Quite new to this forum. I'm an aspiring professional online poker player and I have recently just bought a windows 8 laptop to run certain HUD's on. I also heard you can hook up a wired xbox controller to your PC and use it.
I looked on the windows drivers page and could not see a windows 8 driver, so I installed one of the others and it seemed to install it all fine:
My light is holding a solid green light and under 'my devices' in the control panel it is detected and says 'This device is working properly.'
I've tried using it on the PC and specific applications (Pokerstars) but I'm having no luck. Nothing is happening. I wanted to know if it was Pokerstars or if it was the controller - is there any way I can test the controller on another part of the laptop? Just to see if it's the controller or my programme.
Thank you guys, any suggestions are welcome!
