oh yea..its a plug and play controller...is this compatible with the software? it plugs in and all..or do i have to get teh adaptor either way for the usb port to recognize itthere isnt any progress in this...ive gotten the 360 accessories installed it...the controller isnt being recognized...so far xpadder/logitech are able to be recognized in fallout key mapper but not able to be used as a controller, the game doesnt give me the option to choose the controller just map out the buttons. going to the official site for 360 accessories download isnt compatible cause im runnin sp3, and it says only sp1/sp2 are compatible with that one...but for some reason a different version is able to be installed despite that ive got sp3 running. im able to click on the help button and read the help files but not able to get pc to recognize the 360, the xbox button turns on but thats all its good for basically.
would i have to buy that 360 reciever for use of its conrollers? cause even ive installed 360 accessories 1.1, when i plug in the controller to usb it wont get rocognizedWell.. the controller won't work without the "Xbox 360 Accessories Software" regardless of which Operating System you are on, Have you installed it?
