Xbox 360 Controller Problems
This game has never worked for me in Windows. I have an Xbox 360 controller, works fine in all my other games. Game won't even recognize it. Need some help.

I don't really understand why this is happening. I have two 360 controllers. One wired. One wireless. Both just work automatically. Have you tried verifying the integrity of the game cache? Right click the game > properties > there's a button for that in there somewhere.

Yes. I have also deleted the game and reinstalled it. I just don't understand. I also had problems with Borderlands 2, Sanctum 2, Outlast and Super Meat Boy. Those issues were solved by disabling a HID compliant controller in my device manager. The only egg I can't crack is this hotline miami thing. Luckily I dual boot and it works on Linux but it's such a pain to reboot every time I want to play Hotline Miami and then go back to Windows to play Windows only games.... oh well.

"Those issues were solved by disabling a HID compliant controller in my device manager."
Sounds like you installed some software in the past to fiddle with Xbox Controllers, right? Something like vJoy maybe?

Im not sure but I had a Logitech controller and downloaded something for it. If I was booted into my Windows partition I could tell you but I'm up in Ubuntu right now.

Not sure about Outlast but the other three games you mentioned should just work as well. I think Skymirrh is on the right track. It sounds like something is conflicting with your 360 driver.

I would try the following:

  • Unplug any controllers.
  • Uninstall anything controller related (Microsoft, Logitech or otherwise) via Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
  • Open Device Manager
  • Right click any device which appears to be related to a game controller, select 'uninstall', make sure you click 'Delete driver software for this device" then click OK.
  • Reboot
  • Plug in your 360 controller.
  • Let it install the drivers from the internet automatically.

Hopefully that will fix it.

My wired 360 controller also just doesn't work with this game. The mapping is really strange but in my other games the controller works just fine. Drivers were only just installed.
