    xbox 360 wireless controller working on steam, but not working on windows games (started...


    Hello,

    I've got windows 10 with the latest update installed, I also have wireless xbox 360 controller.

    It works perfectly fine under Steam but I can't get it working with any of my games run from Xbox app (I've tried Guacamele 2, Gears of War 4, Timespinner).

    I've no idea if that is result of steam changes (it has over taken controller) or anything else.

    Maybe these games needs Xbox one controller ?

    When I run joy.cpl all looks great, however downloaded app "Game Controller Tester" couldn't find mine controller.

    Any ideas what to do, what to check ?

    Thanks

    ***Moved from Windows 10/Devices & drivers***

    Building a Steam box IS sticking with PC. It just means building a PC designed to work with a TV. Windows and a wireless keyboard and a 360 controller fit the bill.

    wireless xbox 360 controller on win10 without reciever

    and what does the connect button do on controller?
    The connect button starts the pairing process with a Xbox 360 console or the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows.

    The Xbox 360 controller uses a proprietary wireless protocol, and NOT Bluetooth. So the standard wireless devices in your computer can't work with the Xbox 360 wireless controller.

    You absolutely definitely need the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows if you wish to use your Xbox 360 controller on your PC.

    Make sure you do NOT get the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Xbox One controllers, as they won't work with Xbox 360 controllers.

    Also if you try to use a Play & Charge USB cable on your Xbox 360 controller, this will also not work, as the Play & Charge cable ONLY carries power, but does NOT transmit controller data.

    So if you don't want to buy a wireless receiver, your only options are to buy a dedicated wired Xbox 360 controller (that has a non-removable USB cord attached), or get a Xbox One controller with Bluetooth functionality.

    Will Xbox 360 slim controller work with Windows XP?

    Xbox 360 controller on Windows 10

    The Xbox 360 controllers need a special wireless connector to work with Windows. The 360 controllers, different from the Xbox One controllers, do not send input signals over the charge and play cable to the computer or console, those are only for charging
    the batteries in the controller.

    You would need
    this accessory for it to work on a PC
    or buy a specifically a wired Xbox 360 controller.
