Anyway there I was today standing in Target after work looking for a wired XBOX 360 controller...of course they did not have any and I needed (wanted) one right now. With gas prices the way they are I decided to risk it and go with an Aftermaket (Microsoft Licensed) XBOX 360 controller. It's an "Afterglow AX.1 (Glowing Orange) 360 knockoff"
Truth be told, when I got it home needless to say I was a little nervous because the instructions said nothing about support for Windows PC. Being ever so brave and one step on the cutting edge, I unwrapped that bad lad and plugged it into the USB port...a few seconds later (an enternity really especially because I am risking making a mistake on a tight budget) I saw, "your device is now configured for your PC"...Suuuweeet!?!?
Ummm, Well...not so fast...now I need to write some code to make sure I can actually interface with it or I'll be ordering an OEM from Amazon like I should have to begin with.
To be continued...
