I’ve looked for a solution for a while but haven’t had much luck.
Neither my PC nor my laptop are recognizing my TE fight sticks as 360 compatible controllers.
My HORI stick works fine, my wired 360 controller works fine, but both the BlazBlue TE R2 fight stick and the SFIV TE R2 fight stick fail to install drivers when I plug them in. I’ve read about chipset issues with MadCatz products for the PS3 controllers but 360 controllers are supposed to be XInput compatible and just plug n play.
I’ve tried every USB port on my systems. 2.0 and 3.0. I’ve also made sure to get the latest and reinstalled all USB controller and INF drivers. I’ve tried specifying the driver manually by taking a look at what .sys files are used by my HORI stick and pointing the MadCatz controllers at it manually but the system still believes they are incompatible.
I’m running Windows 7 64bit (Home premium on the PC and Ultimate on the laptop)
I’ve filled out multiple tickets with MadCatz but they have only responded to one and basically ignored the issue and told me to call microsoft and “ask about their driver.” Thanks guys.
At this point I’m out of ideas. I bought a VIA USB card because I’ve seen that recommended and they’re pretty cheap, but I think that’s only for resolving issues with the PS3 controller and Intel chipsets.
Please advise, any input is much appreciated.
