There you go. No more problems with GamePads!

Have you ever wondered why EA Sports disabled most of GamePads to be used in FIFA 12 PC Demo? If so, you’re not the same. As the demo got released today, we’ve seen many unhappy user stating on forums that they can’t play FIFA 12 Demo because the game crashes/is not recognizing their GamePad!

So there you go. We have solution, and that is GamePad Fix for FIFA 12 PC Demo!

This small but very useful program can be downloaded from here:

ps thanks to tanagoo for a hint in his first post about gamepads!

thanks for trying, but still wont work with my PS2 controller, which worked fine for fifa 11..

could it be because i edited the registry earlier like someone recommended to do for an earlier fix?

There's an another way, copy the "buttonDataSetup.ini" from "My documents/FIFA 11" (FIFA 11 save folder) to the FIFA 12 save folder, it works for me (Y)

Why nobody mentioned that there is no way to play 2 vs 2 offline because 4 gamepads cant be plugged in at the same time for fifa?!? I tried with supported Logitech gamepads and i always get cash upon startup of the game.Anybody has a solution?Was this also in fifa11?
