  • There are numerous controllers and gamepads on the market, we do not guarantee that every single one could be connected to Nox. (Betop controller has passed our test, which might be one of your choices) Write to [email protected] if you would like to report controllers that are not working.
  • Some games do not support controller operation. In such case, you could try map your controller using this third party software called JoytoKey.
