What works

-starting it
-setting up controller
-make profiles
-to move the mouse arrow, left and right click (for sure only in a wine window)

What does not

-my controllers were detected two times, but this isn't really a problem, because you can hide them wich are to much.

-an Problem with the font of the helptexts, so they are hard to read (click on copy text in the window an paste it into a write-program like kate.

-the autostart function (with wine in that case)

-no rumble-support

Keyboardemulation does only work sometimes:

-I tested with Prey, there it works sometime full, but mostly only partially, when i start the game

-in Steam it doesn't works

-with notepad it didn't work too

-and I tried the Steamversions of Sam and Max 101 and 201, there only the Escapekey had to work, but it didn't

HowTo / Notes

tested it with keyboard test programm

Tested it with a test program called KeyboardTest. It detects input for BIOS Key Code, but not for Windows Key Code. With a physical keyboard both signals are detcted.

And under an real WindowsXP it detects both signals from Xpadder.

According to an information from the Xpadder programmer, I think, that there is one/are some "input-emulation Windows API(s)" missing in Wine, that Xpadder needs for keyboard emulation.
