How do I use a 360 type controller.

#1LeifLongbottomPosted 7/14/2011 12:30:33 PM

This is one of the only PC games I play with a controller but my ps2 looking pc controller no longer works.

Would I be able to use the 360 corded controller my wife uses for Fallout?

I ask because when I tried to, it wouldn't pick up the right analog stick for camera and the controller options also wouldn't recognize the L/R 2 (trigger) buttons.

The same thing (with the right stick) would happen with the ps2 looking controller I used to use but all I had to do was press the "analog" button on the controller and it was fine. The 360 controller has no such button.

I use a free program called JoyToKey. With it you can set actions to the keyboard in-game, and map those keys to buttons on your controller.

The problem is that the right analog stick is completely unresponsive. Can I map the mouse action to the analog stick? It works fine in Fallout 3.

That might help with the triggers at any rate.

Yeah, you can map the mouse to the analogue stick as well. I forgot to mention that part.
