I really need help. I bought my son a new computer and he really wants to use his 360 to play minecraft. When I plug in the controller the driver seems there and the controller is recognized and I can bring up and play xbox live without a problem. But minecraft pc does not even seem to recognize that the controller is there at all.....please help!
The (new) Windows 10 Beta version (aka, Win10) does not allow mods. Both are written by Mojang. Basically Win10 is like PE, (and can play with PE players) but it is for computers, phones, and tablets running Windows 10. It's the first multi-platform, multi-version we've ever had. It's much faster and smoother (due to using C++) than the java version.... which is why java players wish it was the java's replacement. (It's not).
ok great, so with Java, what can I do to make the xbox 360 controllers work? I have windows 10 as my platform and the drivers are there, is there a program I can use to make it work? The reason being I am setting it up to have two players on two seperate accounts and two screens but 1 CPU thanks again for your help!!!
You can't run 2 versions of the program on 1 CPU, much less 2 different programs, at the same time on 1 CPU. There's a huge difference between each person having their own program (or the same program) running on each screen, and "multiplayer" where 2 people are playing the same game. Either way, players won't get their own screen unless 2 computers are involved.
The closest you can get to what you want is using 2 computers and both play the same MC version using multiplayer over your LAN or Wi-Fi. (Or, if you have a console, play split-screen.) (No, neither the Win10 nor the java version do split-screen).
