PC gamers!.....

what is a good pc ps2 type game pad that will work well for rugby 06. had one previously but the sticks didnt respond for games such as fifa when doing right stick moves (that would translate as hand off and sidestep in rugby 06)

cheers guys xx

Saitek P880 may not match the set configuration, but it's a quality pad.

I use one and would quite happily recommend it to anyone.

i have a logitech dual action game pad and it does the trick. the thing with it though the right analog stick doesnt get used on the pc for some reason. we have to hold down one of the other buttons. But the right game pad works fine for games like NBA live and NHL on my pc.

i had a nostromo game pad but the configuration on that was stupid to pass left and right i had to use the l1 and l2 buttons and for speed it was r2 and r1 was the button to trigger the sidestep etch

I have a Logitech dual action game pad too, had it for a year & no problems. I also got a Logic3 dual action (which is more or less the same) but with the Logic3, the buttons are numbered up differently to the Logitech pad. This is a pain if you are on a game where you cannot change the control layout (though very rare to not have this option missing nowadays). The logitech pad is numbered correctly.

Like Woosaah said, I played Rugby 05 with the logic3 pad & I had to use buttons 7 & 8 (R1 & R2 on PS2) to pass left and right, which was very confusing. Also kicking out of hand was button 2 (which is Triangle on PS2).

Below is a picture of a Logitech dual action game pad. You can pick up one of these for around £15.

Hey get a ps2 adapter for the pc. Its cheaper than a controller and it works fine. I dont know what stores to get them from because i got mine from an auction site. But yeah thats definantly worth it if you can get one.

Not all PS2 adapters work. Mine maps the buttons wrongly, so I had to splash out on a Logitech Rumblepad 2. Was a pretty good deal tho, cos I got it for a tenner off Amazon :D

My one worked. All i had to do was install the software and it works perfectly fine.

And all the buttons are mapped to the right commands in the game? With mine, all the kicks were in the wrong places, compared to the PS2 version. Sure you can get used to it over time, but why should you have to play with wrongly-mapped keys?
