game. when you will download this game all the keys and their purposes are mentioned there. Just go through once before starting and you will adopt it easily. Some essential keys are up and down arrow that you have to press it with shift to move the fighter left to back direction and vice versa.
