    ePSXe Game Compatibility and Settings

    Ok, I have sideloaded ePSXe 1.9.4 on my Ouya, and after a lot of messing around, I have all games working, with controls. There is an issue.

    If you load a game, and find that the controls aren't working, it is cause you are in the wrong mode (analog, or digital). You will need to have a mode select button. You can do this by binding one of the buttons on your Ouya controller to the Mode button.

    Or, you can do what I did. Since the Ouya is missing 3 buttons necessary to complete a full PSX controller (start/select/mode), I bound Start to R3, Select to L3, and then I use the Onscreen Virtual Control Overlay. I hid all the buttons except the Mode button. If you want to go this route, do the following:

    1.) Go to TouchScreen Gamepad
    2.) Pad Skin = Custom
    3.) Go to Pad1 Format Editor
    4.) Click each control except the mode (the rectable at the bottom that is completely grey), and click Hide at the top. You might also want to move the Mode button to one side, so it isn't covering up the gaming area.
    5.) Once you have hidden everything, click Swap. It will prompt you to save. Do so, and it will load the Analog virtual controls. Do the same as step 4, hiding all cept the Mode button.
    6.) Save and exit

    Now, when you load up a game, the only virtual button you will see is the mode button. If you find you are in a game where the controls dont seem to be working, use the Ouya controllers touchpad to click the Mode button.

    Here are my ePSXe control settings:

    Using ePSXe Version: 1.9.4

    I am gonna add some more results here in a few. I will mention the bios file, and I will add the Game IDs (IE My Breath of Fire is SLUS_004.22)

    Actually, I just looked, and I think I was actually running 1.8.4. I just updated ePSXe on my tablet (to 1.9.4), and I will be copying the apk and installing the latest build. I will retest all the games after that.
