Features and Requirements for DS4 Windows

Once you install the software and connect your DS4/DS5 controller with it, the program will convert the working of the “real gamepad” into a virtual/emulated pad. When that happens, you can customize the controller as per your will and wish.

What’s the benefit? You may ask! Well, doing this will allow you to:
Use your PlayStation controllers to play any PC game you want.
Use the DS4/DS5 controllers in games where only Xbox controllers are accepted.

Keeping in mind that many PC games do not support the PlayStation controllers, DS4Windows can trick the PC into considering that it’s the Xbox controller via virtual gamepad.

DS4Win, on the other hand, is completely customizable. You can add multiple effects on your controllers, keyboards, mice, and joysticks, without any hassle.

Not only that, but you can also remap the configuration of controllers. Adding special effects, tweaking the behavior of the special keys, and customizing lightbars is also possible.

Converting a DualShock 4/DualSense 5 controller into X360 input to help gamers enjoy playing games with rumble.
