View Full Version : Weird problem with Devil may cry 3.

03-26-2005, 12:46 AM
Whenever i execute a sword combo or press the shoot button, the screen will pause and a prompting message will come out asking me to plug in the dual shock 2 controller. It happens most of the time whenever i attack. The message will not show up when i am running or walking around. Is there something wrong with my controller or perhaps my disc is dirty or is it my PS2? It's frustrating...

I have never experienced this problem all this while. Bought the japanese version on it's release date.

I noticed this same problem when my brother was playing God of War on my PS2. In fact, it did it twice in a row. Hmmmm....

This frequently happened to me while playing Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal.

I had this sort of problem but it was because of my defective controller.

I never had this problem, oh well, sounds like you guys have crappy controllers or bad controller ports.

Try playing some other games with the same controller and see if it still does it.

My controller works well with other games including GOW. This particular game(DMC 3) only gives me problems. :(

It was the controller when I had that problem.

One of my controllers crapped out entirely on me too.

Hope this doesn't mean that PS2 dual shocks don't have a time limit.
