Key points

Main difference between the Dualshock 1 and 2 controllers is that the face buttons are pressure sensitive on the Dualshock 2.
PS2 emulators for PC support pressure sensitive buttons.
Requires adapter to connect to PC.
Lacks native XInput support, requiring the use of a XInput wrapper (see Windows) for games that do not support DirectInput or the controller natively.

Use with PC platforms[edit]


XInput wrapping[edit]

Acting as native DirectInput controller, it's possible to use any of the generic wrappers. See the controller article for those.

DualShock XInput Wrapper[edit] USB adapter only
Step One[edit]
Instructions[citation needed]
  1. Plug-in the desired controller and let Windows install any default drivers if needed.
  2. Download the DualShock XInput Wrapper.
  3. Extract the ScpServer folder inside the root directory of the main Local Disk location.
Step Two[edit]
Make sure to follow these steps in the right order, choose the appropriate system from the list.
Do not erase the ScpServer folder after installing the wrapper, if needed it can be hidden instead.
Windows 8 and Windows 10

Run ScpServer\Binaries\SCPDriver.exe and install the driver.

Windows 7[citation needed]
  1. Download and install the Xbox 360 Controller Drivers.
  2. Run ScpServer\Binaries\SCPDriver.exe, check the Force Install checkbox and install the driver.
Windows XP and Windows Vista[citation needed]
  1. Run ScpServer\Binaries\SCPDriver.exe, check the Force Install checkbox and install the driver.
  2. Download and install the Xbox 360 Controller Drivers.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.

Steam Link compatibility[edit]

Works natively over Mayflash PS2 Controller Adapter.[1]
Buttons are mapped incorrectly and must be remapped manually.
Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit and disable video and audio streaming.
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.


Mayflash SS/N64/PS2 Controller Adapter for PC USB[edit]

Just plug and play, no driver needed.
Compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7, Windows 8 32 bit and 64 bit, Windows 10.
Only for one player.

Bliss-Box Gamer-Pro[edit]

Directly compatible with PC. No driver needed, just plug and play.

Support in games[edit]

Games with generic DirectInput support are supported by the controller, however button placements may be out of place and need to be rebound. Refer to game-specific articles for rebinding support.

Games with DualShock button prompts[edit]

Please note, that this is only list for games that offer DualShock button prompts.
Some may require use of DualShock 4, which right now isn't possible to emulate. Refer to game-specific articles for details.
