As a Gran Turismo 2 addict I really missed out the dual analog support in GT2. I want to have analog steering and analog gassing and braking. The exact reasons why this wasn't possible on the Dreamcast is answered the Bleemcast! FAQ:
But... when you put the switch on the total control plus to the steering wheel and connect just a dual shock controller, both sticks are working analog!!! You don't have to adjust anything, but if you will you can even adjust "the steeringwheel" sentivity etc. in the analog settings screen of GT2. I'm still very thrilled about this, but I think any GT2 fan will be to.Is it possible to use analog accelerating and braking?
No, because the Dreamcast controller has only 1 analog stick as the Playstation Dual Shock controllers has 2. The only possibility was using the Dreamcast left and right trigger to act as the second analog stick only supporting up and down, but Bleem! decided to program those triggers as L1 and R1 wich are on the Playstation controller digital. Also a Playstion to Dreamcast controller (like the total control) won't work, because those adapters don't support the second analog stick of the Playstation controller. That's also logical because no other game on the Dreamcast supports 2 analog sticks. The only way left to be able to use analog accelerating and braking with Bleemcast! is the use of Bleempods. Wich are the only Playstation controller to Dreamcast controller adapters that's support both analog sticks. Unfortantly the Bleempods have never been produced, expect for a few prototypes.
I don't know how it can work, maybe the total control mixes the analog left and right triggers with the up and down of stick. But fact is that the signal of the second analog stick is send to Dreamcast (many people including Rand Linden said that such adapaters didn't support the second stick in ANY way). So maybe it's possible to adjust the total control to a Bleem!pod prototype using both sticks with just the normal settings.
