Sprinting doesn't work in Madden 2005 -- why???? Help!!!

Postby da_Bucs » Sat Oct 22, 2022 11:04 pm

Recently bought Madden 2005 for the PC for nostalgia reasons (old Xbox is in storage and I wanted a future-proofed way to play it).

Was having an absolute blast getting back into the game, but then I noticed something strange and baffling.

My RBs cannot[/i] and [i]will not sprint unless they are running at perfect 90-degree angles, or due N S E W cardinal directions (and without using the spring button--it's as if that button actually slows them down somehow!).

They cannot spring diagonally, and every time they try to turn a corner on a toss run they go back to "jogging" mode and are instantly caught by CBs and OLBs who of course sprint normally no problem.

This problem occurred on both my PowerA (2020) third party controller, and, most shockingly, on my Logitech F310 (2022?) that I recently purchased for optimal compatibility.

In addition to the inability to sprint, the dual-shock vibrations do not function on the Logitech controller when in-game for some reason.

Any help on this issue would be great -- I have found virtually nothing about this online except an old IGN forum post from 2005 with the exact same problem (they were using a Thrustmaster controller): https://www.ignboards.com/threads/madde ... .78715144/

I'm in agony. The game is virtually ruined without the ability to sprint on offence (special teams is like this too -- every ball carrying activity is tarnished and running is unbearably sluggish. Imagine only being able to jog on kickoff returns).

Please please please if you have any solutions I'd be very grateful (everything else seems to work fine with my Logitech controller....so weird)
