Anyone using the wireless Xbox controller for G100
« on: March 16, 2008, 06:21:07 PM »
G`day All,
Just having issues using the wireless xbox controller via the plugin for mach.
All the buttons work,however I cant jog the axis.
I am running V2.63.

Interested if anyone had  this problem and worked it out.
OR
if anyone can recommend a wireless hand controller that works with the G100.

Thanks,any help would be great
Regards

I wouldn't recommend any wirless controller for a machine whatda. I think I used a usb gampad with mine, can't remember for sure. I know I have used it a lot while running hardware other than the G100

Thanks,
Just curious ,why dont you suggest wireless,no one had any luck?
I am running the g100 through a laptop ,wirelessly(if thats a word?) now
without any problems(touch wood).

And to finish it up.I would like to make the whole setup cable free,if
I cant I will have to do with a gamepad or something,
Do you know what usb/cable controller works well with the G100.

Regards

Well whatda, The reason I dont recommend it is because their is allways a possibility of interferance. This isn't a remote control truck. If a trucker keys up his insanely powerful cb, It could cause a mess. Someone could get hurt. And I use the cb as an example, lots of things can cause problems. Wireless phones, microwaves, etc. But, if you feel safe doing it that way, let me know how it does. It is an interesting way of doing it. I thought it would be good for some laughs my self, but went with remote assist instead. LOL I use a recoil gamepad I picked up at wallmart. I don't remember how well if at all it worked with the G100. I think one problem you'll have with the wireless is the drivers. Don't think it will communicate without the drivers and going thru keygrabber, that in itself will cause problems (installing the drivers for the gamepad). I don't know if you could use the joy stick plug in to do it.  ???

I use www.xpadder.com software and i configure the "system hotkeys setup" on mach3 to use que control.
Very good software.
