I don't know if anyone is a gamer here, but if anyone reading this owns Aquaria (a cheap game on Steam), I wanted to verify something. Can you use the XBCD driver for Windows (existing third-party 360 pad driver) on your system? If so, can you verify that the joysticks etc. show up under the Windows control panel, and you can see them moving, but the joysticks and buttons don't work in Aquaria itself?
I want to verify that since I am planning on using Aquaria as my XInput test game, and my current theory is that it only supports XInput, and thus the official drivers work but the XBCD ones don't. I think I tested it myself, or maybe the .jp ones or whatever, but I want to make sure.
Also, I should rate my progress in "number of times I have bluescreen'd Vista 64". Up to two so far! At least it lets me know when I'm doing something I shouldn't be...
*edit* Games from this list should work too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_XInput_games
I am just wanting to verify that a 360 controller will NOT work in one of those games with XBCD, but WILL work in the same game with the official driver.
