    My friend has the ps2 version of the game, i have the pc version of the game, we only have the one controller. i was wondering if it is possible to set up the ps2 guitar to be compatible with the pc version, i have a usb-ps2 controller converter. and i tested the compatibility and the computer recognizes it.

    When i go into the game, there are is only options on how to setup the keyboard and no controller. i know the pc version supports a usb guitar. i just dont see an other available option to set it up

    thanks in advance

    are u playing guitar hero with an emulator, or are you playing frets on fire? usually, well when my cousin used the guitar on the pc, there are options to change the buttons and such on the settings.

    i dont think this belongs in the right forum though.

    Version 1.2 of Frets on Fire is notorious for that, but it only happens maybe 40% of the time... persevere! (LOL) or get the 1.1.324, the old version.

    As for Guitar Hero, all you need do is get a PS2 to USB adapter for the controller, then use that as your connected controller interface for GH. It should work, it worked for me with Frets. I certainly hope it does as I may potentially try this as well soon.

    I'm dubious of this fact. In any case, you could try using Xpadder to configure the controller instead.
