    Hello, after reading this thread, I decided to try my luck and play around with the files.
    I succesfully managed to recreate the xbox controls for Pirates of the Carribean very closely using the manual from my old game and init_xbox.c.
    I simply changed the default PC keyboard controls to something that isn't a total fuck up and used xpadder to map it to my x360 controller.
    Map zoom in ship battles is moved to L1 + R1, since there are no black/white buttons.
    Running is on R1. As far as I remember, there was no key for running on xbox and you ran all the time - so if you don't like it, open init_pc.c, search for "ChrRun" and change "KEY_R" to "KEY_W".

    I don't have access to a xbox atm, so there may be a few differences. If you got improvements or find wrong or missing keys, please let me know.

    How to use it?
    1. Download the .zip
    2. Make a backup of <potc>\PROGRAM\CONTROLS\init_pc.c
    3. Replace the old init_pc.c with the downloaded one
    4. Get xpadder if you don't already have it, set it up it and use potc.xpadderprofile
    5. Start the game, go to controls options and restore them to default (this will load the new control file)

    Note: There were some problems with xpadder not recognizing my german keyboard, and thus, a key was wrong (y and z are swapped on a german keyboard). I avoided it by using 'I' for the Y button, but if you have problems with missing keys, check for this kind of thing first.

    This should be uploaded somewhere where people can easily find it exists.

    Wait, is this for PotC or CoAS? It's on the CoAS forum. :confused:

    It's PotC. This was the only thread regarding this topic I was able to find, so I decided to share it here. Sorry for posting in the wrong forum.
    But hey, I guess you could use this method in CoAS too? I have no idea, since I've never played it and don't own it, but if it's a direct descendant of PotC, that should be quite possible.

    Thanks for confirming. I have made this a separate thread and stickied it on the Technical Help | PiratesAhoy! forum so it should remain visible.
