I have been watching this thread and I must say, I am really happy with what you are doing for us :)

though, I seem to be having a problem… :(

I am trying to use my “DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick ” gamepad, it works for everything else, and start/A/B work in reicast as standard, I just updated to your latest build, and upon running reicast it has pulled out

[DragonRise Inc.   Generic   USB  Joystick  ]

To my emu.cfg file, so up updated it and added some Btn_ to check if it was working (quit seemed the obvious button to set)

button.1=Btn_A
button.2=Btn_B
button.8=Quit
button.9=Btn_Start

But when I restart reicast my controller has no default functions than normal and if I check the config again, It has created a new entry for my controller and is not using the config I set..

This seems to be the issue…

When it is first created in the config it is called

[DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick ] (notice the spaces at the end)

So I make changes to that entry and restart, when I check the config after its been renamed to

[DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick] (notice no spaces)

and a new entry is created underneath

[DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick ] (with spaces again)

So it seems that the one with spaces is the one I want, but it seems to rename it and create a new one each time…any ideas??

Thanks
