Several games in the MSXdev'05 competition have
problems with the joystick in openMSX. The following
games have been tested with openMSX 0.5.2 using several
- Caverns of Titan only works in port 2
- Namake's Bridgedome works in port 1 until the
titlescreen. If you input a password on the
titlescreen, joystick port 1 will continue to work
throughout the game. But if you start the game straight
away, joystick in port 1 fails to work and must be
replugged into port 2 for the rest of the game.
These games have been disassembled and no erroneous
code has been found, both using BIOS calls as per the
BIOS specifications. Both have been verified on real
MSX machines to work correctly.
Curiously, using C-BIOS configs there is no problem.
