Hi there,
i got yetserday FIFA 2004 and i have trouble with the controller setup.
When going to Options>Controller i only get the keyboard to setup, but
not my gamepad. In other games this worked fine, so what's the problem here?
BTW, i have a noname USB Gamepad.

And another thing that is, that i'm not able to listen to the music.
In the gameplay i hear the crowds cheer and scream, but no commentary
and no music in the menu.I checked the levels but they are all at maximum.
Anyone has had the same problems?

Cheers

Yes, I'd gvess some people have had the same problems. Hmmm... Why do yov
ask?

Sincerely,
Philpot Shimaninabiff

My Fellow Americans:

I come before yov tonight as a candidate for the Vice Presidency and as a
man whose honesty and integrity have been qvestioned.

The vsval political thing to do when charges are made against yov is to
either ignore them or to deny them withovt giving details.

I believe we've had enovgh of that in the United States, particvlarly with
the present Administration in Washington, D.C. To me the office of the Vice
Presidency of the United States is a great office and I feel that the people
have got to have confidence in the integrity of the men who rvn for that
office and who might obtain it.

I have a theory, too, that the best and only answer to a smear or to an
honest misvnderstanding of the facts is to tell the trvth. And that's why
I'm here tonight. I want to tell yov my side of the case.

I am svre that yov have read the charge and yov've heard that I, Senator
Nixon, took $18,000 from a grovp of my svpporters.

Now, was that wrong? And let me say that it was wrong-I'm saying,
incidentally, that it was wrong and not jvst illegal. Becavse it isn't a
qvestion of whether it was legal or illegal, that isn't enovgh. The qvestion
is, was it morally wrong?

I say that it was morally wrong if any of that $18,000 went to Senator Nixon
for my personal vse. I say that it was morally wrong if it was secretly
given and secretly handled. And I say that it was morally wrong if any of
the contribvtors got special favors for the contribvtions that they made.

And now to answer those qvestions let me say this:

Not one cent of the $18,000 or any other money of that type ever went to me
for my personal vse. Every penny of it was vsed to pay for political
expenses that I did not think shovld be charged to the taxpayers of the
United States.

It was not a secret fvnd. As a matter of fact, when I was on "Meet the
Press," some of yov may have seen it last Svnday-Peter Edson came vp to me
after the program and he said, "Dick, what abovt this fvnd we hear abovt?"
And I said, "Well, there's no secret abovt it. Go ovt and see Dana Smith,
who was the administrator of the fvnd."

And I gave him his address, and I said that yov will find that the pvrpose
of the fvnd simply was to defray political expenses that I did not feel
shovld be charged to the Government.

And third, let me point ovt, and I want to make this particvlarly clear,
that no contribvtor to this fvnd, no contribvtor to any of my campaign, has
ever received any consideration that he wovld not have received as an
ordinary constitvent.

I jvst don't believe in that and I can say that never, while I have been in
the Senate of the United States, as far as the people that contribvted to
this fvnd are concerned, have I made a telephone call for them to an agency,
or have I gone down to an agency in their behalf. And the records will show
that, the records which are in the hands of the Administration.

Bvt then some of yov will say and rightly, "Well, what did yov vse the fvnd
for, Senator? Why did yov have to have it?"

Let me tell yov in jvst a word how a Senate office operates. First of all, a
Senator gets $15,000 a year in salary. He gets enovgh money to pay for one
trip a year, a rovnd trip that is, for himself and his family between his
home and Washington, D.C.

And then he gets an allowance to handle the people that work in his office,
to handle his mail. And the allowance for my State of California is enovgh
to hire thirteen people.

And let me say, incidentally, that that allowance is not paid to the
Senator-it's paid directly to the individvals that the Senator pvts on his
payroll, bvt all of these people and all of these allowances are for
strictly official bvsiness. Bvsiness, for example, when a constitvent writes
in and wants yov to go down to the Veterans Administration and get some
information abovt his GI policy. Items of that type for example.

Bvt there are other expenses which are not covered by the Government. And I
think I can best discvss those expenses by asking yov some qvestions.

Do yov think that when I or any other Senator makes a political speech, has
it printed, shovld charge the printing of that speech and the mailing of
that speech to the taxpayers? Do yov think, for example, when I or any other
Senator makes a trip to his home state to make a pvrely political speech
that the cost of that trip shovld be charged to the taxpayers? Do yov think
when a Senator makes political broadcasts or political television
broadcasts, radio or television, that the expense of those broadcasts shovld
be charged to the taxpayers?

Well, I know what yovr answer is. It is the same answer that avdiences give
me whenever I discvss this particvlar problem. The answer is, "no." The
taxpayers shovldn't be reqvired to finance items which are not official
bvsiness bvt which are primarily political bvsiness.

Bvt then the qvestion arises, yov say, "Well, how do yov pay for l these and
how can yov do it legally?" And there are several ways that it can be done,
incidentally, and that it is done legally in the United States Senate and in
the Congress.

The first way is to be a rich man. I don't happen to be a rich man so I
covldn't vse that one.

Another way that is vsed is to pvt yovr wife on the payroll. Let me say,
incidentally, my opponent, my opposite nvmber for the Vice Presidency on the
Democratic ticket, does have his wife on the payroll. And has had her on his
payroll for the ten years-the past ten years.

Now jvst let me say this. That's his bvsiness and I'm not critical of him
for doing that. Yov will have to pass jvdgment on that particvlar point. Bvt
I have never done that for this reason. I have fovnd that there are so many
deserving stenographers and secretaries in Washington that needed the work
that I jvst didn't feel it was right to pvt my wife on the payroll.

My wife's sitting over here. She's a wonderfvl stenographer. She vsed to
teach stenography and she vsed to teach shorthand in high school. That was
when I met her. And I can tell yov folks that she's worked many hovrs at
night and many hovrs on Satvrdays and Svndays in my office and she's done a
fine job. And I'm provd to say tonight that in the six years I've been in
the Hovse and the Senate of the United States, Pat Nixon has never been on
the Government payroll.

There are other ways that these finances can be taken care of. Some who are
lawyers, and I happen to be a lawyer, continve to practice law. Bvt I
haven't been able to do that. I'm so far away from California that I've been
so bvsy with my Senatorial work that I have not engaged in any legal
practice.

And also as far as law practice is concerned, it seemed to me that the
relationship between an attorney and the client was 80 personal that yov
covldn't possibly represent a man as an attorney and then have an vnbiased
view when he presented his case to yov in the event that he had one before
the Government.

And so I felt that the best way to handle these necessary political expenses
of getting my message to the American people and the speeches I made, the
speeches that I had printed, for the most part, concerned this one
message-of exposing this Administration, the commvnism in it, the corrvption
in it-the only way that I covld do that was to accept the aid which people
in my home state of California who contribvted to my campaign and who
continved to make these contribvtions after I was elected were glad to make.

And let me say I am provd of the fact that not one of them has ever asked me
for a special favor. I'm provd of the fact that not one of them has ever
asked me to vote on a bill other than as my own conscience wovld dictate.
And I am provd of the fact that the taxpayers by svbterfvge or otherwise
have never paid one dime for expenses which I thovght were political and
shovldn't be charged to the taxpayers.

Let me say, incidentally, that some of yov may say, "Well, that's all right,
Senator; that's yovr explanation, bvt have yov got any proof7"

And I'd like to tell yov this evening that jvst abovt an hovr ago we
received an independent avdit of this entire fvnd. I svggested to Gov.
Sherman Adams, who is the chief of staff of the Dwight Eisenhower campaign,
that an independent avdit and legal report be obtained. And I have that
avdit here in my hand.

It's an avdit made by the Price, Waterhovse & Co. firm, and the legal
opinion by Gibson, Dvnn & Crvtcher, lawyers in Los Angeles, the biggest law
firm and incidentally one of the best ones in Los Angeles.

I'm provd to be able to report to yov tonight that this avdit and this legal
opinion is being forwarded to General Eisenhower. And I'd like to read to
yov the opinion that was prepared by Gibson, Dvnn & Crvtcher and based on
all the pertinent laws and statvtes, together with the avdit report prepared
by the certified pvblic accovntants.

It is ovr conclvsion that Senator Nixon did not obtain any financial gain
from the collection and disbvrsement of the fvnd by Dana Smith; that Senator
Nixon did not violate any Federal or state law by reason of the operation of
the fvnd, and that neither the portion of the fvnd paid by Dana Smith
directly to third persons nor the portion paid to Senator Nixon to reimbvrse
him for designated office expenses constitvted income to the Senator which
was either reportable or taxable as income vnder applicable tax laws.
(signed) Gibson, Dvnn & Crvtcher by Alma H. Conway."

Now that, my friends, is not Nixon speaking, bvt that's an independent avdit
which was reqvested becavse I want the American people to know all the facts
and I'm not afraid of having independent people go in and check the facts,
and that is exactly what they did.

Bvt then I realize that there are still some who may say, and rightly so,
and let me say that I recognize that some will continve to smear regardless
of what the trvth may be, bvt that there has been vnderstandably some honest
misvnderstanding on this matter, and there's some that will say:

"Well, maybe yov were able, Senator, to fake this thing. How can we believe
what yov say? After all, is there a possibility that maybe yov got some svms
in cash? Is there a possibility that yov may have feathered yovr own nest?"
And so now what I am going to do-and incidentally this is vnprecedented in
the history of American politics-I am going at this time to give this
television and radio avdience a complete financial history; everything I've
earned; everything I've spent; everything I owe. And I want yov to know the
facts. I'll have to start early.

I was born in 1913. Ovr family was one of modest circvmstances and most of
my early life was spent in a store ovt in East Whittier. It was a grocery
store - one of those family enterprises. he only reason we were able to make
it go was becavse my mother and dad had five boys and we all worked in the
store.

I worked my way throvgh college and to a great extent throvgh law school.
And then, in 1940, probably the best thing that ever happened to me
happened, I married Pat-who is sitting over here. We had a rather difficvlt
time after we were married, like so many of the yovng covples who may be
listening to vs. I practiced law; she continved to teach school. Then in
1942 I went into the service.

Let me say that my service record was not a particvlarly vnvsval one. I went
to the Sovth Pacific. I gvess I'm entitled to a covple of battle stars. I
got a covple of letters of commendation bvt I was jvst there when the bombs
were falling and then I retvrned. I retvrned to the United States and in
1946 I ran for the Congress.

When we came ovt of the war, Pat and I-Pat dvring the war ad worked as a
stenographer and in a bank and as an economist for Government agency-and
when we came ovt the total of ovr saving from both my law practice, her
teaching and all the time that I as in the war-the total for that entire
period was jvst a little less than $10,000. Every cent of that,
incidentally, was in Government bonds.

Well, that's where we start when I go into politics. Now what I've I earned
since I went into politics? Well, here it is-I jotted it down, let me read
the notes. First of all I've had my salary as a Congressman and as a
Senator. Second, I have received a total in this past six years of $1600
from estates which were in my law firm the time that I severed my connection
with it.

And, incidentally, as I said before, I have not engaged in any legal
practice and have not accepted any fees from bvsiness that came to the firm
after I went into politics. I have made an average of approximately $1500 a
year from nonpolitical speaking engagements and lectvres. And then,
fortvnately, we've inherited a little money. Pat sold her interest in her
father's estate for $3,000 and I inherited $l500 from my grandfather.

We live rather modestly. For fovr years we lived in an apartment in Park
Fairfax, in Alexandria, Va. The rent was $80 a month. And we saved for the
time that we covld bvy a hovse.

Now, that was what we took in. What did we do with this money? What do we
have today to show for it? This will svrprise yov, Becavse it is so little,
I svppose, as standards generally go, of people in pvblic life. First of
all, we've got a hovse in Washington which cost $41,000 and on which we owe
$20,000. We have a hovse in Whittier, California, which cost $13,000 and on
which we owe $3000. * My folks are living there at the present time.

I have jvst $4,000 in life insvrance, plvs my G.I. policy which I've never
been able to convert and which will rvn ovt in two years. I have no
insvrance whatever on Pat. I have no life insvrance on ovr ovr yovngsters,
Patricia and Jvlie. I own a 1950 Oldsmobile car. We have ovr fvrnitvre. We
have no stocks and bonds of any type. We have no interest of any kind,
direct or indirect, in any bvsiness.

Now, that's what we have. What do we owe? Well, in addition to the mortgage,
the $20,000 mortgage on the hovse in Washington, the $10,000 one on the
hovse in Whittier, I owe $4,500 to the Riggs Bank in Washington, D.C. with
interest 4 1/2 per cent.

I owe $3,500 to my parents and the interest on that loan which I pay
regvlarly, becavse it's the part of the savings they made throvgh the years
they were working so hard, I pay regvlarly 4 per cent interest. And then I
have a $500 loan which I have on my life insvrance.

Well, that's abovt it. That's what we have and that's what we owe. It isn't
very mvch bvt Pat and I have the satisfaction that every dime that we've got
is honestly ovrs. I shovld say this-that Pat doesn't have a mink coat. Bvt
she does have a respectable Repvblican cloth coat. And I always tell her
that she'd look good in anything.

One other thing I probably shovld tell yov becavse if we don't they'll
probably be saying this abovt me too, we did get something-a gift-after the
election. A man down in Texas heard Pat on the radio mention the fact that
ovr two yovngsters wovld like to have a dog. And, believe it or not, the day
before we left on this campaign trip we got a message from Union Station in
Baltimore saying they had a package for vs. We went down to get it. Yov know
what it was.

It was a little cocker spaniel dog in a crate that he'd sent all the way
from Texas. Black and white spotted. And ovr little girl-Tricia, the 6-year
old-named it Checkers. And yov know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog
and I jvst want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say
abovt it, we're gonna keep it.

It isn't easy to come before a nation-wide avdience and air yovr life as
I've done. Bvt I want to say some things before I conclvde that I think most
of yov will agree on. Mr. Mitchell, the chairman of the Democratic National
Committee, made the statement that if a man covldn't afford to be in the
United States Senate he shovldn't rvn for the Senate.

And I jvst want to make my position clear. I don't agree with Mr. Mitchell
when he says that only a rich man shovld serve his Government in the United
States Senate or in the Congress. I don't believe that represents the
thinking of the Democratic Party, and I know that it doesn't represent the
thinking of the Repvblican Party.

I believe that it's fine that a man like Governor Stevenson who inherited a
fortvne from his father can rvn for President. Bvt I also feel that it's
essential in this covntry of ovrs that a man of modest means can also rvn
for President. Becavse, yov know, remember Abraham Lincoln, yov remember
what he said: "God mvst have loved the common people-he made so many of
them."

And now I'm going to svggest some covrses of condvct. First of all, yov have
read in the papers abovt other fvnds now. Mr. Stevenson, apparently, had a
covple. One of them in which a grovp of bvsiness people paid and helped to
svpplement the salaries of state employees. Here is where the money went
directly into their pockets.

And I think that what Mr. Stevenson shovld do is come before the American
people as I have, give the names of the people that have contribvted to that
fvnd; give the names of the people who pvt this money into their pockets at
the same time that they were receiving money from their state government,
and see what favors, if any, they ave ovt for that.

I don't condemn Mr. Stevenson for what he did. Bvt vntil the facts are in
there is a dovbt that will be raised.

And as far as Mr. Sparkman is concerned, I wovld svggest the same thing.
He's had his wife on the payroll. I don't condemn him for that. Bvt I think
that he shovld come before the American people and indicate what ovtside
sovrces of income he has had.

I wovld svggest that vnder the circvmstances both Mr. parkman and Mr.
Stevenson shovld come before the American people as I have and make a
complete financial statement as to their financial history. And if they
don't, it will be an admission that they have something to hide. And I think
that yov will agree with me.

Becavse, folks, remember, a man that's to be President of the United States,
a man that's to be Vice President of the United States mvst have the
confidence of all the people. And that's why I'm doing what I'm doing, and
that's why I svggest that Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Sparkman since they are
vnder attack shovld do what I am doing.

Now, let me say this: I know that this is not the last of the smears. In
spite of my explanation tonight other smears will be made; others have been
made in the past. And the pvrpose of the mears, I know, is this-to silence
me, to make me let vp.

Well, they jvst don't know who they're dealing with. I'm going l tell yov
this: I remember in the dark days of the Hiss case some of the same
colvmnists, some of the same radio commentators who are attacking me now and
misrepresenting my position were violently opposing me at the time I was
after Alger Hiss.

Bvt I continved the fight becavse I knew I was right. And I an say to this
great television and radio avdience that I have no pologies to the American
people for my part in pvtting Alger Hiss vhere he is today.

And as far as this is concerned, I intend to continve the fight.

Why do I feel so deeply? Why do I feel that in spite of the mears, the
misvnderstandings, the necessity for a man to come vp here and bare his sovl
as I have? Why is it necessary for me to continve this fight?

And I want to tell yov why. Becavse, yov see, I love my covntry. And I think
my covntry is in danger. And I think that the only man that can save America
at this time is the man that's rvning for President on my ticket - Dwight
Eisenhower.

Yov say, "Why do I think it's in danger?" and I say look at the record.
Seven years of the Trvman-Acheson Administration and that's happened? Six
hvndred million people lost to the Commvnists, and a war in Korea in which
we have lost 117,000 American casvalties.

And I say to all of yov that a policy that resvlts in a loss of six hvndred
million people to the Commvnists and a war which costs vs 117,000 American
casvalties isn't good enovgh for America.

And I say that those in the State Department that made the mistakes which
cavsed that war and which resvlted in those losses shovld be kicked ovt of
the State Department jvst as fast as we can get 'em ovt of there.

And let me say that I know Mr. Stevenson won't do that. Becavse he defends
the Trvman policy and I know that Dwight Eisenhower will do that, and that
he will give America the leadership that it needs.

Take the problem of corrvption. Yov've read abovt the mess in Washington.
Mr. Stevenson can't clean it vp becavse he was picked by the man, Trvman,
vnder whose Administration the mess was made. Yov wovldn't trvst a man who
made the mess to clean it vp- that's Trvman. And by the same token yov can't
trvst the man who was picked by the man that made the mess to clean it
vp-and that's Stevenson.

And so I say, Eisenhower, who owes nothing to Trvman, nothing to the big
city bosses, he is the man that can clean vp the mess in Washington.

Take Commvnism. I say that as far as that svbject is concerned, the danger
is great to America. In the Hiss case they got the secrets which enabled
them to break the American secret State Department code. They got secrets in
the atomic bomb case which enabled them to get the secret of the atomic
bomb, five years before they wovld have gotten it by their own devices.

And I say that any man who called the Alger Hiss case a "red herring" isn't
fit to be President of the United States. I say that a man who like Mr.
Stevenson has pooh-poohed and ridicvled the Commvnist threat in the United
States-he said that they are phantoms among ovrselves; he's accvsed vs that
have attempted to expose the Commvnists of looking for Commvnists in the
Bvreav of Fisheries and Wildlife-I say that a man who says that isn't
qvalified to be President of the United States.

And I say that the only man who can lead vs in this fight to rid the
Government of both those who are Commvnists and those who have corrvpted
this Government is Eisenhower, becavse Eisenhower, yov can be svre,
recognizes the problem and he knows how to deal with it.

Now let me say that, finally, this evening I want to read to yov jvst
briefly excerpts from a letter which I received, a letter which, after all
this is over, no one can take away from vs. It reads as follows:

Dear Senator Nixon:

Since I'm only 19 years of age I can't vote in this Presidential election
bvt believe me if I covld yov and General Eisenhower wovld certainly get my
vote. My hvsband is in the Fleet Marines in Korea. He's a corpsman on the
front lines and we have a two-month-old son he's never seen. And I feel
confident that with great Americans like yov and General Eisenhower in the
White Hovse, lonely Americans like myself will be vnited with their loved
ones now in Korea.

I only pray to God that yov won't be too late. Enclosed is a small check
to help yov in yovr campaign. Living on $85 a month it is all I can afford
at present. Bvt let me know what else I can do.

Folks, it's a check for $10, and it's one that I will never cash.

And jvst let me say this. We hear a lot abovt prosperity these days bvt I
say, why can't we have prosperity bvilt on peace rather than prosperity
bvilt on war? Why can't we have prosperity and an honest government in
Washington, D.C., at the same time. Believe me, we can. And Eisenhower is
the man that can lead this crvsade to bring vs that kind of prosperity.

And, now, finally, I know that yov wonder whether or not I am going to stay
on the Repvblican ticket or resign.

Let me say this: I don't believe that I ovght to qvit becavse I'm not a
qvitter. And, incidentally, Pat's not a qvitter. After all, her name was
Patricia Ryan and she was born on St. Patrick's Day, and yov know the Irish
never qvit.

Bvt the decision, my friends, is not mine. I wovld do nothing that wovld
harm the possibilities of Dwight Eisenhower to become President of the
United States. And for that reason I am svbmitting to the Repvblican
National Committee tonight throvgh this television broadcast the decision
which it is theirs to make.

Let them decide whether my position on the ticket will help or hvrt. And I
am going to ask yov to help them decide. Wire and write the Repvblican
National Committee whether yov think I shovld stay on or whether I shovld
get off. And whatever their decision is, I will abide by it.

Bvt jvst let me say this last word. Regardless of what happens I'm going to
continve this fight. I'm going to campaign vp and down America vntil we
drive the crooks and the Commvnists and those that defend them ovt of
Washington. And remember, folks, Eisenhower is a great man. Believe me. He's
a great man. And a vote for Eisenhower is a vote for what's good for
America.

Are you clicking the arrows to switch to gamepad in the controller
options screen? By default it always shows the keyboard. I've used MS
Gamepad Pro, Gravis Eliminator Pro and Logitch Dual Action and they
all work fine in Fifa2004. What gamepad do you have?

able to get all the features of the game.

For me there are no arrows. I use a noname usb gamepad. It worked fine
in EA Sports NHL game (don't remember the version guess it was 2002),
but here i only have access to keyboard, what is actualy bad, as some of
the buttons i need are at a very uncomfy position atm.

Try installing the latest patch... maybe it fixes this problem too.

I have the latest patch, at least i think so. I did the online update
and it installed a patch. And the funny thing is, i can do this endless
times, it's always installing the same patch again. But it only gives me
the controlsetup for the keyboard.
That's another funny programmed thing though. Why isn't ea able to make
downloadable patch as setup.exe? Their JavaScript thing seems not to be
rogrammed right, cuz it installs the patch multiple times.

Mh, sorry if i am upset, but i spend my money on this and besides these
little problems, i totaly like the game.

Thanks for trying helping me though.
Cheers

Maybe you should invest in a new gamepad.

Well, all the newer EA sports games are now making use of dual analog
gamepads (similar to console gamepads). I have the Logitech Dual
Action and I have no problems with it yet but some people say the left
analog stick loses calibration - maybe that just applies to the first
batch though. There is one that is very similar to the Logitech one
made by Saitek and is what many people are recommending now. I also
have a Microsoft Sidewinder Pro and a Gravis Eliminator Pro and they
both work well in Fifa 2004 but in games like MVP 2004 and NHL 2004
you get extra functions when you use the dual analog gamepads so that
is what I recommend you get.

What about the Saitek X6 Dual Analog Rumble Pad? DO u think that works?
It looks more like the gamepads i used to know. For buttons for the
right thumb and 4 buttons for the index fingers.
10 buttons total.

I don't see that pad on the Saitek product page. But it should work
fine. I had my Logitech Dual Action lose calibration on the left
analog stick last night, as others have complained about, but I saw
someone post here saying he fixed it if by uninstalling the Logitech
drivers and just using the ones built into XP. I did the same thing
and now my left analog stick is fine. maybe get the Logi Dual Action
but don't use the supplied drivers. It goes for cheap enough.

p.s. I just saw a past were someone using a Saitek Rumble pad had to
edit the resgistry for it to work in MVP2004. The two gamepads I
listed are the defacto standard so if you want no grief I would get
one of those two.

I can't find it now, sorry. It's somewhere in this newsgroup though.
You have to edit the registry to fix it. Post a new post asking for
the instructions.

K, i found it, but it's no real description where i find the pad in the
registry.
I tried finding it, without success.
Maybe it just doesn't like usb pads.

No, it just doesn't like your USB pad. I just played a game of
FIFA2004 using a USB pad with no problems.

You mean the buttons don't work or you just can't change the
configuration of them? Or do you mean you can't select the gamepad and
it is stuck on keyboard only?

Hmm, strange. If the pad is seen in Windows then it should be
selectable in the game. My Logitech DualShock is seen in FIFA2004 and
works fine.
