There's plenty of room for interface improvement, but that isn't my strength.

Not at all. I think the current issue is more user, and less interface ;)

Do the Official Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller work with this plugin or does it have to be a wired controller?

There are no stupid questions. The Xbox controller plugs into a usb port on the computer. When you download the plugin, there will be a file called "README - xbox360 notes.txt" that has instructions on how to install the plugin. It's very simple.

Wired and wireless both work, and while I've only tested a few knockoffs (look back through the posts), knockoffs that are wired and wireless also work if they support 'xinput' I believe.

I'm using one of the latest official Xbox One S Wireless controllers over bluetooth. Works great with the plugin (but requires Windows 10).

Heres a link to the controller:

Thanks Eric, Love the Plugin. I'd be quite interested in adding a few tweeks to it for my own use - have you released the source code anywhere?

An updated version of XBox plugin ver. 2.060 is available here: http://www.craftycnc.com/download/511/

This update adds following features and changes:
- Plugin settings are now saved relative to your profile being used. You can have different settings when loading different profiles. Settings are still saved in plugin folder, but the setttings will now be saved as file named: xboxcontroller_PROFILENAME.xml. the plugin will still load your old/existing xboxcontroller.xml file, just hit save after loading first time to have it save w/ the profile name.

This change came about because I was using the same computer and UCCNC installation for testing both a mill and a lathe, and I wanted different xbox control settings for the two profiles... :) There are no functionality changes otherwise, so no need to update if you aren't using multiple profiles.

As always, bug reports, suggestions, and comments welcome if you have any.

regards
Eric
