what stick are you using? did you go to button config then press right until your stick was detected? you could also try using a program like joy2key or xpadder that binds your stick inputs to a keyboard input.
If its a Qanba like your sig would lead me to believe, I dont have anything for you.
But those with sticks with one of my boards in it (Cthulhu, Chimp, VLX Kitty) have had a similar problem. Here’s the solution:
I have the same issue. Mayflash PS2/PS3/USB stick here. Buttons can be configured, but not directions. Joy2key and xpadder fail to deliver key input to SSF4:AE too, although both work with Notepad, so I can’t use that as a work around either.
I have a QANBA Q4. I can get the keys to map in game no problems by using the mode button.
However I can’t get SSFIV to save the config. Every time I go in game I have to remap the keys.
I have forced a save by adjusting volume and it still won’t save the controller config.
Any ideas? Should I be posting this somewhere else?
Maybe try toggling the Xbox/PS3 button on your stick. I only got PS3/PC Q4 and after I mapped my buttons once it saved perfectly fine. Never had to map them again since. But when I want to use a PC controller, every pad I own has to be remapped if I restart the game. Pain in the ass.
I would say “So often” but this has happened to me a few times also with just the regular unmodded PS3 TE stick, though I’m assuming it’s mostly down to there being no official support on PC for the PS3 sticks.
