    I'm basically completely lost on this. On the DS side, should I be using DS2Key or DSPad? Same question for the PC side, except that there's a third server available called xDS2Key. Is there any way to have mouse support without running PP2Joy? Pretty sure that's everything. Thanks for any help.

    i use DS2Win Fusion v0.82 myself.
    it has good mouse support, tough it's keyboard functions don't work in most games.

    Just thought I'd let everybody know that DSPad and xDS2Key was a massive failure for me. The mouse controls worked fine (as fine as it could the way it's set up; I'd prefer it to act more like a touchpad than like a tablet, but oh well), but the actual buttons only worked on every eighth press or so, making it completely unusable. I ended up using DSPad 0.2 with the regular DS2Key server (version 0.7 beta). There's a newer version of DSPad, but the xDS2Key author recommended using the older version, so that's what I had around when I switched to using DS2Key from the x version. I guess I'll try out the newer version next and see how that works.

    EDIT: DSPad 0.2b works fine with DS2Key 0.7 beta, so I guess I'll be using that until something better (like a fixed xDS2Key) is released.
