I recently picked up a DC fishing rod controller in a system lot and had a hankering to try Bass Fishing and Marine fishing.
Unfortunately the controller (though it is nearly new in box and looks well kept) doesn't seem to work at all. No button response, nothing from the analog stick. Thinking the controller was the problem, I purchased a second one but still no dice.
At this point I've tried 2 different controllers on 2 different dreamcasts. I tried the controllers both in ports 1 and 2 (with a standard controller in the 2nd player port as described in the manual). I've connected with the cord extension and without. I tried two different fishing games (both clean, one was sealed) as well as Soul Calibur. Nothing.
What am I doing wrong? I googled and looked around the forums a bit don't see anyone else with the problem.
Can anyone help? I've never wanted to fish this badly in my entire life.
Both controllers are first party. All the devices + games involved are US NTSC. It's possible some component in the controllers is fried or worn out. I'd like to rule out user or connection error before I buy yet another one though. I am using the DC through the VGA box but (since the fishing games both display) I can imagine that's causing the problem. I can also control the games with a standard controller.
