ok one last reply and then I give up.
has anybody using an analog stick been able to play Super Breakout on the MESS v136 Atari 5200
IF YES then please tell us the settings
it's no good just saying random suggestions as it should be a lot easier than this to set up a joystick
#Andy - again have you tried this in mess?
I have a usb joypad that look's like a playstaion pad
it has 10 button's a joystick on the left and an analog stick on the right I have set it up in windows and the meters show the data rise from 0 to 255 when I move the stick (not jump it is an increase so I could get it to 65 if I move it just a bit)
when you let go of the joypad (the right analog one) it self centres....so this should tell mess I have recentered the atari joystick as mess thinks that is what I am using but it doesn't,it ignores that data.
now the atari controller has two pots and when you move the atari controller, one of the pots told it the left and right position, so if you moved the atari controller halfway to the left the bat on the screen would move from the center to halfway to the left side and STOP. then when you recentered the atari controller the bat followed and recentered but this is not happening.
Please try the game, it would take 10 min's
