I need a gamepad/controller for W2K... Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm starting to install games on the machine I just built running W2K with all suggested updates/service packs.

 

I need some suggestions for controllers to play games. I heard whispers of people getting the Xbox 360 PC controller to function, but I couldn't find conclusive information.

 

I would LOVE an Xbox 360 gamepad, but I am more than happy to use anything that works well. Wireless possibly?

 

The game I am targeting is Halo: Combat Evolved.  I figured someone around these parts would have experience in this area.

To my knowledge the original xbox controller has a special male plug. Also to my knowledge the Xbox 360 controller will not natively work. I did a little bit of reading on it. It has me troubled. I'd have to buy a controller anyways online because I have no friends around here with a wired controller.

Yep, an adapter (or stripping the original cable and soldering to it a USB connector) is needed:

If you want to use a XBOX 360 you can try this derivative project:

or this one (Japanese page by our friend Backwingcat you'll need some patience and Google Translate):

The actual download page is dead, but the new one should be this one now:

Afterglow Xbox wired controllers work for both regular and 360 is what I use on my pc for gaming and they are really inexpensive but fairly sturdy.

I saw the afterglow controllers at best buy yesterday. Was it plug and play for you on Windows 2000?
