Hi guys,
just getting back into the old PSX games after getting hold of a copy of ePSXe, but all is not rosy here; sad to say.

I bought the Play.com PSX to USB converter, and a PS2 joypad (original Sony one). The thing seems to work in the config panel that came with the drivers but the analogue sticks are not recognised at all when using ePSXe (GT2 has the ability to display the state of the analogue controls and these are shown as being disabled). So, my question is this: is there any kind of pluggin to help solve my problems, or am I looking at buying a new converter? If I have to buy a new converter what do you guys recommend? (I don't want to get rid of this converter as it works really well in GTA:SA for the PC).

If that doesn't work, use another emulator with PAD plugin support. ePSXe only uses its default pad config. F5 may also not toggle the pad setting itself, so you might need to press the ANALOG button in the middle os the PS2 controller afterward as well. Make sure the config is set to Digital/Analog (F5) for Pad 1

Got the same pad adapter here ;)

First off, when you install the drivers for that adapter windows always thinks you've installed 2 new gamepads, even when you've only got 1 (or none!) plugged into the adapter. In my case, that meant I couldn't configure the pad in epsxe, due to a load of random crap being sent from the driver for the missing pad 2. The simplest way to fix that was to plug in a second ps2 controller, then the configuration worked fine. Alternatively you can disable the driver for the missing second pad in control panel.

Yes, I was wondering about that myself but just thought it was down to the fact the PS joypads are not true USB devices so the adapter simply tells Windows that their are two pads connected, regardless of how many are actually plugged in.

Thanks for all the help guys, I'll give these things a try and get back to you with the results.
