I just got a 360 controller and plugged it into my PC. It works fine, except for two things:

using the top left thumbstick, I can't calibrate it so that the little cross touches the corners of the calibration box... how do I fix this (it means that in, say, Prince of Persia, I can't run diagonally)

Also, the X in the middle doesn't light up... is that normal?

yeah but I thought it had a driver disc...I have a psx to usb adapter, and if you hook a controller up to it...it's plug and play, but there's still drivers for it.

Yes I downloaded the Xbox 360 controller drivers with the found new hardware wizard... aka plug and play.

There are drivers for the controller on micro$oft.com http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/ga...ctdetails.aspx

But my x in the middle only lights up upon system boot. As for the shoulder buttons im not too sure - but it works great in NFSMW

Hmm. Well could anyone that has the 360 controller plugged into their PC go into the options for it and look at the "Dpad" square in the top left of the window. See if you can get the little + sign to touch the corners of the square.

Thanks


The thing is, this makes a lot of games not work right. For instance, any game involving a character you control with the top left thumbstick can't run diagonally... only walk. That's because the + sign doesnt get to the edge of the square in the preferences, so windows doesn't know I pushed the thumbstick as far as it goes.

Well I will try mine out - but I believe thats why you have two thumbsticks. Think about any game you played on ps2 or xbox and how the controls are setup. You have one thumb stick pushing forward to walk and then one thumbstick (right lower thumbstick) directing the direction you walk. I believe you are trying to set it up as it was a nintendo64 controller involving one thumbstick that does it all.

What game are you trying to set up

Well I was particularly trying to get it to work in Prince of Persia, using the top left thumbstick for movement and bottom right one for the camera... considering I have to use both the thumbstick and the buttons at the same time, I thought that was the most logical way of setting it up, especially considering Windows sees it as the main thumbstick.
