out of the 4 pads i OWN, all 4 dpads work perfectly. True some of the older ones make a clicking sound where the pad hits off the plastic and it can be a little clumsy, but they work 100%
try some finger exercises.
I have a bad habit of throwing my controller on the floor when i get pissed at a game, never broke one, you must have just got unlucky.
Finger exercises?? lol at that.
Thats not the issue. The dpads were totally jacked. Its like there was a small piece of plastic under the dpad that was outta place. I could give a rats ass about a clicking sound.. Would've been nice if that was the problem. The problem would occur when pushing right or down on the dpad. It would either do nothing at all and I would have to push it over and over again just to get it to do anything, or it would do the total opposite of what it was supposed to do when pushing right or down. Left and up were fine. Every controller I had a problem with was bought at walmart. Maybe they just had a bad shipment or something, but there was a problem. It was very frustrating while playing oblivion.. u know, hot keying the spells and navigating through the hundreds I had etc. The dpad gets used a hell of a lot in that game.
