I am using motioninjoy as my program and i did everything as instructed...downloaded drivers..the controller showed up in the program it recognized it so i enabled it and did the vibration test and even that worked

but anytime i launch a game the controller has no effect

i even went to device manager..the controller showed up and everything was working properly..i went to properties and i can move the cursor around as it responds to my controller as well as the buttons

but why wont the controller work when im actually in game?...i tested various games also

Do the games you are playing have controller support. What titles are you trying to play?

Set the emulation to 360.

Good call. Most new games use Xinput instead of DirectInput.
