PS1 Doom controller

Hello, I will be getting DOOM 1 and Final DOOM for PS1 for Christmas. I have a PS2. Will I be able to use my Dualshock 2? Like using the analog sticks? Or will I have to be forced to use the D-PAD? :P

You can use the Dualshock 2, but you have to use the D-pad. PSX Doom and PSX Final Doom were made when the PSX controller only had a D-pad, so no, you can't use the analog sticks. PSX Final Doom did support the PSX Mouse however, so you might want to look into that.

Since you aren't able to use the thumbsticks at all, this is a control scheme I recommend (since PSX Doom has full support for control configuration):

D-Pad to move and turn.
Square and Circle to strafe left and right.
R1 to fire.
X to use.
Weapon selection controls on L2 and R2.
Speed button on L1.

Had little difficulty circle-strafing big monsters with this config.

I actually really like the default setup; it's not modern in any sense, but it's still very functional.

I think the default control scheme is just fine as is. It parallels keyboard controls quite well.
