Getting a controller to work in Windows or XBMC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I want to know if this is possible. The game pad is a generic one though, so while I doubt it would work, maybe you guys know something I dont tongue.gif

Would be great to get it to work in windows, but if not, just XBMC would be ok.

I use an xbox 360 controller to play my PC games. they work. But on your controller look for the drivers & it should work.

I was confused at first... this is for the IR remote, which I dont' think you have, but is what I used...

But I think your more looking for this:

as far as windows goes, I don't know, but you modify your keyboard.xml (with notepad or note++) to assign your keys to it.
