How to use Hori Fighting Stick 3 on PC (properly)

7 replies 17519 views Edited Aug 18, 2008

So i'm an old foggie and still enjoy playing arcade emulators (especially 2D fighters) on the PC. I've had an X-arcade stick for a while, but moved into a new place and space is a premium (will have to post pic of my setup later). Long story short, I bought a Hori Fighting Stick 3 for PS3. I managed to get the drivers from http://rapidshare.com/files/22348021/fs3drv.zip.html so the PC would recognize the stick, but the problem is that the stick directions register as Hat POV instead of directions in Windows Controllers. MAME will accept Hat POV, but other emulators like Winkawak or NeoRageX doesn't.

 

So the solution after days of googling and trial/error, I found this little gem: http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm . Once you check to recognize HatPOV and assign the UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT to the corresponding Hat POVs, voila, playing Art Of Fighting on WinKawak is now possible .

 

I dont know what category this may fit in, its not really much about the PS3 and more about the HFS3, a PS3 accessory. So if a mod has an issue, please feel free to move it or delete it. I spent countless hours doing trial and error and various programs to come to this conclusion, and I'm sure I'm not alone on this.

Today I just got the Soul Calibur 4 Hori Fighting Stick.  I want to say for the record that the the controller works flawlessly with both of my XP computers (one amd, one intel). No drivers had to be installed at all!

 

It works great for MAME32 or SNES emulators, and probably NES emulators as well.  Relive your old school arcade gaming, and get this!

 

Oh yea, it works great for PS3 too!

Hi, can you verify for me in Win XP whether the joystick directions (up,down,left,right) are recognized as "directions" or HUD when you go into 'Control Panel', then 'Controller'. Thanks.

In control panel, the stick is recognized as POV, which could be a problem for some games or emulators. In MAME32 it works perfectly without a third party driver.

Hi, Does anybody know if the fs3dry drivers work on the SP3? I've read the readme file, plugged in the stick, put the .sys and .inf files to its necessary folders, and installed the driver at the USB HID driver properties. however, it showed amessage like this: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

 

What should I do? Please help!!

Vista user here. Didn't need drivers at all, just plug in and that's it.

Hi,

 

 Many thanks for posting the driver to enable HatPOV controls in other emulators. Do you know if it's possible to use two of these sticks on a PC for playing 2 player games using this driver? 

 

Many thanks.
