Thread: Xbox 360 Controller support?

Xbox 360 Controller support?

  1. #1
    Hey all.

    In the Settings, my controller is being read. It's allowing me to map buttons. In-game, I only have options for keyboard configurations. Anyone know what gives?

    There is a thread that helps out with that, look for it.

    Unfortunately, that thread doesn't state how to get the controller option to appear. It just explains what the ideal configuration is.

    Ah, bugger. Well I would say replug it, make sure its detected, the re launch the launcher, that might help.

    Hey all, I can't get my controller to sync! I have the drivers installed for the receiver and I have already tried this method:



    Go to Start and right click on Computer


    Click on Properties


    Click on Device Manager


    Look for an "Unknown Device" in the list and double-click on it.


    Click on the "Driver" tab


    Click on "Update Driver..."


    Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"


    Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"


    Double-click on "Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows"

    - But it is not working. I am using Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Turn the controller on (which will turn your 360 on if it's still synced to it), hold down the sync button on the controller (a little button on the top of the controller) while also holding in the sync button on the PC adapter.


    Now, go turn the 360 off manually since it's probably on.

    Ok, so I have paged through all the forums and found quite a few posts about issues with controller remapping and Xbox 360 controllers, however I have not found one like mine specifically so I figured I would post it and see if anyone had any helpful tips on getting it to work.

    So, my issue is I can not configure my controls at all. I can change my Keyboard controls in the launcher and in game however the launcher 'Joystike' config tab only shows me what the buttons are and doesn't allow me to change them. In game I only have the keyboard config option and no gamepad. Now, when I play the game, I am using the controller but I want to set the controls up to mimic the PSX version of the game. While this isn't game breaking to me, it is very annoying to find myself instinctively trying to use the PSX controls that have been burned into my brain and having to correct myself over and over. Apparently I am a slow learner or really set in my ways.

    Things I have done so far.
    -Unplugged and reseated my controller
    -Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and Xbox 360 accessories software
    -Exited and re-entered the game and launcher several times (I read a post about a guy having issues with the controller not being recognized)
    -Uninstalled my Nestromo n52te because it caused Ys Origins and YsIII steam games to not work.

    I saw people posting remapping apps but I would rather if at all possible just do it via game client. If not, I suppose I will end up dabbling in those remapping apps if I get really frustrated.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help and thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    Is the controller even detected by the OS?


    What OS are you using?

    Windows 7 64 ultimate and yes, it is detected by Windows.

  10. #10

    Huh. I'm using Win 7 Pro x64 and it is detected fine.


    Have you uninstalled the gamepad from device manager and rebooted?

  11. #11

    I did uninstall and restart.

  12. #12

    Do you have more than one joystick/gamepad?





    I had a similar problem at first launch, where it wasn't recognized at all, after a few re-launches it suddenly was. Then I could map it in the launcher, but the game didn't detect movement. So I unplugged my other controllers and it worked. I have 3 game controllers (1 joystick, 1 360, 1 PS2 -> USB). It was detecting my joystcik in place of the 360 one until I removed them. Then I went into Windows Gamepad control panel and selected the 360 as the default controller, since my Saitek Joystick was set as default for some older flight sims I play.





    If you have, and it still doesn't work; then I'd recommend Xpadder. It will cost a few dollars (unless it's gone free?) but it's so worth it for times when you play games that just don't have controller support, or if you want to play a game from the couch or bed without taking a keyboard with you (you can map controls to mouse/keyboard for something like Mass Effect).





    I actually played for 5 hours with xpadder controls just mappign the default keyboard controls to their respective PS controller mapping. After I got the 360 pad working, I realized there in fact was still no true analog movement, so it didn't matter at all. Behaves exactly the same way.

    I had my Nestromo N52 speed pad installed but I uninstalled it completely and unplugged it. Other than that, I have a Naga mouse which I uninstalled and hooked up my old Logitech mouse just in case the numberpad on the side of the mouse could have been an issue as well. I've been looking up things and reading stuff all day. I even called Microsoft trying to find out if the fact that my controller is a first gen controller would be an issue. That went over like the lead shoe....


    Anyway, I have pretty much exhausted all avenues except for Xpadder or any other remapping program, so I suppose I will just venture into that territory next.

    Thanks to both of you for taking the time to look at my post and ask questions and give me possible answers.

    I've done this, the controller lights search then just resort bad to all blinking, instead of connecting. It seems the receiver isn't reading the controllers connection.





    Any other thoughts on this?

  15. #15

    This is how I do it:


    1. Plug in the Wireless Receiver


    2. Power on your controller, it probably connects to your Xbox360 if it was synced


    3. Press the button on the receiver to start sync


    4. Press the button prependicular to the BACK button on your controller at the top of your controller to sync the controller with the wireless receiver


    5. Done.





    How hard is this? I didn't even mess with device manager, unless your Windows did not install the drivers necessary.

    Personally I have experiened this a couple of times and can more or less verify the solution.

    I would usually off-focus the FF7 window to my browser or anywhere else on my PC (I have 2 monitors) for some time, and due to inactivity, the Xbox360 controller will turn off by itself.

    If you re-focus on the FF7 window with the controller turned off, when you started the game with it ON, you will get Unknown Exception has occured and the entire window will hang.

    So do remember to turn on your controller before alt-tab or re-focus the FF7 game window, otherwise, if you had not saved, you will lose your progress.

    P.S. I have not tried turning on the controller AFTER the exception occured to see if the game resumes normally, but rule of thumb is what I stated above.

    Cheers.

    It's not hard at all, I have downloaded and installed the drivers and I try to sync them both. My controller just searches and searches and can't find anything.





    That is my issue.

  18. #18

    Well I went and bought a new controller. It hasn't done anything. I have relaunched FF7 over and over, checking to see if it would do anything. Still in the same boat.


    I don't know, I am really really annoyed with this. I am almost to the point of just requesting a refund and walking away. I am not 100% blaming SE at all. It could be an issue with my pc but either way, it's become a headache with no end or help in sight.


    If anyone has any helpful tips I am greatful.

    I have the wired 360 controller plugged in, and I have other various adapters for PS2 and Wii (Classic) controllers.
    Mind I have installed the official drivers for the controller, found here: www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/xbox-...
    I am having no issue. Just make sure you set the controls to a similar fashion as the PSX format:
    U/D/L/R will be the stick, not the D-Pad.
    What was Circle is B, X is A, Square is X, Triangle is Y.
    L1/R1 are the Bumpers.
    L2/R2 cannot be the Triggers, as they are throttles and not buttons. Map those to the stick buttons.
    Select is Back, Start is, well, Start.


    Hope this helps.

    Someone named Pawe? over in a different thread (na.square-enix.com/go/thread/view/139347...) found what I believe should be the solution to the "can remap but can't play" controller issue. In Vista or 7, go into "Devices and Printers" (on the right side in the Start Menu). Find your controller, right-click it, and select "Game controller settings", then select "Advanced". Then select the controller you're using at the one "to use with older programs". If anyone is having the same issue in xp, there might be a similar option under game controller settings in the Control Panel.


    Now the only issue for me is getting the less used buttons (the Select button, the shoulder buttons) set up how they were in the original game. Wait, never mind. Found a page comparing the button naming with the original PSX layout (www.cavesofnarshe.com/ff7/buttons.php).

    Just to help people with PS1 like buttons.

    Hello Tzelanit,


    If you are still experiencing this issue we would like you to try the following:

    <ul>[*]Go into your Device Manager > Human Interface Devices[*]Right click on any entries that say HID-compliant consumer control device, for example, USB Input Device, USB Game Controller, HID-compliant device.[*]Right click and disable every device apart from your keyboard, mouse and controller.[/list]

    Once complete, launch the client and go to the settings screen to reconfirm you have properly configured the controller. afterwhich, try logging into the game and see if the issue persists.


    If you still have problems after trying these steps, please let us know and we will look into this issue further for you.


    Thanks!

    I'd like to add that there are no Controller setup in-game. It is only in the launcher.




  24. #24

    Anyone know how to map a 360 Controller to match that of a old PS1 Controller mapping for this game.

    [OK] -- B (red)


    [CANCEL] -- A (green)


    [MENU] -- Y (yellow)


    [START] -- "Start"


    [SWITCH] -- X (blue)


    [PAGE UP] -- LB


    [PAGE DOWN] -- RB


    [TARGET] -- Right Stick (push in)*


    [ASSIST] -- "Back"


    [CAMERA] -- Left Stick (push in)*


    *The game cannot register axis inputs for button presses, so the left and right triggers cannot be mapped to [TARGET] and [CAMERA] (R2 and L2). That's why I have mapped them to the stick buttons. Windows also sees the 360 D-pad as a hat controller, which the game also does not allow to be mapped, so you have to use the left analog stick for movement (it is correct by default).


    Also, do not forget to go into "Devices and Printers", right-click your 360 controller, select "Game Controller Settings", select "Advanced...", and choose the 360 controller as the "Preferred device". The launcher will always see the 360 controller fine (so you can map buttons either way), but if you don't change that setting, then the game itself will not see it fine, and you'll constantly move up and to the left.
