Right now I'm playing Tales of Destiny II, and I'm on disc 3, and there's an attack that i can't get to work... I believe it's also the attack I have to use in order to beat the last boss. You have to press circle + cross + square simultaneously.

This happens to me in ePSXe and pSX, so I know it isn't a pSX problem but I don't know where else to post this and I am using pSX to play this game.

In a lot of RPGs for for the playstation you have to hold down a button, often circle, to run. This is one thing I've noticed playing emulators on my laptop. When I hold down circle to run, the game doesn't register when I wasnt to run diagnoally up-left or down left. I can go directly down-left or up-left if I'm not holding the circle button down though. Those are the only onces I've noticed.

I suspect that for some reason, there are button combinations of up to three or more keys that just cannot be recognized and I don't know why. They can be recognized individually... so... I don't know what the problem is.

I suspect that Square + Cross + Circle is one of the key cominations I can't get the game to understand...

Is there are solution to this problem? Has anyone seen it before?

If not I just wasted a lot of time playing this game I won't be able to beat.

I suspected that, but that doesn't explain how... I can press circle, up, and right (for example) to run in the up right directions. That's three keys. It's only specific keys.

Which just gave me a genius idea. I will play with the configuartions of keys to playstation buttons and find one that works.

Wish me luck.

works uhnnnn :)

It's weird. I know for sure it applies to specific arrow keys but not all arrow keys and the x button too. But I got it to work by playing with the configurations. If I make circle become spacebar instead of x, it will work.

Speaking of this anyway... I'd like to get a USB controller of any kind that can be configured to work with pSX.

The only usb controller I've heard of is the Windows Xbox 360 controller. Would it be possible to config that controller for an emulator?
