AW: AW: [mythtv-users] Myth Game Emulation - Setup

I got a psx2 to usb adapter. I bought it from Radio Shack. Also, I recall 
recompiling my kernel(with Joy support) back in Feb 2005 because I was 
planning to play Unreal Tournament using psx2 controller. Unfortunately, I 
didn't really paid to much attention until now. For the zsnes, I just 
selected input #1 and clicked on set keys, then assigned each buttons 
separately. For GameBoy, it was a bit tougher because you have to download a 
tool called SLD-test. I used this tool to capture every key pressed. 

That's what I did. I'm gonna look at the link you gave me on how I will add 
GBA to myth. I hope, it's a different link from the one I was using 

Tonight, I will be recompiling emu64 nintendo without patch support. If 
there are errors, I will post it here...
