Hi All,

I just wanted to share with everyone that the drivers @ http://code.google.com/p/chatpad-super-driver/wiki/GettingStarted are working for me and I am able to play FFXIV with the controller + chatpad working.

You must have a wired 360 controller at this point though. Let me know if anyone is interested in setting this up and having trouble.

So far it is working out great :)

awesome! When do you expect this to reach a full version and a version for a wireless?

Thanks for posting KhaneOfRagnarok!

It's good to know this works before I go buy another chatpad. I recently reverted to my wired 360 controller. Sometime you just can't beat the dependability of a wire.

(Thanks again to Furia who explained the use of Calibration = 0.3 in FFXIVconfig.exe to set the joystick input sensitivity.)

These drivers are developed by a fan, so its kind of take what you can get. Currently the drivers are "unsigned" which means you have to boot a special way (press f8 when your BIOS finishes loading) to make them work. This is because there is a fee required to get them signed, which he doesn't have the money to cover. Additionally, I guess the wireless controller operates in an entirely different way than the wired one does, so he would have to rewrite them to make wireless work, but I think he is working on it. You can find out how to get in touch with the developer on that site, he usually responds quickly if you have questions.

Regarding FFXIV specifically: you can configure the controller in the normal manner using the FFXIV config. Once you have these drivers enabled you can toggle the controller joysticks from regular mode to "mouse mode" by pressing the "people icon" on the chatpad. In regular mode they behave just as the controller normally would, in mouse mode, the joysticks move your windows mouse. Also, I added the following bindings inside the chat pad config to help with FFXIV:

CHATPAD_KEY_1 + CHATPAD_GREEN = KEYBOARD_KEY_TAB (so I can auto translate)
CHATPAD_KEY_1 + CHATPAD_ORANGE = KEYBOARD_KEY_ESCAPE (escape is helpful)

Like I said, let me know if anyone tries this out and has any questions :) Good luck and happy adventuring

The unsigned issue only applies to 64-bit versions of Windows.

Here is a good way to install unsigned drivers on win 7.

Windows 7: Installing an unsigned driver


Issue

Windows7 natively blocks unsigned drivers, preventing the installation of these drivers, making the device you want to install useless
We must temporarily disable the signature verification pilots.

Solution

Disable signature verification of drivers

Start Menu /Run, and type the following command:
Quote:
bcdedit /set nointegritychecks ON


Restart the PC and install the unsigned driver.
Note that it is highly recommended to enable the signature verification of drivers.

Start Menu /Run, and type the following command:
Quote:
bcdedit /set nointegritychecks OFF


Restart your PC.

Tried this, while it works to install the driver, you still need to press F8 and start windows with driver signature enforcement off for the drivers to actually work.

A sure fire work around, from what I've read, is to sign the drivers yourself but I don't know how to do it. :P
