I remember playing Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb on Xbox and really enjoying it but sold that console long ago so I was really glad to see it here for PC on GOG. Question: Does the game have any controller support? I like playing games like this using my Xbox 360 controller. It's worked on most of the older games I've tried but I wanted to know if anyone can confirm if it works with Emperor's Tomb before I purchase the game. Playing it with a mouse and keyboard just wouldn't be the same. Thanks!

Just to bring this to your attention, in case you hadn't seen it, someone posted a guide to programming the game to work with a 360 controller like it did on the original X-Box.

Thanks! I hadn't seen that post yet. :)
I got the game today and I've been trying to fix it up myself. I've almost got it done. The bad thing about it though, is that I have no idea what IDs the L2, R2 and DPad have.

I fixed the broken camera on the Right Stick, which was pretty annoying.

If anyone wants to play around with this, I've put up my progress for today. I tried making the controls the least awkward as possible, but without the DPad and the missing bottom triggers it's going to be a bit annoying.

I am also updating the UI strings.

I made the bindings file a bit more readable.

Setbind is the main default key, then addbind can be used to assign the same function to other keys, more or less, I'm a bit sleepy now.

I found this thread while trying to get the Windows version of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb (IJET) as close as possible to full gamepad compatibility/support without using external software like Xpadder, Controller Companion, Joy2Key, Pinnacle Game Profiler, etc.

I took SumoX's great work here as a starting point, as well as the original button layout for both the Xbox and PS2 editions of the game. I also applied Herro_kitty's use of AXIS_Z for the LT and RT triggers, which left us with 2 less buttons to bind externally.

All that remained was the pesky D-Pad that IJET refuses to acknowledge. Then it hit me: do we really need it at all? The game only uses it to access Indy's Inventory, so I moved that to other buttons. I believe my proposed binding solution results in a confortable controller layout for both new and experienced players of this game. This has been tested with an Xbox 360 gamepad in both the CD and GOG versions of the game.

Just like SumoX's version, you need to open the binds.cfg file with a text editor such as Notepad. It's located in the GameData\indy folder inside your Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb\GameData\indy - C:\GOG Games\Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb\GameData\indy or wherever you installed it).

Once you open binds.cfg, scroll down until you find the second set of bindings which begin with setbind 1. Delete all setbind 1 and addbind 1 entries in the file, then copy the following code, paste it where the one you erased was, save and close the file.

setbind 1 COMMAND_TOGGLERUN KEYBOARD 0 KEY_LMENU 0.0 1.0 1.0

The resulting control scheme inside the game will be as follows

Left Thumbstick: Move Indy/Navigate Menus
Right Thumbstick: Camera View/Climb Rope
A: Primary Attack/Menu Select
B: Jump/Menu Back
X: Secondary Attack/Menu Delete
Y: Action/Use/Interact/Pull Out Appropriate Tool (Context Sensitive)
LB: Look Mode/Camera Reset/Roll/Wall Peek Left
RB: Guard Mode/Focus on Enemy/Wall Peek Right
LT: Inventory Select/Draw or Holster Weapon/Last Item Used
RT: Reload Ammo
Select: Cycle Inventory
Start: Pause/Menu
D-Pad: Null

I'm also modifying the Tips.txt file inside GameData\indy\gameinfo so that the game's popup tutorial tips show the buttons like the Xbox version instead of keyboard commands I will post it when I finish testing it.

As a way to reward my efforts, I would appreciate anybody who can show me how I can edit items on the Main Menu. I'd like to change the "Press Enter" phrase there so it reads "Press Enter", as well as modify the Gamesave instructions in the Load Game screen.
how does the vine/rope swinging/climbing work with this?

with xpadder'd d-pad it can be used to climb up and down, swinging on left stick...

never played the console versions...

(if there is interest in IJET in Widescreen, take a look at my posts in those threads...)
Full xbox360 controller support FIX + Fixed Tips RUSSIAN .rar</span>
Full xbox360 controller support FIX + Fixed Tips ENGLISH .rar</span>

This FIX for xbox360 controller and compatible with xbox360 - i.e. xinput controllers (other xinput controllers can also work)
All buttons work (D-Pad now works in the game menu and in the game itself)
I'm also changed the popup tutorial tips show the xbox360 buttons (TEXT ONLY - Together with keyboard commands)

Copy all content from archive in the game folder and overwrite.
Start the game, in the control settings turn on the gamepad (buttons do not reassign!!!)
Now you can play on the gamepad! The only thing is no vibration.

The button layout corresponds to the PS2 version</span> of the game with minor changes:

Left Thumbstick: Move Indy
Right Thumbstick: Camera View/Climb Rope
A: Primary Attack/Menu Select
B: Jump/Menu Back
X: Secondary Attack/Menu Delete
Y: Action/Use/Interact/Pull Out Appropriate Tool (Context Sensitive)
LB: Look Mode/Camera Reset/Roll/Wall Peek Left
RB: Guard Mode/Focus on Enemy/Wall Peek Right
LT: Walk
RT: Reload Ammo
Select: Last Item Used/Drop Item
Start: Pause/Menu/"Enter"
D-Pad: Navigate Menus, Inventory Select, Draw Weapon/Last Item Used (D-Pad Up), Holster Weapon/Drop Item (D-Pad Down)

+ Widescreen Fix (IndianaJones_EmperorsTomb.7z)</span>
Copy all content from this archive - IndianaJones_EmperorsTomb.7z in the game folder(GameData\bin\), depending on the desired resolution.
