How the heck do you use an XBOX360 controller with the chicklet??

If the chicklet is supposed to support the XBOX 360 controller and is usb based, how does it work if the controller is not usb?

The XBox 360 controller is indeed USB based. The wireless versions talk directly to the XBox, but you can purchase wired versions which have a USB plug (so they can be used in Windows, as well).

Re: How the heck do you use an XBOX360 controller with the chicklet??

thanks. I was looking at our xbox and it wasn't a usb connection. when I called bestbuy, they said it wasn't usb for the 360, and I've never seen one since I dont have that system.
Is it a plug and play system like past FIRST controllers, including the chicklet?

I don't know because the controller does require a driver for windows, but technically if it is plug and play with the xbox 360 then you should have no problem just plugging it all into the oi and using it since the chicklet is said to support the xbox 360 controller

I tried to convince our school that we needed to buy an xbox 360 and games to have our drivers practice using the controllers in driving games,.....hehehe.....technically its justifiable.

Ive had the same idea, but the school won't agree, they will just get you the controller.

Thumbs up Re: How the heck do you use an XBOX360 controller with the chicklet??

i for one think that being able to use different controllers is an amzing thing to have, I know that every year the same old complaints are put forth about the joy sticks "they are TOOO sensitive"

hmm it would be awsome to use Wii controllers, tehee then you can actualy be your robot. just a thought

That would be really cool, but from what i've noticed the wii controller lags a little bit and you really don't want that lag in the control of your robot

Re: How the heck do you use an XBOX360 controller with the chicklet??

We had come up with the idea of using an xbox 360 controller while standing on the demo arena at the kickoff in manchester, nh. I knew we wouldn't be the only ones to come up wih such a great thing. Just don't know if it s possible to get it to work on the bot.

You do not need to buy the special Windows/X-box version of the controller. Don't be tricked into paying more! You can just buy the regular X-box wired controller and download the Windows driver from the Microsoft website for free.

The 360 controller is indeed a standard USB connection. There are two USB ports on the front of the 360 console hidden by a door, and one on the back of the console. You can connect a lot of USB devices to the 360 like MP3 players, flash drives, and external USB hard drives and get music & pictures off of them. I don't know what the person at Best Buy was thinking when they told you it wasn't USB.

Also, the original X-box controllers actually are USB, they just have a unique, non-standard connector.

Wouldn't the Xbox 360 controller be a bit more difficult to drive with? Its not like it's a racing game that you are using it for.

Your right, but if your comfortable with the controller enough to a point where you can use it efficiently then my question is WHY NOT?

Re: How the heck do you use an XBOX360 controller with the chicklet??

I know, it's just that we have a couple of drivers who are much more proficient at the joysticks, which they can use "inituitively." If I were driving, I agree, I probably would use the XBOX controller.
