There are two types of gamepads you can connect to your computer. One is the game port on the sound card and the other is through USB port. Either way once you plug it into your computer you need to go to control panel and configure your device. Click on Switch to Classic View first if option is avaliable. Then double click on Game Controllers. Then you have two options, if a usb device has being detected then you will be able toclick on properties and configure the device. If not, you will have to click on add and select from a list of gamepads and select the one closets to your device. Then click on properties and configure the device. Follow on screen instructions.

Now once you have done the above you will also need to configure the controller gamepad in the game itself under options and under input devices/joysticks.

Good luck! Please rate after you are completed!

Gamepad to usb adapters?


The adapter is out there. I happened upon one a while back, and got a nice joystick to work with it (win2k).

I can't seem to get my gamepad pro grip to work though. I think I may have bad controllers.

You can start from OPTIONS in the main menu of any game and then choose CONTROLS. There if you have both the options : keyboard/gamepad, then only you can use the gamepad.
Then if you have the Gamepad option there, then select it and configure/assign the gamepad keys for your game. You can do it by going onto an option; lets say ACTION and then click the Gamepad key you want to assign. Hold down that Gamepad key and double click the mouse. There you go.Your Gamepad is up and running for your game.
Cheers.

Gigaware controller on vista


Hi,
You don't (and can't) disable DEP for the controller (a gamepad controller isn't an application, it's a device which uses a driver, Data Execution Protection applies to applications ie .exe files), it's the game or emulator you disable DEP for, so that you the game can run, completely free of security bindings, and then you would be able to go into the game configuration menu and select your gamepad, and calibrate it. Calibrating means the game detects you gamepad and applies the specific functions to each button.
One way to be sure is to disable DEP for everything, then install a game, and THEN plug in your gamepad. Then start the game/emulator and go to the configuration menu within the game/emulator and set up the gamepad calibration in there.
If it doesn't work, then you haven't installed the drivers for the gamepad properly, or haven't installed the correct driver.

Before doing any of that, you would have checked in Control Panel and Gamepad Controllers, double clicked the Gamepad in the list and pressed Calibrate, to enable generic gamepad functionality.
If you hadn't done that, do so now.
If it still doesn't work, then NOW disable the DEP (either all DEP or for the game/emulator you want to play). Unplug the Gamepad and load up a game. Then plug the game pad in. Set up the gamepad from within the game/emulator config menu, which differs from game to game, of course, but is more or less the same.
If it doesn't work.. re-install the correct driver for the gamepad.
Also make sure your operating system is fully updated and you're plugging the gamepad into a usb2.0 port. and have rebooted after installing the gamepad usb driver.
That's everything you need to know..
Good Luck!
