ok for the boot of the machine, it sees the xbox controlers pluged in, its a hot plug system. says something along the lines of no drivers. after searching for hours im still empty handed with a xbox controller that wants to be controling tux racer. as for the mouse, its working enough to call it a mouse, but the scroll wheel doesnt do anything. ive tryed zaxsis mapping or what ever and that didnt make a difrence. thanks for the help in advanced =)
