Xbox 360 Controller Support?
I just picked up a wired x360 controller to replace my old logitech gamepad, and was going to try it with YsF...only to discover that the configuration tool seems to not detect the x360 controller at all (it says no game pad detected).

Has anyone else had success, or similar problems, getting the x360 controller to work with YsF? I'm running Windows 7.

i have no issues with my wireless 360 controller on any Ys steam game. always make sure the controller is turned on before you load Ys, other than that not sure.

does it work normally in any other game? does windows itself see the controller; i.e. does it show in devices? you may have to download & install drivers.

Thanks for the response. First, to clarify, I'm using a wired x360 controller, not wireless. I did read that there are some tricks to making sure wireless ones work, but I'd kinda hope that the wired USB one would Just Work.

I'm on Windows 7, which ostensibly shouldn't require any drivers for the controller to work. However, the controller was appearing twice in device manager - once detected, once not (missing driver / code 28). I downloaded and installed the software from http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/xbox-360-controller-for-windows, but that didn't seem to make much difference. However, today I went and messed around a bit, and right-clicked the undetected entry and clicked "scan for hardware changes" - at which point that entry went away, and Ys seems to detect the controller now. So that's progress.

However, I have discovered a new wrinkle - it seems like the configuration utility can't map to the trigger buttons, which is kind of a let-down. Is there some way to get those to work? I might be able to make do without, but it'd be a little awkward.

hmm, only issue i've heard of with the wireless is folks attempting to use it not realizing they need the dongle. either way happy to know windows recognizes your game controller now.

And I don't believe there is a way to map the triggers, only the shoulders. if you want full mapping capabilities your best option is to download Xpadder. though the latest version of freeware v5.3 may not be compatible witih Win7. i paid the $9.99 to ensure compatibility & felt it was well worth it.
