Ipega PG 9083 : Xinput on Windows?
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:57:51 pm »
Hello,

Anyone here tested this tablet gamepad on Windows? Does it support xinput?

I know that there are software workarounds to convert dinput to xinput, but I have the old Ipega and it's a pain.

Thanks!

I have the iPega-9076. I don't know if the 9083 works in the same way or not, so can only share my experiences with my model.

The 9076 supports xInput on windows, but defaults to a PS3 controller. You have to hold down turbo for 3 seconds after connection to switch it to switch it to xInput mode.

The 9076 doesn't support connection to a PC via Bluetooth, however. Bluetooth work when connection to Android devices, but to connect to a PC you need to either use a cable, or the built in 2.4Ghz wireless receiver.

Which ipega gamepad do you have?

I just purchased an ipega PG-9083 from eBay yesterday, so hopefully I'll receive it next week. I'll let you know after I've tested it.
I'm also planning to buy a ipega PG-9023 from a mate of mine on Sunday.

I have the ipega PG-9023, which is the previous tablet gamepad they've made.

Anyway, I've been told on discord that even the PG-9083 doesn't support xinput in BT mode, it does only in USB mode.

Ah ok, I didn't know that.
How come I always see the PG-9023 on YouTube being the primary ipega gamepad controller for Windows tablet users? Every video​ I've ever watched show the input controls of the PG-9023 working perfectly on Windows games, as well as emulators.

Btw, I have PG-9023 now but can't test it until I have a decent Windows PC/laptop or device to test it on.

Well, maybe because it's the only tablet gamepad on the market... Also, there are tools to convert dinput to xinput, it's a pain and you have to setup each game everytime, but it does works. Also, some old games / emulators work with dinput natively.
