    Weird ps3 controller glitch

    Post by Yesuurd on Thu Mar 08, 2012 2:19 pm

    Been having this weird thing happen and I don't think it's the controller because it happened to me in 2 ps3 with different ones, there are times that my charcter rolls by himself when I press attack and sometimes,the controller does something weird and suddenly it changes my left and right weapons to nothing, since I usually only equip one of each, has this happened to anyone?

    The only thing I think might be culprit in this is having low battery, maybe when the control is in low it
    can start doing weird stuff.

    Weird. My controllers work just fine.

    I've never seen a glitch like that in a PS3 controller. The only time I have witnessed similar issues is with devices with water damage in their past. That is weird.

    Weird. Do you only have issues with it when playing Dark Souls?

    I haven't experienced this exact thing, but I have experienced what I think is a different glitch. Sometimes, usually only when I'm fighting something large or there's a lot happening on screen (like the blight swamp elevator) the R2 attack hesitates. Like I'll push it, have a good 10 seconds of doing whatever, and then the R2 attack will activate.

    Not a glitch, your controller is messed up, my old controller would switch weapons by itself sometimes when I played MW3 or there would be a delay when I hit a button, wear and tear, just get a new one.

    This happens to me all the time, at least the random rolling thing. I don't know if the inputs get stacked up or confused or what, but sometimes after a fight when I go to move or do something instead I'll roll in a random direction. There can be significant lag between whatever I was doing and the roll (i.e., I can stand there for a while) so it's not simply some slight misperception I have about combat speed. It's more like "Ok, he's dead, let's go back up these stairs oh I instead rolled off a cliff without touching the roll button."

    I have 4 wireless PS3 controllers of varying ages and they all do it. I also keep them fully charged. I think it's something in the game itself.

    Your controller has been invaded by a Spirit of Vengeance. Watch your ears.

    Well, I did sin by occasionally using it for games that aren't Dark Souls

    Lol, nah I don't think it's the controller...it can't be happening in two different systems and 2 different controlers, it hasn't happened again though.

    It happens to me all the time, but only on my 'old' sixaxis controllers, both of them actually. Occasionally my triangle button will get pushed causing me to two hand. The will also randomly just walk forward or get disconnected, which has costed me roughly 50 humanity and about 500k souls.

    I've also had controller issues since launch. It got a bit better after the patch, but it still exists. I assume it's a caching issue, and it mostly happens in pve, so I think it's related to the constant game-saving.
    This game also have a tendency to cache all moves I don't want to commit to, and ignore the ones I want (like drinking estus after a bs).

    My issue is definitely the controller. When I play a DVD it will bring up the menu randomly. I have to manually turn the controller off after pressing play.
