CD32 Competition Pro joypad issues with whdload

Certain games like fire and ice wont even register the joypad

Same for choas engine cd32 and a game like skelten crew is all over the place

Street Fighter 2 is another one

Are those whdload bugged or is it hardware

Normal games seem to register it fine two button wise

Os 3.9 Bb2

Street Fighter II supports only 2 button joystick/gamepad, like Mastersystem ones.

For other games the problem can be the hardware revision of your motherboard.
Some 1D.4 Commodore are fussy.
2B revisions have problems with CD32 joypads.

Anyway there are a lot of discussions on the forum about this.

Please test other games with CD32 controls added (for instance here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=68797) and report.

The mentionned games may use lowlevel.library, through emulated kickstart. Some other games use hardware read. If there's one game where the CD32 controls work, then it's not a hardware issue.

(some original games also have broken 2nd button support originally, fixed in whdload slave)

Note : joypad wont register means it completely unresponsive

looks like a problem with lowlevel.library code. I'm pretty sure that the games you're mentionning not to work are using lowlevel.library, where the others don't.

For instance Chuck Rock & Zool (floppy) are using custom (hardware) joypad read. If this works, it means that SOTB3, Desert Strike, Ruff&Tumble, Deliverance, and all originally non-CD32 games work, cos they're using hardware read.

I'm going to try to adapt the ones that don't work to use the hardware routine. If that works, your problem (and all 1B-rev motherboard owners) is solved.

Maybe opening issues on whdload mantis would be a good idea (mentionning the 1B-rev thingy)

Some games just don't like the CD32 pad. Take the Licenceware game Outfall... the d-pad works fine but no buttons register in the game at all, it only requires one fire button as well.

Also noticed that on one A1200 1D.4 Commodore I own (recapped) CD32 pad is recognized via lowlevel.library if I use an original 3A Power Supply.
With a PC ATX one joypad is recognized only in direct hardware access.

Other motherboards (1D.1, 1D.4 A.T.) don't have problems.

Outfall is a standard executable with no slave written for it. I was merely using it as an example that not all games play nicely with the CD32 controller.

Psygore has written a good tool (http://aminet.net/package/driver/input/JoyPortTest) to check for joypad. Can use lowlevel or not. Useful to test those broken boards.

A little update on this

It seem the games i mention are defaulting to joystick mode

For Fire & Ice if i used the mouse in player 1 port i can start the game when i switch back to cd32 controller can move but cant fire

For Super Metheane bros same applies - chaos engine same

And just to double check things games wise they work fine with a normal joystick

Also when it comes to the lowlevel library http://www.whdload.de/games/Virocop.html uses it and the cd32 joypad works fine
