Thread: Xbox Controller For Pc

  1. #1
    umm I don't wanna pay for a gamepad so I'm gonna turn my xbox controller into one. But I don't own a soldering iron (or solder,) is there an alternative to using one of those? A lighter? And where do I get solder? Ace maybe?

    in case you're interested, here's a guide I found:

    I hope it works out, I love that controller.

    You don't need to solder, just use electrical tape. Cut the short section of the Xbox controller's cable and splice it together with a standard USB cable, matching up the same colored wires. Then you just need to install this driver so your PC will recognize it...

    you're right, but I cannot play euro 2004 with my POS $4 dollar keyboard (it really was 4 dollars.) The keys keep cancelling each other out, and NFSU was built to use a steering wheel, and I can't afford one (although I want one for TOCA.)

    and nightwolf thanks, that's what I needed to hear .

    Gepper...BF is a mouseboard/joystick game, I am the green baron on forgotten hope, too bad its hard to find servers nowdays, everyone playing that vietnam crap, my helicopter skills got worn down by the n00bness of the bfv physics (DC is more realistic-ish flying choppers.)


    this was a successful post. B)

    now someone lock it before it goes to hell

    You don't cut the actual cord, just the little extension at the end which is a seperate piece. You can probably get a used one for less than 10 bucks.

    p.s. If the above driver doesn't work, here's another one you can try...

    I have not done anything yet...but gamestop is right next to radioshack (I gotta pick up a usb cord, no mice to chop over here ) so I'll check for the converter first, if I find it I'll buy it, if I don't I'll go for the constructive option, thanks again nightwolf, and twister .
