I guess I'll have to wait for the next version to use my controller.

I tried another control last night with the same results.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm running WinXP Pro.

Here's what's happening:

Note: I've tried to reconfigure starcon.key to make the buttons work correctly based on what happens in game, and the buttons all do completely different things.

Control Button = Action In Game
Up = Up (Correct)
Down = Right
Left = Left (Correct)
Right = Nothing
Button 0 (A) = Down
Button 1 (B) = Enter
Button 2 (C) = Not Assigned (Correct)
Button 3 (X) = Space
Button 4 (Y) = RCtrl
Button 5 (Z) = Nothing
Button 6 (L) = LShift (Correct)
Button 7 (R) = RShift (Correct)
Button 8 (Start) = Not Assigned (Correct)
Button 9 (M) = Not Assigned (Correct)

starcon.key
# Pause
"F1"
# Exit
"F10"
# Abort
"F12"
# Player 1
<Joyport0-threshold1000>
"a" <Joy-A0+>
"d" <Joy-A0->
"w" <Joy-A1+>
"s" <Joy-A1->
"Enter" <Joy-B0>
" " <Joy-B1>
"RCtrl" <Joy-B3>
"Esc" <Joy-B4>
"LShift" <Joy-B6>
"RShift" <Joy-B7>
# Player 2

I tried using the number pad to enter the values, and that had no effect.

Ok that fixed the repeating issue, but now I can't seem to get the buttons or directions setup correctly.

Ok, it's a digital pad, but I guess it's worth a shot.

When I try to press a direction on the pad, it works, but then it's as if the game thinks I'm holding down that direction on the pad (It continuously cycles & gradually accelerates in the same direction).
I have the original Microsoft Sidewinder Gamepad (Not USB).
My settings are posted below.  Am I doing something wrong?

Here is a copy of my starcon.key file:

# Pause
"F1"
# Exit
"F10"
# Abort
"F12"
# Player 1
<Joyport0-threshold0>
"Left" <Joy-A0->
"Right" <Joy-A0+>
"Up" <Joy-A1->
"Down" <Joy-A1+>
"Enter" <Joy-B0>
" " <Joy-B1>
"RCtrl" <Joy-B3>
"Esc" <Joy-B4>
"LShift" <Joy-B6>
"RShift" <Joy-B7>
# Player 2
"s"
"f"
"e"
"d"
"w"
"q"
"a"
