Driver Installation Woes?

There are customers who would still have problems installing the driver correctly.

Below is one common problem or mistake made during installation.

When you are being prompted to point to the driver location to complete the driver installation, please remember to point to the folder when you first install the driver package, NOT the Installer exe.

Below is the difference between the two, on the left the original driver package (downloaded from Bannco website), while the right is the folder created by the driver package, with 7 files inside.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards

All FRAGnSteins Patched And Tested!

Due to some issues on customers' end to patch FRAGnStein correctly to the latest firmware, causing some left controllers unuseable (unsynable or sluggish L1/L2 responses), we replace one to one to those who have problems. We apologized for the inconveniences caused both to our customers' precious time and efforts to exchange for a new set.

Today, we have completely patched and tested all FRAGnSteins in our stock to ensure that future interested customers do not have to face the same problem from the earlier batches of customers.

During our patching exercise today, we realised that you do not need to rematch your Mouse and Left controller when u are patching to firmware 1.7. Just unplug after patching and replug. And press the mouse start button and the left controller PS button. It should just work correctly.

Bannco has further announced some optimization steps to set up your mouse for MW2. Please refer to Bannco website.

Happy Fragging!

FRAGnStein Driver Installation & Firmware 1.7

As part of our support to the local community, we would like to describe more on the proper setup you need  to get the maximuum value from your FRAGnStein.

FRAGnStein works immediately in any PC you would plug in, recognizing as a standard Windows HID device. But this is catchy because you would still need their driver to get it to setup mode for firmware patching and mapping.

FRAGnStein Driver

Please refer to to install it on your WIN XP or Vista 32 OS. Follow the steps.

For Vista64 & Win 7, please refer to

Please take note to make sure to install this driver correctly. As you would be prompted a couple of times to install the driver. Some of the guys we know only let it install on the first prompt and skip the rest. Chances are it would still work but incomplete, and you would have problems on later part to patch firmware.

Firmware Patch (Version 1.7)

Bannco would patch their firmware every now and then to optimize the mouse responses until it is completely tweeked. We strongly recommended that you try the current version 1.7. It remove all previous known lags on the L1/L2/R1/R2 buttons. The mouse is also much smoother.

We have tested FRAGnStein with the lastest firmware 1.7. So, we can highly say that it worked well!

Follow the below link to see how you can patch. It is quite easy and would take less than 30 sec.

For the download of the firmware. Please click this below link.

During the start of the firmware patch, it is good to have a 2nd mouse hooked, because the FRAGnStein would be sleeping. Press the dongle button and plug in at the same time to your PC USB port, holding for 2 to 5 seconds, and clicking on the firmware exe using the spare mouse. You should come to a GUI screen with the buttons of update and RF active.

Please refer to the screenshot below.

Once done unplug and replug to either your PC or PS3. Volia!

Should you have problems in and between these steps, please do not hesitate to email us with your contact number.

We are preparing an active HOTLINE soon to take care of your problems with FRAGnStein.

We got you guys covered. Keep on Fragging!

Best Regards

24 Months Warranty! That's Right!

Many PS3 fraggers are still weighing between FRAGnStein and the other brand, which one as a smart gaming consumer should you go for?

If you are in other countries, it probably doesn't matter!

But here in Singapore, We @PowerGamers would honour and support the 24 months warranty against any manufacturing defects (Damages due to wear and tear are not inclusive, but we would still fix and recover the set for you at the required purchased spare part costs.)

As long as the sets are purchased from our authorized resellers!

As a matter of fact, we are 100% confident that your FRAGnStein would be the longest lasting controller you ever need for PS3!

We would be trained by Bannco to go into local RMA and recovery of any damaged sets.

So, keep on fragging!

Removing Keyboard for PC FPS Games!

Referring to the below PC Configuration screen for FRAGnStein, it is clearly illustrated that you can easily remove your keyboard as a primary WASD controller! No more aching left wrist and cramped fingers! We have been testing with many keyboard replacements in PC based fps games. This could be the next big way how PC based fps games can be played.

The really cool thing about FRAGnStein is that both the controller (Nuchuck) and Mouse can be used independently or together providing a high level of flexbility with your next fps session.

Of course this is only half of the immersive effects we are trying to build on our range of product offerings. Watch out for more details how we can further enhance fps games on PC platforms.

Best Regards
