Now once my PS2 died after I had bought a new computer I decided to make the jump from playing on the PS2 to playing on the PC.. however I still wanted to play with a controller. Well after several usb pretend PS2 controllers I finally made this purchase and i have not had one regret.
I'm running vista and it works without a flaw, and I finally have a D-pad and analog sticks that won't let me down. If you're a fellow Final Fantasy XI player and looking to use a controller on your PC this tool + PS2 controller is the way to go!
Everyone, please remember that if the device isn't working, the issue can ONLY be a driver in this case (unless the product is defective, which is unlikely due to its simplicity.)
I was ready to give up on this thing myself because it wasn't working with my laptop, but with some diligence I found the above driver. There are probably others out there as well. Just give it a try before bashing a product that works perfectly.
My main gripe is the cheap/tacky look of the product overall. But hey, I only paid $4 for the thing. Whether or not the adapter will last remains to be seen.
Many people don't know that the DualShock PS2 buttons are pressure sensitive, which means they sense how hard they are being pressed. This adapter converts that range into a binary "yes/no" press to work better with computers. Unfortunately, it sets the threshold for this very high, probably at the maximum pressure the button reads. This means that if you don't fully depress the button, it doesn't trigger at all, and in order to trigger the button you have to do more than just press it, you have to SMASH it. This takes time, and the effect is to introduce enough latency in the button presses to make games noticeably more difficult to control. Trying to play a Mario game is like playing to play it drunk.
Clearly this isn't bothering a lot of people, but if this sounds like it might bother you, I'd save your cash.
(Looking at the USB events, it appears to be the hardware itself emitting button events only for hard presses; a software fix on the computer does not appear to be possible. Switching the digital/analog mode does not help.)
Actually, let me rephrase - depending on which random device you receive in the mail, it may or may not work. Mine was not the one pictured, and definitely didn't work. As you can see from other reviews, some people have gotten different ones that do work.
Just skip over this, and buy the Super Joy Box Pro 5.
