I do not play too many games but there is one on the windows machine that I recently got that has me hooked. Although it needs a controller.
I have a USB game controller from Logitech but it is horrible. D pad likes doing diagonals when I want to move in one direction. The analog sticks are not balanced, when the sticks are centered, windows reports they are off center, and I cannot seem to fix that.
I also have these lovely PlayStation 3 Dual Shock 3 controllers that are mostly sitting idle. I thought it would be a fairly simple matter to get these hooked up to and running on my Win 7 64Bit machine. A good bunch of hours later and I’m giving up.
Sometimes as a programmer I wish I knew a bit about device driver programming. Maybe I could figure out what the deal is with these controllers.
