    Why dont we just start: CONTEST: Xbox Chatpad Driver Challenge thread in http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/hardware-development/ section? Do we even need a forum? We should use CONTEST so that if we want to do this for something else, people know to look out for the contest words at the beginning of the thread.

    We can link back to this thread. People can send donations to [email protected] and I can keep a running tally at the beginning of the thread by editing my post.

    Does someone want to start the thread and explain the contest and I will post just after?

    not sure what it would be titled... i dont think that matters a whole lot. "Xbox Chatpad Driver Challenge" i suppose? maybe "Down with MS Engineers Contest"?

    ps- i think it would be a good idea for everyone to agree, that if by chance ms does release the drivers themselves- or say no winner can actually be named for whatever reason- the prize money will default to a charity. it would be a good idea in case of the unkown... (maybe 90% can go to charity, and mp3car keeps 10% for their trouble/cost)

    Thank god mines silver. LOL.

    I personally would NOT like to have the whole controller w/chatpad in my truck. As you said too bulky and two handed operation and lack of function keys. But who says I would be using it to troubleshoot or repair?

    I WOULD like to take it apart and install it in such a fashion that people would go "Dude is that a 360 controller and a chatpad?"

    Of All People you were the last I expected to get the "think outside the box" speech... Im not mad, just disappointed..
    LOL, I know shame on me. I think sometimes I get so tense from my install with all the headaches that its causing, that I forget that the controller can actually be made into something else. In fact that is an awesome idea. Maybe the controller can be modified to use the analog sticks like the space navigator thingy. I just happen to have a f#*ked up wired controller laying around after my puppy at the controls. *Bad puppy, bad bad puppy*. I was playing and next thing you know it said controller disconnected. I was like what the h3ll. i look down for the connector piece (they come loose easily) and saw the wire was all eaten up. He was just laying there like he did nothing wrong. The analog stick could be embedded into something, then use Xpander to assign keys to the controller. I can maybe even use the controller with the sony audio controls I bought. *Gives SjLucky a big kiss* Thank you for opening my eyes, I see the light. Although I still don't see the pint of the chat pad, LMFAO, even if you scale down the controller, its still kind of bulky.

    I'll hook you up. Toss me an addy. I'll get my buddy to get me one when he gets off work and I'll ship it out tomorrow. Got to send off a rma drive anyway.

    Damn 3 yeard old thread. Still no drivers for this thing yet? Without esc it does suck though. Maybe green and orange button could be configured into esc. or the person button? If wireless without the xbox controller then maybe worth it.

    Hey everyone i guess someone may have already noticed this if not I'm going to help everyone a bit

    I recently noticed that the author of the open source Mac OSX driver for the 360 controller claims to have chatpad working on the latest version 0.09

    here's the link
    http://tattiebogle.net/index.php/Pro...ller/OsxDriver

    the deal is that the source is not posted on the website. I'm guessing we can e-mail him and try to take a look. we still have to make it work on windows but oh well. hope somebody ahs luck contacting him. C'mon guys i really really want these drivers

    "ChatPad support in wired controller" - I wonder what the difference would be for the wireless controller? Fantastic news if someone's actually figured it out! And I just donated $25 to the contest...

    I'm tempted to go buy a chatpad and try this out on one of the Mac's at work to see exactly what is working.
