Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Old Controllers with Windows XP
emnmnmeHeard about this on conservative radio:Registered Userregular
I have Windows XP SP2 and an old XBOX controller. After getting an adapter dongle, I searched the internets for drivers and found XBCD comes highly recommended. The trouble is I can't figure out how to configure the d-pad. In 2D platfomers like Oddworld or Earthworm Jim, the left analog stick controls fine but the d-pad does nothing. I thought I'd just assign an axis to each direction on the d-pad in the driver's Setup screen but that just makes Abe and Jim go crazy, as if all directions are being pushed at the same time. Is there a trick to this?
