The problem is that instead of that one is treated to the way in Windows to use a manufacturer-own wrapper from Microsoft, you can only with some third-party programs XInput games can play without an expensive XBox controllers.
Since you but over time accumulates games that support both, or presuppose in recent games XInput devices, I previously had to resort to MotioninJoy to get playable alongside the older PC games with newer controllers.
Here Speedlink has clearly recognized the gap in the market, and with XEOX and given here Torid controller provides the optimum solution:
Not only does the Torid controller was designed as a primary PC controller, the steps between the two modes "XInput" and "Direct Input" by keeping the Speedlink button (until it blinks) the main mode changes.
Without seeing in the Control Panel must, the flashing will return to the normal display when the new mode is active.
When the direct input mode of the sub-mode of the controller changes by pressing the Speed Link button.
On the PS3, there are clearly 2 losses:
1. The Speedlink / Home button can not turn on the PS3 due to the connection.
2. The buttons are not labeled with triangular circle Kreutz and square
But it provides the controller error-free operation, which I have already tested with a game.
On PC in XInput mode, the controller works entirely as it should, especially for games that are designed for the XBox layout.
It also falls on particularly positive that the USB receiver is built so pleasantly compact so that it:
1. can disappear already under many a front connection panel (in my case I can easily XilenceX1 Close the bezel above)
2. When the PS3 controller also does not protrude beyond the edge, and thus also when connecting securely stowed.
When the automatic shutdown of the controller of the USB adapter is nevertheless still active, so the heart no sudden disconnection comes about in the game where you have to finish the game only once, just so that the controller works again.
This would have only the controllers' via mini USB cable (one is included in delivery), recharging.
The rubber linings on the sides (the image of the Black controller here clearly framed by the red lines), counteract a slipping.
Only if you have larger hands, the controller occurs a little too compact.
Processing also looks very solid, so advance equal to the impression that this controller a will accompany many years, it enjoys the thrifty gamer who does have a high demand, but does not want to take up Microsoft's expensive OEM controllers (In my case also , makes them very unpopular with me because of the unnecessary XInput forced many games, the Microsoft).
Finally, I give each a buy recommendation for this controller, regardless of whether you buy it in black, white or green.
