I have loaded core productions tomb raider this version was originally
for playstation but has been reworked to run on Microsoft windows
98 xp vista and 7 . I have installed soft ware that came with the
controller and it seems to connect but only the forward ..back. and side
to side button works hope you can help many thanks John.L
John, It sounds like you just do not have the proper software installed for the controller. Have you installed the software from this website? http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/xbox-360-controller-for-windowsIf not download the software and give it a shot. Make sure you download the correct version. If you are running 64 bit then get the 64 bit. Keep me posted.
I have just downloaded software as suggested but it tells me I have already got this software installed ,Many thanks
John, If that is the message you are getting you probably have the software setup properly. I am not familiar with the Tomb Raider game you are trying to use it with, but perhaps some configuration is needed. For games that do not have support built in for a particular controller such as your 360, you have to set up a Key Map. I am not sure if you are familiar with this. Lets say in Tomb Raider the key to jump was the space bar. You would have to setup the control pad software so that space bar was linked to a particular button such as A, B, a thumb stick ext. You assign a button for every key on the keyboard.
If you are unsure of how to do this I wouldn't mind doing a screen share session with you to try and figure this out. If you are interested let me know. I will be available for a while tonight. If not we can set something up for a later time.
Hi Chris I understand what you are saying but I don't know how to assign the key pad buttons to the controller .As it is getting a bit late now
can I contact you tomorrow an give it a try ? thanks for help so far
Hi Chris that sounds good will contact you tomorrow many thanks
have spoken to local pc world where I purchased controller
from they say that it should auto assign because Microsoft controller
should work with Microsoft game ,They suggest that it may be a faulty
controller? perhaps I should try that first?
