Please help! I have been trying to do this for so long now and I'm wallowing in despair! I just got Xpadder to use my Xbox 360 controller for Planetside 2, and I also downloaded the Microsoft drivers for the controller just in case that was the problem, but even though I can connect the controller to the computer it doesn't recognise it, and the middle button won't light up, sorry if this is a noob question but I couldn't find the answers anywhere...
