Angry Joystick no longer works

I donít know if this applies to all joysticks, but at least, my gamepad does not work with JJ2+.
  • When itís connected to my computer when I run JJ2+, my rabbit always looks up when it stops (I can still play with the keyboard).
  • The button 3 works like the Enter key.
  • I didnít find another effect. The gamepad buttons donít work, I can control neither my rabbit neither the menu with my gamepad.

I didnít study this bug completely, but here you have the symptoms of something bad so I feel itís enough to study it yourself as skilled developers (if you have a joystick). My gamepad works very fine in vanilla JJ2. I donít have another joystick; I hope my problems are not linked to my model but rather to some bad hack of JJ2+ developers.

Iíve noticed that thereís some ĎControlsí item in the in-game menu, which allows to set an effect to mouse events. I feel this feature should have been placed in the usual Options menuÖ Well, from my point of view, itís something barely useful that messed the original Controls feature and that hinders my sister and me to play JJ2+ on my computer. But Iím still happy that there are people who are keen to add new features to JJ2.

This has absolutely no connection to the existence of the ingame Controls menu or mouse aim options.

I have a similar problem to this one. The rabbit is always looking up and the ďupĒ and ďdownĒ buttons donít work. I tried turning mouse aiming off, tried to change the ďupĒ and ďdownĒ buttons in the controls, but i still have the same bug.
I also noticed that this bug happens in the plus version only, while nonplus version works normally.
What should i do to solve it?

I already downloaded plus_controller_diagnostics.zip, but the numbers don't change whatever I press.
Maybe that's because I play with a keyboard not a joystick, so what should I do now?
Please reply, Thanks.

Your computer may be erroneously reporting some other device as sending controller data. Try running JJ2 with the -nojoy command line option.

Okay, so my bug report is a duplicate of the one you linked. Sorry for not having seen it before. Thank you Violet CLM for your assistance, Iíll reply on the other thread.

From there, Iíve got no proof that there is no connection between this bug and the ingame Controls menu and mouse aiming options, but I take your words for it. Your answer was fair anyway as I showed my anger quite indecently.

(Please also forget my analysis of the bug above, it was wrong. Iíll give more details in the other thread.)
