I recently received my MemoryCard with FMCB on it and wanted to test it with LotR: Return of the King. Starting the game was fine, no problem at all. But I couldn't skip the intro by pressing Start or Select or whatever, so I had to watch it... (felt like watching the whole trilogy). When it finally went ingame (somehow without menu) it said that I should plug in a gamepad. He didn't recognize my non-original one, that, beside of the missing Sony label, looks the same as an original and always worked fine.
I also have an original gamepad, but since a longer period of not being used it doesn't work anymore. I can plug it in, the "Analog" LED lights up but the controller always sends "Up" and "Down" controls and signals like pressing "X" are not transfered. BUT LotR accepts the controller, although I can't play with it...
Does anyone have an idea of what went wrong here?!
I think it doesn't have to do with FMCB, because Buzz! works fine and the non-original controller works fine in the PS2 menu.
