For you guys who experience gamepad problems here a solution (it worked perfectly for me!):
(1): Goto http://www.tocaedit.com/IB/index.php...ads&showfile=4
and download XBOX360 Controller Emulator, extract the files into the game directory.
(2): Goto http://www.tocaedit.com/IB/index.php...ds&showfile=45
and download x360ce dinput8.dll, a file that is for use with XBOX360 Controller Emulator. This is also the file that allows the emulator to work for the mini-ninja game. Same thing as above, extract it into the game directory. (Note: The zip file will contain 3 folder, u will only need the dll file in the"Spoofer" folder)
(3): Play the game!!
