CtrlPal is a light-weight tool for testing game controllers connected to your computer, including original and aftermarket PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and other gamepads. Use it to test for damaged buttons, worn out joy sticks and damage to vibration motors. CtrlPal is a free tool available for Windows (with Linux and Mac OSX support coming soon). Features include:
  • Support for up to 15 digital buttons and 10 analog axis 
  • Support for vibration/rumble motors
  • Improved (unofficial) support for PlayStation and Xbox gamepads
  • *New* PlayStation DualShock 4 now supported with additional gamepads in the works
To get started:

1. Select your gamepad
2. Push each button and move each joystick until you see red markers appear on the pictured gamepad and axis register input.
3. Select a vibration strength then click "start vibration" to test your gamepads rumble feature.

Thats it! Notice how damaged buttons may fail to register when pressed while worn out joysticks may continue to register input after release.
