well.. that's the one I've used.. it's the only one available after all.

 

Sorry didn't check the link, but you typed unofficial :p.

 

Edit: seems there are quite a lot of people experiencing problems and posting in Major's comments.

 

Some are suggesting updating Win7 and installing these patches:

 

Update for User-Mode Driver Framework version 1.11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2685813)

Update for Kernel-Mode Driver Framework version 1.11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2685811)

 

Do you have them installed already / system up-to-date?

When it comes to controller drivers, unofficial generally means community made :p

 

These drivers are the official ones provided by Microsoft. Major Nelson is the Director of Programming at MS/XBox. He posted the drivers to his blog as part of the announcement of their availability. They are the same drivers which you'll download if you plug in a controller / search for updates from MS.

 

Have you tried the two patches I mentioned in my edit?

Not sure one is available, but anything that supports the Xbox 360 controller should also support the X1's (Y) You can use Steam's search for controller enabled games here

 

Glad you got it sorted.
