I'm having trouble configuring the joypad/directional control in VBA. When I first downloaded Version 1.2, I configured the joypad without any problems. One day the joystick controls all of a sudden quit working and I can't figure out how to get it working again. There are some strange and baffling factors involved here and I was hoping somebody might have an idea what's going on and how I can resolve this. First off, when I say 'joystick controls' I'm referring strictly to the directionals, or the buttons that VBA recognizes as Joy 1 Up, Joy 1 Down, Joy 1 Left, and Joy 1 Right. The default settings match the joypad on my game controller (Gravis Eliminator Gamepad Pro). Before the joypad quit working with VBA, I didn't originally need to configure them. I can assign any of the remaining buttons on my game controller to the directionals but I can't assign the joypad to them. During the long process of trying to figure this thing out on my own, I discovered after downloading all VBA versions dating back to Version 0.7, that I can configure the joypad with versions 0.7 and 0.8. I cannot configure the joypad with all newer versions starting with Version 0.9a. I consulted Version 0.9a's 'readme.txt' to see what changes were implemented, in the hope that I might find a clue in there somewhere. These were the only entries I found listed in the 'readme.txt' that were relevant to joystick configuration: - fixed bug reading joypad when LCD is off (under Gameboy Changes) - support for more joystick axes and HAT(POV) (under Windows Changes) I DID reinstall the drivers for my game controller right around the same time I discovered that the joypad wasn't working in VBA 1.2 anymore. As was mentioned before, it used to work but then it stopped. So I'm thinking the problem quite possibly stems from that. On the other hand, it doesn't readily explain why the joypad still works with the older VBA versions but not the newer versions. Also, my joypad works with everything else, including several emulators (ZSnes and UltraHLE for example) as well as several PC games. The only thing it doesn't work with is the newer versions of VBA. Has anyone else ever experienced this problem who might know what the solution is? System specs: Pentium3 866 L2; WindowsME; 128MB RAM. I hope I didn't forget anything.
