PC Joystick Drivers for OFFLINE PC?


#1

I have a PC in the middle of nowhere with no wifi, or internet. It has a 2 player control panel wired up using ZD Encoders, but sometimes the gang would like to play 4 player x-men, simpsons, etc,
Is there a place I can download all of these drivers with install for the windows xp os? It sounds silly, I know, but I was just curious.
Maybe something like XPadder would work ok for adding 2 usb sticks?

Isn’t the PS/PS3 encoders are generic Hid class devices which are PnP?

I don’t know, I know some are only recognized as PS3 sticks, and I know some xbox sticks will be seen, and identified, but when it can’t connect to the internet, it abandons the install.

If all you’re doing is MAME might want to check out a Linux based USB stick that you can update at a place with internet and then plop into the offline PC and boot off. Linux recognizes tons of controllers easy.
