I don't own that game but anyway here is what i found:
  • "There is no support for 360 controllers besides maybe using them for flight."
  • Take a look at this page, there's this guy: "craig3000", who found a way to configure it.
good luck...

Do the controllers for a 360 even work? I had to use my madkatz windows ready ones. The regulars wouldn't get detected.

Yea, they did not for me and no one on steam could help me at the time. Sold my xbox stuff already though, kept the madkatz for street fighter 4.
