    "PS2 Controller for the PC Version Guide"
    ===================================================================
    SAAC 1.2 - San Andreas - PS2 Controller .ini files v1.02
    Joytokey - San Andreas - PS2 Controller ".cfg" file v1.01


    UPDATES:
    -June 29 2005- Minor SAAC .ini update - Changed vehicle alternate fire to L1, so whilst in the hydra you can aim with R1 and fire with L1. This helps compensate for the lack of a vehicle aim setting in SAAC.
    -June 28 2005 - SAAC .ini update - Corrected the analog up/down control for the planes and helicopters.
    -June 27 2005 - New Guide Addition: SAAC (San Andreas Advanced Control)
    -June 21 2005 - added the bike's L1 bunnyhop.
    -June 21 2005 - resolved the left analog stick problem...steering doesn't result in camera movement anymore!


    Both methods of emulating the PS2 controls are not 100%, so they have their positive and negative sides. Here's a little comparison between the two:
    Note: "+" stands for a positive addition & "-" stands for a negative addition.


    The SAAC Method
    + 99.5% effective!
    + Supports the d-pad gang controls, pos/neg replies towards peds, and radio station switching.
    + Supports force feedback (ps2 controller feature)
    + Setup is quick and easy.
    + No in game configuration needed whatsoever! (saves at least 5 mins)
    - "Start" opens the pause menu, but doesn't seem to close it.
    - Hydras targeting button configuration is missing, so it's not correct in the game
    - Some people claim to have camera issues at random
    note: All it's missing is a perfected version :catspider:
    recommended for: a quick way to slap on 99.5% of the ps2 controls


    The Joytokey Method

    + No SAAC camera glitch (if it still exists)
    + Supports up to four keys pressed per button!
    - No support for d-pad gang controls, pos/neg replies towards peds, and radio station switching
    - Setup takes longer
    - Force feedback is missing
    -96% effective due to the lack of d-pad functions.
    note: All it's missing is support for the d-pad, force feedback, and a simple user interface :wtf:
    recommended for: people who have the camera glitch with SAAC


    For those who are experiencing camera glitches with SAAC, skip ahead to the Joytokey method.


    BEFORE YOU USE THIS GUIDE:
    Make sure you have the right equipment:
    I'm using a "PSX TO USB" Adapter, which also supports the PS2 controller. Basically, you want something that converts the controller's input connection to USB.


    "The SAAC Method" (Recommended)

    Step 1,
    Grab a copy of SAAC v1.2
    Extract the program somewhere you would like to run it.

    Download my custom ".ini" configuration files by clicking here , and extract them into your SAAC program directory.


    Step 2, Run SAAC and select "USB Joystick" under device
    Then select my "San Andreas PS2 Controls (Wolfmight)" under Presents.
    Now run this software before running San Andreas each time and your controls should be just like the PS2 version.


    Note: I'm still working on perfecting my settings file, so if you find any improvements...give a reply or pm me.


    "The Joytokey Method"

    Step 1,
    Grab a copy of JoyToKey
    Extract the program somewhere you would like to run it.

    Download my custom ".cfg" by clicking here , and extract it into your Joytokey program directory.

    Step 2,
    Configure your controls for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as follows:

    1) Set your configuration to "Joypad"


    2) Open "Joypad Settings" and set "Invert right axis" to "On". Leave the rest of them set to "Off"



    3) Now, Goto "Redefine Controls" and then open "Foot Controls". Use the "Backspace" key to clear the first entry, then hit your down key and repeat the following for every entry. Once you've got the entire list cleared, enter the following controls from the image below exactly the way it shows them to you.

    Here's a printer friendly copy of the image to help speed things up:


    4) Now goto "Vehicle Controls". Like I mentioned above, use the "Backspace" key to clear each and every entry, then copy the settings from the image below exactly:

    Here's the printer friendly copy to help speed things up:


    Step 3,
    Open up Joytokey and highlight "San Andreas"
    Make sure your ps2 controller is hooked up and the red analog light is visible.
    Make sure Joytokey is open before playing San Andreas each time, or the PS2 controls will be missing



    *TIP: If you are getting system beeps, you may try the following to turn them off:
    # Start>Run type: Regedit.
    # Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
    # On the left hand side of the screen find Beep on the list.
    # Right click on it and select Modify
    # Change the value equal to no

    -Credit goes to "Oshi" for this tip. Closing trainers may help solve a beeping issue as well.

    Maybe i should write a guide on how to post in threads

    BTW Why would anyone want to use a PS2 controller, the mouse allows for easy headshots.

    Ive also actually gone to the register and changed my PS2 USB controller to Logitech so the games I play think i have a logetech controller might solve those D pad issues

    Logitec eh? Does it look and feel just like the PS2 one?

    Looks like a good guide and I shall run it for my ps controller as soon as I have a chance.
    I also think this is worthy of its own post in case others have questions about the guide itself...

    I discovered this new software called SAAC and it's great! Just hosted my custom configuration file that automatically configures your controls to the default PS2 ones.
