And I have a great news, one of my users offers me a N52, and will soon send it by mail
Sooooo, I think I'll manage to make this one work too with Vista and Seven !
For instance, With my N50, I play Crysis, QuakeLive and some MMO under VISTA32 almost everyday (RoseOnline, LastChaos, GuildWars...)...
Stalker : Clear sky, Aquanox I/II, are working great too, etc...
It works also in all sort of applications , not only games. One of my users, Ron Alpert (http://www.texturemonkey.com/
) is using it for it's job.
Some "Games for windows" that were designed to work with XBox Gamepad, such like LEft4Dead, just automatically map the buttons of the game controller and you cannot always change some bindings. In Left4Dead, Button8 of the 1st Gamepad met in the list of Gaming Device opens the game menu , wich is pretty annoying. Some people think it is an issue of my software, but nope.
Just be sure to download the XP version if you are running XP 32 or 64, and the VISTA/Seven version otherelse.
Just remember when you install :
- Do not install Belkin's drivers
, just let Windows do the job with it's regular drivers (your nostromo should appear then in your Gaming devices)
- No installation required of the software : just unzip anywhere on your Disk.
- Run the 3 executables (Macro List editor, Profiler, and Commander) as with admmin privileges, UAC may ask you a few questions ("Are you sure to run this program ? blabla !"), unless you deactivated it.
Just spread the word and have fun !
Last, to tell you that as a developper point of view, VISTA and Seven have a very good USB devices management (compared with XP). And what is doing Belkin is a real shame : it's not because they cannot provide some software for our N50 or N52, but more because they do not want ! (Or they should just explain me why I was able to do it in 3 month when I had no experience of USB programming !)
Of course, sources are available for download, and the programs were written in Delphi (kind of Object Pascal).
