I have a mas super pro stick that works fine on the ps2. Now I just recently bought a firebird ps2 > ps3 Converter and my stick doesnt work on the pc. I’m using mame and i enabled joystick options and the computer recognizes the digital joystick axises. My joystick doesnt work at all on the pc but when i use a ps2 controller on the pc it works fine. Please help I just payed 15 bucks for this adapter and I really want to use my joystick on the pc.
Buy the Pelican PS2 --> PS3 converter and try that on your PC.
I would prefer to not buy another converter as i cant return the one i currently have.
Why can’t you return it? Don’t be cheap, just get the Pelican converter.
Download a program called joy2key. Map the buttons to keys and see if that helps.
Well, there’s your problem.
I have the same problem with the Konami US version beatmania controller on a pelican adapter, so, there’s a chance getting ANOTHER adapter won’t fix the problem.
I’d try to find a pad you CAN use on the adapter and remove the crap MAS PCB/chip and use that instead.
Beatmania controller works with the pelican, you just have to use Joy 2 Key.
I sold him the MAS, and I’ve had no problems using it with the Radioshack converters/pelican converters.
MAS PCBs are fine. It’s probably the converter. What the hell is a Firebird converter?
Thread Solved, pay 15 bucks, and it works, sucks yes? but better than losing your investment completely.
An older release of the Firefox converter.
sell that on ebay
Do MAS super pro sticks built for PS2s not work well online? Or is this an isolated phenomena based on his converter? I was thinking of getting a MAS one day.
