Using a PS2 Controller on the Dreamcast

Post by wasto » Thu Feb 13, 2003 11:18 am

hi everybody!
i just bought me a ps2 --> dc adapter. and it seemed to work fine.
but wen i tried my nesterdc cd. it didn't recoginise this controller.
so i tried and older cd i had made some time before. and it worked..

the older version (5.0 or something like that) worked. and the new one (7.1) didn't.
if i understand this right it should be possible to use this controller with the new version..
but how?

The PS2 Dpad it horriable tho because it leaves blisters all over your thumb. Other than that its great.

this converter i orderd at http://www.wolfsoft.de.

it works perfectly in normal dc-games. the only thing is, that the ps2 pas hasn't analog trigger buttons (l+r).

this adapter is calles dragoncast super converter.. (perhaps this helps)
