I have had enough ....I was having trouble getting my ps2 pad connected via a usb converter to be recognise so ive gone out and bought a Saitek P2500 just so I could play this game the way it was meant to be, and same problem as before....right analogue stick doesnt work!!! now this pad is fully recognised in every game known to man , even the poor FIFA 2005 picks up this pad and that had endless pad problems.... what a crock!!! and so much for ubisoft support, ask them a question via an online form and you never get a reply....

Im just about through bothering, how much more do i have to spend to play a poxy game.

Does anyone have any ideas ????

Buy a PS2 or program the support yourself or
learn to play the way it's meant to be played (no nVidia pun intended)

If you are still relying on a gamepad to play PC games, you have not graduated from console school.

Think I will drop them a line, luckily I have found a compromise for the time being by using the profile creator with the pad to trick the right analogue into thinking its the mouse.

That works pretty good.....

And for that last comment, I was bustin games while you were still seeing your mothers titty as your source of amber nectar.... smarten up kid, have nothing useful to say ...pipe up!!

Splinter Cell plays better with a Gamepad, one of very few pc games that does. And wow, amazingly enough it was a... XBOX title , which uses GAMEPADS ...there you go, kid ...educational lesson for the day.

My Saitek P880 gamepad works wonderfully with SCCT. It was enabled and preconfigured in the options menu, too. If the game isn't recognizing your pads right analog stick correctly try messing around with the programming software that comes with Saiteks controllers, you can probably find a work-around until you figure out what the real problem is.

And to all the idiots that think SCCT plays better with a mouse and keyboard: It doesn't. The only thing that is better is aiming, in which case you just take one hand off the controller to use the mouse for a second then go back to the controller. Movement is MUCH more smooth and responsive with an analog stick, you can't get the same movement percision with your WASD keys. Period.

I'm pretty sure that just like SCPT, gamepads are officially not supported by Ubisoft. So just like laptop chipsets, it might work, but Ubisoft makes no promises to help you with it.

However, having said that, I'd LOVE to see a list of controllers that do work with the game. I much prefer the game with a pad.

Is Saitek a good brand?

SCCT supports gamepads officially. There's a whole section of the options menu dedicated to gamepad configuration.

My Saitek P880 was automatically detected and configured. Works great.
