I am currently testing the hat part of the Wingman Extreme analog joystick.
This is being tested this under Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.
I have loaded the following modules for joystick support: joydev, gameport,ns558,analog.
The analog module, I gave the parameter "map=fcs" as the Wingman Extreme is compatible with the Thrustmaster FCS joystick protocol.
dmesg reports "input: Analog 2-axis 4-button 1-hat FCS joystick as /devices/pnp0/00:0e/gameport0/input/input7" which is correct to the physical configuration of the joystick.
I have calibrated using jscal and tested after using jstest - axis, buttons and hat are reported working correctly by jstest.
In dosbox, i start up the keyboard mapper (ctrl-f1) and test the hat which also seems to work properly.
Within Descent I, I configure the joystick to type "Thrustmaster FCS & Wingman Extreme" and calibrate. If I go into the customise section of the game, everything seems to be recognized except the hat. If I try to change one of the hat buttons in the game, the game does not respond when using the hat. I have also tried actually playing the game itself with default joystick settings, but again everything works except the hat.
