Gamepad Sidestep Glitch WORSE Post-Patch? (Also, where's our pinball?)

The glitch that causes random side-steps (which happens with some non-360 gamepads) seems to have WORSENED. Before the latest patch, I could stop it by simply starting up a Modern Sonic level (I used Green Hill Zone Act 2; not sure if that matters), then pausing and quitting. Then the glitch would be gone until the next time I started up the game, at which point I would go in and quit again. Now, that doesn't help at all.

Also, where's the pinball DLC that was supposed to come out today?

Is this the glitch that causes the left bumper and/or trigger to act like it's being hit repeatedly, causing insane sidesteps? because this is happening to me, and it also makes it almost impossible to view anything on the hub menu, and repeatedly zooms in and out giving me motion sickness.
I was having SO MUCH FUN until this started happening!

I'm using a Nyko Airflow EX...

AND YEAH, WHERE'S THE PINBALL GAME!!?!

That's EXACTLY the glitch I'm referring to.

I use a Logitech Rumblepad 2 and I'm having this issue too. As soon as modern Sonic hits the ground after that first brief run, he starts going nuts with the sidestep. I can't make him stop. It's absolutely unplayable in its current state.

having the same problem, but here is a solution. use joy to key (free) or xpadder to bind the default keys to your controller and play the game in keyboard mode. the only draw back is you are going to sacrifice analog movement, but that shouldn't be a problem.

I used to have that problem too (PS2 to USB controller), but I got myself a 360 gamepad today anyways, so that problem just solved itself. lol
Also, WHERE IS THE PINBALL DLC.

I've heard from many people that using x360ce to emulate an XBox 360 controller will fix this problem.

This bug is absolutely infuriating!! I was thoroughly enjoying the game until it surfaced. I also use a ps2 controller to usb, and even disabling the key itself (in keyboard and controller mode) doesn't work.

So much for recommending this game >.<

I recommend you report this bug to Sega, I know it's probably been reported before, but extra attention might finally bring a resolution.

Done and done. Good advice, I encourage everyone who reads this thread to also do this.

I've been receiving this bug as well.

Half-way through Seaside Hill, it pretty much forces me to side-step to the left, over and over and over and over again.

In some of the other modern levels, it does it erratically and at random. In another level I was playing, it decided to do it half-way through just like Seaside Hill.

Something in these levels keeps triggering it. I believe it's the way the camera adjusts. I don't think there is a camera, but it forces sonic in a certain direction to trigger the camera movement. Whatever's doing it forces the left-top button to stay stuck.

Edit:

Looks like using the XBox 360 controller emulator fixes that, I don't know how to use it though, since I only have a XInput controller.

This guy's solution solved my problem. This is my reply from the bug report thread:

The way you properly use this is to put it in the game folder of Sonic Generations (Steam/Common/Sonic Generations - On my computer) and setup whatever works with your controller from the presets. Press save, exit, and it generates the appropriate DLL file for the game.

Solved my issue so far. I suggest this for anyone else who's having this problem.
I highly suggest this tool. It fixed all my problems and actually made the game play way better. I'm zooming through levels as Modern Sonic better than I had been previously.
