Get a gamepad, simple !!!!! I had wingman cordless by logitech and the keys couldnt be re-mapped. Just got a cordless rumblepad 2 and it is the mutts nutts, plays and feels just like a ps2 pad. fully compatible and worth every penny !

for example mine is a ps2 pad so i renamed
Logitech DualAction USB under OEMNAME
i cant my controller its a saitek sp550

i have done that with my old gamepad!!!
i am playing only with my keyboard but this is great discovering for all you.
so racear has right.good job

this is what you must do
1)run regedit
2)then edit>find
3)put there the name of your will find that in control panel>game controler
4)when it find that,rename it to "Logitech DualAction USB"
5) Press F3 to find next then do the same
6) press F3 and rename them until its over

if you have done these steps then in control panel>game controler you must see the name "Logitech DualAction USB" that means it's OK
now go play fifa 2005 and go to options to change the keys you want
the only problem is that you can't change "first touch" ("shift" in keyboard) but i think if you have analog stick i think it will solve the problem

good luck

Fifa 2005 has support for various gamepads.
I have the Saitek p880 and it works fine.
Go to My Documents/Fifa 2005/user
There is a file called mappings.dat
You can open it with excel and see the names of the controllers. It will say it's not a format for excel, but open it anyway and it will show you the names of the controllers.
Just make sure that in the regedit you change the name of your controller to exactly how it is written in the mappings.dat file.
But I don't think the Saitek sp550 is on the list.

I have a Nyko Air Flo, its not listed on the list of gamepads for fifa05, but it is supported. I just plug it to my usb, nothing else. It work like magic, no calibration problems, and the buttons can be re-assigned. Its perfect so far!!!!!!!!!

so the short answer to my question is that I can edit all my registry keys and f*ck up every other game I own that recognizes my Saitek P3000 controller perfectly to attempt to play Fifa 2005.

No thanks, WE7 works great out of the box.

EA screwed up NHL royally this year and now they've lost more of my money for FIFA with this controller issue as well. Maybe they'll try harder next year.

USB PS2 controller converter

When I start up fifa 2005 the controller seems like it is stuck on 1 button because on the language selection list is just on a continuous cycle.

If I manage to then select English while it is wizzing through the languages, the team selection menu is then wizzing through all the teams.

they work on fifa 2003

can anyone make a suggestion on how to fix this problem.

Wrong forum mate!

Sounds to me like ya controller isnt configured right. Try going to the controller options and setting up each button manually. Another reaon you may not have your controller selected as the primary device, check this as your configuring the joystick.

is the logitech dual action gamepade worth it?

hey, im having problems with my usb ps2 converter thing and when i play fifa i cant use the right analogue stick properly and im wondering if its worth buying the logitech gamepad because to me without the skills and first touch sorta takes some of the fun away from the game and being able to skin someone online with the use of the analogue stick is unbeatable and at the mo i cant do this, so do you think its worth the £20.00 for the gamepad?
