I have the exact same controller... Works perfect for me in epsxe and all of my other emus.. Are you using another gamepad? Make sure they aren't interferring with each other.. REinstall directx... It seems the thrustmaster installation program has problems installing some generic Microsoft drivers from the win98se cd.. After installing the gamepad, reinstall directx.. Use the directx uninstallers.. Is the thrustmaster rumbling for you? Mines wouldn't until I reinstalled directx.. Now it rumbles and works fine.. The thrustmaster 3 taskbar utility has to always be on or the controller won't work properly..
