In just about every video game that exists there has to be some sort of instructions or help system. On a PC of console system the instructions have to be built into the game for obvious reasons. For our games we wanted to show the controls for keyboard, mouse, and Xbox controller. Unfortunately to find a suitable royalty free image is a pain in the ass for an Xbox controller. Either the image is too small, the angle is wrong, the color isn't suitable....Then you have to photoshop the hell out of it. Forget it! If we make a controller in 3D Studio, it will be ours. It can then be any color we want, on any background we want, at any angle we want. So here is our virtual Xbox controller I made for our game help systems.
