Hello Barry,

I think the option to reassign buttons on the xbox controller will vary from game to game. Eg on Fifa 11 you can reassign the right side thumb operated buttons (for passing, shooting, tackling etc) - at least by shuffling functions around between those 4 buttons. Not sure on whether other buttons can be reassigned (worth checking), eg one of the right index finger buttons is usually for running faster so worth retaining. The D pad can be used for tactics and the game can be played without it.

Perhaps pc games are generally more versatile for remapping?

Marcus.

Subject: xbox problems

Dear all
I'm working with a 8 year old lad with CP who has dexterity issues with his xbox controller.  A logical step would be to use an arcade stick to give him a larger, fixed joystick & bigger, wider - spaced buttons.  But that means moving from a controller with 2 joysticks, 1 Dpad & umpteen buttons to one with one joystick & 6(?) buttons.

Can anyone tell me whether xbox handles this sensibly?
Eg is it intelligent enough to automatically use the inputs that are available?
Can controls be reassigned on xbox?

We don't want to go to the extent of a fully adapted controller from eg Broadened Horizons because of his age.
