Hey I'm just getting in to melty blood and I'd like to use a PS2 controller(the xbox 360 dpad is the worst thing ever). I was wondering a couple things. I read the thread and I hear lots of complaints about the radio shack one with different kinds of sticks, but does it have lag with just a normal ps2 controller? If it does is the super joy box 3 a fine alternative, or should i wait for the converter in the first post to get back in stock?

Real converters don't work well for analog controllers, in other words dual shock 2

if your looking forward to only playing on Pc then grab a Super Joy Box 3 Pro

if your gonna want it to also convert to PS3 then your gonna have to grab a psx pad(you can find em on ebay for like $5) and wait for the Real converters to be back in stock

right now SRK is testing another converter for lag, if it turns out to be good then theres probably gonna be a post about it here

Cool, i don't care about the ps3 conversion(and if i'm gonna drop hundreds of dollars on a ps2 the 20ish dollars on the converter won't be too pad). thanks a ton for the info.

If you want a good converter, you can PM laugh on SRK.  The Inpins are as good as the Real or the Pelican.  Ive done business with him and so have lots of others, he is pretty reliable.

Seems like the Inpin is the new good converter.

While I don't claim to be able to analyse it frame-by-frame, nor have much experience with the ps2 controller plugged into an actual ps2, my super dual box pro always seemed to get the job done with my dualshock 2.  After I lost that, my "usb super converter" that I got seems to work just as well (even though I don't even know who made this thing).

I'm trying to switch to using the arcade stick.  Mayflash's stick sucks, but that's why I'm planning on modding it.  At least, since it is both usb AND ps2, I don't have to deal with converters when using it on the pc or ps2.  With a converter, I used it just fine to play CvS2 on my Dreamcast (though I'm probably worse with a stick at that game than I am at MBAA).

HORI sticks are notorious for not being compatible with a lot of generic adapters and thus, lag is born. So if you use a HORI stick, you should be getting the best adapter available if you plan to plug in your HRAP2 to a PC/PS3

Guess my friend with a Hori is lucky he has a 360 stick instead of a PS3 stick, thus rendering a converter unnecessary :)

I'm just wondering.. why does the ps3 controller not work in MBcaster?
Edit
I got it fixed while messing in config_caster. I had to set the input device to 0.
