i recently got a PSX/N64 joint adaptoid-

the label on it says

'Smart Joypad' and it was manufactured by Exceed.

the catch is- this is the non-USB version of it.
this adaptoid plugs into the 'game' port on my sound card.

provided i find and install all the drivers for it, will it still work with ePSXe?

and if anyone knows where i can get the drivers for it, i would gladly apreciate your help. google-ing it isnt helping much, as im getting a bunch of japanese sites that are selling them.

thanks

Try to get the correct drivers for this or for a device with a similar chipset (you may have to open the casing to determine the chipset). If this proves impossible...

try adding it using the Sound, Video, and Game Controllers/Joysticks control panel in windows, your button settings probably won't make a huge difference, but the Axis HAT and throttle options may. If ePSXe only detects the number of buttons you set it to in the joystick config, you will need to find a real driver for this or try out a gameport to USB adapter which *might* auto-detect the driver needed, but you may have to unplug from the USB if you want to swap controller types, then plug it back in for it to detect again. You might have to get the drivers from a site not available in english also...

ive got 6 usb ports built into my pc (i.e. im not using a hub)- so finding an open one shouldnt be a problem. as for a real driver, im searching driverguide.com and googleing it (divide and conquer!!)

as for configuring it under windows, none of the options (even 'Custom'), under Game Controllers (on Control Panel), gave me enough buttons to assign to the PSX controller.

so it looks like im gonna have to find a driver for it.
and as a last resort, gameport-to-USB converter.
