The joystick configuration is working fine. I can map the appropriate joystick controls and they all respond in the joystick configuration screen. However, when I run games, they only respond to certain buttons. For example in Arkanoid Revenge of DOH only the fire button responds, the left right does not move the paddle on the screen left or right. In Asteroids Deluxe, the ship can rotate and fire and move just fine. But it seems like it's the only game that is working correctly. It works whether I have it set to Direct Input or Windows Multimedia.
I haven't used the emulators for a few years but the last I remember, I got the joysticks working on a lot of games. It might have been on Windows 7.
I have both a usb and a wireless Xbox Controller for PC. Both of them have the same symptoms. I've also tried them on 3 different Windows 10 Pro systems
Does anyone have a preferred mapping that works for more games?
