... Think I had loaded the driver on my system given you need it for m3 and the Xbox 360 controller

BR549 this is a long shot, the plugin is set to use controller 1, is the light on your controller in the top left?

OK Just to make sure this is CLEAR it is a Xbox360 clone.  Not a true xbox360. But it runs everything else I have tried it on.  It works the test screen in widows just fine. It runs fine with UCcnc .

There is only 1 light on the controller it is the analog ON light in between the thumb sticks.

That makes things clearer for me, i have read some code that remaps some of the internals to accommodate a clone controller. will take a look, have u a link to the controller you have and I will get one for testing.

(;-) It was a $7 xbox clone off of Amazon. Not really worth pursueing  .

Don't spend any time on this (;-) I had thought sense it ran as a HID device in windows it would be generic in nature. I guess the Plugin does not use the HID interface ??  

UCcnc runs it as an HID device.

Hello Daz,

I'm so glad that you created this plugin. I have a very big Thermwood Router, it's over 4m wide so mobility is essential. My wireless xbox controller helps make setting up a breeze, without it setups would be far more painful.

Thank You!!
