Belkin Nostromo SpeedPad n50 on Windows 7 vs. Windows 8
I've just upgraded to Windows 8.1 and it freaked me out when Total Game Control told me that it can't find my Belkin Nostromo SpeedPad n50. I won't play any games without it. But luckily, it was just because Windows 8.1 has gotten smarter about the n50.
You see, Windows 7 recognized the Belkin Nostromo SpeedPad n50 alright. But it couldn't figure out what game controller it is. Therefore, it simply identified the n50 as "?". So that's what it showed in Total Game Control.
But Windows 8 actually recognizes the Belkin Nostromo SpeedPad n50 as "3 axis 10 button gamepad". Ok, it still doesn't know it is the n50, but it's a start. With Total Game Control, I just have to tell each n50 profile to use "3 axis 10 button gamepad" instead of "?".
I have same problem any solution found,. speedpad n50 Windows 8 64bit
You just have to select "3 axis 10 button gamepad" in Total Game Control.
To get the N50 working in Windows 7 see:
Essentially use the N52 drivers then edit the registry to rename it as the Nostromo n50 Speedpad

That's awesome, Blagard. I am now on Windows 8.1. I will see if this trick works on Windows 8. Thanks.
I just tried the Drivers link and the files are not there anymore but the file I downloaded at the time is attached.
Just checked and that exe file contains the lot! includes the Loadout Manager and editor - I'll go back to sleep now ;-)
Haha! I just tried it on Windows 8.1 and it works! That is awesome. Thank you, Blagard.
OMG You are a life saver... thanks for the file!!
Bringing my N50 into work for macro use. You just saved me a lot of time.
Bit of a necro-post but I can report success with drivers and loadout manager & editor on Win 10 with the download link you provided.
The key for the n50 is missing in the /Joystick/OEM/folder, however you just have to manually make the key and subkey values for the n50 under the /Joystick/OEM/ folder exactly as shown in this picture from ThePcMechanic's blog:
Reboot and it will work.
Thank you, you saved my wrist and my game. (Archeage)
Made this process easier by creating a registry file. Download the attached to Windows. Double-click it to apply the new name to registry.
