I have a ps3 ssf4 TE S fightstick, a msi gd65 gaming mobo(intel chipset) and a syba VLI(VIA) chipset usb 3.0 card. My pc (win10) reads the stick as “pc usb wired stick 8838” but after I go to the game controller properties, I get no input whatsoever, from the buttons and joystick. Nothing and this is on all three modes, LP, DP etc. My syba usb VLI card came today and after installing it and updating the drivers, it gives me the same exact results; recognition that the joystick “pc usb wired stick 8388” is connected, but no inputs. I tried everything.
This is a known issue, however usually the usb card solves it, but it did not. I checked that the card is working and it is, it read my dualshock4 among other things. The fightstick works on my laptop immediately, but not my desktop, where I do all my gaming.
The only options that are left to me seem to be:
Buy a new fightstick - I won’t spend that much when I have one that should be working
Buy a Cronusmax Plus - It has my stick on it’s compatibility list, but since this is a special case, I do not know for sure if it would work, since the usb card also should have worked, but did not. Anyone with experience with cronusmax?
Mod it - This, I am thinking of doing now as I am completely fed up, but if I do, I will ask you guys more questions as to what is the best and easiest. I saw the Phreakmods Cerberus and it seems to be the most straight forward, but my stick is a ps3 one. All I want is to play using my working fightstick.
