Howdy all,

I have spent a few hours googling this and all i get is troll threads returned.

I want to use this http://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/Xbox-360/Messenger-Kit/1544798/
on a windows 7 x64 PC.

I know its possible but the only positive result from google was a "private" service requiring $100 US a year to make it work on PC.

Does anyone have a driver, or want a shot at making one?

Cheers

Chris

Correct;
And the cheap way would be to just buy a Wireless Keyboard / Mouse and use that.

I don't want a wireless controller. I have a USB xbox360 controller i use for Final Fantasy 14 (MMO) and swpping between it and the keyboard is a pain in the ass.

The game is designed for controllers, but you need a keyboard to talk and it makes using hotkeys/battle-menus easier. I thought this game pad would be my Saviour. Im glad i didn't buy one before i googled for drivers! 

This is all about convenience and a better experience. I can function with the keyboard, i just don't want to. I should point out that if anyone knows another controller offering this type of functionality i'd be interested.
