Hi!
As long as I just can't get in mind where these squares, triangles and circles on my Wingman gamepad are located (I make only 71% at the FF9 duell -after 30 minutes trying :eyes: ), I decided to get a real Sony Dualshock controller.
So far, so good - can anyone tell me if the "PSC+N64 USB Converter" is able to let the controller rumble?
Oh, and by the way, is there a german seller somewhere available, or do I still have to import this? (Which isn't that much of a problem)

My best regards,

Carsten

I haven't heard of a PSX+N64 converter that has rumble, but I know that the second product on this page provides rumble though its just for PSX.

I saw that one, but would prefer to have an USB-converter. For now, my printerport ist deactivated to have at least one more interrupt free.

Well I'm pretty sure I saw a USB adapter that had rumble, but I don't remember where. If I come across it I'll let you know and if you come across please let me know because I will probably buy one soon.

Yep, that was the one I thought of. Thanx indeed.
Now the only thing is missing, which one will rumble through USB?:confused:

Wait a second,
does "supports dual shock" mean it will rumble? I thought it just meant that it supports the analog features of the dual shock, but not the rumble.
Someone please clarify for me.:confused:

It looks like cybershop is misleading the customer because I purchased the PSX+N64 adapter ( from another online store ) while it is agreat adapter It does NOT support the rumble function.
I purchased the PSC controller to Dreamcast adapter that does support the rumble function BUT for it to do that you have to connect a separate voltage adaptor to it.

I hope this helps

> does "supports dual shock" mean it will rumble?
Thats the point why I started this thread! I'm a careful reader when someone wants to sell me something;)

Well, the "PS-USB-Converter" is stated to rumble, found that on one website. I ordered it yesterday, and will post here if it works and rumbles or does anything else interesting...

If it say that it supports "dual shock" then, by all means, it SHOULD rumble (I capatilized should not to shout, but to show my opinion of manufacturers that say this, but the adapter doesen't rumble) because "dual shock" is just Sony's fancy name for the rumble feature. So if it says that it supports "dual shock" then it is saying that your controller should rumble when plugged in to the adapter. If it says this and your controller still does not rumble, then the company that advertised it as doing so is guilty of false advertising and you've been ripped off. My Pelican Accessories USB to PSX cable supports everything but the rumble feature, but no where on the box or in the instructions does it say that it does support "dual shock". So Pelican Accessories was being fair. Hope this helps clear up what "dual shock supported" means. Sorry for being so long winded.:emb:
sincerely,

Thank you for that explanation, sx/amiga.

The description from PSXemu.com of the adapter shown above (in the pic in Lithium007's post) states that "The Smart Joypad is compatible with the famous Dual Shock pad and its analog features." So I guess this is false advertising.

Also the "PS-PC USB converter in the PSXemu.com shop says the same thing. I think that's the one that Spektakulum ordered. Good luck with that, Spektakulum. I'm interested to hear your findings when you get it.

Right! I ordered it in germany (29 DM for german readers) - they stated on their website it supports the rumble feature. Well, I'll keep you informed!:cool:

The converter I bought sucks! Didn't worked with me - I 'll return it the next days. There is no rumble at all, and I'm pretty sure that it isn't even supposed to rumble!

I bought a Thrustmaster Firestorm gamepad recently -it works fine, and is not so small as the original dualshock controller.

See also my posting "Final Fantasy 9 -When should it rumble?"

Thanks for that report, Spektakulum.
I think I may just buy one anyway with my next paycheck. I'm tired of my PC controler which has a crappy D-pad. I guess I'll just go with the cheapest PS-PC adapter I can find since there doesn't seem to be any difference in them.

Adair, if you have a chance take a look at that Thrustmaster Firestorm first -it's pretty near to the PSX-controller, and has enough buttons, especially the four at the back! The D-Pad works fine (although it felt cheap at the first touch, but hell, even diagonal jumps with my Atari800XL emulator work fine!)
For Start and Select, there are 2 additional buttons underneath the controller.

Only bad thing, you can't use the D-Pad and the analogue sticks together, though swichting between them is always possible with a button on the top.

Many regards,
Spektakulum

Oh, and never never install this driver they got on the CD! It makes the best crashes ever seen on a PC. Instead, download the latest driver from http://www.thrustmaster.com

EDITED:

You CAN use both the D-pad and the sticks together, but have to map the D-pad, for its unfortunately not recognized by epsxe in the anlogue modus.
