Vanilla JJ2 isn't affected by this issue because vanilla JJ2 can't be controlled by directional pads at all, only by analog sticks, but JJ2+ introduces directional pad support, and that's interacting badly with your controller. Fortunately, I think I was able to find a windows function to test if controllers actually have directional pads, to avoid querying their directions when the data would be incorrect. Does this work?
Hey dude.
I just got an older PC that I've installed Windows XP on for playing old games like these. Anyway, JJ2+ didn't want to recognize my joypad at all, and when I tried using Joy2Key my rabbit kept looking up. I then tried that DLL you posted there and now everything works perfect and my joypad is recognized to start with, this is working great.

However, you know, there's a bunch of debug information cluttering the screen. Is there a way to turn it off, or can you make an update without the debug mode?
