[quote="David":juoeespu]Um just a simple construct game I put together where u shoot familiar looking mushrooms. Left trigger zooms in, right trigger fires, and the left anologue sticks moves the cursor. I think I've implimented the code for deadzones etc correctly, does it 'feel' correct ?[/quote:juoeespu]

[quote="David":3ntbppso]I used the recommending by microsoft deadzones...i tried lowering them a bit and i had 'troubles' so i kept them as they were, but i'll make them customisable[/quote:3ntbppso]

The horrible thing about the X360 Controller is the freakin Digipad. It's sooo crappy and really ruins most of the arcade games they've got on Xbox Live Arcade (those that suck with Analog Controls, like Beat em Ups, etc.).

I've got a wired 360 controller that I use for driving games and stuff like that on the PC. With vista you just plug it in and away you go... no drivers or anything are required.

Btw Dave... if you want, there are better third party drivers for the controller available for download. You will just have to serach for them, but they are called XBCD (I have v1.07 on my XP box) and they are MUCH better than the Microsoft "official" drivers.

Awesome, this works great.

Finally signs of construct allowing controllers.

A wired USB 360 controller is about the best gamepad I have found for PC. Because it wasn't built like most flimsy crap PC controllers. :| PS2 ones are great too, not got an adapter for that yet.

Demo app is epic! Controls nicely. (:
