little problem with track mania 2

#1 Posted by JimFear (8 posts) -

im currently using my ps3 controller with motion joy to play trackmania 2 but since tonight, when im trying to use my joystick to turn, it wont work. I checked the option to see if i can see anything i can do but i cant find any option that can help me. Anyone have an idea what is the problem?

inb4 you are using a ps3 controller and other joke like that.

I had inconsistent results with the PS3 controller, too -- I could only get the analog pad to work. Eventually I broke down and got the remote sensor and now use an xbox360 controller. I know this doesn't solve your problem, but I thought I would commiserate with you.

@JimFear: I'm using the same setup and occasionally mine reverts to PS1 mode (dpad only) even though motion joy shows Playstation 3 as the selected mode. To fix it I have to open motion joy, make sure Playstation 3 is selected as the mode and press enable to get it working again. Give that a try. It seems to be an issue with motion joy in general, not just Trackmania.

im having similar problems.

everything works fine except r2 and l2 buttons.

ive made sure everything is enabled. and i kn ow its specific to trackmania because all buttons work fine on my other games. anybody know of a fix? anything would help.

edit: after farting around a bit in both motinjoy and tm canyon, i found a temporary fix - set profile in motionjoy to "playstation 2 (POV, joysticks")

you will need to restart motionjoy and unplug-then re-plug your ps3 controller to get it back to normal (ps3 mode working properly) if you intend on play other games (at least i have to)

hopes this helps anyone with a similar problem
