Re: Tips for first-year programmers

you can use a normal xbox controller with windows, but it can't be wireless. you have to actually have a wired only controller, as just connecting a cable won't route the data to the PC, for a wireless controller, you need the windows gaming adapter. If memory serves, that type of wireless network is not permitted on the field.
