Just the obvious question: I want to get Dance Dance Revolution and the dance pad accessory and hook it up through a PSX to USB converter. Has anyone tried this? No, wait, that's a stupid question.

Has anyone made it work? I've been looking around this and other emulation sites for the last few days and haven't found any comment one way or the other.

As to getting the dancing pad thing to work... its doubtful..

BUT, you can get a psx joypad usb adapter.

I use the PSJoy which is a PSX->USB joypad aapter that allows you to use a dualshock analog psx joypad on your pc.

See http://www.madeiragames.com/ for info on buying one.

Its great running all my psx games on the pc with ePSXe and using my PSX joypad.

I just received a DDR pad I got off of eBay. It has a connector that goes to the printer port of a PC and an optional convertor to turn that into a PSX connector. I had trouble finding software to get the pad to work in an emulator. I finally found DirectPad Pro, and the pad works like a regular controller through that. However, there's still one major problem. The dance pad's arrows are recognized as a regular joystick axis, and on a joystick's axis, only one direction can be pressed at once. It's impossible to press both left and right arrows at the same time for the double steps in some songs. I don't know how to get around it right now, and development of DirectPad Pro seems to have ended abruptly (the web site no longer works). So, if you just want one pad, you can get one off of eBay or at eforcecity.com (they're on eBay as eForceTrading) without getting the USB convertor. If you want another one, then I suppose you will have to get a USB convertor, but you'll probably end up with the same problem that I'm experiencing. Has anyone tried a dance pad on a real Playstation and is able to press left and right or up and down at once?

Well..., I gave the answer to this in another thread/topic/post in this same forum and it is located here (and, yes, the opossite move works on psx also)

I get dance mat yesterday, and this really roxx!!! (scorchmon - I couldn't think that you doesn't find the solution before, its so easy and logical to find !! xD) (its a joke, its a joke... ;))

Ked that wasn't a stupid questions, it was a very good question and you can make for yourself a psx->pc adaptor throught parallel port that can make any psx pad work in your pc, even with vibration !! (emulating psx vibration as PC Force Feedback) so PC games with Force Feedback can make your psx pad vibrate!!, and of course it works with psx dancing mats,another psx pad-like stuff and some psx steering wheels (and some PS2 ones too, like dual shock 2 pad ) I don't have to say that I've made one for myself, here are the links for schematics and the way to make it (its hosted in www.emulatronia.com , one of the best emu sites)
