What is ControlStadia?
ControlStadia is a Chrome extension that enhances your gaming experience on Stadia by enabling the customizable mapping of input devices to a 'standard' virtual gamepad. It can map up to four physical gamepads into one, and users can scale and offset axis for increased sensitivity. The extension works for both normal gaming applications and out-of-the-box ideas. It comes with features such as an automatic joystick finder and allows for individual setting of each button and axis.

With ControlStadia, you can:

  • Map up to four physical gamepads to a single "standard" virtual gamepad which works with Stadia.

  • Scale and offset axis to increase or decrease sensitivity, change axis ranges.

  • Do normal things like playing GRID with a steering wheel and pedals!

  • Do ridiculous things like playing Borderlands 3 with a flight yoke and throttle quadrant!


Simply install the extension and open or refresh Stadia! Click the extension icon to configure your virtual joypad.

Once the extension menu is open, it should automatically look for any joysticks plugged into your PC. If none show up, try pressing a button or moving a stick on one.

I couldn't get the SteelSeries Stratus Duo to work with this extension. It recognizes it as a Xbox 360 controller.

i just discovered this yesterday, very very very useful for Elder Scroll Online... I would ask to the developer t create a second button line. I mean, right now we can choose 1 key for 2 buttons. which is amazing and can just create combos. but can U creat a secondary button line, to have 2 keys for 1 button. bcz some combos dont allow to use obly 1 button, and it would be a help if i could choose one free button for that particular option. do u know what i mean?
