496841 Microsoft Chatpad Drivers For PC

-[Taken from [url removed, login to view] ] below is an excerpt from the link above. Make sure to read all my project decription below before checking out the links, as there are import notes marked as numbers. This project is for the creation of a driver for the microsoft chatpad for the pc. There is currently a contest in which a purse of $595(and rising fast!) is up for grabs for the completion of these drivers. please email me with any questions. quick link are at the bottom of the page.

1)please note that the link above will state the following

----------------------------------------------------------------------

'ANNOUNCEMENT!- We have our first set of drivers posted!

Gafblizzard has been working feverishly on making drivers that fit above and beyond the criteria of this contest. There is still some polishing to do, and only wired controllers are supposed for now, but this is by far the best set of drivers that have ever been available for the xbox chatpad inside windows.

We plan on a week or two more of testing and polishing, and then hopefully put this to a vote. If we, the participants, agree by majority that these drivers are fit enough to stand as a practical option to use the xbox chatpad in windows, then GafBlizzard will be the winner.

Here is the Getting Started page he wrote. Please read this first before installing. [url removed, login to view]

------------------------------------------------------------

2) I have been in contact with Gafblizzard via email and he is no longer working on the drivers. here is a qoute

"I'm afraid I have not been working on them lately. :( Life was busy,

and is not too great right now.

I'm full of excuses.

Thanks for the info on the startup thing. I just try to be wary of

what I try and recommend on startup since it kind of circumvents the

Windows security stuff and ideally I would have drivers signed

eventually.

I doubt I ever tested with hibernation, so my driver probably doesn't

handle that properly.

-Josh"

3) As you can see he is not interested in the completion of this project anymore, and there is still lots of work to do. The current Drivers are very unstable, have installation issues, cause crashes, and are plagued with many issues. Also they are not signed so you have to manually go into disable driver signature before starting windows everytime to use them! I Do not believe that he will ever finish these drivers, so the purse money is still up for grabs!

Also very importantly he is currently only working on drivers for the wired controller, there is a high demand for wireless chatpad drivers.

If someone can post a working beta driver, or even post on the forum that you are going to be working hard on a driver superior to Gafblizzard, or supported with the wireless controller. The contest fund will not go over to gafblizzard, and the purse will go up exponentially!

Below is the official webpage to the contest, here is an excerpt

This is the official thread to the MP3Cardotcom Xbox Chatpad Driver Challenge. While MP3Car is not responsible for any liabilities that might occur, they have authorized this event to take place and we are all extremely excited that they have done so.

TOTAL PURSE AS OF 11/10/2010- $595

Thanks to: mp3Car ($25 and paypal fees), Nick Yankaitis ($50), Kevin Bradshaw ($50), Paul Rimmer ($25), Scribelife ($25), Kevinmind88 ($25), Miyagin ($20), Tidder ($100), in order of donation. Rosa ($20) Gazbit ($125) Naylia (25) Churchill Navigation ($100)

The Goal- To create an open-souce, fully functional set of drivers for the Xbox 360 Controller to utilize the Chatpad peripheral accurately to work on Windows computers. There is a Paypal donation link provided, and the winner of this contest will get the full purse. MP3Car has voluntarily gestured to start the bank with $25, and they have pledged to pay any associated paypal fees; this ensures the winner will get the entire donated amount.

The Rules -

1. Driver must be open source.

2. Driver must install in windows XP, Vista OR Win7 (support for only ONE operating system is now OK).

3. Xbox Chatpad must work like a regular keyboard in Windows.

4. Driver must install along with or completely replace the original Xbox drivers, and must not effect the original function of the controller in any way. This can be accomplished by re-writing the original drivers, or having a one-click accessible add-on activate on top of the working original drivers when wanted.

5. The first member to post their own original working drivers in this thread will be the winner. This winner must be accepted by the majority of the participants, for quality of product and authenticity of workmanship.

Lately I have started playing games on my Home Theater PC. Sitting on my couch and playing video games on my 42" tv is absolutely great. It's comfortable, the screen's big, I can kick my feet up. All around excellent. To play games I use a Logitech Rumblepad 2 for playing the game and a Logitech diNovo Mini for communicating in the games. Pick up, put down, pick up, put down...over and over. This for me is the biggest issue I have with gaming on my HTPC. I've also never really been interested in the lap board with keyboard and mouse. I like my controllers!

Enter the Xbox 360 Gamepad with Chatpad - A controller, a great one at that, that has a snap in thumb keyboard for typing. It's amazing anytime I use it on the Xbox.

The Catch - While the Xbox 360 Gamepad works great on the PC, there is ZERO support from Microsoft for the Chatpad. People all over the internet have pushed on Microsoft in every public forum imaginable, but all that ever happens is one division at Microsoft points at another as having responsibility for the development. Someone even wrote a Macintosh OS X driver for it, and there is still nothing working for the PC.

Beyond playing games on your HTPC, this also becomes an alternative style remote for Windows MC or other app. With great wireless range, and no line of sight required, you could locate your HTPC in a closet or cabinet and still surf the web, or just use the Dpad and buttons to quickly navigate around. Analog sticks can be remapped to mouse movement, all of which makes this a very unique and flexible alternative to you standard mouse/keyboard combo.

To that end, the folks over at [url removed, login to view] have started a collection fund to support the rewarding of the first person to develop a PC driver for the Xbox 360 Chatpad. Today I pledged $25 via PayPal, and if this is something you think you'd find useful I encourage you to go do the same. Who knows, our very own Mikinho might be the one to solve the problem.

The Goal - To create an open-souce, fully functional set of drivers for the Xbox 360 Controller to utilize the Chatpad peripheral accurately to work on Windows computers. There is a Paypal donation link provided, and the winner of this contest will get the full purse. MP3Car has voluntarily gestured to start the bank with $25, and they have pledged to pay any associated paypal fees; this ensures the winner will get the entire donated amount.
