I have tried everything but doing bin/cue, and don't feel that I should have to to have it do what I paid for... same with joy2key. They're options, I just don't want to use those 2. I don't have the sidewinder or exterminator anymore, was speaking of older versions. The other two I do have, I can select what buttons do what and all, even the gravis has it's own artwork in the gui...just doesn't register in game.
I've already erased it...I'll try again on the real ver but I kinda gave up on it years ago, even sold off most the remaining CDs I had and dumped a few of the cdrs too (DracX, Macross, etc.) I just holdout hoping one day it will work right for once and I can play Ys Book 1+2 and Gate of Thunder 4in1 CDs again.
