I have spent hours already trying to get it to work "Properly" but to no avail! confused.gif

I have installed the game, it plays fine with the keyboard and mouse bored.gif

I have a Sony Vaio E series.
When i plug in the remote via USB, it installs the driver fine.
I downloaded that SAAC.
Still nothing.
I've tried mapping it myself via the Options menu in San andreas but not all the buttons work sad.gif

Is it impossible or what? suicidal.gif


Thanks for your time guys smile.gif

Edit: I am running Windows 7.

I say give it a pass and get a Real Generic GamePad, I use a Logitech Dual Action (Didn't need any special drivers as it worked straight from the box.)

Do you have more than one USB/Game Port item installed?

The only reason why I haven't bought a game pad is because I have 4 PS3 remotes so might as well put them to use.
But if that's the case then I might as well buy one. Any recommendations? I want something that works flawlessly with GTA:SA
I don't want to be messing with the settings all the time to change the controls etc etc.

Are you asking if I have more than 1 usb port?
If so, then yes it has 4 USB ports.

Having more than one Controller/Gamepad/Joystick will affect the use in the game. The controller must be pluged into the PC before the game is started, and of course the Joystick Option selected in the game's settings.

I have used Seitec and Logitech Gamepads. Both worked without any special drivers. Just be sure you have 12 buttons. I currently use the Logitech Dual Action model. Both are easily customized using the In-Game Options if desired.

I've not read of anyone using the PS3.
There is a lot of topics of problems with the Xbox.
There are a few PS2 (with adaptor cables) with problems.

Thanks for your input.
I have decided to just buy a game pad for this. bored.gif
