9.10. Gaming Options

If you're a serious gamer, the Game Controllers program may interest you. You use it to configure and control the joysticks, steering wheels, game pads, flight yokes, and other controllers you've attached to your PC. After all, if your joysticks and controllers aren't installed and configured properly, you can't pulverize aliens to full capacity.

To get started, install the driver software that came with your gaming device. If it's a modern, USB, Windows XP–compatible gadget, you may not even need to do that much. Just plug in the device and watch the notification area for a message that Windows XP has detected it and installed the correct driver. (See Chapter 14 for more on installing gadgetry.)
