Based on recomendation of someone from this forum I bought Soyo KikuJoy USB - > PSX adapter which supports Vibration.

It says so on the box, and when booting into Win2K and using InterAct PSX Controller it wibrates 2-3 times (these controllers have much stronger vibration motors than Sony PS Controllers)

So I know that this combination works in Win2K. KikuJoy doesn't need any drivers, they are automatically loaded. I am using it perfectly with ePSXe v1.40 with my ATI 32MB card.

Everything work fine with PS or InterAct controllers - except the vibration.

I tried both DirectX and Burutter, as well as constant and sine options for motors. - nothing gives any vibration.

Gamepad is set up as Digital/Analog, because if I only set is as Digital then I do games do not let me change vibration options.

I noticed that if I am in the game, and I press recessed Analog button that both Sony and InterAct controllers vibrate for a second - probably as a confirmation of mode switching (Sony very faintly, InterAct much stronger).

I tried the following controllers :

2 different original PSX DualShock controllers (gray & black)

1 PS One white DualShock controller (for which KikuJoy box says that it is completelly different of the rest PSX & PS2 DualShock controllers)

1 PS2 DualShock 2 Controllers (for which somebody posted that it is not as good to use as PSX DualShock - I didn't see difference)

2 different InterAct vibrating controllers (I forgot their names)

This should be the best conbination to use with Emulator. I am convinced that ePSXe doesn't support something properly, since those InteAct controllers vibrate very strong 2-3 times when Win2K boots up (and is probably checking the KikyJoy adapter)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks in advance.

Dear Sxamiga:

Thank you for the information. I used to install all the drivers, but after having problems with some of them, I was glad to see that Win2K has most of them already.

But like you said it doesn't support vibrate feature. Those human interface drivers fooled me too. I saw that all the buttons work and assumed vibration will to.

After installing Kiky-Joy drivers all is well ! :p

Now ePSXe vibrates, like it should.

As an information I moved both sliders in Kiky-Joy force-feedback setup to the left (to shorten the time it vabrates). Then I setup ePSXe like this:

Vibration - Direct X
Large Motor - none
Small Motor - sine

Do not set any of them to constant because it will vibrate too long.

I tried all combinations and this is the only one that works good for me. Only small motor, and Kiky-Joy Windows drivers all the way to the left - that way it shortens the vibration time and it feels like it should.

So now I am happy. :emb:

I do not want to install any PC games so I can't check it, but ePSXe works fine now.

Thanks for all your help.

You are right. There is only one .exe file on the CD, but it contains driver files inside. They get decompressed and installed when you start it.

It worked for me. Try it. Good luck.
