X-Box controller for the Showcase CameraOn FS2020

Recommended Posts

Hi all. New to the forum here. (Also 79 years old, so be kind).
Not at all familiar with X-Box hardware, etc.  Wanting to buy and hook up an X-Box controller to a PC in FS2020 to control the Showcase camera.

Can someone either answer a couple of questions, or direct me to the answers?
Is anyone using an X-Box controller for the Showcase Camera and if so, would you recommend wired or wireless?
If wireless, do you need a dongle to hook it to the PC?
Will a less expensive controller like a PowerA ($25) on Amazon work OK?

Thanks for any help.

You can get a bluetooth controller, if your PC has bluetooth support, otherwise you'd need a dongle for wireless. However I bought a (wired) Logitech gamepad for less than half the price, and it was instantly recognised and set up as an Xbox controller, works like a charm.

I tried a Logitech Rumble pad 2 controller [looks like XBox]. FS2020 recognizes it but there are no pre-determined key bindings.

If a I buy an Xbox controller, which model?

 

Thanks.
