Play World of WarCraft (WoW) with Xbox 360 Controller

David Nikdel has created a mod that allows you to use the wired PC compatible Xbox 360 controller to play WoW.

The WoW360 Router executable follows a fairly simple concept. Because World of Warcraft does not have native support for game controllers, support must be faked using the available keyboard and mouse inputs.


To install the WoW-360 UI mod package, simply copy the contents of the AddOns/WoW360Interface folder contained in this zip into {your_WoW_folder}/Interface/AddOns/WoW360Interface. You may need to create these folders as they do not exist by default.

To install WoW360Router, just run the included setup.exe. You can uninstall it later via your Add/Remove Programs control panel. it does require the .NET Framework v2.0, so if you don?t have this installed already you will probably be prompted to download it? sorry.

Obviously, if there was an application included, it needs to be running for WoW-360 to work. Just remember to start it up before starting World of Warcraft (it will be installed in your Start menu). When you start up WoW360Router, you may want to check out File->Preferences to see if the settings there match what you?ll be expecting from the controller (look inversion, etc). Also, About->Keymappings is there for your reference, but the instructions in the next section do a better job of explaining the actual game function of these keys (with the mod installed/enabled).

Finally, WoW updates its client (which they assuredly will), this mod may become listed as out of date even though it may still work. If the UI mod isn?t loading, be sure to check your AddOns list before loggins in (located in the lower left corner of the character selection screen) to see if it?s been disabled.

How it Works

The WoW360 Router executable follows a fairly simple concept. Because World of Warcraft does not have native support for game controllers, support must be faked using the available keyboard and mouse inputs. That is just what we do. There?s a bit more logic involved, but essentially, this program just translates the movements and button strokes coming in from the controller into mouse movements and keystrokes. The UI Mod is basically just glue to make all this seem more transparent and less awkward. As you may have guessed/seen, however, some amount of tomfollery cannot be avoided, resulting in a less-than-optimal solution, but one which I still think is fun, if not alltogether practical. The intention of this program is not to replace the Blizzard UI, nor is it really to provide a complete alternate playstyle. It was created one weekend as a little gee-wiz program and nothing more. The only reason I bothered to polish it as much as I have is because a few other people have expressed interest in using it and I?m anal-retentive like that. Hopefully, if this catches on, it will give Blizzard an incentive to provide some form of native support which ?one would hope? would be less hackish? but I wouldn?t hold my breath. Anyway, use it, enjoy it, hate it, whatever. Feel free to email or flame me, I?d love to hear from users, but don?t expect any sort of regular updates. I already have another pet project I?m itching to move on to.
