I'd like to let you know that my controller works perfectly as a gamepad now. Thanks for the help and whatnot.

Btw, using the XBCD driver results in the screensaver becoming active as if there is no input to interrupt its timer. Is there a way around it?

thats got nothing to do with the driver.

 


Windows XP and up ignore the standard microsoft approved methods for preventing power management when the screensaver is set to password protected. Application's have to hack around this by implementing fake mouse events, but doing so can get serious developers in trouble for introducing security risks

Well, i fixed it by using an Autohotkey script that moves the mouse around a bit. Thanks!

I'm having trouble with XBCD 0.2.7 on Win7x64.


I have a MadCatz 2.4Ghz wireless xbox classic controller, that works great on my XP laptop with XBCD.

 


VID_0738&PID_45FF

 


In device manager I see:


Human Interface Devices


- HID-compliant game controller


- XBCD Xbox Foot Pad

 


Control Panel Devices shows


- HID-compliant game controller

 


Game Controller properties shows


"XBCD MadCatz Beat Pad (w/ Handle)"

 


But if I go into that, none of the buttons or sticks work.


Additionally, if I open the XBCD Setup Utility, no devices show.

 


If I try and manually update the driver for the "HID-compliant game controller", the compatible drives are shown as: "HID-compliant game controller" and "HID-compliant device". If I manaully select the "XBCD Xbox Controller" I get a BSOD.

 


Help!

The hid driver is actually virtualised by the xbcd driver

 

 


however, what i believe might be the issue is that madcats is using the PID/VID from one of their controllers usb hub (Xbox pads are a 3 port hub with the controller logic hard wired to one of them.) which is causing the driver to install on the actual hub device rather than the controller device.

I have the same controller as falaschi, which looks like this: http://www.epinions.com/review/Mad_Catz_MADCATZ_MOV545860_04_1_XBOX_MICROCON_WIRELESS_CONTROLLER_MAD54586_1_1/content_256773885572?sb=1

 


So do I have to manually edit the inf to fix this?

Yes, uninstall the current xbcd hid driver from programs and features

 


then in c:\program files\xbcd (or c:\program files (x86)\xbcd)

 


look inside the driver folder, and inside xbcd.inf


remove the lines for the 45FF version of the beatpad w/handle, there should be two of them.

 


I'm not sure who who added that beatpad to the inf, but it appears to be a bad addition, its been in the driver since i picked it up and kept it maintained.

Ok, so now I get an extra "Generic USB Hub"


But no controller showing up.

 


USBView shows:


External Hub: USB#VID_0738&PID_45FF#6&2f404ca5&0&1#{f18a0e88-c30c-11d0-8815-00a0c906bed8}

 


Under that I have Port1,Port2,Port3 all showing NoDeviceConnected.

 


To install, I completely removed everything via control panel. Ran XBCD_Installer_0.2.7.exe as admin, skipped the driver install. Edited the inf, Ran the "Reinstall Driver" shortcut as admin.
