Were you able to solve your problem? The plugin works with those devices that use the Microsoft XInput header. Many clone controllers use the same commands and structures as the Microsoft Controller. That is why they work with the plugin. I suspect that the Sony uses its own drivers based upon a different set of commands. Therefore the plugin cannot see it. Especially since it is for the playstation and not the XBox360. I think you just need to get a different controller.
Hi, I am trying to get the xbox360 plugin to work. The wireless controller I have is a sony sixaxis and is working (talking) with my pc using XP with a bluetooth dongle, I am entering the vid and pid I got from device manager, then closing/open mach3 but it does not hold the values, it resets back to zeroes, and it does not dither the found/none controller option box, I did use Xpadder to get it temporary running but am concerned of safety. Is there something simple That I am missing here? As I would like to be able to use the plugin with all the options it has, Thank you, Robert
