Does the pad map to the controls ok in the Pad config utility?. You need to click on each button description displayed on screen, then push the button or direction on your pad that you want to use for that function. You should see the text change to identify the button press you've just made.
If you have successfully mapped your controller in the ePSXe pad config utility then also consider that ePSXe allows you to select the type of emulated controller (digital pad, dual shock etc) this will be the drop down menu in the top right corner of the pad utility screen.
I have found that ePSXe will expect different types of controller dependent on the game.
For example, I use a Dual Shock 2 with ePSXe and with most games its fine but some older games like Legacy of Kain - Blood Omen, won't work with it, however if I go back into controller config and set the controller as a PS1 Digital Pad (the one without analogue sticks) it works perfectly even though I am still using the same controller, so you need to use the pad config utility to tell ePSXe what type of Playstation controller you want it to emulate.
Hope that makes sense. If you're still stuck or not sure what I mean then post again.
ve alredy finish downloading some game files from the net but some files came up to be a MDF, MDS, and many others (exept for the ISO and BIN this two works perfectly) ive tried renaming some files to ISO and when i try to start s them it wasjust plain black,,,, so how can convert this file to ISO in a good way?? and whats the problem the plugins or the way i convert the files???? help me please i beg of you
Extract everything into the ePSXe folder. Playstation emulators use the PS1 bios rom to run. It doesn't form part of the core download because its a copyright rom of the Playstation operating system. The usual one is called scph1001.bin
When you run ePSXe for the first time you need to open the config menu from the toolbar, select the bios option and point it at the location of this bios file.
