I hooked up my Xbox 360 Wireless controller using the Play and Charge kit, but it won't work. Why?

The Play and Charge kit does not function as a USB adapter for the controller. Microsoft built it so that it only sends power to the controller in order to recharge the batteries. A wireless receiver is still required to detect the controller's wireless signal that sends the button inputs.

What hardware do I need to use Joystix?

A PC that meets the minimum requirements for the game you want to play, a supported controller, and an Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows if you use a wireless Xbox 360 controller.
