    Playstation Button Prompt on Windows 10?

    Hi all!

    I've been wondering on various forums across the net trying to find an answer to this. Hopefully I can find it here.

    I have an issue with Controller Configuration. So, I have a PS2 controller that I connect with an adapter to my PC and thus making it detected as a PS3 controller. The issue I'm having is that many games I play that require the controller to use it always has the buttons mapped in-game as generic controller buttons, like "Button 1, Button 2, etc." instead of the Playstation mapping like "X, Square, R1, L2, Start, Select, etc.". Itís quite honestly irritating to always have to remember them for specific actions, in-game control mapping, and especially Quick Time Events.

    I then checked the Settings for the Controller Configuration on Steam and see that in the Define Layout it shows an XBox controller and the buttons mapped as I wrote in the paragraph before. I attach the images showing it here in Imgur. Please do have a look at them.

    • One image shows that it is a PS3 Controller that is detected.
    • One image shows the Controller Layout does not match my PS2/3 controller.
    • One Image shows the Guide Button Chord that shows the exact buttons I want to be displayed in the games.

    I already checked Devices and Printers in the Control Panel but over there the options are limited to only testing the buttons and sticks.

    I look forward to your answers and help.

    Thank you.

    Cheers :) :)

    If I had to guess.....which I am, I'd say start looking at the adapter as the cause. Then shop other adapters and check the specs for mapping and see what you come up with. The only other option would be get a new PS3 or PS4 controller and just bypass the need for an adapter.
