4-way controls and Xboxdriv

I have recently had several people complain to me that the xbox360 controller I am using for my RetroPie system makes playing several arcade games horribly frustrating as the diagonal inputs often produce undesired changes in direction in games like pac-man.
I have read on the gethub page that it is possible to use xboxdrv to switch the controllers to a 4-direction configuration only for these specific roms, but I am not fluent at all in linux and am only barely passable in programing in general.
I was wondering if anyone has already made a configuration for xboxdrv that I would be able to copy to switch certain games to 4-way controls, or if not, if anyone would be willing to walk a complete noob through the process of making one?
Unfortunately, setting xboxdrv up in this way is a good bit more involved than just copying a few files. The documentation page is written to cover each and every little step, but it does require that you begin with a certain understanding of how to access and edit files remotely, as well as remotely execute commands. Even afterwards, you'll likely stumble around a fair amount before you have a working understanding of the whole thing.
If this hasn't scared you away yet, then my advice to you would be to not worry about the process as a whole and only concern yourself with the first few steps. If that works out for you, keep moving forward until you need help. Whenever you do need help, just come back here and I'll be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
