Guys guys...I just figured it out how to make the analog triggers work!

Just search your registry for the joypad name appearing in Game Controllers in controlpanel. You'll end up at some key similar to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_06A3&PID_F51A

Next to OEMName will be the name of your joypad. Right click "OEMName" select modify Enter (exactly as here):
XNA Gamepad

Make sure that the name changes in Game Controllers in control panel.

Now start the game enjoy analog triggers! smile.gif

You are my new favorite.

Now, I can be happy that I didn't buy that controller for nothing.

Hey thanks for that but it isn't working for me mate, I have a Logitech Chillstream (basically the the same as Xbox 360 controller), and the triggers act as buttons too.

I enter the registry like you said and navigated to the joystick folder, but there's a lot of VID keys and I'm not sure why. Only of of them has a OEMname. Here's a pic;

Can you please help me smile.gif

Should I just delete all the other keys? Or reinstall the driver?

Moarmoz i'll give you a tip: I have the microsoft 360 wireless Controller but maybe it will help you too:

When you change the OEMName entry from "Xbox blabla..." into "XNA Gamepad" keep in mind that you might have to do that not on just 1 registry folder but on many. In my case i kept using the "Find" function and entering "OEMName". The registry found circa 4-5 entries with that name and i had to change them all until it actually displayed in the control panel as XNA Gamepad and then actually worked (A reboot could be needed).

If you are sure you changed all the entries and the name also changed in the control panel, then i would blame it on logitech? I don't know.. Let us know

It should be CurrentControlSet... not ControlSet001. That's why many of you cannot get it working correctly.

Also, my older Neo SE generic wired 360 controller behaves even weirder. The triggers are analog while driving (acceleration/braking), but digital while on foot (no half-pull for manual aim). Also while using the right analog stick to adjust the locked-on aim, instead of about a foot and a half radius free aim adjustment, I get like 10 or 15 feet worth of adjustment. That cannot be right.

Thank you LentoMan, my 360 wireless controller works perfectly!
However, i found the key of my controller in "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5.....000\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_045E&PID_0719" by following Hraptor's way.

on the other hand, i barely feel vibration in gta4, is there any way to fix it?

Dude... you f---ing rule. I like to think I am pretty smart with computers, hell I work in the IT industry and have some years of coding experience. I was banging my head against a wall for nearly 2 days over this.

I should have just come to this forum alot sooner. Thank you very much!

THANKS LentoMan! The path was right until ...\OEM\, but that doesn't really matter, because searching for one item with Xbox 360 Controller in it, is easy.
First, it didn't help, but moarmaz had the same problem as me and Hraptor gave the solution, so also thanks to you also, mate! wink.gif

Thanks alot, again. wink.gif

The registry fix does not work for me at all.

Vista 64/Xbox 360 wireless controller.

Back to the old drawing board...

I've also got a Logitech Rumblepad II that also has it's own issues. If I have a crash (car accident), it crashes the game too.

what do we do if we are using NON 360 , Xbox controllers?

I see a million vid folders.
how the hell do i know which one to change?

I use XBCD.dll drivers

It looks like
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM
\VID_0738&PID_4516

may be the correct folder.

Just gotta say... Start your wireless 360 controller BEFORE launching the game. I have to do just that, else the triggers don't work properly.

I wanted to add to this.

I used to suffer from this problem often. I temporarily resolved it with the registry fix detailed above, but it came back.

I have found that (even with no modification to the registry) as long as I plug in the controller after windows has finished booting and before I start GTA, the triggers function perfectly. I suspect it might be something related to hot-swappability, but I'm certainly no expert, so I'll leave it at that.

Edit: also just to be clear, I use a wired xbox 360 controller.
