Analog sticks and PS1 on CS

Post by Percoseth » Mon Apr 15, 2019 1:52 pm

Both of my sticks are recognized by Emulation Station just fine. Is there something I need to change in retroarch for them to work with ps1 games?

It turns out I had my joysticks wired wrong. I've fixed that, but still can't get them to work.

There are very few dualshock supported ones. The joystick doesn't act as the dpad unless the specific app allows that.

If you run

Code: Select all

jstest /dev/input/js0
from the command line, and move the joystick you should see the values stream up the screen/terminal :)

Providing that works, there is no hardware problem and it's down to you/someone else to work out how to use it in software (if it's even supported at all)

Thanks, you're right. It turns out the game I was testing with didn't support analog sticks.
