I have a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and a standard Xbox 360 controller. I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
When I plug in the keyboard, Windows automatically installs some drivers and starts the itype.exe process in the background. This appears to break the controller compatibility in some games. Note that all of these games work fine if I unplug the keyboard before launching them.
Games that work
- Dungeon Defenders
- Outcast (If anything should have broken, it's this. It's ancient! Why didn't it?)
Games that don't
- Rayman 3
My guess is that the Zoom toggle on the keyboard is acting like a joystick axis somehow? But I really have no idea. Is there anything I can do about this other than removing the keyboard before playing those games?
