Hi guys,
I'm trying to combine one of the best portable consoles with my beloved game of the past, sensible soccer.
Although the dosbox port runs great, and the game indeed starts, I can't find a way to configure input for the dpad or analog stick.

I tried what I could but I am at lost now. Other buttons seem t work but I see no way to force dosbox to recognize either dpad or the stick.

this is the joystick section from the config file shipped with the port
[joystick]
# joysticktype -- Type of joystick to emulate: auto (default), none,
# 2axis (supports two joysticks), 4axis,
# fcs (Thrustmaster), ch (CH Flightstick).
# none disables joystick emulation.
# auto chooses emulation depending on real joystick(s).
# timed -- enable timed intervals for axis. (false is old style behaviour).
# autofire -- continuously fires as long as you keep the button pressed.
# swap34 -- swap the 3rd and the 4th axis. can be useful for certain joysticks.
# buttonwrap -- enable button wrapping at the number of emulated buttons.

joysticktype=2axis
timed=true
autofire=false
swap34=false
buttonwrap=true

Any help would be appreciated.

To get the d-pad working either set joysticktype=fcs or use DOSBox ECE. The first analog stick should work out of the box anyway, to make two analog stick fully usabel, again, use DOSBox ECE. 😉

Dosbox ECE, I had a look, would be awesome but there's no port for Psp and it's out of my league to even try to do it myself 😀
I'll try this evening with your suggestion and it will hopefully give me some sort of controls.

The psp dosbox port is kinda abandonware so I'm at a loss with it. I do agree that at least the stick (or dpad) should work out of the box, but no arrows emulation work!

Anyway my point is to use a portable console with the version I love most of my childhood game (dos swos), that would be a blast and a forever keep since I'll never grow tired of playing sensible soccer 😀

Thanks for your suggestion.

Oh, the PSP part somehow slipped by me, sorry.
