New Computer/New Problem
« on: December 26, 2019, 07:17:25 PM »
The joystick is not navigating the attractmode menu.

Running attract-console.exe reveals the following repeated message:

Failed to set DirectInput device axis mode: 1

This issue is not yet fixed, but a workaround is to hide the joysticks using this program: https://github.com/briankendall/devreorder

And remap them using antimicro https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro.

BTW antimicro is the best all-in-one solution I've used for remapping controllers to keyboard. It can detect running programs...

If I go back to version 2.2.1-win64 the joystick will work. Something seems to have changed when it was made as a gui app.

It just repeats

Brand new computer, no virtual joystick unless Steam installed one.

I'll just add, that this is frustrating because I really enjoy attractmode.

I have launchbox/bigbox, but prefer attractmode.

I think it is the SFML 2.4.1 used in compiling...

If I disable the joysticks I don't get the error...

Here is where they are located in device manager:

Any ideas on a fix?

I have a device that is registering itself as a joystick that isn't a joystick when I launch attractmode...look at this registry entry before and after executing attractmode.

I found a wrapper that will prevent the joysticks from being detected, and then I can use antimicro to send keys for using the newer version...or vjoy as a feeder...so there is a workaround, but not a viable permanent solution.
