Universal Control Remapper

GitHub release IOWrapper version license Github All Releases AppVeyor Sonarcloud Status

Universal Control Remapper is a complete rewrite of the original UCR, created in collaboration with evilC.

Universal Control Remapper is a Windows application which allows the end-user to remap any inputs from devices, such as keyboards, mice, joysticks, racing wheels, eye trackers, etc. to virtual output devices. Remapping is achieved by transforming inputs through plugins to a desired output device.

Table of Contents


The latest release of Universal Control Remapper can be downloaded from GitHub and with a number of basic plugins. Extra experimental or niche plugins can be found in the UCR-Plugins repository. You may also need to install other drivers etc, for example to allow creation of virtual Xbox or DirectInput controllers. See the Providers page for details on these.

Test builds, patches, updated components, new or enhanced plugins etc., are often posted to the UCR channel in the HidWizards Discord server linked below. If you encounter any problems, it is best to check this channel for pinned patches.


Documentation for Universal Control Remapper are hosted on GitHub at
