Is it possible to invert the up/down controls for a joystick/joypad in Daphne? I have Windows Xp, and hence my joystick shows up in the "game controllers" applet. Therefore, it's a directinput controller. The issue seems to be that regardless of what I specify in the daphne configuration applet, it can't be reversed. I also tried using a keyboard mapper such as joytokey, but again a failure. I guess this is because Daphne is reading directly from DirectInput somehow?

I should also mention that my joystick is the second of two devices in the game controllers applet. I gather from some other posts that Daphne only reads Joy0, but other than the fact I can't remap directions, everything else functions OK.

As a followup to my own question, I did verify that the stick is set to joystick 0, but still no luck. The joystick handler for Daphne is bizarre. You can specify down for up in the config applet in daphneloader, but it has absolutely no effect. You can't override the controls with a keyboard emulator like controlmk or joytokey, and somehow the -nojoystick command line option manages to disable the keyboard emulation of the above mappers too..even though it continues to work outside of Daphne, even while Daphne is running. It's almost like this program is written to thwart attempts to customize the controls.

I guess as a last resort I could look into daiinput, but I'm not optimistic.

There is currently no way to invert the joystick Y axis.

Im having trouble with the controls if somone could help me. I have a volume button on my keyboard that i use to lower the sound while my arcade is playing. everytime i use it while a daphne game is in place the game either closes it self or freezes the video screen? I dont understand why the volume button has anything to do with daphne. Any help?
