I can't get the briefing screen (where it says what you need to do to get tapes) to appear when using Pete's D3D plugins (I've tried both). I've set the off-screen drawing to extended as that fixed missing screens on Smackdown 2, but it didn't work on Tony Hawk. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix this. Any help would be very much apprecciated. Thank you!
It's a 32mb TNT2 by the way. The objectives screen does show up in software mode, but in Pete's Software Renderer the actual game goes really slow and jerky, and in Knacks Software GPU It will only show half the screen for some reason. I would use VGS, but that hates my SideWinder pad, even with the Aldo Vargas' VGS JoyPad patch. So I'm still slightly stumped. Please tell me if you have any ideas.
VGS does work with the pad but it keeps thinking I'm pressing buttons when I'm not, normally the Start button. Even if I create a SideWinder profile for it it still does it. It makes me think that it is detecting the pad and screwing up on purpose. I just use ePSXe now, that works fine with my gamepad, but not with Tony Hawk. I just wish it would work.
Can you calibrate SideWinder gamepads? It works fine with everything else though, only VGS isn't working properly with it. Do you think it could be because I downloaded the full version of VGS of the internet? It seems to have the ModChip patch pre-installed. Could it have had a bad patch installed on it?
