Twin Ps2 USB Adapter Problem with PS1 games
Hi, i have this adapter with 2 original ps2 controllers:
It works fine, all buttons in all emulators, including moonlight playing with another 2 ps3 controllers. Using 4.1 recalbox.
But I have a problem playing PS1 games, when using this adapter, no command input is detected, many games won´t even pass by the start screen. (I´ve tried games like Marvel vs Capcom, Bloody Roar I -II)
I can even use hotkey + B to enter retroarch menu and everything is working fine.
Can someone help me please?

@acris Thx Acris. I´ve tried using /recalbox/scripts/recalbox-support.sh
and via manager, but both give a message like "no space left". I have only 40% of the SD card filled. I think that support scrip have a bug, I already talked to Substring in the 4.1 bugs, but no solution yet.
Back into the controllers problem, i´ve realized even my ps3 controllers inputs won´t work anymore on those games (PS1), but only one worked with ps3 and ps2 controllers, Crash Bash. There is something to do with multitap option or something?

all files are empty
@acris I don´t know why but that script never worked on my pi3.
In the beggining it was creating 4gb files, with the message "no space left", even with a lot of space free.
I was testing the controllers config at rgui menu, there is Default, Standard and some others options. Whats the difference between these two?
I´ve managed to make everything working again by changing that, exiting game and entering again. but the crash bash stopped working, but the others works again. Maybe I just need to change these when I need to play.

Hi, in psx emulator you can set your gamepad on normal/analog mod (retoarch menu - quick menu - options). Some games works only in normal mod, other in analog mod and others both.
Your gamepads have too a physical switch on normal/analog mod, and the mapping in es is not the same in these 2 mods.
So I'm pretty sure that is an issue betweens these mods gamepads + core. Last time I tried this adapter I had this kind of issue too.
I let you play with the different mods/options, and give us a feedback.
@rockaddicted Yes both my PS2 controllers have that analog button, but the controllers dosen´t work without it.
I´ve done a little research and discovered that even with original ps1, some games won´t work with multitap ON.
There is 2 not so pratical solutions:
1- Let Multitap option always on AUTO. And controllers on Default.
This will work in most games up to 2 players.
When playing games with 4 players, change the controllers to Standard.
(remember to exit game for the changes do effect)
2- Use configuration per game. But I don´t like to have this ON, because it will create configs for all games you play. Well this is usefull, but things can get messy really fast.
I wanted to know the difference between controller on standard and default, by the word seem to be the same thing. Or if it is a way to leave it on automatic or something.
