Replacing a mouse with a Gamepad on PC (analogue controlle..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.games.discussion (More info?)

Hi there,

quick question, if i was to purchase a gamepad for use on a pc which is going
to be in lounge where its not easy to use a mouse when playing games is it
possible to use a digital/analogue gamepad and games like first person
shooters can be controlled with the analogue sticks rather than the mouse?

Can anyone suggest a good controller with good battery life and wireless,
being PC i suppose there isn't really a standarD? But i presume directx
standardises this

A little confused

Any ideas? thanks

ian

    There is a program called "Joystick 2 Mouse", with that you can control the cursor with an joystick/gamepad.

    But i don't now, if it works in-game.
