controller.cfg for XBOX 360 controller (for MVP on the PC)

Recommended Posts

OK, got a few more questions for ya since I don't want to screw things up when I try this:

1) Should I double click on that XBCD XP file (the one you linked me to earlier) before I plug the controller into the USB port, or while I have the controller plugged in?

2) Will using the file you gave me affect my game play at all during other games, say, like Halo PC, that I have used it for before and it worked well?

3) Again using the file you linked me to and no other, can I use the controller "like a mouse" for in game menu browsing, as I have seen several other ask about here?

Thanks again

1.That's the way I installed. It probably doesn't matter, but I've seen some computers screw things up if you don't install the drivers before plugging things in.

2.It'll affect other games, if you have previously configured them to use the gamepad using the Microsoft drivers.

3. The XBCD driver applet doesn't have the ability to do this (that I know of). You probably need another application to configure that and I don't know the name of it offhand.

microsoft drivers off of microsoft.com, then the XBCD XP drivers.

Alright, go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Hardware. Opt not to use Windows Update. Choose the driver to install. Choose the pick from a list option and track down the XBCD controller driver.

But if I use your driver AND THEN try to use it to play Halo PC it should work like normal?

And what's the point of this extra driver anyways? The controller doesn't work for MVP 2005 without it?

I assume you meant "Don't search I will choose the driver to install" when you said pick from a list option. After that I select the hardware type as "sound, video, and game controllers" then click next. It lists several vendors, none of which are xbox or microsoft.

You'll probably have to remap the controls (if you use the gamepad).

the biggest benefits are being able to configure the triggers as independent buttons instead of parts of a single axis and the added rumble support. MVP works with the default MS drivers, but it works better with the XBCD drivers.

The XBCD driver should be listed as a "Human Interface Device".

One other thing, have you tried configuring your gamepad on another machine?

When I choose Human Interface Device I have a large choice of vendors to choose from. There's nothing xbox related under Microsoft and I cannot find anything XBCD related. I have no other machines to test this on currently unfortunately.

I don't know how they cannot be. Its an executable file that I ran and installed itself. There is an XBCD folder in my program files. When I open that setup program it doesn't show anything to select from under Device.
