The game refuses to acknowledge my controller, can't do anything with it. I'm using a USB Xbox 360 playing on the final release. I've tried recalibrating and checking audio/joystick tab.

Just gonna throw it out there that I am considering using a program to map mouse and other controls to it for ease of setup, if you want to just recommend something for that, it is appreciated.

Did you select it in the launcher?

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

There's also a mouse script (not sure if it's still working) for FSO.

Mouse script? Do you mean the ingame option for using your mouse to control the ship?

Try going to control panels > Devices and Printers. Right click on your gamepad and choose Game Controller Settings > Advanced. Ensure that your gamepad is the preferred device for older programs. That has been known to help in the past.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

No, there's a script that allows your mouse to act in a joystick-like manner.  Link in my signature.  But do check what karajorma said first.
