I just purchased a Gravis Firestorm and force feed back dont seem to work I was first trialing it with DX7a and the drivers that came with the product.
epsxe seems to recognise it but I could hardly feel any feed back only now and again and it was very soft.
Now I have uupgraded to DX8a and the latest FireStorm drivers, the feedback is very strong but as soon as it starts to rumble it dont stop:(
Only way to stop is to shut down epsxe.

Has anyone got this controler working and can help me out?
It works well in windows but no under epsxe.
PS. what is constant and sign settings?

Disturbed, you hit the nail on the head. That is the correct name of the pad. I tried it, but I couldn't calibrate it or get the rumble to come in hardly. I would reccommend trying another rumble pad. Maybe that one just does not like ePSXe for some reason.

Wingman

:) :emb: :)
Well I took my "Thrustmaster" Firestorm back to the store and exchanged in for a Logitech Wingman rumble.
What a difference lots more features for the same price and works fantastic with epsxe!

I would recomend this controler to anyone wanting to experience force feed back.

Thanks for the info

heh, i feel like being a jerk today:
actually Guillemot's version is just called "Dual Analog gamepad", that's it, and I believe they never made a rumble version. BTW they're still selling that one at TM's website and is cheaper than TM's eqivalent.

on another note: Jugular, you might find the Logitech is two shoulder buttons short for emulating PSX Dual Shock, although it has two more face buttons. Also the sticks have no buttons. However for PC gaming, the throttle (usuall not on other gamepads) would prove to be quite useful.

thrustmaster/guillemot...it's the same pad...
I got rid of the rumble-one though, since (unlike I thought a first) it had way too much problems. I do (and already did before the rumble one) have the version without rumble though...that's a guillemot dual analog gamepad.....the rumble one had the thrustmaster logo.

(I just noticed I said the word 'rumble' too often :p)

Disturbed, you are right, Guillemont is European it is a French company. Also, in the future please refrain from calling people "jerk". It solves nothing and it makes people angry. That I will not tolerate:mad:.
Takwu, the two extra face buttons can be used as L2 and R2 or L! and R1 if you choose. That makes the Logitec rumble pad only one button short of the necessary amount of buttons for a PSX pad. To take care of this, I assigned select to "right shift". Other than that, the rumble pad functions exactally as a PSX pad.
