Using PS2 controllers on the PC



Hi, i am able to use PS2 controllers when i play pro evo 4 on my PC as i have an adaptor from play.com that lets me do this.
i was wondering if people who have the game know if i can do the same with rugby 2005? i am hoping you will be able to configure it so the controls will be just the same as if you are playing a PS2 version of the game.
any imput on this will be much appreciated!


i've just ordered one off play.com, should arrive tomorrow. My answer to your question is I sure bloody hope so!


Haha, the adaptor works perfectly well with pro evo 4, but that might be because the PC version of that game is carbon copy of the ps2 game, for example, it still says things like, press 'X' to continue as if it was still a ps2 game!
oh well we will have to just wait and see!


hursty can u list the games you know the adaptor is compatible with. If it works for the likes of madden, nba live, fifa etc then i'm sure it'll work for all ea sports games.


I own a Superbox 3 pro (PS2->USB adaptator), and it works like a charm with pro evo4, but that's because you can configure the controls. With Rugby 2005, the buttons are not placed correctly, and there's no way to change them. However, if your controller or adaptator is in this list, it will work fine :

sorry, i can only tell you i know it works for pro evo, havent played the others on pc. this is what it says about it on play.com:

We've worked closely with Joytech to develop this exclusive USB Dual convertor that will allow you to play your PC games using the Sony PlayStation2 game pad!

The software driver has been written to work with more PC games than any other similar convertors.

Now you can play your favourite PC games with one of the world's best controllers! Best of all you can now play multi-player games through the same convertor!

Very nice. I feel satisfied with my PS2. Each component will allow the use of a hand at 2 PS2 or Xbox controller, allowing gamers the opportunity countervailing right on your computer. Once connected, if the operating system on the machine is Windows XP or Windows Me, the PC will automatically recognize the drive without installation, however, when playing, 2 pcs This will not be hands start to shake with the manipulation of the operator as in the PS2 "genuine". Therefore, if you want the device to maximize its features, players will have to proceed with the installation of switch ports driver disk into the machine.!
