Hey bros,

So this is really annoying. My Xbox 360 controller WILL NOT register within AC3's options. I know for a fact that it works perfectly well and am at a total loss.

It gets better.

My Xbox controller also does not work for Splinter Cell Conviction, which is the ONLY other game that utilizes Uplay that is installed on my computer. I'm sensing a pattern here. Is there some sort of additional driver that I need to download? This is really quite angering to me.

Any advice would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

I can't get mine to work either... let me know if you find the solution. Also having problems with registering the game as well. Bought on Steam.

I run the redcl0ud XBCD driver on mine. Now with AC games you do generally have to noodle with the controls and customize them a bit but other than that it works like a champ. I use the official Microsoft driver for all other games I play with a controller (namely Batman games).

Just to add as this might help some of you: http://vba-m.com/forum/Thread-xbcd-0-2-7-release-info-updates-will-be-posted-here

I have the same problem. Kind of stupid they did not test that the main PC controller works with the game. I am using the Xbox controller wireless adapter and a wireless controller.

Its annoying because I want to use this game with Steams Big Picture mode.

I refuse to install third party software to fix their bug.

Hey guys... maybe you did the same as I.
I was trying to play with some random USB controller, with those Xbox 360 emulators, before buying the MS wireless receiver.
Just deleted the emulators files from the AC3 directory and it worked.

Same issue. I've never installed any third-party software, emulators, anything, etc., for controllers. Only used 360 controller for games and it's been a dream.

And then I get AC3. It clearly knows I have a controller plugged in because all the buttons presented are controller buttons, but it doesn't respond to it at all. I've checked and the controller is working with all the other games it normally works with.

Fix this, Ubisoft! I like your games but this kind of technical incompetence is obscene.

Yeah I understand -- if Ubi's developers programmed the game to properly operate the Microsoft XBOX360 Controller with the base Microsoft driver it would be fine (all my other games use the Microsoft driver without a hiccup), but since they don't, and don't seem interested in fixing their screwups, I resorted to the XBCD driver which works like a champ for AC games. :)

As posted above, those with the issue, please contact support.


I personally used the wired official Xbox pad, and it works 100% - I have installed the official windows 7 drivers.


Those having the issue, please remember to advise support if you have the wireless version and OS since that maybe important!

I have had ZERO problems with ANY game using my xbox 360 wired controller for PC

AC2, however, does not even DETECT my controller as an option in the controls menu. Dear God, I'm glad I only payed 5 dollars for this because I'm regretting EACH PENNY i spent on it.

I've been through about 3 dozen forums and guides and supposed fixes, computer restarts, emulators, driver updates, everything. Why is this happening.
