FIX: Xbox 360 Controller MotionJoy Driver Issue On PC
If you are a PC gamer, sometimes a mouse and keyboard can’t cut it. This is mainly the problem with platformers, since they feel better with a controller as opposed to the PC norm. One quick solution was to use a PlayStation 3 controller with the provided USB cable and downloading the MotionJoy drivers. However, this is where the problem lies if you later switch to an Xbox 360 controller.
The other day, while playing LIMBO on the PC, the game would freeze after jumping and I would have to unplug the controller to resolve the issue, just to have it happen again. Luckily, the LIMBO forums on Steam had a solution for this problem. If you have the MotionJoy drivers installed (this is on a Windows 7 PC, so it should be similar menus to get to where you need to go) go to Control Panel > Uninstall a Program, and then find the MotionJoy drivers and delete them.
After this, go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager and find the Xbox 360 controller that you have plugged in and select it. Under the controller, the MotionJoy driver will still show up, so click it and select Uninstall.
With that finished, then you shouldn’t have to worry about the controller freezing games anymore. This issue seemed to be caused by the rumble feature of the controller. If you have any other issues, leave them in the comments, and I’ll see if I have any other solutions.
