well that is the thing. you can't set these controls in-game. you have to edit the config file in data\system\ folder

To footballs:

If use have 36 in folder 2 and 35 in folder 5, what are the names of the left/right axis and up/down axis in the control panel? Z-rotation, slider? Do you have any other axes?

Just try with different values, but remember always make left/right placed before up/down.

Thustmaster Firestorm Dual 3 pad solution/button configuration...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_044F&PID_B304\Axes

I used:

00 00 00 00 01 00 36 00 for folder 2, and;

00 00 00 00 01 00 35 00 for folder 5.

I calibrated my gamepad as follows (via 'Thrustmapper'):
Through 'button to button', I re-asigned the buttons to copy the format of the Logitech Dual Action (dual analogue) pad.

*** Updated ***
Original Button > Re-asigned to
1 > 2
2 > 1
3 > 3
4 > 5
5 > 4
6 > 7
7 > 6
8 > 8
9 > 11
10 > 11
11 > 11
12> 9 (Press the right analogue stick to 'pause' in the game.)
*** Updated ***

My right analogue stick works perfectly for 'OTB' (and freekicks) now.

That's all that I did, nothing else at all.

Thanks, to 'tckab123' and others for the registry settings information.

can you PM me or let me know here how you actually used thrustmapper to map the keys because ive never used it before and im not really sure how it works.

Basically...

1) Launch 'Trustmapper' from the taskbar.
2) Press 'browse'.... navigate to fifa2004.exe,
press 'ok'.
3) Double-click on the appropriate button under the 'standard' column.
4) Press the 'button to button' box (a square with a circle to the right) choose the button number you want for each button,
for example: for button (1), choose (2) (you want button (1) to act as button (2)).

When you have finished, remember to save your new configurational settings!

Allow the 'Thrustmapper' software to launch as a start program, as it automatically changes configuration, for each game that you have customised the pad for. When you launch 'FIFA 2004' for example, the 'Thrustmapper' software will automatically invoke your saved configuration file.

Chris Tse. thanks for the great help you're providing to everyone. Like you I have a Nostromo N45, which is the best pad I've ever had. I was extremely disappointed to learn that it wasn't supported in Fifa. I was going to follow your advice with the registry changes, but I've managed to get it working fine by changing the button configuration in the Profile Editor software. And my right stick is working fine by changing the Z-axis to Rx axis and the Rz axis to Ry axis.

I know its working fine because in my impatience I bought a Logitech Dual Action Gamepad and it works no differently - though I can't use the Nostromo in training. I persevered with the Nostromo because the Logitech pad, while good, doesn't feel as good. I now just use the Logitech pad for training.

By the way, I think EA owe people like you a great deal of thanks because you are better than the technical support that comes with the game. Another poster helped me solve a big gamma/darkness issue. I was close to taking the game back to EB for a refund, I was so pissed off with not being able to see it or play it fully. I am glad I didn't, because with the help of people here, I am ejoying it immensely.

I kept it as 'Thrustmaster FireStorm...' It wasn't necessary to change the pad's name.
Everything I did is in my previous two postings. It works exactly like my Logitech pad now.
Oh yeah... in training mode it works perfectly too. With my changes, it works 100% like the Logitech now. I have full directional control in 'OTB', and of course, the skill moves work as well. Have a look in 'Practice Mode'- you can move your 'OTB' player in all directions...

I'm using Windows XP.

Congratulations. Hope everyone can enjoy the game. It seems that those having the right analogue should try different attributes, as different joysticks have different axis definition, like
Rx, Ry, Z, Rz, throttle, rudder, slider ....

I think that is why EA chose to use the Logitech Dual Action pad as the 'standard' joypad. It's an excellent joypad, and the analogue sticks are very accurate.

So maybe EA aren't so bad after all, eh? The Logitech Dual Action is a fine joypad.
I play FIFA 2004 (and NHL 2004) much better with it, than with my Thrustmaster 'pad. Maybe I'll get used to the Thrustmaster... anyway, it's a great spare 'pad to have!

That EA chooses to support only a small number of gamepads is a laughable indictment. I have a nostromo n45 (a better gamepad than the Logitech DA), a Logitech Wingman and a Microsoft Sidewinder, none of which operate properly with the game without heavy tweaking and registry editing. If you believe it's acceptable for a major software company to churn out software with very limited hardware support then I say you're very wrong.

Further, EA's response to such issues boils down to zero tech. support in terms of trying to solve the issue. It's left to us, in the gaming community to try to find fixes for these problems.

excuse my dumbness

I have a thrustmaster and have followed instructions I hope.

I have input folder 2 and 5 (didnt ever see 0 or 1 !!!!)

Alas my 2nd stick now moves left and right.

What do I have to do to get it up and down as well (Is it the fact i never had a 0 and 1 ??)

Great feedback by the way i'm almost there

Well, maybe EA have faith in the 'FIFA community'; it only took me two minutes to edit the registry- hardly brain surgery.

Use the information given in the very first posting, to create the following two sub-folders for '0' and '1'.

'0' should contain:

Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 30 00
FFAttributes 0a 00 00 00 00 01 00 00

'1' should contain:

Attributes 01 81 00 00 01 00 31 00
FFAttributes 0a 00 00 00 00 01 00 00

When you have done that... name the value that says '(default)' (contained inside the folders that you made):
for '0' call it 'X-Axis'
for '1' call it 'Y-Axis'



Just for general information:
The following is from my registry (your VID-PID code might be different):

No problem. I can't understand why you didn't have folders '0' and '1'- they were there by default after I installed my joypad. I only added the '2' and '5' folders.
I just pasted what's in my registry file from folders '0' and '1'- I didn't modify those two. Have you installed the 'Thrustmapper' software?

All I can say, is that the settings work for me, in Windows XP Home. Hopefully someone can look through my settings, and see why they won't work for you. If you're using 'Windows 98 SE', maybe that's why my settings won't work for you.
I'm using a Thrustmaster Firestorm Dual 3 gamepad. I'm sorry that I can't help further at this point. Good luck with resolving your joypad issues...

My only original work on here, is re-mapping the buttons to mimic those of the Logitech Dual Action pad.

To TIGERFAY1973:

I think folders "0" and "1" are used to control your left analog stick so you may not need to change their setting if they work correctly. What Richard Rambone did is to assign the left/right movement to slider, and up/down movement to Z-rotation.
