"Unreal Tournament 3" is a first-person shooter developed by Epic Games for the PC. When the game originally launched, there was no built-in support for joysticks or gamepads. This was changed with the release of the Version 1.01 game patch. Any version of the game that is post-1.01 is compatible with a joystick, but the game's ".ini" file must be properly configured before use. Once configured, you can use your joystick to play "Unreal Tournament 3."

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" button on the desktop, then click the empty search dialogue box located within.

  2. 2

    Type "Unreal Tournament 3" into the search box, then double click the "Unreal Tournament 3" directory folder that appears in the search results. Take care to click the folder icon, and not the .exe icon that appears, as the .exe folder will launch the game.

  3. 3

    Double-click the "UTGame" folder, then the "Config" folder.

  4. 4

    Double-click the "UTEngine.ini" file.

  5. 5

    Locate and change the "AllowJoystickInput=0" variable to "AllowJoystickInput=1" under the "[WinDrv.WindowsClient]" section of the file.

  6. 6

    Save the changes made, then launch "Unreal Tournament 3."

  7. 7

    Click "Options" in the main menu, then click "Configure Controls."

  8. 8

    Bind the control functions to the joystick, then click "Save." The joystick is now ready to use with "Unreal Tournament 3."
