UCOM controllers or the nameless button pads are the 600 naira controllers we've all bought at some point or rented from Haastrup back in Jaja days to do some quick gaming. (image below).
There are many different controllers in computer village now, and UCOM is the most common of those fragile controllers out there. They seem cheap but aside from being ergonomical copies to the Playstation 2 controller, many users fail to realise that these cheap controllers can Vibrate.
"Yeah, it supports Force Feedback"
Most of Nigerian gamers who buy this controller, tear open it's ugly box, pull out the conroller and discards the whole pack, along with the "sometime included usb-driver disc". Sure this pads are plug and play usb devices, but they do not support vibration through default Windows generic drivers.
That tiny disc you discarded is the key. So, incase you discarded yours too, heres are links to the vibration drivers for ;
- The twin controller / 2 in one controller (those jointed pads with ver fragile cables)
- Single USB controller
- PS2 controller / Dualshock 2 to PC converter driver
- USB racing wheel
The good side is, this Ucom controllers also work perfectly with the Xbox360CE application, hence those games you've been emulating xbox360 controllers for, would now support Vibration.
Here are the download links to them all.
