360 wired controller on Mass Effect 2

#1 Posted by PaulKemp (114 posts) -

Hello fellas,

Got this on the steam sale a while back. I played ME1 on xbox and loved it, started on ME2 on xbox and didnt really love it so much. Fast forward two years, got myself a new "pc" and I want to play it again!

Since my roots are in the xbox I want to play this with a wired controller. This is not supported OTB, so i need a modifeid Coalesced.ini file. I found one online, but that one didnt work. I was not able to switch weapons (d-pad) or click "a" to accept the name of the character in the beginning of the game. So: Does anybody have a version of the Coalesced.ini file that actually works with a xbox controller? Regards

This file is located in:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mass Effect 2\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Mass Effect 2\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini

Yeah ok, I found another Coalesced.ini file, but some of the same issues prevails. I get no combat or weapon wheel. Might just ingore myself and play with a mouse and keyboard.

I bought the trilogy for PC and never got the controller to work well so I bought it again for the Xbox and I'm having a blast. The controller barely works on the PC and no power wheel. I was very disappointed.
