How to Play Mega Man X: Corrupted with a Controller

It’s probably safe to say that most of us visiting this website are fans of playing games on our computers. You’re also likely to be more familiar with your arrow and W, A, S, D keys for controlling characters in games. This, as we all know, can be cumbersome for games specifically designed to be played with a real controller! Mega Man X: Corrupted is a prime example of a game you’ll want to control as if it were from a typical console.

In this article, I’m going to prepare you to use a real controller when playing games on your computer. This will allow you to escape the restrictions of your mouse and keyboard and have a more enjoyable gaming experience.

Do you already own a gaming controller?

Let me first say just how flexible we can be when it comes to choosing a controller for gaming on your PC. You’ll be surprised in all of your options. Do you already own an Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or Nintendo GameCube/Wii controller laying around the house? There may be no point in buying one, if you would prefer to use one of your existing controllers.

How to Setup an Existing Controller

If you have already have a controller, and you would like to use it, first do some research. A quick Google search can provide you with some good examples depending on your controller.

The above list only scratches the surface in using an existing controller.

Where to Buy a Game Controller

If you don’t already have a game controller, there are some great options online that can send your new game controller right to your door in no time at all.

Our personal recommendation is to jump over to Amazon and purchase a console game controller like Xbox, Playstation, etc. and then configure it using the guides we mentioned earlier. There are some “only USB” controllers there as well, which would work perfectly for any PC games. These controllers are typically going to provide a much better gaming experience.

Here are four of the top-selling controllers that you can purchase from Amazon. We highly recommend you pick one up if you don’t already have one. Feel free to browse around their site different styles.

Wanting a USB Classic SNES Controller?

If you’re seeking a classic SNES to enjoy Mega Man X: Corrupted as you enjoyed past Mega Man X games on the Super Nintendo, check out this one. It will work on both Windows and Macs systems.


How to Make it Work

Now that you have a controller, you must be wondering, “how in the world can I make this work for a game that is meant to use a keyboard?” For some games, the controller may already work just fine. For other games (including Mega Man X: Corrupted), you will need a little extra help.

The answer is with “controller mapping” software. This kind of program will map buttons from your game pad to specific buttons on a keyboard, making it possible to play games immediately There’s a lot of options out there, but we’ve done the homework for you and will provide you with the most popular ones. Of course, if you are aware of others that you recommend, please refer it to us and we’ll consider including it to this list.

Each of these are different, but are worth looking into.

With your new setup, you’ll be ready when Mega Man X: Corrupted is released!

    will mmx corrupted beta or full game be released in first half of 2014 let alone 2014? its already been going on foreverrrr

    • Hi there! Thanks for your question. This is not a funded project, so things will take time as everything is being made by people who are doing this in their free time.

      And to answer your question, a beta test will be released sometime this year.

      • And where’s the beta test?

  • Pwndahbear

    Is it possible to play this on a snes controller instead of a xbox/ps controller?

    • That’s a terrific question, and the answer is yes! You can get classic SNES controllers that connect also through USB. This means you can also play Mega Man X: Corrupted from a Windows machine as well as Mac on a Super Nintendo game pad. 🙂

      I’ve edited the article above and included a link to where you can purchase one online (only $6 currently). Enjoy!

      • Pwndahbear

        Thanks for the quick reply! 🙂

  • Christian Pearse

    Is there an expected time for beta to release, more specific than sometime this year :>

  • treos

    guess, if i can, i’ll just reconfigure the control layout as i would a snes emulator -_- flash game being made as if it were a console game, nice. whatever, i’ve dealt with more annoying things before, just waiting to actually play it is all…

    • That is my plan as well. I just ordered the SNES USB controller to see how well it works.

  • Matt Rowser

    is there a date youre planning to be the release date other than just this year?

    • Unfortunately, the full release date is still to be determined. We’ll definitely keep you in the loop when we have more information.

  • Gabriel Ribeiro

    Did you made an option to change button config?

    • Pwndahbear

      There is a button config within the game. Check “JKB games” on facebook with a video demonstrating that.

  • Superstar99999

    There can be a good idea to use a Wii U Gamepad for that kind of game, so far, 2 megaman X games are now on the Wii U. Let’s hope the 3rd one is out.


      mmx2 is on wii u?


    “How to Play Mega Man X: Corrupted with a Controller” Suggesting you can play it at all.. the creator of this is dick torturing millions of fans with his awesome creation not letting us play a beta even at least.. haven’t we been tortured enough by capcom releasing megaman game footage and then canceling them time after time?

    • Have faith, my friend.

      • ABCDE Z

        Fuck faith what do you know? Your just leeching off this games publicity I’m making my own game JKB Is a prick spoken to them multiple times

        • Dear troll, I would like to correct you that I actually enjoy both web design and have an interest in the project. 🙂
          And best of luck with your own game. As you likely do not understand, it could take years before you finish, which could result in people trolling you. 😉

          • ABCDE Z

            I’m not a troll but you are with the sarcastic smile bs yeah you designed your own site off a game you have nothing to do with creating and you have ads on it meaning your making money off someone else’s creation unless you used one of those free site creators supported by ads

          • The last time I checked, there’s nothing wrong with making a fan site. 🙂

          • Sophia blacklover

            David dear continue with your game!!!

          • Sorry for the lack of updates on the website. I will try and get some articles going again.

            Also, I am not the one creating the game, I just manage this fansite. 🙂

          • Sophia blacklover

            Idiot, spend your time talkin bullshits

  • Kevin O.

    I would hope this game could be installed on Wii Homebrew. It looks AMAZING.
