So the fact that it sees it as a Fighting Edge is a good thing… Sort of. In my experience, I found the issue to be more with Windows 7 than anything else. Here’s what I did to resolve my issue on my MacBook Pro under Windows 7, 64-bit:
When I originally plugged my stick in, it identified it as a “Soul Calibur V TE”. Like you, it didn’t actually work in anything, because it needs to be recognized as an XBox controller for Windows.
I downloaded and installed the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows driver software available by searching for it on the Microsoft website.
After installing the software, plug in the stick. You will find that it still doesn’t work.
Go to the Device Manager, and look for the stick. Right-click on it and select “Update Driver”.
When the wizard starts, you have two options: Automatic detect, or Manual setup. Choose manual setup. During the process, you should be able to select gaming devices, then XBox 360 Controller for Windows.
After the wizard completes, disconnect and reconnect your stick. When completed, if you look under “Devices and Printers”, you should now see “XBox 360 Controller for Windows”. At this point, your stick should be usable in your Windows games!
This was my personal experience with Windows 7… On my Windows 8 machines, both my TTT2 and SCV Mad Catz sticks worked with no problem. Because your Fighting Edge is a licensed stick, it too should register as an XBox 360 controller, once the installation issue is resolved.
Keep in mind that I don’t think that the lights will necessarily work, and if the blues light up, don’t expect the reds to… It’s my understanding that the red lights up based on rumble feedback, and rumble was never implemented into the Xbox 360 driver for Windows. If the stick doesn’t light up, verify in the Device Manager or Devices and Printers windows that it is properly installed. If it doesn’t show up as an XBox 360 Controller for Windows, chances are that it WILL NOT WORK.
