Looks to me like the driver loaded fine (it assigned a comport.... COM3) but doesn't know what to do with it as you still have to load the drivers for the mainboard and video card. That's what all of the exclamation points are in the list.
You should have a cd for the mainboard that has the installation utility on it.

yes it kind of works? is there a way to zero the encoder again?
tables are leaning to the right, but if i repeatedly hit the flipper button it leans left?

Sorry, missed the notification on this post.

The nudge controller automatically zeros when the computer 1st initializes the usb controller. A subroutine in the firmware reads the accelerometer numerous times, calculates the average reading and applies it as an offset to set zero. Depending on the firmware that you are using (V1 had numerous revisions) there should be no need to calibrate the plunger in the control panel. Incorrect calibration can definitely affect the zero point as it will change it away from the firmware point. try clicking the reset to defaults button on the calibration page in the gamepad settings control panel and see if that takes you back to the center.

Having the gains cranked up too high in the game control panel can cause this issue as well. I don't know where you have the control box mounted, but the flippers shouldn't be affecting the nudging under normal circumstances.
