Title: Controllers for XFPS
Post by: Petricore on 07:33 PM - 01/24/08
I am trying to find out if the Joytech or any other brand X controller will work with the xfps ? I cant find a used wired controller that is the old model, what am I to do ?

I bought the $25 joytech controller (wired) from Walmart yesterday and it works with the Xfps... i have a generic keyboard and a G5 mouse (bought today).

I have a ms controller ending in 007 (cuz im james bond bitches haha) and that worked, even though I was told it would not work.

However, when I ordered everying to build my xim, I went by EB games/gamestop and bought a 24$ controller it was I believe gamestop brand  but that worked fine. I *heard* that Guitar hero controller works too, but since I don't mess with fake guitar playing (I have 4 real guitars 1 acoustic and 3 electric thank you) I cannot validate that claim.

Hey no bashing the GH series, it was a good series still III came out and Hermonix got booted out of the scene, but now RocK BanD is the champion!
I have 2 acoustics too and 1 electric but I still enjoy the game(s); And most of my friends that play "real" instruments like it too. I'm sure if you tried it out you would play it too! The sounds are great and Rock Bands Drum feature gives me something to try out, that's closest to playing a real instrument as you can get on a game (I believe).

I have played GH 2 and 3 and Rock band, I can do most songs on medium, and some on hard.

Rock band I can do all drum parts on Hard, but expert I have issues with. The guitar parts I can do on medium.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm stoked to get this working, and if the XIM2 comes out with less lag, I will ebay it all up and make a new one :D

The XIM2 will probably be to complex for anyone to make, you will have to buy it from derektm :)
