Post [LINUX] [FIXED]XBMC LIVE and Logitech Rumblepad 2 (wireless)
edit: this is now fixed. see later on in this thread for solution

Hi all,

I am running xbmc live (runs ubuntu 10)

Now, the controllers work 90%, but for streetfighter 2, I cannot do the hado ken or anything that involves rolling the DPAD in a semi circle or full half circle.

Its not detecting the inputs properly i think. Is there a problem in ubuntu lucid with this?

Is there a test app for showing the input I am doing in real time?

Am i missing something stupid in the zsnes config? Or are the logitech pads just shit?

Any help much appreciated

just an update,

I have tried the same rumblepad on the win32 version of zsnes with the same input configuration and can perform all the ryu/ken moves easily.

Something definitely up with my linux install.......

Look forward to some ideas,
Vae

I know this is odd, but you could try to look for the Nintendo SNES Test cartridge ROM. It has a section where it checks diagonals. From there you can start to eliminate things until you identify the problem.

EDIT: ROMs are copyright, don't as for it or for where to get it blah blah blah...

...or try any game with a map that's independently scrollable. you'll be able to see exactly where the diagonals are cutting off...

Ok using the snes test rom definitely shows a problem. The test program highlights which dpad keys are being pressed.

For example, moving the dpad in a circular direction from right to left when reaching left, the diagnol keypress of down+left is still registering.

It's as if the diagonal is sticking and not unregistering.

In the win32 version of zsnes, correct behaviour with the test rom is observed.

If I recall, this is a known problem with Linux.

Ok fixed it.

found this old thread in which someone had something similar with diagonals sticking, and had made a custom build of zsnes

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13034

I implemented the fix as follows:


Code:
sudo apt-get remove zsnes


then install his custom (lucid) build of zsnes
Code:
wget https://launchpad.net/~smaxein/+archive/ppa/+files/zsnes_1.510-2.2ubuntu4~ppa1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i zsnes_1.510-2.2ubuntu4~ppa1_i386.deb


voila! everything working sweet as a nut

Ah.

I knew there was a fix somewhere, but I couldn't find it for the life of me. Must've used the wrong search terms.
