  • Why is my controller not working?

    December 06, 2019

    Rainway emulates an Xbox 360 controller when using a controller on the client or virtual gamepad. If the game you’re streaming doesn’t have support for Xbox 360 (xinput) controllers, the client’s controller won’t work. An alternative for using a controller on any game is to use a program called JoyToKey. It emulates your controller as keyboard inputs, so you can use a controller on every game you own.
