recommend me a good 3rd party, wired Turbo ps2 controller

by d123456 Sat Aug 09, 2014 6:25 am

I need turbo/autofire.
I am already on the lookout for Hori and Logitech.
But perhaps someone can recommend me something else that has better availability and is still okayish.
Has to wired and I'm buying it for some games that really need turbo/autofire.
I really need the dual analog as well, for some games, so ps1 digital pads are not really an option. ps1 analog pads are an option though.

Instead of a controller, get this or this instead. It's an adapter that comes between your controller of choice and the console and it allows you to set autofire to any button and create macros. So you can use whatever controller you like with it.

I have the one that's shown in Amazon's listing, it works great. But either the picture or the description is wrong there, it absolutely doesn't work as a PS2->PC adapter.

Mayflash PS2 Controller Programmable Converter BLOD

by d123456 Wed Aug 20, 2014 2:27 pm

Got the Mayflash PS2 Controller Programmable Converter
This one
http://www.mayflash.com/Products/PLAYST ... S2047.html
When I connect it to my PS2, the adapter just gives me blinking lights of death
What's the deal? Anybody seen this?
Also my controller connected through Mayflash PS2 Controller Programmable Converter does not work. Using stock ps2 and stock controller joypad.
Any advice? Thanks

Can't be certain since it's not the one I have, but could it be trying to record a macro? Can you deactivate it?

Or it's just defective, that's always a possibility. :?

It started working a few days later. Do these devices need to acclimatize, hahaha
Haven't used it that much, but when I need it it will be used. The rapid fire rate might prove useful as well.
