    We have got the same adapter you have and will add its support in next version. But note that in PC mode it won't have support for pressure sensitive buttons. Just in case.
    Another thing to note: double-pressing Analog button on PS2 controller just switches this adapter to Xbox 360 mode, so may be it would be better.
    This of course may depend on which PS2 gamepad you have.

    That is excellent news! I will be patient then.

    I see, that's a bummer. Doubt I will get very far with a refund, since it's been a couple of months since I ordered it and there is technically nothing wrong with it.

    May I ask what exactly is preventing you from implementing a generalized D-Input support? (I know I have asked this before, I just found the answer to be a bit vague.) With all the marvelous feats you have added to the software I doubt it's a lack of skill on your end, right?
    I mean, it would open up so many doors. Loads of cheap controller adapters, like the one we've been troubleshooting, would be instantly usable for a wide array of games.

    If it is an UI concern, I can see that. reWASD's UI is pretty well designed and it is clear that a lot of work has gone into it with every supported device having custom layout images.
    However, I think there would be ways to design around that.
    What came to mind was the way Xpadder (I'm sure you're familiar with it) handled it. Connect a device, then press all the buttons, pads, sticks and what not . For every registered input a square pops up. Drop a custom image of your controller into it and drag the squares to their corresponding buttons. Name all the squares according to the button it is representing and start configuring profiles.
    The images could be provided and shared within the community, I'm sure there are a few enthusiasts among us here that would be happy to create some. I know I would.
    And in order to not confuse casual users with it, it could be labeled an experimental feature which can be toggled on and off through the settings.

    Something like this, maybe. I understand that a feature like this without proper images could make the software look a bit messy, which is why I suggest the community sharing and experimental feature approach.

    I can only speak for myself, but D-Input support is pretty much the only thing missing from making reWASD the perfect mapping software.

    It seems that the problem is in the version of the adapter. We're sorry we recommended it. Try contacting the seller or manufacturer for a refund.

    Okay, I have tried a different PC. It's still not recognized by reWASD.

    We assume that the adapter has been re-released because older versions of this model had no problems. It is likely that something has changed in the product, due to which the adapter has a different report.
    Try on another PC to be sure it's not the system.​

    Well, I ordered it from Amazon.de, since I'm German and it wouldn't have been feasible to order from the US. However, the ASIN (some kind of Amazon cataloguing number) on both products is identical. The images are idental. It even shares the same user reviews as the US one. So, it's safe to assume I bought the adapter that was linked.

    For reference: This is the adapter I bought. And this is the adapter that was linked here.

    Since it's been nearly two months and there's been a new release since then:

    Any news on the matter?

    And as previously mentioned, in the device manager it's listed as "HID-compliant game controller", nothing more.
    My adapter is acting completely the same and not working with reWASD. Even names are the same ("PS3/PC Gamepad"). I was advised to change adapter, so I was planning to buy this OSTENT one. But I see that you have the same issues like I have with the one which I have already, so I will wait for some time. So maybe it's not a really problem with my adapter.

    Thank you.
    Also, I need to collect logs of the connection. Here is how:
    1. Unplug/disconnect all physical controllers and their adapters, if present.
    2. Run reWASD as Administrator.
    3. Open 'Preferences > General', select 'Standard logging' with 'Service/Driver logs' only.
    4. Click the 'Start log' button and leave 'Preferences'.
    5. Connect your adapter and wait a few seconds until it appears as a new device at the bottom left corner of the app.
    6. Go to 'Preferences > General' again and click the 'Stop log' button.
    7. In the message that will appear, click 'Open file location', find the archive that was created last, and send it to us.

    If you have accidentally closed the message, you can still find the archive in ​the C:\Users\Public\Documents\reWASD\Logs folder.
