Hey guys, so I have this McCthulu+RJ45 modded TE stick that was fine until very recently. Last week, I tried to play USF4 on steam and my computer said that the usb device has malfunctioned which meant that it wouldn’t be recognized. To test if this was a PC problem, I tested it on the ps3 and the controller still wasn’t recognized. After some fiddling with my rj45 cable and neutrik port, i realized that if I jiggled the cable correctly, the stick would be recognized, leading me to believe that it was a problem with the neutrik port. I ended up ordering a new neutrik port and a rj45 data connector just to solidify my connection so that it would be more robust.
Fast forward to today and my items have arrived and I install the data connector and tried it out-- to my surprise, the stick works and the inputs are recognized! I try it out in training mode and everything seems back to normal. I didn’t even bother installing the new neutrik port as I figured that it was fine. A few hours later, I decide to play online and while the device is still recognized, there is a huge problem- none of the buttons or joystick seem to be registering any inputs! On the device list the stick is listed as MCCthulu and XPadder recognizes the stick and pulls up the default control settings, but none of the buttons register when I press on them. I ended up replacing the neutrik port just to see if it would work, and the problem is still there. I tried it on the ps3 and none of the buttons/joystick work either… I am skeptical that it’s the neutrik port’s fault, and I’m also skeptical that it’s the rj45 cable as I just bought this one last month. I tried to update the firmware, but since the inputs from the stick aren’t registered, I can’t hold down start and select.
At this point I’m not sure if it’s a hardware problem or a firmware problem, but I really need your guys help on this as I haven’t played in FOREVER.
Thanks for the help!
