    Lego Star Wars II on PC/USB Playstation Controller adapters

    I downloaded the Lego Star Wars II demo earlier. Looks like fun but the controls are annoying and for some reason the demo won't let me redefine the player one controls to wasd for movement. Well it lets me define them then chucks away the setting once I leave that screen.
    Anyway I quickly decided it's game that would be much better with a game pad. So I dug out a USB adapter for Playstation controllers I bought a while ago and never used. Plugged it in, started the demo, checked out the control options and it shows I'm using a joystick. I can move left,right,up,down etc around the menu options. All good. Until I actually start the game at which point the controller is ignored. None of the buttons do anything. Quick back the menu, buttons work. Start playing, buttons don't work.

    Any one else tried using a gamepad with this? I'm wondering if it's an issue with the game of the fact I'm using a USB adapter for a Playstation controller. Are they actually any good? Tried using the playstation in control in FEAR and it's useless. It recognises there's something there but it thinks most of the buttons are the same button. Not go anything else installed to try it with. (Re-installed recently.)

    I use a sytek rumble pad, and it works fine. Joypad is really the only way to play this game: it's truly awful on WASD.

    I've not tried using a PS controller. Sounds like your problem is there. Get a cheapy game pad. Or an Xbox 360 controller? (I'm not an autority on that, but I think they work with windows)

    Wow, couldn't imagine playing FEAR with a pad I find mouse/keyboard nicer for FPS.. anyway thats OT.

    Or an Xbox 360 controller? (I'm not an autority on that, but I think they work with windows)
    iirc they do, although marketed as two separate products (as far as I can see, "XBox 360 Controller for Windows") I think the 'for Windows' just comes with drivers that you can download from Microsoft?
    We cannot choose what we are.. but what are we but the sum of our choices?
