[CONTROLERS] TM2 - Definite solution for Xbox 360 Win7?

Post by 4GEE » 17 Aug 2011, 18:36

I was finally able to get my hands on some Windows 7 drivers that got my left/right triggers detecting and working properly (I can use them at the same time no problem so the old problem is gone), but now my left stick for steering is going offline for no reason at random moments as I drive... I now wonder if it's actually TM2 that's causing that problem...

Anyone succeeded in using their 360 controller (and Windows 7) for TM2 with everything working properly?

I'm a longtime PGR/NFS player on the 360 so this setup is kind of a must for me :P

Working fine for me. Using the official drivers and Windows 7 32-bit.

Just go to the input options, then set the right trigger as "analog acceleration". The left trigger will automatically be set as an analog brake.

It's working for me right now with a wireless 360 controller in Win7 Ult 64. I'll post if it starts screwing up. Menu functionality is a bit touchy though.

Yeah, navigating through the menu is really painful using the XBOX 360 controller. I hope this gets fixed. It would be great if the final game detects the XBOX 360 controller and automatically adjusts the input settings.

I can't seem to be able to do that. My triggers are only effective when I put them in the Accelerate slot and Brake slot, but not in the "Accelerate and Brake (Analog)" slot. How come?

I'm using the Win7 Ult 64 driver too I think. Here's a screenshot of what I've got. (sorry about the bit of french in there :)) http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6316/99840850.png

Why do you want to use the triggers? You understand that trackmania does not actually hava analog throttle and brake right? They're either full on or full off. Just do the sane thiung and map A to gas and X to brake... much easier on your fingers.
