X3: Terran Conflict and X3: Albion Prelude natively support joysticks and gamepads. However, the game will only ever recognize one device at the same time. If you want to use more than one (for example a Joystick and Twin throttles), you will have to use free third-party softwares in the following ways:

For Thrustmaster joysticks there is a so-called T.A.R.G.E.T software, which allows you to configure your controllers. Note that due to a DirectX limitation, you will only be able to map up to 32 buttons.

Please Note: The following tutorial is based on experiences with a PC running Windows 10 (64bit) and using a Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S.

  1. Download and install the required softwares:

  2. Start vjoy and configure it as per the screenshot below:

  3. Start the Universal Joystick Remapper (UJR) and map the axis as shown below:

  4. Afterwards open the buttons tabs and map the buttons as required.

  5. Finally, add the start parameter -ingorejoy 15 to the X3TC.exe (or X3AP.exe, if you're playing X3: Albion Prelude) to disable the continuous signal from the mode switch. Please see this FAQ article for information on how to add the start parameter to the exe file. Alternatively, if you run the Steam version, you can add the parameter using the Steam launch options, which you can enter by right-clicking on the game in your Steam game library, selecting Properties and clicking on the 'Set launch options' button in the General tab.

Editor's Note: This FAQ article is based on a tutorial by users hardcastle and Terre, which you can find here.
