Hi,
I am in the process of moving and should be operational again next Tues. I will then check the code and see if I missed the full battery indicator. It sounds like you are using tha Microsoft controller and receiver so that should be okay.  Send me an Email with your return email address. If the code needs any touch up I'll do it and send it to you directly for testing.  Got to run-- back to packing.

Hi Fab,

I am operational again. I need more info.  What model of Wireless Controller and Wireless receiver are you using? Are you using XP or Vista? Normally, the Control Panel will not show battery level but it will allow you to test the controller.  Are you using rechargable batteries or standard? If you are using the Play And charge Kit (sealed rechargeable battery pack), you need to charge it with the cable connected to the controller and the other end connected to the XBox360. Do not try and charge the battery with that cable connected to the pc.  I'll wait to hear from you.

Hello Lee,

thank's for the help, i send you the information :

- the model is the set of controller and wireless receiver (JR9-00002),
- i use a dedicated PC for Mach3 with Windows XP Pro SP3,
- yes the control panel doesn't show the batterie level but the the tool 'Microsoft Xbox 360 Accessories'
installed with the pack show the batterie level. It is Version 1.10.123.0
I stopp the automaticaly run of this tool, but Mach3 continue to say the batterie level is low.
- I use standard batterie, no rechargeable.

Hi,
That is the same wireless controller that I have and it works fine on my pc.  The problem you are experiencing is likely caused by changes that Microsoft made in the XInput.h and XInput.lib files.

I suspect that you are using old DirectX files.
Here is a link to the June 2008 DirectX end-user redistributable :

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=822640ab-0983-4c41-9c70-632f6f42c557&displaylang=en

or you can simply go to Microsoft's site and search for "DirectX June 2008"  Then pick the June 2008 end-user redistributale from the list.

If you download and install it, it will update your DirectX.  The August 2008 version may work fine,but, I haven't tried that version yet. So stick with the June version for now.

Try that and then let me know how it goes.

Hi,

I looked at your files and everything looks good. I do not know why you are having this problem.  I will send you a new plugin that does not test for the battery.  In that way, you can use it now until I can figure out what is happening.

Let me know how that works.
