Xbox 360 Controller Portal 2 problem HELP

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK, so i have a wireless xbox 360 reciever and controller. i have connected it to my computer, and confirmed it works fine in all of my other games. When i have it connected for portal 2, it recgonizes it and i can navigate the menus with the controller, but i cant play with it!!!! I start my single player mode, and all i can do is pause it using the start button the controller! I cant jump, shoot, crouch, move or anything!!! Theres nothing wrong with the controls in general, the keyboard and mouse work fine. but, first before this, it has worked fine, and then the right stick stopped working, and now the whole controller! I have no idea what i'm missing here.
Quick replies are very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This probably isn't it, but for a weird problem it's going to be a very basic or weird solution... Have you checked to make sure playing with a joystick is enabled in the settings?

Also try using a different controller, and if that works, well... Just don't use the other controller I guess.

Weird. Works for me as long as the controller is on before I launch the game.

I get some issues though if I change the USB port where I plug my 4.99$ hub I bought on ebay.

Good luck, you can try Xpadder if you are desperate.

I figured it out!! Open the developer console, (first have to enable it in options) by pressing the "~" key, and type in this command:

exec config.360.cfg

And then go back to options, configure your controller to however you like, and the right stick works again!! I havent tested to see if it saves, so that you can close the game, but I bet you it does. I found this solution by looking around the steam forums, and i found instructions for making a dual-controller split screen setup on the PC for portal2. I then thought that I could just use that command to try and re-initialize the controller settings. And viola! it worked.

(P.S. I'm not really using a xb360 controller, its just an emulator through motion joy that I use my PS3 controller with. It doesnt cause any problems with any game. The games don't know the difference! PS3 controllers are alot more sensitive and accurate anyway.)
