The D-Pad on the XBox controller can trigger two directions together, e.g. for diagonal movement. In the games I play each of the directions has its own function and it can be really annoying to trigger stuff you don't want to. Hence I have designed a replacement with dedicated buttons for each direction.


Take the controller apart and remove the d-pad assembly. Remove all the plastic from the inside the d-pad hole. The Thing will just drop in place and the controller can be reassembled.
