I am having the dreaded ps3 fightstick problems. If I plug the thing in it is detected as PC USB Wired Stick 8838, but when I go to Game Control Settings, none of the buttons work. I have tried a few different things to work around this. 1. I've read on forums that the stick is only compatible on Intel Chipsets. I have one of those. 2. USB 3.0 Seems to be the way to go. I have tried that. 3. Motionenjoy, Xpadder, etc. Tried that. 4. I've looked at the slider at the top of the stick LS, DP, RS. None of that seems to work.
My problem gets weird here. I've tried on and off every once in a while, but nothing seemed to work. I read on a SRK forum that if you download the newest drivers for the dualshock 3 through motion enjoy, and then plug your stick in, it will work.
I tried it, and it did work. Motionenjoy did not detect the stick, but in Game Controller settings, the buttons and stick started working immediatly. I was able to play for a couple of hours.
I went to play again today, and my stick wasn't working again =(
I tried doing what I had done yesterday, and no luck. If anyone has any ideas, please help.
