After learning here how to use the XBox 360's controller for use in GM, I went ahead and created a library for D&D members to use.

This is my first library to date. Any bugs, suggestions, and so on I appreciate hearing.

I've included the button graphics in case anyone would prefer changing them, or simply modifying them slightly.

Of course not, but you're able to plug the controller into your usb port and use it for game you build.

I'm reading on Wikipedia that the original XBox controller used a 'proprietary USB'. It may, but I wouldn't know (as I dont own an original XBox controller), so I encourage you to find that out for yourself, and comment back on any successes.

I believe the Xbox controller uses a USB cable with a modified connector - you have to attach a USB connector to the end to use it on a PC.

Not sure really. I wouldn't know what the 360 controller uses to communicate wirelessly. I'm assuming Bluetooth like the Wii controller, which either way requires some kind of receiver. I'll assume further that wireless controllers would require a DLL, since most joysticks aren't wireless for computers.

How about a wii controller library?

I know there's someone working on a DLL for GM's purposes. I think it may be called Giimote or something. If I were you, I'd search the forums, and see if they're looking into making a library for it (if it works yet).

:GM072: I'm guessing you're interested in making your own console? Punctuation goes a long way in explaining yourself better.

Anyhow, I didn't make this library (or the easy to use scripts found in the original topic) for making any emulation related activities easier. I'm quite against that sort of thing. I understand that's the first thing that comes to mind for some, but I hope that as game designers, people will think of their own original ideas instead, and respect the property rights of others.

You can use the original xbox controller with a PC. I did a project like this a while back.

This is pretty cool. I believe it works for the Lite version right? I haven't got an Xbox360, but lot's of my friends do.

I'll see if I could make a whole game for an Xbox360 controller attachment.

EDIT: It's not that I don't want to buy Pro, it's just that I, like so many here have had upgrading problems. I hope for a new upgrading system next time so that I might be of some contribution to this whole forum...

I forget whether you need Pro to use library files. If you know how to work with code, here are some scripts you can work with, since the functionality of the library and these scripts doesn't use any reg. functions.

I can use the library, that's Lite. I kinda got it to work.

You see I have a Microsoft SideWinder with no driver that isn't being recognized by my XP computer. I want to get it to work, but I have no driver and the one i got off the 'net didn't.

My friend tried his Logitech controller, which was recognized, but the buttons were messed up. A was like the joystick...

I'd like to see more of a tutorial on hwo to use this. I didn't quite get the joystick axis thing. If anyone knows how I can get my SideWinder to at least be recognized by Windows please let me know immediately.

No, not that I'm aware of. The original XB controller doesn't plug into a USB port.

Is it possible to make it so that the Xbox360 X-plorer guitar hero controller would work for GM?
