I have problems with my Gamepad and ePSXe (1.6 and 1.52). I have the Saitek P880
pad with two analog sticks and one D-Pad. The Gamepad is fully functional, all buttons and axis respond, when I use the gamepad's software or any other PC-Game. When I use ePSXe, however, I cannot get the analog sticks to work. I can use the D-Pad, but although everything is well configured ( I also tried Xorcist's Gamepad configurator), I cannot use the analog sticks in-game. I tried it with FFIX, where you should be able to move with either the D-Pad or the left analog stick.
I think I remember that it once worked. I already tried to delete the configuration in the windows-registry. I have DirectX 9.0c. I hope somebody has an idea or any tip that could solve this situation. I know, I could play FFIX without the left analog stick, as the D-Pad works for all movement, too. But it should work and other games need both the D-Pad and the left analog stick.
