The device get recognized by Windows and install the following drivers:






Windows 8 - 64 Bits

I tried it on Windows 8 64 bits. It installs by default a 10-Button USB Joystick. Which seems to work ok.

Checking "Devices and Printers" you can see it and access to the properties.



The buttons works and the slider, z rotation, point of view hat, and joysticks works fine. A "Calibration" may be required on the "Settings" tab. 

Windows recognize it as a "HID-complaint game controller" and "USB input device". The driver recognized by default is the Microsoft one.



The Specific Driver.


After installing it on Windows 8, I noticed that the Genius website has a Windows 7 driver dated from (2010/11/29). So I tried it.

The properties page was update. It also worked fine. 


The vibration test gave me problems, It will knock down the properties application. 

This driver is from Padix Taiwan: 

It has the following:
  • dyncal64.sys - Padix Co. Ltd. 6.0.6000.0518
  • rfclsvr64.dll - Padix Co. Ltd. 6.1.0.1228
  • rfvibra264.dll - Padix Co. Ltd. 6.0.6000.0518
  • rfvibra64.dll -  Padix Co. Ltd. 6.0.6000.0518


After installing  Rockfire Vibrate Gamepad Driver4.0 for Windows 8 -x32 and x64 (2013-02-01)  the vibration started to work without problems.

Windows 7 - 64 Bits. 

On Windows 7 - 64bits it is the same procedure. It also get recognized by Windows and you can also install the Genius driver.
