    Download and install the latest version of PCSX2 from the developer website(see Resources).

  2. 2

    Open the SSSPSX v.1.7.1 Pad plugin from the downloaded PCSX2 file on your computer.

  3. 3

    Press "Configure" to begin configuring your analog controller. Hit the "LX, LY, RX, RY" buttons to configure your analog axis. After you have pressed one of the buttons simply move your analog stick in the correct direction to assign it.

  4. 4

    Select "R3" and "L3" to map the buttons to the same configuration as they would be on the analog stick of a PS2 controller. Click "OK" when you are finished and restart the emulator for the changes to take effect.

Tips and warnings

  • Ensure you have the BIOS file from your PS2 on your computer. PS2 emulators require the BIOS file in order to run PS2 games.
  • Always enable your antivirus software when downloading anything from the internet.
  • Playing Playstation 2 games via an emulator without owning a hard copy of the game is illegal.
