      It could show him playing, and then say "well not everyone can be Robert, for the rest we have the new Adaptive Controller"...

      Just a thought!

      • Sticky notes bug with XAC and JoyToKey

        If using a XAC d-pad for cursor movement (remapping using the very popular JoyToKey remapping software) you'll notice that Sticky notes behaves badly when you push UP (to simulate cursor up).

        This is because even without JoyToKey, using the XAC or any joystick type device is picked up by Sticky Notes, but UP for some reason is mapped to the TAB key. Meaning you can access sticky notes, but can never simulate an UP key press. Very frustrating, and renders Sticky Notes nearly useless for such users.

        Here's a little on XAC being used as a mouse device to show…

        • xbox adaptive controller - programmable buttons that can use keyboard/mouse inputs

          I bought the xbox adaptive controller for the pdp one handed controller peripheral. I would like to be able to program the buttons using keyboard/mouse inputs. I have limited abilities in my left hand so the one handed controller is perfect. i intended to use the XAC combined with a mouse. The current game i am playing wont allow the use of a controller and a mouse at the same time. -- i have determined it's the controllers "imacontroller" tag and using "controllerbuttons" conflicts with the mouse/keyboard settings.

          Example configuration:
          UP: W
          Down: S
          Left: A
          Right: D

          Button 1:…

          • make a new joystick design

            i have extremely limited hand movement, so a retro arcade style joystick would be amazing for the xbox adaptive controller. however, make it a single usage controller, just directional. you already have buttons to adapt to every other button on the regular xbox controller, all except the directional arrows

              Because of your live outage I can’t use services that I pay for separate from Xbox live. There is no reason I have to be signed in to use Hulu or Netflix. I feel I should be credited for not being able to use either of these services because you all are having issues. I pay good money for Hulu, Netflix, and Spotify and because of the way you all set your system up I have to miss multiple days of my subscription. PS4 doesn’t have this issue.

For me I am forced to be prone and lying down 24/7, this makes gaming very uncomfortable and I can not do the things I wish I could do, this device might help, but there are so many types of ways of using it, I might need help figuring out the…

I am a quadriplegic with partial use of my arms, but not function in my wrists or hands. I LOVE to game on my Xbox and have been loyal to the product since its inception, and especially after my wreck. I am able to play a lot of games, however the ones that require 3 buttons to be used at the same time have been off limits. Even racing games, that require the trigger to be held aren't playable for me, even…

                          • One handed controller.

                            My step daughter only has the use of her left arm. She can play extremely well despite her disability, but still struggles. She doesn't like the co-pilot add on. She likes to be in control. A controller capable of being comfortably welded with one hand would be ideal.

                                      I had an idea that would not only help with PR but also help the Halo fan base. There are many players like me with disabilities that prevent us from doing well online. For example, I have something called dysgraphia. It means I have trouble with fine motor control from handwriting to, having my reticle be on a moving target, to head shots. Million of Americans have this especially children. I put a lot of time into learning the strategies for your various Halo games. After many years of practice I can hit the enemy body with difficulty but…
