Any way to get real analog control for PSX games?

    The control scheme #4 only gives the psp stick control over the 8 way digital direction control.

    Most of the later generation psx games relied heavily on analog control, and the psp hardware clearly capable of producing it (really, one stick is all that's needed in almost every case). why is the option not available??

    Is there any way (hack/homebrew app) to get around this? the hardware is there, so it would only need software to make it work.

    Been looking forward to playing Chrono Cross on my psp and 1 hour in I think I'm gonna stop. Digital pad control just doesn't cut it for this, (or most of the psxs best games).

    I don't really understand what you want. As you yourself have said, control scheme 4 uses the analog for movement. So... you can move with the analog or with the d-pad, what more do you want? AFAIK, you can also make your own custom control scheme in later firmware versions.

    Sorry. I thought I made it clear. The digital pad lets you move in 8 directions. Real anolog control gives you 360 degrees of movement. the full circle. (proboble something less, but well more than 8)

    When you use the stick on psx games on the psp your just getting 8 directions. its just shifting control of the D-pad to the anolog stick instead of giving you real anolog control. The stick itself is capaple full analog control for psp games, the way it is on consoles.

    I hope that's clearer.

    He's saying that the analog stick on the PSP, when used to play PS1 games, doesn't actually detect how far you're pushing it, so its just like the D-Pad.

    Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to have true analog until Sony updates the PS1 emu.

    The same thing happened to me two days ago that I started a new game on Chrono Cross after finishing Chrono Trigger on the DS. Althought is a little dissapointing not to have full analog control, is not that bad. For an RPG analog control for me is not that important, I have been playing CC for 2 hours now and all is fine and dandy. Now for games lime Metal Gear Solid and the like it is really a bummer that we don't have analog control for PS1 games on the PSP.

    Its possible to connect ds3 to PSP go but most of the time I prefer to play without dualshock3. I find PSP go very ergonomic and I'm a more than average size guy and age 36.

    I never understand people who complain about PSP go's ergonomy

    compared to the other psp models, the gos stick is the least accessible. thats just how it is. it also has stronger resistance than the other model ones, making it less easy to use. everything else about the go is great in my opinion. just the stick isn't
