Change DirectX Button Assignments

Apr 19, 2002
Does anybody know how to change the default button assignments in Direct X For a Device. I want to change them so that i can specify another button on my device as button 1 other than the one that was set as button one by default.

As an example of what i mean - i have a Dual PSX adapter which allows me to use a PS2 Joypad on my PC, the triangle (top) button by default is the main selection button in all games, i want to change this so that it is the X (bottom) button by default. Looking in Game Controllers shows that by default triangle is button 1, i wish to change button 1 to the X button.

I use default windows drivers.

have you tried running "dxdiag" from run line yet? theres an "input" tab that perhaps will allow you to mess w/ your controller ... I don't have one so no idea :p

Yeah, i looked into that but i cannot see anywhere where i can do it.

I swear i saw a proggy once that would let you do it - it wasnt JoyToKey but something similar - dammed if i can find it though.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
