    Default xbox 360 wireless controller with USB to go

    Has anyone used a wireless Xbox 360 controller with the play and charge kit with the USB to go? Should work like a wired controller right? I ask because I have 4 wireless controllers and a few of those play an charge kit's. Seeing if I really need to buy a wired controller to play games like Shadowrun. thanks!

    No, won't work. The play and charge cable only charges the controller. It still is a wireless controller even when plugged in.

    There's a wireless USB dongle for PC's that connects to 360 controllers. That may work...

    Looks like that does work according to something I found on the net. The adapter is anywhere from $10-$20. I think I can score a used wired controller for that much.

    Why not just use a PS3 control they work with just an app on the market.

    Because I play 360 and don't really like the ps3 layout. I ordered the adapter off eBay today to use a wireless 360 controller.

    Please share what app to which you are referring. The six axis app specifically states you must be rooted.

    you don't need an app to make the ps3 controller work.

    just plug the ps3 controller usb cable into the usb-otg cable and then the usb-otg cable into your nexus 7. works great! i've been playing dead trigger and shadowgun all day.

    Yeah, been playing Shadow Gun and Dead Trigger with USB OTG. You need to be rooted and use the six axis app if you want to use bluetooth.

    I got the adapter and while it works with the wireless 360 controller, it only works on certain games. Games like shadowgun and Dead Trigger have this odd thing where the camera just spins even when your not touching the controller! You also can't map the keys like the wired controllers. There is a work around but it's not what I would call easy and requires root access. I think I'm going to break down and buy a wired controller. Seems much easier.

    Broke down and bought a wired xbox 360 controller. Works great out of the box. No app or workaround required. Games like Shadowrun and Dead Trigger allow you to map the keys in the app settings. Awesome!

    I got the ps3 controller to work wired with a OTG cable. Its awesome on gameboid because you can trigger map but has anyone tried to use it on Modern Combat 3? I cannot seem to make it work or map the buttons. I know sixaxis app will allow it but do not want to root my nexus

    What otg cable/ app are you using for the wired 360 controller?

    I have a Acer a500 and that has a real usb spot and though that I can connect a ps3 controller to it. I've tried Xbox and you have to have a cable that lets you connect it to a PC.

    No app needed to connect.

    I have both a wired and wireless set up for my 360 controllers. Also got the micro usb to otg adapter. I do not want to root because im still a lil new to the geek side of things ive bought several games and been trying my controller out all day and yet ive not found anything to work? Is there an app needed to start off.. ive read loads of quotes and watched a ton of youtube and not seen any apps needed to start and bought all the needed equipment. Can anyone help?

    It's mapping the camera to the triggers instead of the second analog stick. I emailed the developer for Demolition, Inc. They said they hadn't tested it with 360 controller but they would look into it. I would recommend you also email the developers of the apps you're having issues with so they know it's not working and will hopefully fix it.

    If you want to attempt playing with the controller until then hold the triggers in half way to stop the rotating. Squeeze and release tension to adjust camera.

    I have an Xbox 1 controller which I modded with a USB connector, and that has the same issue, seems a little odd that a wired Xbox 360 controller is mapped differently to a wireless one using a USB adapter. I opted for this third-party bluetooth PS3 controller* instead which works nicely in Dead Trigger and GTA3 both wired and wirelessly using the sixaxis controller app.

    *It doesn't actually look like the pictures given, but there are a couple of customer pictures that show the actual controller I got.

    How did you map the controller for dead trigger? I a, having Trouble getting the aim to work what axis did you choose? Can you post a screenshot of the mapping? Thanks

    Androidsim has a pretty easy guide to setup 360 controller. Note that 360 has some problems with some emulators. My best solution is using bluetooth controller like the WII.
