Hi. I recently got myself a saitek p3200 rumble gamepad. Nice one all in all, has 7 axes and 12 buttons (d-pad is treated as 2 axes). There is a problem with left analog stick though (axes 0 and 1 according to jstest), as sdlmame seems to be completely ignoring input from those. I can assign every other axis or button to any sdlmame action, just not these two. Any ideas? Thanks in advance! This is on Fedora 9/x86_64.

P.S.
Is anybody aware of some Linux application which would make the pad rumble?

you can try to toggle the "digital" button on the gamepad, if i mistakenly hit that on my saitek p990 my left analog stick is not recognized in game.
i could never get the kernel module for force feedback to work with my p2500, that's why i decided just to upgrade to the p990 instead of the p3200 for the 2 extra trigger buttons.

There is no "digital" button on this gamepad. I'm thinking of some SDL limitation/bug. Is there any sdl joystick test application available?

I'm not aware of an explicit "SDL joystick test application", but you could try it through QMC2 and see how that works. It should show / support all axes and buttons of the stick. You could at least see if they are all recognized...

They are all recognised in qmc2, as well as by jstest. Does qmc2 use sdl to access joystick-related functions?

Yes, it does.

Seems like an sdlmame-specific problem then.

Please post the output of "mame -verbose". This will give us an idea how the joystick is viewed by sdlmame.

Here you go. Looks like it is detected correctly. Weird...

Did you recognize the line saying "Invalid joystick map: 0" in your output!? Check mame.ini and the joymap configuration...
