« on: February 12, 2008, 08:36:59 pm »

First of all, have you selected joystick 1 as the controller for Player One (Setup/Configure Controls)? Next, have you made sure the configuration for the joystick is actually correct (Setup/Configure Controls/Edit Controls)? Finally, have you made sure UQM can see your joypad (see stderr.txt in the UQM directory for the debug log)?

Hi there.

Yes to all three, this is why this prob is bizzare.   UQM must be able to see my Joypad as it works fine for everything except in game.

Strange, indeed. Can you post your keys.cfg or flight.cfg file (whichever is newer if you have both)?

You will find the relevant file in your settings directory. This is the file we need to see; uploading it to e.g. a web or FTP server and posting a link here, or opening the file in your favourite text editor (Notepad should do) and cutting-and-pasting into a (long) post will both accomplish this.

That's not the settings directory. Did you actually follow the link to the FAQ?

First of all, I meant the settings directory link, not the FAQ link in my signature, although they both link to the same page, just different sections. Both links work for me.

All right, I think I see the problem. Try adding the following to that file:

Code:
# This is a sample joystick configuration.  This is intended to work
# primarily under WinXP with a USB analog/digital gamepad.  The
# digital aspect of the gamepad happens to present itself to the
# system as a POV hat.  This configuration allows either the digital
# or analog stick to be used simultaneously.  More importantly, it
# gives us a chance to give examples for all of the various input types
# that UQM can handle.

joystick 0 threshold 10000   # How far to move before it counts; 0-30000

Template-5-Up: joystick 0 axis 1 negative
Template-5-Down: joystick 0 axis 1 positive
Template-5-Left: joystick 0 axis 0 negative
Template-5-Right: joystick 0 axis 0 positive

Template-5-Up: joystick 0 hat 0 up
Template-5-Down: joystick 0 hat 0 down
Template-5-Left: joystick 0 hat 0 left
Template-5-Right: joystick 0 hat 0 right

Template-5-Weapon: joystick 0 button 0
Template-5-Special: joystick 0 button 1
Template-5-Escape: key Escape

Menu-Up: joystick 0 axis 1 negative
Menu-Down: joystick 0 axis 1 positive
Menu-Left: joystick 0 axis 0 negative
Menu-Right: joystick 0 axis 0 positive

Menu-Up: joystick 0 hat 0 up
Menu-Down: joystick 0 hat 0 down
Menu-Left: joystick 0 hat 0 left
Menu-Right: joystick 0 hat 0 right

Menu-Cancel: joystick 0 button 1
Menu-Select: joystick 0 button 0

You may have to switch to the joystick template from the setup menu in UQM after making this change.

Thanks m8.  The Joypad now works throughout the menus as it did before but then stopped for some reason.

Still doesn't work within the actual game though.

Good, that means the missing joystick definitions are OK and we only need to assign the joystick to a player. All right, let's check uqm.cfg (in the same directory). Could you please post the contents of that file here?
