PS4 Controller on PC

sony ps4 controller

I was trying to play my new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare game on my PC with my old ps2 dual shock usb controller using the method I had described in my Emulate an Xbox 360 Controller post. However being that method is about 4 years old it wasn’t working for me with this new game. I do however have an extra PS4 controller lying around so I decided to see if I could get it to work on my PC.

It turns out you can, and it’s pretty easy and works great.

My PC is running Windows 7 64bit, other versions should work very similarly but I have not tested them.

Here are the steps I did to get my PS4 controller working on my PC.

  1. Download and Install the latest Xbox 360 Controller driver on your computer.
  2. Go to the DS4Tool  and download version 1.2.2, also download
  3. Extract the contents of both zip files to the same directory and run the file in  DS4Tool 1.2.2 > Virtual Bus Driver > ScpDriver.exe. This will install another driver the ps4 controller will use to emulate an Xbox controller.
  4. Plug your PS4 controller into your PC with a usb cable. You can do this with a Bluetooth adapter but I have not tried it.
  5. Now run the file in DS4Tool 1.2.2 > ScpServer.exe, leave this program running while you play your game, it sends the commands to windows for whatever buttons you push.
  6. Test your buttons using the XInputTest.exe file. You don’t need to keep it running it’s just for testing.
  7. Enjoy your game with your PS4 controller.
