Keyboard And Mouse
Posted 11 February 2004 - 03:58 PM
I am extremely happy with my xbox and have no desire to change it in any way apart from the joypad. Being a PC gamer for many years I am missing my keyboard and mouse, is there anyway I can get a keyboard and mouse to work on a standard xbox. If anyone can give me any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

Longer answer, with a retail Xbox, no. However, with a modchip you can do many things. Although game interfaces are not set up to read keyboard inputs so they are not going to be playable with a keyboard, even on a box with a mod chip. This is due to the software itself not using the information being input by the keyboard. A modded xbox with a keyboard and mouse is able to do many things, like surf the web (hey, it's like free WebTV!) after installing Xbox Linux, of course...

The problem remains that the games are not designed to read keyboard inputs and do anything with them. So aside from the occasional arrow key moving the pointer, you won't really be able to play any games with a kbd and mouse. Sorry.
