    Default PC Gamepads

    I have been looking to buy a new PC Joypad recently, and was going to buy the Logitech Wingman Rumblepad from dabs but they now say it's obsolete and dont supply it any more. So i was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a joypad (with analog sticks on it). Also has anyone got one of the PS to PC joypad converters and if so how well does it work?

    lik sang has a converter for psx/ps2/n64 for the pc about 12/13 USD

    ordered it yesterday, can't wait for it



    but even though people go for wingman MS has the sidewinder series which are excellent, i got the original when they got released and i love it. Their rumble technology is prbably the best of all the controlers, if u used console rumble technology u'll notice the difference

    i ordered the ps/ps2/n64 converter from console plus and a ps2 pad from play. would have bought the wingman if anywhere actually sold it. if microsoft had a gamepad with analogue sticks id happily have bought it, my original sidewinder is still excellent. oh well cant wait for me converter and pad now

    ok i got my pad and my converter. just tried need for speed hot pursuit 2 and there was no rumble in he joypad. Checked the options and the force feedback (which i assume would be where u go) was disabled. Does the PS/PS2/N64 converter allow you to use the dual shock capabilites and if so how?

    i dont think there is rumble, remeber its only a converter its not going to do everything you would expect from a playstation lol but the feel and amount of buttons which are configurable are amazing.
