I have the Steam release of X-Wing and am attempting to use DOSBox-X with it instead of the included DOSBox 0.74 release for among other things, MT-32 support. The problem is that for some reason only the X axis of my joystick/controller works ingame.
I've tried every 'joysticktype', turning 'timed' on and off and all sorts of messing around with the axis bindings but I just can't seem to get the game to recognize the Y axis. The weirdest part is that if I check the mapper tool or the joystick testing utilities from this thread the Y axis appears to be recognized just fine. It also works without issue ingame with DOSBox classic.
Edit: I learned about the existence of DOSBox Staging from this thread and was able to get the game running with MT-32 music and working joystick support, so that solves my problem. It's still weird that DOSBox-X has this issue though.
