ok, its plugged.

But It won't detect the psx pad that is connected thru LPT 1 (printer port), but it refers to my Soundcard's Gameport.

Anyone?

I use the sapnish driver from Aldos' Tools. It also detects the gamepad as if it was plugged throught the Gameport, but otherwise works perfectly. Maybe you can give this version a shot.

um... not working, still refers to the Gameport.

my SC is Aureal Vortex SQD 2 - damn! Do I have to switch back to Win98SE?

PS: I heard that Win2K SP2 have this 'compatibility mode' for win98 only softwares/games. Where can I find this feature? I would like to try it with Zeus and Soul Reaver

Create a shortcut to the program you want to run. You can set the compatibility mode in the shortcut's properties.

You must have installed the compatiblity update before this tab becomes available though. Surprisingly it actually works (well in my case thus far:D)

If you have W2kSP2 installed do as follows (from MS support site):

How to Enable Compatibility Mode Properties
The Compatibility-mode technology is not exposed by default. To enable an interface so that you can use this technology for your programs after you apply SP2:
Log on as Administrator.


Click Start, and then click Run.


In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK, where %SystemRoot% is the drive and folder in which Windows 2000 is installed:


regsvr32 %systemroot%\apppatch\slayerui.dll
How to Use Compatibility Mode Properties
Administrators can use a program shortcut to set the compatibility mode for a target program. This requires that the Compatibility-mode properties be correctly installed and registered on the computer by using the previous steps. To enable Compatibility mode by using a program shortcut:
Log on as Administrator.


Right-click the shortcut, and then click Properties.


Click the Compatibility tab. This tab appears only if the Compatibility-mode interface has been properly enabled on the computer.


Click to select the Run in Compatibility Mode check box to enable Compatibility-mode support for the program.


Click either Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 compatibility mode in the drop-down box.


Click OK to save the changes.


Double-click the shortcut to run the program.

NOTE: Be careful if you use Compatibility mode to bypass version warnings in Setup or installation programs. Some programs are designed for a specific operating system and intentionally prohibit use on future versions. These are most often system-level programs that run at a very low level and have the potential to cause serious problems if installed.


How to Disable Compatibility Mode
Because you enable Compatibility mode independent of the Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 installation process, uninstalling Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 does not remove Compatibility mode. To uninstall Compatibility mode:
Log on as Administrator.


Click Start, and then click Run.


In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK, where %SystemRoot% is the drive and folder in which Windows 2000 is installed:


regsvr32 /u %systemroot%\apppatch\slayerui.dll



If you need even more options to mess around with you'll have to install the Application Compatibility Toolkit which can be found at the MS site as well. Hope this helps :)

PS: if the Gameport is not available anymore under W2K but used to be under W98, it's usually shitty soundcard drivers missing proper implementation of that particular feature. Unless you can get it to work with older drivers / through LPT1 there's hardly a way around it, sadly.
