you should try using xpadder to emulate the keyboard with a game controller. That way you can set up the controls exactly the same as the ps2 version. PM me your email address and I can send you my config file if you want.
Here's my configuration for xpadder on my Ps2 controller and it should work perfectly except for the right analogue's a bit different. Good luck and happy gaming
left analogue=directional buttons L3=left ctrl right analogue left=left shift & Q right analogue right=left shift & E right analogue up=left shift & W right analogue down= left shift & S R3=Alt select=Enter start=Esc square=Q triangle=W circle=E X=S L1=A R1=D L2=left shift R2=space bar
Ok I just realised you gota xbox controller unfortunately I won't be able to help you on that one but maybe someone else might already have theirs configured to xpadder and if you ask they might send it to you.
ive tried to use both xpadder and joy2key(havent found out the exact button config for the conroller yet with joy2key) and niether work, im using a wireless xbox 360 controller with the reciever and it doesnt work, any ideas?
Does anyone know the purpose of the \EA SPORTS(TM) Rugby 08\Data\controltypes.csv file, it shows a list of controllers with the button allocation for square, circle, triangle etc. and I read on a fifa 06 forum that the person could change his button allocation.
My controller layout is not right for the game layout and as you all know you cannot change the button configuration easily!
