How to set up an Xbox 360 controller with the Oculus Rift

The one controller and the 360 controller from Xbox are equally treated by XInput, so you can use the both controllers for your Oculus Rift. So you shouldn't worry if you want to change your controller, or maybe use the old one you already have. This are the steps to setup up your Xbox 360 controller, the process is same as the one for the Xbox one controller, you just need to choose do you prefer the wireless or the wired mode:



1. Wireless mode Set up
⦁ First connect your USB wireless adapter to any available port for USB
⦁ If you have problem with your USB port use the USB extender, that is already included. This way your wireless will go smooth without interference.
⦁ Make the connection with the wireless adapter and the USB extender and then plug in the USB extender in the port for USB.
⦁ Put the AA batteries in the battery bay of the controller.
⦁ Press the Xbox button on the controller until you see that the lights are on.
⦁ On your wireless adapter you will see a sync button, press it and then hold it for a little while so you can pair the controller with the wireless adapter.
⦁ The light you will see on your Xbox controller shows the pairing status, this way you will know if the Xbox controller and the wireless adapter are successfully paired
⦁ If the light flashes slowly then the pairing is not successful
⦁ If the light flashes rapidly than the pairing is still in progress
⦁ If the light is solid than you are finished
If the region you live in has any kind of restriction for using wireless adapters, than with your Rift you will get a micro- USB cable



2. Wired mode Set up
You can connect you Xbox 360 Controller to your PC without the need of batteries by using your micro USB cable. The cable is not included in the box. If you decide to use your controller in wired mode than be aware that this way your movements in virtual reality are going to be limited. Do this following steps to setup your Xbox Controller in wired mode:
⦁ Put your micro USB cable into available USB port on your computer
⦁ Wait for couple of seconds for your computer to detect the Xbox drivers
