It will work if you use a leap motion and driver4vr, for handtracking.
Otherwise I think you will have to use x360ce to make it work on games that use the xbox controller.
I liked the R1 too, a lot, until I dropped it. Had 2 but one was faulty and the other broke.
I think the easiest solution for you though would be to plug in a ps4 controller and install DS4 Windows (I think that is what it is called). Can't recommend the R1 unless you have leap motion.
