Alright, so, I've downloaded the epsxe, have all the recommended plugins and all that jazz, and the games I want to play all do so correctly with no problems whatsoever...EXCEPT...on every game I play, when I attempt to use the keys I've assigned to the 'down' and 'left' commands for the controller, they dont work together at the same time and yet 'down' and 'right' work just fine and so does any other command combination if the games call for it. I know this isn't just my keyboard since I've played dozens of flash games and stuff online and those two commands work together as they should without variation. I have this problem on Midievil, Midievil II, Breath of Fire III, Breath of Fire IV, and (most frustratingly) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Those are all the games I have too. I have absolutely NO IDEA why this is happening, I even tried shifting the keys for the commands ALL around the keyboard, but all that changes is that 'down' and 'left' works with certain combinations but suddenly 'down' and 'right' DOESN'T work. I know this is really long; I'm trying to wrap it up. Anyway, if you've had this problem and fixed it, let me know.

If you DO have advice for me please e-mail it too me at [email protected]. I would like step-by-step instructions and explanations as detailed as possible, this thing is REALLY bugging me.

2 things:

1.) Buy a USB keyboard and use it.

2.) This is a forum. Why should people email you the answer? Also, openly posting your email address isn't a wise thing to do as mentioned above.

Ok, well, first off DUH it's not wise to openly display your email! It is only a random account I created for the sole purpose of taking in any and all spam email and whatnot, it's not my REAL email, so thanks for the lesson on how to waste breath, but I don't think I want to surpass the master, thanks...
I just don't feel like coming back to this site every day and looking through reply upon reply for new posts

Second, it doesn't take gargantuan wads of grey matter to figure out I'm looking for help with my SOFTWARE, I already established my KEYBOARD (Otherwise known as "hardware", children) functions correctly on anything else. Also something that should have appeared as common sense is the fact that if I was asking for help with software, don't you think buying other crap that might or might NOT fix the problem is ALREADY out of the question? Some people aren't born with silver spoons shoved so far up the exit point of their digestive system that it ACTUALLY came back up and out of their mouth...and I ask you please email me your answers if you would be so kind, I know this is a forum, but somehow I find email much more efficient.

Geez, this wasnt supposed to be an ESSAY...

Anyway, if anyone has anything USEFUL to say, I'd like to hear it, please. Otherwise, OH PLEASE POST YOUR SMART REMARKS! WE ALL LOVE TO SEE YOU PROVE JUST HOW LIKE A GOD YOU ARE IN YOUR WITTINESS! PWN US LIKE TEH NUBS WE R!

P.S. I just got done watching like 12 episodes of [SCRUBS] and Perry is my favorite character so if any of that seemed really rude and I sounded like a prick, thats just the [SCRUBS] talking, idk...

Problem #2 solved.

Now you just need to buy a USB keyboard. And yes, I'm saying that you do indeed have a hardware problem. Your problem has absolutely nothing to do with ePSXe.

Ok well, please explain to me why those button combinations work with every other program I've used EXCEPT epsxe. If I had a hardware problem I'm sure the same symptoms would be apparent in everything else and it still doesnt explain how different combinations of the button settings only shift the problem to a different set. And stop suggesting the same thing I've already dismissed as out of the question. BUYING A USB KEYBOARD IS NOT WITHIN MY POWER and it's not like the text from the last time you told me to do that has just gotten up and walked off the forum page, if that's all the advice you have for me, thank you for your time, but you're not helping, sorry...

Also, I'm using a laptop and, as we all know, they have no separate numpad so will changing the directional buttons to the keys corresponding to the numpad buttons still work? If it does then I guess I don't have the setting allowing button combos on, can someone tell me how to do that?

I'll see if there's a spare usb keyboard somewhere in the house, though. I WOULD like one..

Keyboard input is not working at all

I was wondering if anyone knew any reasons why epsxe would suddenly stop responding to keyboard input. Every time I load a game into the emulator, it will not respond to any input except the escape key. However, I can still set keys in the gamepad config section, and have even tried setting it to different pads (Config>Game Pad>Port #>Pad #). I have checked if it is a hardware fault and it isn't. Does anyone know why this may be? Thanks in advance.
