Installed latest Mach4 version on my development computer.  Plugged the xbox controller in.  It works.  downloaded the 2 files and put them in the plugins directory.  No Joy.  Rebooted and loaded Mach4. Still no joy.  Don't know what else to try.  Win10 HP envy x360. Pokey57cnc.

Still can't figure out why it doesn't show in the Config->Plugins
Latest Dev release and latest mcXbox download.  Would really appreciate any help.

TIA

Step 2 Open Mach4 and enable the mcXbox plugin under Config -> Plugins
Step 3 restart
step 4 Config
Step 5 Enjoy Xbox and all it's majesty

Small update made... The Feedrate overrides would go past the bounds. I fixed that and uploaded Rev2.1.1 same download

Brian,  I thought you were onto the problem with removing Daz's plugin.  Deleted those files as well as pokeys and pmdx.  No luck.  Rebooted and fired up M4.  Same result

Thanks for trying

I think your missing step2 :) Old versions of Mach4 would magically enable the plugins. That is gone now :(

My version of step 2 is not so great... It should be as follows :
Step 2 Config-> Control  Plugin tab, and enable the plugin

Sorry about that!

Had a few minutes to play around with this on my mill.  Super useful! Thank you!

ok, you asked.... and we will respond  ;)

Is there a way to toggle between step and continuous jogging with the joysticks?
Can you cycle through the jog increments?

What do the jog/MPG# and MPG# do?
The mouse control is cool but can you set it up so that if mouse is enabled the joysticks move the mouse and when not they have other function?

I never added a way to do incremental jogging. I don’t really know how that should be done to tell you the truth. That is why I added the massive amount of exponential to the jog values.

I think your asking to have two mappings. One while in mouse mode and the other then it is in mach4 ? That could be done but the setup becomes a little complex. I really like the tap a key and set it and I don’t want to get away from that.

I am willing to make some changes, you have any good ideas how that could be done and make it easy to setup and not complex to operate?

The MPG stuff is leftover from the shuttle pro, may need to be taken out
