Enable force feedback rumble for Xbox360 Controller

  • A quick guide on how to enable force feedback for this game and others that use DirectInput for Force Feedback rather than XInput, to get force feedback on the Xbox360 and compatible controllers using the same driver.

    The problem

    Euro Truck Simulator 2 has force feedback support, but it simply is not working for many people (myself included).

    I suspect the developers have chosen to do force feedback with the DirectInput method that was used up to DirectX9, rather than using the newer XInput introduced with Vista/DirectX 10+.

    The two methods are not compatible, so if you use an XInput/DirectX10 controller like the Xbox360 controller, there is no force feedback while playing ETS2.

    Download the software

    Fortunately some Japanese modder has created a library that seemlessly maps DirectInput to XInput.

    Go to and download the proper version for your system.

    If you run a 32-bit version of Windows 7, get for Windows 7 (English)
    If you run a 64-bit version of Windows 7, get for 64-bit Windows 7 (English)

    Ditto for Windows Vista and older Windows versions.

    For Windows 8.1 64bit, download the Windows 7 64-bit driver and right-click the installer for compatibility mode.

    You can find out what kind of windows you have by doing the following:

    1. Open System by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
    2. Under System, you can view the system type.

    Make sure you download the english version. The installer is a simple click, it will install itself in the system and you need to take no further action.

    Enable Force Feedback in the game

    In the game, go the main menu with ESCAPE.
    Click the OPTIONS button
    Go to the CONTROLLER page.
    Make sure the 'Force Feedback' button is checked.

    Optionally, you can control the intensity by using the sliders below it.

    You should notice it specifically when driving on non-paved roads, but depending on how sensitive the settings are, you can even notice when your truck passes over lines on the road by a slight rumble. Crashes also result in the controller shaking.

    Und hier das ganze in Deutsch:

    Ein netter japanischer Programmierer hat eine .dll entwickelt, die die Force Feedback Effekte zum DirectInput umlenken.

    Geh auf:

    und zieht Euch dort für Euer System den Treiber

    Bei der 32-bit Version von Windows 7, nehmt die for Windows 7 (English)
    Bei der 64-bit Version von Windows 7, nehmt die for 64-bit Windows 7 (English)

    Selbiges gilt für allen anderen Windows Version.

    In Fall von Windows 8, schnappt Euch die Version von Windows 7, die läuft auch.

    Nach dem Installieren, solltet Ihr die FB Effekte spüren.
    Je nach Einstellung und auch aktivieren nicht vergessen. ;)
