    It was happening to me too, try starting the game with the wireless receiver disconected from the pc, then when you get to the menu, connect it and turn on your controller, it'll work just fine

    OP states he is using wired controller not wireless.

    Still the same could apply, just plug the controller in rather than a wireless receiver.

    yo mason, i posted up a link in the initial thread. I got everything working smoothly now. FINALLLYLYYYYYYawklmndfqag

    basically need to tinker around with driver settings for the controller/gamepad. delete/disable uninstall other conflicting drivers that may be interupting (i guess) with the controller.

    keep in mind though that the fix is meant for XBOX360 wired gamepads. not sure if thats what you're using.

    When it freezes. it should unfreeze after you unplug it.

    If that doesn't work, try updating your drivers: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/downloads

    I went to games, then downloads. After that, my controller worked fine.

    Remember that everyone's computer is different... there are so many hardware and software configurations that it is almost impossible to diagnose what the fault could be at times

    As a general rule make sure all your firmwares for all your devices (internal and peripheral) are up to date
