Windows 7: 360 Controller Drivers

360 Controller Drivers

Does anyone know or use any good 360 controller drivers that work with just about any game? I can't get XBCD to see my controller even though windows find's it easily.

Any help would be great, thanks.

You need to go to the Microsoft downloads website and input the type of controller you and and your operating system:

Gaming Software Download

Or you can just follow this link given that you have a Xbox 360 Wired Controller and are using it on a Windows 7 64-BIT computer:

Direct Link to Xbox 360 Wired Controller Drivers for Windows 7 64-bit

FYI, the XBCD is a driver for the XBOX Controller, not the Xbox 360 controller.

Got the official software but most games (mainly old ones) still don't work right.

Plus I didn't know XBCD was for the xbox 1 controller only. Thought it worked for both xbox's.

Well, one of the only options I can find if you really want functionality all across your computer is to buy a subcription to the program Switchblade.

SwitchBlade Gaming

It's $2 a month or $20 a year. I have no idea why you cant just buy the program outright, but hey, if you can afford it, download the trial and attempt to get it working in Windows 7.

Here's a link to the trial program: http://www.switchbladepro.com/LinkCl...edownload=true

I don't believe it has Windows 7 support yet so you may have it run it in Vista compatibility mode. Also, I don't know whether or not it will run on a 64-bit OS. I suggest the trial.
