I got the idea this morn' that I will make a USB adapter for my Xbox controller so I can use it as a joystick. I souldered all of the wires together and it runs fine and everything.

Here's the problem:

I'm playing Vice City and I want to look around, but sadly the right stick only moves me just like the left.

I set it to be used as the "hat" but to no avail.

Has anyone else had the same problem? (a solution would be helpful too!)

On a side note: I'm now able to use it to transfer files to my Xbox. :D :D (like MechInstaller!)

Check that out here.

you souldered everything by yourself????? lol

how do you do that? like i know you need a soulrding gun but like i dont get the rest

and maybe it doesnt work because you souldered the wores wrong no offense but to me it seems kinda hard.

No, I know I soldered everything correctly because everything works fine.

I'm just wondering if there is some setting I can fool around with that will make the right joy stick act like the mouse. (moves the view around)

Umm, probably not, because I don't think many people have done that before. :P

Anyway, just wait. Microsoft will most likely be releasing a USB Controller S. In their press conference at E3, they stated that users will soon be able to play an MMORPG [I can't remember the title] on either a pc or XBox, using either a keyboard or Xbox controller. Watch the press conference. It's on the E3 Access DVD. Buy it. Now. Or be forever in the dark.

cant you just change to settings to make it the correct view. it makes sense that there would be one.

I'm not wasting anything because I use it a lot now.

I don't use the controller itself, I use the breakaway cable.

I'll make you one if you want Biljo, just buy a breakaway cord and a USB cord.
