Xbox 360 Controller Bizarre Functionality

Post by chillyche » Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:43 pm

So, Craft Director Tools recognized my Xbox 360 Controller for Windows, as do some games. However, Craft doesn't really recognize the layout of the controller. For instance, while the controller features 2 analog sticks, I only have one set of X, Y, Z axis to choose from in Craft. I also have a hat to choose from, which the Xbox controller doesn't really have, unless one is counting the D-pad as a hat (I suppose that would work). But I really need both joysticks to work -- the whole reason I went with this controller as an input device in the first place.

Anybody have any experience with this?

It should recognize the analog sticks and buttons without a problem. However the Xbox controller uses the Right and Left Trigger as the same input which can be a bit confusing and that is not something we can change.
Try using the detect function when configuring the analog sticks. Click on the detect button and then move the input you like to use i.e. one of the analog sticks. It will configure it automatically for you.

Thanks. It seems to work by using the detect feature, and now I see what the different buttons/sticks are called in windows (not terribly intuitive names, but we can blame windows for that).

ilzadiraa I am not sure what you are having problems with. Could you please be a bit more specific?
