DualShock 4 not working in PS1 Games
RAC last edited by
I’m having some trouble getting RetroArch to recognise my DualShock 4. The analog sticks work fine in EmulationStation, but not in any analog compatible PlayStation game. I read the guide (link below) but the options suggested don’t appear.
How to replicate the problem:
- Connect DualShock 4 via USB
- Configure in EmulationStation
- Launch analog compatible PS1 game (tested with Alien Resurrection, Need for Speed 3 and Metal Gear Solid).
- Launch RetroArch menu
- Go to Controls > Port 1 Controls > Device Type
According to the guide, the available options should be “standard” and “DualShock”.
Actual options are “None”, “RetroPad” and “RetroPad w/ Analog”... and none of these options allow my analog sticks to work in a PS1 game.

Ok, after some more digging around in the menu, it’s just a simple error in the documentation.
The correct path is: Quick Menu > Options > Pad # Type
