No rumble in ePSXe. >:(
« on: May 05, 2017, 01:10:20 am »
I have an old Radio Shack PSX TO USB adapter with a DualShock controller attached.

The buttons work, but I just realized the vibration doesn't work when playing Lunar and Gran Turismo.

I tried different settings like "Burutter" and "DX Joy1", nothing.

I searched on Google, and all I can find are old threads on other boards pointing to special drivers, but the links to the special drivers are all broken.

I've been able to get this to work before on previous computers I used, so I know it is possible.

How do I get this to work?!?

If my memory is correct, I think this is the solution I used many years ago:

http://ngemu.com/threads/radioshack-converter-ps2-controller.58187/#post-876779

Unfortunately, the link to that driver is dead.

Even more frustrating is that I scoured Google for that driver (BTP-C036.zip, for Betop BTP-036 gamepad) and all I got was:

1.) Nothing
2.) Phony downloads to viruses and malware.

Unfortunately, I don't have this file in any of my backup hard drives, either!

Does anyone know where to get this driver, or if there is an alternative driver that solves this issue?

I found a few different drivers on their website, have you tried these?

http://www.betop-cn.com/service/self/drive/list_4.html

EDIT: third one in the list (北通神鹰_BTP-C036_PC驱动(可测试震动)) supports vibration, according to Google Translate.

Thanks for the reply Spinner 8, but I already tried downloading from that site. McAfee says the files are infected.

I am also considering buying a new PSX to USB adapter made from a different company. Does anyone know of any adapters that are fully compatible with ePSXe (analog, vibration, and all that)?

I really like my Barracuda PS1 controller with the auto-fire and programmable buttons (which I have used for years), and don't want to settle for a PC gamepad without those functions.
