I currently use a PS1 controller (Not dual analog either) to play css, and I was curious if the XBox 360 controller or PS1 dual shock work with the game? J

    Yes, a 360 controller will work for the PC. They actually sell packages ready specifically for PC. I saw a few at BestBuy yesterday.

    You can use the wired controllers, but you will need to google for the correct PC drivers.

    I played alot of halo, and to answer the question that actually were on topic:

    Keyboard may be easier for you, but I use the ps1 "D-pad" and the l1/l2 start select for movement, weapon drop/last weapon/use item/reload. I use my mouse for weapon selection and duck/jump/secondary fire. (I have a 5 button mouse)

    I would like to get a 360 controller because it would eliminate the mouse totally. I know it works with Windows, but specifically do the analog sticks work with CS:S.

    Yes, they will work with CS:S, you will just have to set up the controls (via the driver or possible ingame) to allow you to use the analog sticks ingame.

    Thanks Falcon,

    I was trying to save myself the hassle of returning something.

    The info will be well used....Too bad the controllers come in one color ;)

    time to get out the spray paint....

    Its a preference thing. Much you like coke, and I like pepsi. I have been playing videogames since 85 with a Nintendo (With a controller), and that to me is the only way to go.

    Im not saying you are wrong, its just a difference of opinion ;)

    Since my question was answered, I will digress.

    a) That was not an answer to my question, it was a statement of your opinion.

    b) Im married, and have plenty of real sex. There are no kinky "3 ways" with a keyboard and a mouse.

    In summary, I normally am pretty respectful of peoples opinions, but I never asked for your opinion. I wanted facts, and a bit of maturity. I guess I should expect that kind of stupidity from some kid that is from Jersey, the dirtiest state in USA. Thats my opinion.

    They work, I currently use a regular xbox controller. You'll suck compared to everyone else, but then again this is coming from someone who sucks at CSS. I think it makes games easier, It's just annoying having to map all of the controls,.

    For some reason though the actual feel of the controller is different on pc. You may have to extremely fine-tune the sensitivities and dead-zones on the controller to feel right.

    Believe me I will ;) Ill not rest until its perfect. I play halo/halo2 at sensitivity 9 and do quite well, but I can't play like that with a mouse. I have found that 2.8 mouse sensitivity is what I need because I flail my limbs around ;)

    Well since you plug the wired controllers in the 360's USB ports, your saying it would be possible for me to do the same thing with my computer? I think that would be awesome, as I have a wired mouse and it does not always work the way it needs to(getting stuck etc.)

    So how would I go about doing this?

    I got an XBox controller, and have wired it and got the settings near perfect. It took quite a bit, but I can say that it works great. For me at least, I can say I enjoy more wins this way than with a mouse.

    Thanks Buck for all the info

    Yea, I have an xbox 360 wired controller and it came with the drivers for it so I can hook it up to my PC. I played some games but not CSS since the left analog controls the looking and the right analog controls the moving so that pisses me off. Believe it or not you can actually use your 360 headset for the PC also, just plug it in your controller and you don't need any drivers. But the quality was pretty crappy so I don't like it, I just stick to my regular ones.

    Use ControlMK...It lets you redefine every key and If I read correctly it works for the 360.....I have mine set up the way you want, and I love it.
