What's new

Controller plugin does not initialize for some oddly reason.


New member
For some reason, when I start up Project 64 1.6, it says 'Input plugin failed to initialize', and when I open any rom, trying to press start, which is enter on the keyboard, does absolutely nothing.

Trying to configure the controller plugin brings up an the same error and that the configure is disabled.

What should I do to avoid this?

Project64 2.3.2 works fine, however.

2.3.2 actually outputs a 'could not create DirectInput object' while opening a rom for the N-Rage for PJ64.

I think he just prefers the old version 1.6 of project 64. It's still being used by a lot of people, who dislikes the latest version.
