Hey guys, i just registered to add to this thread.
Firstly, a giant thank you to everyone who made the effort as to not completely f*ck up my GTA experience. I had been playing for a day with my Logitech cordless rumblepad 2 via xmapper, but it was still all f*cked up. Just to mention it, these were the bugs, among others:
- Sniper zoom would'nt work
- controls for pool games are shoddy - overly sensitive aiming, completely unusable "mouse thrust" when shooting
- bowling would'nt work at all, like sniper bug
- whenever i started tapping the run button, Niko takes out the knife. Extremely dumb in the middle of a fight.
- And the other regular sh*t.
reason i mention this is just that it has to be completely hellish to play with mouse and keyboard, when this is what you get from it. now, i remapped it to the joypad, but the same bugs persisted when on the default kayboard/mouse wsad setup. also, that setup wouldn't save consistently, meaning i had to remap a few buttons each time i fired up the game.
Anyway: The real issue at hand. The control works a charm now as it's recognized, except for one ridiculous solution:
Notice how button #1 is in place of the xbox X button, and goes round like that. In the Xbox setup however, the A button is recognized as #1, and the rest follow. Done, it's a minor problem, and it can be fixed with the .ini file. WRONG. It is fixable per se, and i have a controller which recognizes the A button when i press the actual 2 button on the controller, BUT THE GAME FAILS TO RECOGNIZE THIS. Does anyone know why? HERE IS XINPUTTEST
, where i get this actual fix confirmed, but the game still fails to recognize the buttons correctly. How can this be, if the same method is successful on all other, more f*cked up joypads? I'd like to hear from other users with the logitech rumble2, have you found a solution to this problem, or are you at all experiencing it? I have tried to find a remapper, but PPJOY will not work as this is a USB linked device. (early posts indicate that they might have used ppjoy still, i would in that case like to get a few pointers on how you solved that problem)
Alright. I'm not running around town tapping the left button and jumping into cinematic mode when i press the bottom one.
