Hi, I just received my total control 3 in the mail today. It doesnt seem to work with the start button. Is there any way for me to remedy this? theres a little black button that I can press, but It doesn't seem to do anything.
Do you mean the "Start" button on the Saturn controller, or the "Pause" button on the Total Control 3 ?
Please note that the "Pause" button is only useful for the game "Virtual On", it is useless for any other games. As the there is no "pause" button on the Saturn Virtual On controller, we added a "Pause" button on the Total Control 3.
There is a switch on Total Control 3. If you are using a joypad, please set the switch to the right, beside the DC joypad logo. If you are using a Virtual On Stick, please set the switch to the left, beside the Virtual On Stick logo. Thanks.
I'm using the Knight 3D Saturn controller, for Beats of Rage on DC only 1 button works. I set it to proper setting on Saturn controller and TC3 is to left (tried all combinations and I can only get 1 button to work, the A jump button.
"I mean the "start" button on the controller. I suppose It only works with certain games? Also, I cannot seem to get "L" or "R" to work on the dreamcast.
I've noticed that some games work fine, Some only half of the buttons work. The rest don't work at all. Is that normal?"
First, thank you for answering my question so quick.
"For TC3, the left side of the switch is "DC Twin stick", the right switch is "normal DC joypad". Unless you are playing "Virtual ON", you should set the switch to the right side."
Okay I read that already above, doesn't answer my question, but okay.
"We haven't tested that game. Seems that "Beats of Rage" is not an official DC game. "
It's not. It's a homebrew game. But it should still work because it plays perfect with a dc controller.
"You may try this game with a common DC joypad and see if it works first."
I did. It works but not with TC3. I tried combinations of left and right TC3 switch and stuff, and switched buttons on my Saturn 3D controller. Only 1 button works for the game which needs 4 buttons to play.
Here is the game you can test yourself, only jump button works with TC3.
As other person said, start button on my Saturn controller doesn't work when hooked up to TC3. Yes I set switch to right by DC logo on TC3. And other way, just as a test. Nothing. Start button works on my controller hooked up to my Saturn for instance so it isn't my controller that is the problem. Start button doesn't work for NBA2K2 when my Saturn controller is hooked up to TC3. Why ? Test it yourself to see what I mean. I'm not too happy this adapter doesn't work for most of my DC official games. Can I have a refund ?
