X-Box Controller modification to work on PC/Mac
Well the problem is the driver doesn't install because "Win10 needs to have signed INF files. And because Inf can't be signed directly - it needs to have ".cat" file that contains digital signature."So...-Press Start-Click on Power-Hold down Shift and press Restart-Navigate to Troubleshoot -> Advanced options -> Startup Settings and press Restart-Wait for Windows to restart and when prompted press 7 for Disable driver signature enforcement and wait for Windows to come up-Install XBCD and allow it to install the driverIf it's still not workingDevice Manager-> Unknown device-> update driver-> search my machine -> C:\Program Files (x86)\XBCD\Driver
So yeah at first I wasn't planning to do the 2 part to link back at the Xbox via USB.But I had the same problem as you (seemingly not working, generic usb hub) so I was wondering if that was a hardware or software problem, as it's my first time doing this.After reading this guide I did the second part (xbox connector to female usb) and tested the modified controller on the xbox: seemed to work well, so I think the link is all ok, so I guess it's a software problem.XBCD driver is a bit of a pain it seems.
So, I went through with this, though, since I already had two spares of the xbox plug part but no controllers for them I simply stripped down one and added the USB like so. However, the controller I'm connecting is an old Acteck joystick, now that I'm done, the acteck software doesn't recognize the controller, but Windows 10 still detects it as an "XBOX gamepad" however, it tells me there was a problem installing the driver. I then go to install the one you provide with the same results.The printer and hardware section recognizes it only as a "generic usb hub".Did I messed up, or is this a software issue?
worked for me
Anyone have any experience with this under Windows 10 before I get to work on this mod?
