If you can tell me how to fix my mistake, I'd appreciate it. I was playing FF7 when I got to the first save point. I went to it, and it told me I didn't have any memory cards inserted. So I went to press the F1 button to quicksave, and accidentally hit F5 when I was reaching for my controller again. The controller stopped working. When I hit F5 again to reenable the controller, everything came back BUT the analog controls. They don't work at all. Even after I quit, restarted the program, and restarted FF7, the analog controls would not work. I went back and reconfigured the controller, and it still didn't work. The analog doesn't work at all anymore and the control pad on this thing is for crap and barely functions. >_> Can somebody tell me how to get the analog back? ;_;

Did you look in gamepad's config in ePSXe to see what is enabled? Maybe there's only 'digital' option... Switch to Digital/Analog and it should work.

Yeah, that was the first thing I checked when I was reconfiguring my gamepad. It's set to Digital/Analog, it just refuses to acknowledge I'm using the analog controls.

I did that for 15 minutes, it never came back. And now whenever the program starts I HAVE to push F5 so it recognizes my controller...

just do what Hyuga said, go into the controller config to change the mode.

I did that first thing, it didn't help. I even deleted the ePSXe registry entries so it'd be a clean slate, and deleted that ePSXe and put ePSXe into a different directory. And it still refuses to acknowledge my analog controls. I know that the program can tell they're there, I can set the analog controls easily in the controller configuration, and Game Controllers in my Control Panel registers the buttons as well. But when I start the game, I get nothing.

i also find it strange that you were using analog controls in FF7 when FF7 doesnt support analog control at all.

I had the analog mapped to the d-pad because like I've said, my d-pad is barely functional. I probably should have made that clear. ;>_>
After I hit F5, the d-pad went back to being the d-pad and the analog wasn't working at all. And now I can't make the emulator recognize anything BUT the d-pad being the d-pad and the analog controls not working no matter what settings I change in the controller configuration.

you're going to have to set the emulator to digital only mode, and then configure your analog stick as the Dpad buttons.

...*Headdesks*
This is why I dropped out of college, I cannot figure out the obvious. -_-; Thanks, it's working now.
Though I am still curious despite fixing the problem, as to why the analog would have stopped working after I hit F5. It had been working just fine up to that point.

its because FF7 doesnt support analog. by pressing the F5 button you are effectively pressing that little button on the Dual Shock that says "analog". go ahead, try it on the real PSX. pop in FF7, play for a bit, and then turn on Analog mode. none of the controls will work. exactly the same thing with ePSXe ;)

I thought this problem was addressed a few months back?
Check the CD Jewel Case at the back next time :p

FF8 supports analog controls but NOT FF7.

haha, that is true, the back of the CD tells you all the stuff in the game. well...actually Japanese greatest hits doesnt. i have MGS:Integral NTSC/J greatest hits (which i bought in Japan) and it has like...no back documentation. it has the manual, that front sheet which has the pic of the game....and that's it. sadface :(

w00t.
Was that second hand? I am sure the greatest hits didn't missed out on that.

Besides, I do buy second-hand discs as well and I ALWAYS check the quality of the disc by attempting to create an image.

Incredible...I can't wait for it to land it on my hands...hehe
But, too bad it not really my genre of gaming...

Maybe, I also include some of my Playstation Discs here...
We are going off-topic arn't we?

Check out the back I found on a CD cover site.
