MCGamepad is a small Forge mod that uses the LWJGL JInput bindings to provide gamepad controls to Minecraft. Currently the mod only correctly XInput-like controllers (including those provided by the ScpServer PS3 and PS4 bluetooth controller interface on Windows) and has no button reconfiguration options. The mod is being developed for the Forge beta for 1.8. Forge for 1.8 is required.
You can use the mod on any platform that JInput has modules for, but the mod is only tested for Windows. Future versions may alternatively use an XInput binding for rumble support on Windows.
- Left stick to move, Right Stick to look. Looking is accelerated (acceleration curve will be configurable in future versions).

- B – Escape
- LT+A – Right Click (for splitting stacks in inventory)
- It is currently not possible to open horse inventories via the controller while riding them. Use the PC controls to do this.
- Not possible to drag sliders in GUIs with controller
- Not possible to click on list items in GUIs with controller (notably the World Select). Please use the mouse to select them for now.
- The viewmodel flickers a lot when panning the view.
- There may be some issues with mounted entities.
- The controller state is not zeroed out on startup and may present various issues i.e. uncloseable main menu, cursor locked to top left corner. Workaround: press all buttons and manipulate all analogs at the main menu.
