Controller question
« on: March 26, 2008, 21:49:48 »

Hey there,

I have been using a combination of the keyboard, mouse and a joystick to control ship sim but with the arrival of New Horizons i really need to change it about a bit.  So i read on another post that Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers are being used to control the ships.  I have and Xbox 360 and wirless controllers. If anyone out there can offer some assistance in to how to get it hooked up to mi PC and working it would be greatly appriciated!!!

You could probably look on the Microsoft website if that helps at all...

You can get USB adapters for PS2 controllers for the PC. I have one and it works a treat :)

Hey Admiral, I use the Xbox 360 Controller - Wired. It's fantastic (when new, and hasn't suffered 4 years of Halo-use!), and makes using the Bugsier (and any other ship) even better.

If you'd like to use your wireless one's on the PC, you'll need to buy this...

I want to get that myself as I'm curious to see how my racing wheel will work with Ship Sim. :)
