I think so. I managed to connect the PS3 Dualshock pad on the PC, and the Xbox one has a similar procedure (if i remember well).

It worked with GPL, so you should have no probs.

You need the SCP Input Wrapper, and Xpadder if you have problems when mapping the buttons.
Search for a tutorial on Google, i think there are lot of them.

Good luck :)

P.S.: If you see something about a software called MotionInJoy, avoid it, it's rubbish and probably ruin your computer, go for SCP Input Wrapper :thumbup:

Xbox 360 pad works flawlessly, I play with that. If I may, I suggest you to upgrade to a Thustmaster GPX, it has xbox 360 license so it is recognized by all games as 360 pad but it has longer triggers which make brakes and throttle easier to control and 16 bit drivers so less dead zone and more precise steering Wheel. It us thought For Racing games and I get better lap Times with that. 360 pad works no problem ;) you don't need any external driver for the 360 pad!!

I also drive the Xbox 360 pad and it works fine. I even prefer it to the Thrustmaster Ferrari GT Experience but that is my very personal view.
If you have a look at GPL Rank you will find that some other guys are using a pad.
Be sure to use the Windows-version of the Xbox 360 pad. It comes with a small CD containing the drivers for a PC.

Hi Henry
I use it since 2007 because it is very comfortable compared to the expensive wheel I never got used to, cause of lack of time. If you want some advice in detail tell me.

PS: By the way: Did anyone succeed to split the throttle (I use LT) / brake (RT) function in a way they can be used synchronically and with opposing effects, e.g. by using XBCD? Up to now I use these functions at one single axis.

I was able to split the triggers into two separate axis with XBCD, but it was a while ago so I can't remember exactly what I did.  I think you are supposed to install XBCD, configure the controller the way you want in the XBCD setup menu, and then uninstall the windows driver for the controller and install the XBCD driver.

Spent some hours in a new trial but failed again. Could not apply sticks and triggers to the right functions. Thank you anyway. Luckily the standard MS Driver works fine even though it allows not splitting.
