The USB direct charger and the PC

Post by nickyf1 on Sun 11 Jul 2010 - 11:14

My long wait to get a wheel on my PC sims may be over... I just discovered the cheaper possible alternative to the wireless reciever, the USB direct charger.

Now, if anyone has one of these, I have two questions. Firstly, can you plug the direct charger into the PC, install drivers for the controller and then use the controller on PC games? Secondly, if this is possible, would anyone know if the Microsoft Wireless Wheel would work with the USB Direct Charge thing (the wheel does have a battery pack on the side, but it uses power from the mains supply for overall power + force feedback, this would surely just render the Battery pack a simple connection point?)

if by the USB Direct Charger, your talking about the 'Plug & Play' charger for the 360 controllers right? i once connected my 360 controller to my pc with the play & charge cable, my pc recognized it, and i was up and running in a matter of seconds. idk if any of that info is useful. the only pc gams i have though that benefit from a controller is the SNES-rom.

I dunno what your trying to explain here, but I have both the plug and play kit for my controller that turns it into a wired controller basically and charges it as well. I tried it ahwile ago and it didn't work. Plus you can't plug it into the wheel. I also have the Wireless Adapter for the pc that you can use the controllers wirlessly. It works great but only Games for Windows games have rumble and the wheel has zero force feedback.
