  1. Is it possible to use the Xbox 360 controller with PC Minecraft?


    I recently started playing the PC version and it's definitely a lot better than the 360 version but there's a few things I really don't like about it such as the clunky mouse and keyboard controls. Maybe I'm just used to playing it on the console but it feels so much better to be able to use the analog sticks over the mouse anyday.

    After a bit of research I downloaded the drivers for the xbox controller however I still need another program that enables me to use it with Minecraft. I've heard people suggest Xpadder although I really don't want to pay for something if I can get a product with the exact same function for free. So are there any Mods or anything like that to fix this problem?

    Oh a side note I noticed my Xbox Controller doesn't light up when it's connected through my USB port but when I check the control panel it says it's working properly. Do I need a specific controller designed for the PC or will the ones made for the xbox work?

    Thanks!

    :)

    xbox one controller on pc

    Hi

    I don't think it is possible to use the Xbox 360 wireless receiver with an Xbox One controller. If your PC has Bluetooth then it is possible to connect some Xbox One controllers to a PC this way.

    XBOX360 drivers

    Hello kennethnomatye,

    It is not possible to connect the Xbox 360 to the PC using the Play & Charge kit. The only function of that cable is to charge the batteries).

    If you want to use that gamepad on the PC, you will need to buy a wireless adapter for Xbox 360 controller.

    The Xbox 360 controller, assuming you’re using wireless only charges via USB. You would need to get the now discontinued 360 wireless adapter

    Any Xbox one controller will connect via USB, Bluetooth, or the Xbox wireless adapter. You need to use USB or the Xbox adapter for headset support

    Trouble with my Xbox 360 Wireless Controller on my PC

    Hi,

    The Xbox 360 wireless controller won't work with the play and charge kit on it's own on a PC. The Controller always remains wireless, it can't be changed to a wired controller. To use a 360 wireless controller you'll need an Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver.
    Microsoft no longer make these, but it is possible to buy a third party receiver, although installing them can be troublesome.

    The Play and charge can be used with the PC, but only to charge the controller. The driver is only designed to automatically sync the controller to the Gaming receiver.

    Only the Xbox One controller can be turned into a wired controller with an Xbox One Play and Charge, or a standard USB to Micro USB cable.

    Xbox (Beta) App on Windows 10 with Xbox 360 controller?

    Yes it is possible I know this from first hand experience I have a wired xbox 360 controller and use it to play ALL of my games on my PC including when streaming my xbox One to my PC I can still play the Xbox One games. It is also plug and play so the
    PC should automatically recognize the controller and it acts (uses the same controller configurations) as if you were playing on the Xbox one.
