Hello Friends,

I own a Microsoft Xbox 360, I want to use my video-game console’s controller on my PC as well, since both devices use USB ports. So, I want to make Xbox Controller that will Work on my PC. Any idea to solve my problem please share with me. I hope the cooperation of all members make me better in my mission.

Thanks a lot!

If it’s a wireless controller, you need a wireless receiver, but a wired one will plug in fine. Then you need this driver (which may install automatically when Windows detects the controller) and you’re all set.

If you want to be able to use it for Flash games, you’ll need a key mapper that can assign keyboard keys to controller buttons.

xpadder works better but latest versions are no longer freeware
