well today i finally received my ps2 network adapter from ebay, loaded up the hard-drive with 13 of my games and connected it to my PAL Fat V7 39002.. everything works fine except for one thing.
the rumble in the controller is not working, in ANY game.. i have tried ESR games / original games / hdd games.
i even removed the network adapter and hard-drive then tried esr/original games again, still with no luck.
tried running original without memcard inserted using default ps2 os, still did not work.
the controller works PERFECT on my slim ps2 79002, including rumble... so its definentally not the controller broken.
stupid thing is i cannot remember if the rumble/vibration was working before i installed the network-adapter/hdd, as i usually always played my slim until now,.... although i did play games couple weeks ago on the fat ps2 setup in the lounge on the bigger telly so i could play tomb raider with swapmagic before i got it working with esr.... i think i would of noticed if it was not working then.
right now im lost as to what the problem is, tried original game with mc/hdd removed and that didnt work, yet it works on the slim without a single problem in any game
anyone else had a problem like this? is there some sort of hidden setting i might of changed on the fat ps2? (i doubt that lol), i dont see why the only thing to stop working is rumble
sure, rumble is not needed to play games... but i sure as hell prefer it
now that i can play games off the hdd, i have no use for my slim ps2.. so am going to sell it on ebay.
but i need this problem worked out if possible first... little things like this annoy me so much, it shouldnt... but it really really does.
ANY help/suggestions greatly appreciated!
