I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask about this in. If it is, please move it appropriately.

I have a converter for my PS2 controller to USB. I only use it for Grand Theft Auto (Vice City), really. My problem is, however, that key binding seems to be an issue. In the controller setup within the game, the analog sticks are not detected and I therefore cannot define their actions (left, right, etc). Currently, the right stick's actions are being inverted somehow - vertically controls horizontally, and visa-versa with horizontally. I also cannot figure out how to define such actions as accelerate and fire. If anybody knows how to fix this or has experience witha DualShock 2 on a PC game, I'd appreciate your help!

Thanks in advance. :) Vaugh

Have you tried changing the invert setting for the mouse? I don't know whether it would affect the hoystick, but if you're using it to look around (ie what the mouse does normally) then it may apply the settings to it.

Defining the normal controls should be easy enough, do it like you would for the keyboard but press a pad button instead of a key.

And also, the dumb question, have you actually set it to use the joypad instead of mouse + keyboard? I'm looking at SA, not VC, but as I remember it they're more or less the same in terms of gameplay options. And if you do have it in joypad mode, you can turn inversion on and off so that would fix your problem.

I'll try what you suggested about the mouse settings, thanks. The problem is mainly in inputting the settings from the pad. They don't seem to register, yet some of them automatically apply themselves - i.e. left and right on the left analog to turn. In Vice it actually just lists the applied keys next to each action. Maybe I'll just upgrade to San Andreas so this will all become easier. Maybe.

Well it's a different game so it's hardly an upgrade lol. You could just use the keyboard and mouse, that's the point of having the PC version anyway. Other than not needing a console to play it and improved graphics, of course.

I use multi theft auto. ;)

I suppose SA is just a more recent version, but I consider it an update. :)

Vice City is timeless, though.
