hi,

maybe itīs a well-known problem but with google i couldnīt find any solutions for it. you are my last hope :D

iīm using a gamecube controller, connected to my pc via the "magic joy box" (which of course supports the rumble feature).

furthermore i selected the NRage plugin (newest version) which is working really fine, except the fact that due to some reason the fields, where i can choose the rumble type, are inactivated.


do i need another plugin or am i just stupid ^^?
thanks in advance (donīt know if this direct translation from german to english is correct, but i think you get the meaning :D)!


regards,

Kinimod



EDIT: ok i am stupid... can someone please move this thread in the "public version"-section ^^?
thought i have posted it there ... sorry for that

try nrage v2.2

if nrage doesn't list the device, its because it lacks a forcefeedback driver and theres nothing i can do about that.

as i said i have the newest version, which means v2.2.

can you explain to me, what "forcefeedback" exactly means?
is this driver needed for the adapter i am using or is it for the gc-controler itself?

does the rumble-feature work, for example, with a logitech controller?

regards,

Kinimod

Superjoy (Mayflash) drivers have been known to lack a forcefeed back driver. Nrage and Jabo use the Force Feedback driver registered to Dinput for rumble.

Can you provide a screenshot of the Dxdiag input tab?

If you have the Super Joybox 13, install the drivers from http://www.mayflash.com/Download/Setup%2013%20Vista,windows%207.exe
If you have the 3 in one magic joybox install the drivers from http://www.mayflash.com/Download/magic%20joy%20box%20after%20Nov-1-2007.rar

hmmm i think i know which line you wanted to see.
for my controller the column "forcefeedback driver" says "not applying" (direct translation from german to english. i guess it means as much as "not available").
so, as long as there is no driver for the gamecube controller, there is nothing i can do i suppose?

do you know then, whether there are any forcefeedback driver for a PSX or XBOX360 controller?

EDIT: uuuuey its working thanks dude :D
i wasnīt aware, that there are drivers for the joy box. thought it was fully plug&play.
are that drivers from the producer or is it some additional driver?

did you try the drivers i edited into the above post?

I don't really like mayflash drivers though they tend to be sort of shoddy and the adapters are bleh.

Personally, if i had a wired 360 or psx controller, for the psx control i would use a psx to xbox adapter connected to a xbox to usb adapter, or with the wired 360 (since it connects right to usb) and use the XBCD driver. I use it myself on my Xbox small type.

If you can get a PS3 controller, the motionjoy drivers also work and are decently featured.

yeah everything works very well :D
thank you very much.

why donīt you like these joy boxes? of course i havenīt put it to the acid test, but games like mario64, lylat wars, diddy kong racing, zelda etc. are working all fine.
in addition i really like the gamecube controllers, at least for n64 games.
what is the advantage of using an xbox controller?

the build quality isn't that great on the adapters, many of them end up with shorts or the sticks start being read badly.
