oh wireless 360 controller.. why do you taunt me?! (PC)
yep.. another game and another broken wireless 360 controller issue :)
My wired one works fine.. but... it is wired (and isn't long enough).
The game is built for the controller.. even has controller settings in the game..
it feels like the last 3-4 games i wanted to play on the HDTV didn't have working wireless controller support "out of the box" (steam ^_^ )... well.. singularity worked right away. conviction didn't - took like a month for them to fix it >.<
It seems capcom knows about this and a patch is in the work.. i hope... the internet wouldn't lie to me :)
So an FYI to ppl that wanted to play this on their HTPC - wireless controller not working (yet)
Wireless controller works if you get x360ce:
Download it and start it up
Controller 1 --> Advanced Tab. Turn off Native Mode.
Force Feedback Tab. Turn off Force Feedback
Options Tab --> Set Fake Mode to Compatability.
Save, then copy all the files to your Dead Rising 2 folder. The game should then be able to detect it.
From readings other forums there are ppl that claim the wireless controller works and some that don't.
My gut tells me it works and for the people that it doesn't.. they are clueless. But my gut is wrong a lot :) Also, people to tell you enough info. Is this the frist time you every tried to use a wired controller with your PC? are you runing old as XP and never did any updates?
It seems that "gamers" with win7 x64, and have used their controllers in others games, are not have problems with the wired controller.
*gamers being ppl that seems to know their pc hardware and play a lot of games, and are mostly up to date in hardware and software.
Yeah the x360ce seems to 'fix' it, but then you cant use the guide button to access GFWL home...
Shits me when things like this aren't supported natively. Patch please.
EDIT: Oh, Hey Zurv. I saw you posting on the steam forums about the controller issue. Bit of a cluster-fuck of irrelevant knowledge over there. There is plenty of people posting this solution around but no accepting the fact that it shouldn't be required in the first place. It is making me sad :[
Definitely sucks that there's ANOTHER game that doesn't support the wireless 360 controller at launch.
The fix I used was this one from the Steam forum: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=17112854&postcount=8
The trick for me was to make sure it was specifically v126.96.36.199 of Xbox360CE. The newer versions didn't work for me. Some Googling found me the right version.
This was on Windows 7 32bit, btw.
