Controller alternatives

You can find the Logitech Rumblepad 2 for dirt cheap at places ...

Xbox 360 controller is good as well but way more expensive.

Another alternative is a PS2 Dual Shock controller with PS2/USB converter

    Cheers. Do you have experience of using any of these contollers, and do you have a personal favourite?

    I'm a little reticent to buy another Logitech, since I imagine the Rumblepad is just a Dual Action with even more components to go wrong.

    XBox 360 controller - do these not need an adaptor? My local game store was selling Xbox360 to USB converters? (At least, I THINK it was XBox360 to USB, but maybe it was XBox to USB... :oops: ) Also, does windows recognise them?

    I'm reluctant to use adaptors as all the reviews I've read of them say they are poo (axis "flickering" etc).

    Looks like I can get an Xbox360 controller! Yay!
  3. I bought it! See

    I just bought one - see:

    To answer my own question - it has 4 shoulder buttons. Two are "buttons" and 2 are "triggers" but the triggers work just like buttons in ProEvo (only game I've tested so far) even though the Windows GameController applet calls it the z-axis.
  4. I have been using an XBOX360 controller on my pc for about a week. It works really well in the couple of games that I have played, NFS: MW and SC: CT, whereas my Saitek P2500 controller didn't work with SC. The only problem that I have had is that there is absolutely no rumble :cry: with the controller. I hope that Microsoft releases new drivers soon that take advantages of the force feedback.
