No...nobody does that, except when they get paid to do it. It's not like I'm sitting around waiting for someone to post so I can reply quickly. I just happened to pass by and see your post.

From what I understand, it works with the left stick, correct?

Run Robotron, press TAB, look inside "controls, this game" and see what the settings are for the left stick when that .ini file is loaded. If needed, compare the settings when it's not loaded so you can see exactly what changes.
Then make the settings for the right stick (your z-axis) the same, manually. Once you exit the game these changes should now be reflected in robotron.cfg, from where you can copy them to your robotron.ini.

All available physical axis can be adjusted and mapped to a game's joystick(s). It shouldn't matter if it's Z or Y or X.

That said...I have never seen an ini file with numbers like you posted so I have to admit that I'm guessing. But it seems to me it should work..who knows.
