So uh.
« on: February 24, 2008, 10:45:23 pm »

Yeah, I'm new. Kool and stuff.  :spikes:

To the point, I got a question. I use a joypad to play IWBTG, and I use Joy2Key to configure it. Specifically I use a PS2 controller connected to my PC through an XBox/PS2/GC to USB converter. When I mapped the joystick to the arrow keys, even when I move the stick into neutral position, I still move. I've made it through the first two screens (through the room of Divine Transportation) but my controller's giving me problems when I tried to hop the bullet bill. Is it the Joy2Key causing this or am I just nuts.

It probably has something to do with the analog. :(

I fiddled with it a bit. I'm used to movement when my analog stick is all the way in the direction I want to move, but it's actually moving in the slightest direction out of neutral.

Moving while the analog stick is at neutral is a calibration problem.  Either use the controller's software or third-party software to recalibrate.  There may be ways to manually calibrate without using software, like moving the stick to all extremes, every corner it can go to, and letting it fall back to neutral; that depends on the controller and nowadays that doesn't always work (for some reason).  Usually that's how you software calibrate, anyway, but I've had sticks that won't self-calibrate.

The stick being over-sensitive sounds like the deadzone is too small.  I've never used joy2key, but a Google search of "joy2key deadzone" shows that there may be a way to configure the deadzone.  Make it larger and test until you're happy with it.

Hey, that might do it. And I found a guide for getting 360 controllers to work in the process =D

Are you using the trio-linker? My tip is, do NOT download any software for it at all. Windows should detect it, and so should linux. Atleast both does for me. But every software for it have just screwed it up.

The moving analog is not a problem with the converter or your computer, it's your controller. Just wiggle it abit and it should be neutral again. Happens with my controller sometimes too. But a wiggle fix everything.

It works fine. I readjusted the deadzone using the Joy2Key software =)
