arcade joystick problem
04/20/17 02:08 PM

Good evening,

I have a classic arcade joystick with gameport and a linux laptop. I use an adapter from the gameport on the usb: :
Starting any game, I have the following problem: The joystick is behaving as if it is stuck and is going only up and left.

I have 3 arcade joysticks and all do the same.
I have a usb joystick and works perfectly.
I have tried all configurations on adapter (it has a switch with 4 position).
And something strange: While in calibration (I do cal with every joystick) it works perfectly, but in the game does what I described above.
I use mageia linux. The same happens with linux games.
The same happens with other distributions, such as batocera.

Have you encounter something similar? Do you have any idea?
