has anyone gotten this controller to do rumble effects in epsxe? I have been trying to make it work to no avail... Its a pretty decent pad for playing epsxe and mame.. Plus the rumble is pretty strong on pc games too... I just need to figure out how to make it rumble with epsxe...

I tried that exact same pad also and it did the same thing for me. No rumble at all. Even in the configure screen in control panel, the rumble was really wimpy and weak. I gave up and bought a Logitec Wingman Rumble Pad. That one works really really well, except for maze games. So my advice would be to give up on the Thrustmaster Pad and try another pad. Best of luck.

actually,

the rumble is ok for me. Its almost as strong as the psx rumble controllers. Maybe its just me. Anyways, I just wanted this controller because of the rumble feature, analog stick, and the d-pad is pretty good for playing cps2 games on mame... Maybe future versions of epsxe will fix the rumble pad problems. its hard to find a game pad with a good d-pad to play mame games.. analog just isn't good for fighting games. Or maybe its me again. hehe. Oh well, atleast there is rumble in my pc games...:)

i'm gonna go quite off topic here, hope you don't mind :emb:

well for fighting games (like Street Fighter stuff right?), nothing can replace a good arcade joystick.

i'm happy to have bought the last Interact PC Arcade Pro I have ever seen, and it simply ROCKS for the "versus" and SFA series on CPS2 (and all Street Fighter series before it), not to mention all the arcade games that are meant to be played with a joystick. You might want to look for one of these at eBay or something.

And I also have an Interact Propad 6 gamepad; the original one, not the new ergonomical one.
That particular gamepad has one of the best d-pads on PC controllers. So you might want to check out some of the current Interact gamepads too.

If you can find one, also consider the long-discontinued ThrustMaster Rage 3D and Fusion gamepads. In digital mode, their d-pad is a rather unique design; you move the indented center of the big half-sphere towards the direction (U D L R), instead of pressing down on the d-pad like in conventional gamepads. I find that extremely accurate and swift, more suitable for fighting games than the best of the normal d-pad designs.

And you are correct; analog stick is not good for digital control. That is why they STILL haven't done away the conventional d-pad on the DualShock (ok it's a little weird but still similar) and upcoming Gamecube controller.
(And that's also why my Rage 3D has that digital mode for the half-sphere pad)

Yes, I use direct X 8a, do you use the same direct X;
Another think: I have downloaded the New Drivers from thrusmaster, and make a special thrustmapper config for ePSXeCutor...

yes, I did set the gamepad to analog/digital in the epsxe gamepad options..... Update: the rumble now works... I think... It works with MvC so far... Only when you are hit with a super move though.. Is that how its suppose to rumble? Its pretty strong... I tested it with FF8 and no use.. It don't work!!! Same settings too!! Damn!! Have you guys gotten the rumble on this pad to work with FF8? Oh well, back to testing the other games I got and see if rumble works with them... It's cool that it works for MvC atleast.. :)
