Weird controller issues
Hi, I cant get a "power a" brand xbox one controller to work with ver 2.3. I can configure controller and set all the buttons in options, but when I click save and use, it doesnt work with the game. Any ideas greatly appreciated. I saw someone said you have to run project64 as an administrator?? I've yet to try that...

I'm on windows 7. Fyi, I downloaded project64 (cant remember which version) about a year ago and used a similar controller with no problems (but I honestly cant remember if it was an "xbox" or a generic, I want to say it was a logitech)

Did you enable xinput?

Yes. I think I've tried everything. EVERY possible variation I can think of. It lets me assign buttons (plugged in). My controller tests fine in windows. I went ahead and calibrated it. I will say I had a ton of trouble finding a driver that would even get my laptop to recognize the controller, but I finally found a download that solved that (as far as I can tell).

I even tried to install the older version of PJ64, but for some reason when it gets to the end of installing I get a popup saying it cant be executed. Somethign about this file needs elevation. I really dont know what else to try. It's just so frustrating because I can assign buttons, so I know PJ64 CAN recognize the controller :mad:...

Ok, right after I posted this I figured it out. For some reason, you HAVE to configure it to "controller 1". I was trying the others. Hope this helps someone else. Thanks anyway Extreme dude
