I need help setting the directional buttons for the SNES9x emulator.

Like...I can set up the 4 basic directions but I can't set up the other 4 (8 directions total)

Like I can't set up down+right, or up+left because when I try to press two buttons, it just registers as one button.

Please help, thank you.

I am using a PS3 Dualshock 3 controller with tamamy's drivers (because **** motionjoy that's why)

Have you tried pressing two bordering basic directions in-game? I had the same problem with at least one emulator, but it was smart enough to realize that when both left and up were being pressed, it would act as left+up, so I didn't have to bother setting it up.

Yeah it works but barely. Like I would have to keep repetitively pressing it before it even registers as 2 directional buttons.

Like Ryu's Hadoken or Shroyuken for example.

Uh... if you have it setup right and you're doing the inputs correctly you shouldn't have a problem unless there's something wrong with your system.

You don't need to set up+right or down+right. SNES only had a 4 directional d-pad. If that's not working, I would wager something is messed with your controller or input driver.

Use this and see if certain combinations are unresponsive on your keyboard: http://www.microsoft.com/appliedsciences/content/projects/KeyboardGhostingDemo.aspx

Edit: Oh, controller... does your DS3 program map to a keyboard?
