Re: Emulators

First of all you want to download the software from Microsoft which will allow you to use your wired Xbox 360 controller to play PC games. You can find it at Microsoft Downloads.

Just fill in the relevant details, download the file and install it on your PC.

Some versions of Windows will automatically detect the controller when you plug it in and prompt you to update your system with the relevant drivers. You can try this first if you don’t want to download the software separately.

Once the software is installed you can plug your Xbox 360 controller into your USB port on your computer. To ensure it is working correctly select Game Controllers in the Control Panel in Windows.

Re: Emulators

Haven't found anything as far as using a wireless controller goes. Also, if you are using the plug and charge pack, that won't work.

Re: Emulators

Yeah, I knew the controller sent a wireless signal, but I thought the cord could be used to transmit the signal, as well.  I didn't realize the cord was for charging the battery only.

Ah, well.  I'll hit a dollar store and get a cheap hardline controller.  Thanks for the help, though, MM and Az.

Re: Emulators

I would hit any thrift store or used game store for a PC controller or a third party Xbox controller.

Re: Emulators

I'll be doing that tomorrow.  There's a Family Dollar nearby that has a crapload of that kind of thing.

Re: Emulators

I remember a few years back buying a NES at a thrift store. I also got Super Mario Bros., Yo! Noid!, Legend of Zelda and some boxing game. It was pretty cool playing Mario Bros. on its original console. But I ended up selling it a few months later haha tongue
