Ok never once in my life used a controller for pc so figured i would give it a try. I plugged my wired 360 controller in via usb. Windows detected it and installed drivers. But the game will not recognize it. What do i need to do to get it to work?

Thanks in advance

Did you go in the config tool? By default gamepad is disabled and you have to setup your bindings manually. At least I had to.

Sorry then I don't know, it might be specific to that controller :( I got a logitec Dual-Action and didn't have any trouble.

Ok thanks. I unplugged it out of the usb and plugged it back in. It said it successfully downloaded the drivers for plug and play 360 controller. Going in the control panel, i am assuming it should show up under game controllers but it is not. If anyone knows what i need to do that would be great.

Running vista 64 if that matters

Are you using a plug and charge controller? If so the PC might recognize it but it'll do nothing but charge it - you will need a wired 360 controller, not the plug and charge, OR a wireless receiver for the wireless controller (don't think they sell those separately nowadays).
