Possible fix for USB gamepad problem


monkii

Recommended Posts

Those having problem with the camera looking up/down when using USB gamepad could try this fix. It works for me, maybe it'll work for you too.

 

Go to Control Panel - Printers and Other Hardware - Game Controllers. Note your gamepad OEM name in the Game Controllers. Now open REGEDIT and search for your gamepad OEM name. When you found it (I found 2 of them by the way) rename it to " Logitech Dual Action " (without the quote sign). Now start GTA IV and good luck icon14.gif

 

rad_ also provided this to fix the problematic right analog stick (up = right, left = down):

 

 

I use a "3in1 Conversion Box" from Bigben interactive to connect my PS1 Analog Pad wit the PC. As descriped I rename it.

 

But the right analog stick not working properly, right/left becomes up/down. I cant find "Axes" under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_0F30&PID_010A

 

(NOTE FROM ME: THE VID NUMBER MAY BE DIFFERENCE, THIS IS THE SAME FOLDER WHERE YOU CHANGE THE OEM NAME TO LOGITECH DUAL ACTION IF YOU FOLLOWED MY WAY)

 

If you have the same problem add it manually to perform an axis override, works for me:

 

- unplug your Gamepad

- right click on your "VID-PID code"- folder, create a new key called "Axes"

- right click on the "Axes" folder, create a key called "2"

- inside "2"  create a binary value named "Attributes", set it to " 00 00 00 00 01 00 35 00 "

- after that cerate in "Axes" a second key: "5", create a binary value called "Attributes", set it to " 00 00 00 00 01 00 32 00 "

- restart you maschine and connect the pad.

 

under control panel/calibration you can take notice of the change.

Or you can also try DeathJester's fix:

 

 

Here is a solution to the axis being backwards on the right analog stick, I had the same problem in another game and found this solution and it worked fine. I didn't have to rename my controller just the axis was flipped so I only did part 2 but I'll post the whole thing for everyone.

 

Part one

In Windows, click start ->run then type regedit.exe and click ok

 

Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, open SYSTEM, open ControlSet001, then Control, media properties, private properties, joystick, OEM.

 

view each folder (should look like VID_0428&PID etc) until you find the controller you have. (should be USB GAME PAD) if its PS2

mine was "Twin USB Vibration Gamepad"

When you see you controller, double click where it says OEMName to the left of where its says the name of your controller, change it to "Logitech Rumblepad 2 USB".

 

The above will make the stick work...Below explains how to flip the axis

 

Part 2

Whilst still in the registry editor, expand the Axes folder and find folders 2 and 5, they represent axis Z and Rz respectively.

In folder 2 (the Z axis), find "Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 32 00" and change it to "Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 35 00"

And then in folder 5 (the Rz axis) find "Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 35 00" and change to "Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 32 00"

effectively you just swap existing numbers.

Then bingo!

Check the controllers in your control panel, then check them in game.

Might be worth mentioning this will probably effect how the controller behaves in other games, it doesn't cause me any so far.

This did work, but I have the original problem before the patch where my right analouge stick needs to be edited as look up=right, look down=left !!

 

 

 

So someone please figure out a way to remap the controller again, please.

This works!!!

 

I had to re-map some of my buttons, but thankfully my game controller* driver allows for that.

Nice work smile.gif

I tried using the hack after using this method but with no luck.

 

 

 

I am now going to try and find something that will work, there is a programme called Joytokey that lets you use the joypad's axis and buttons as keys on your keyboard but it's not perfect.

Yeeeah! Nice fix!

 

BTW My oem value was TWin USB and there were three occurances, only bug is as has been mentioned where with one analogue stick left and right is mapped to up and down but I can live without analogue for the time being

 

Bloody great fix m8 and BTW ROCKSTAR SPEND LESS TIME NULLIFYING PLAYER MADE USEFUL HACKS AND MORE TIME PATCHING THE GAME. AS IT STANDS A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY CANT CONFIGURE A CONTROLLER PROPERLY, ITS JUST WRONG! SO SPEND TIME GETTING RID OF DRM AND CONCENTRATE ON FIXING THE GAME NOT MAKING IT HARDER FOR US PLAYERS

Oddly I'm now stuck with the phone on the screen all the time. Not such a problem in the car, but on foot he won't run confused.gif

I had the same problem after the patch, turns out it was my Nostromo speed pad. I had to unplug it then start GTA, once in game I could plug it back in and everything was fine. It's quite a pain in the ass and never happened before the patch but then again this patch seems to have buggered more than it fixed for me anyway.

Could you please specify which value in which path you've changed? I find my OEM name somwhere in Classes and of course in the Media-Propertys.

 

EDIT: Holy Cow!! It works! Thank you!

Btw, the exact path is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\**YourController**]

"OEMName"="Logitech Dual Action"

Yay! It worked!

 

Any way to remap the buttons though? They are completely different from before now, which I can cope with, but it's just a bit annoying still.

To remap the buttons you would have to use profiling software, some gamepads like Logitech come with it. If yours didn't you can search the web for Xpadder or Joy to Key they might do the tick for you.

Awesome fix! I only have one issue though. I use a USB adaptor for a PS2 gamepad and the right stick is messed up. Anyone know of a way to fix this? "Up" is down and "Down" is up, "Left is right and "Right" is left. Tried using the ingame setting but it didn't work.

I need something that reconfigures my joypad buttons, using keyboard buttons as joypad buttons caused conflicts last time I tried.

 

 

Example- When I pressed the run button it was also jump as the joypad has buttons autsigned to it by the game.

 

 

Sorry edited my last comment to make sense.

I only used the game pad to drive so I never thought of that problem, sorry. I'll have to poke around the web a little and see if I can find anything.

I actualy use mouse and keyboard for shoot outs and stuff, but I had it set out perfectly before patch and I usualy sit back on my chair to walk around and stuff, so I need the joypad to be workable.

 

 

 

I could go and play with these buttons, but I am fed up of 'second best' with this game and it's problems, this is not what I paid for.

 

 

 

Thanks for the fix anyway, much appreciation for sharing this very useful information, I have been messing about with regedit and the joypad settings in there but nothing seems to swap the buttons.

I feel your pain, luckily I got GTA as a gift so I'm not out any cash but it's still very disappointing. I'm sure someone is working on a config fix as there seems to be alot of peeps with contoller issues so I'll keep searching. If only they could get the performance issues addressed...I can live with having to tweak my game pad.

It should be in the OEM directory. There might be a whole bunch of folders in there, the one for my game pad had a + beside it then when expanded it has 3 more folders...Axes, Buttons, OEMForceFeedBack.

Not sure what to tell you kingofpain, none of mine contain any calibration data like that. Make sure you are in the right folder for the game pad you are using is the best I can say right now, just don't change anything if you're not sure...better safe than sorry.

Awesum fix dude, followed it to the letter and its spot on.
