Former SysOp of the Griffin's Lair BBS / West L.A. Atari User's Group BBS / Strange World BBS. Began by programming a BBS system on the Atari 800 (BASIC/Assembly), then later on the Atari ST (GFA BASIC), and eventually rewrote it for DOS (80286) in ANSI C.
Atari 400, 800, 1200XL, 600XL, 800XL, 65XE, 130XE: Archon, Ultima ]I[: Exodus, M.U.L.E., Return of Heracles, Spelunker, Seven Cities of Gold, Realm of Impossibility, Jumpman, Bruce Lee, Rescue on Fractalus...
Gamepads then have to map their axes to weird inputs like "rudder Z." This doesn't matter in games and emulators that remap axes, it's only an issue for ones that hardcode the assignments.
I don't recommend using the built-in Windows calibration for modern gamepads. It's more meant from the old school days where controllers needed center calibration because they could vary (think 5200 style). For a console gamepad, just use the dead zone setting in Altirra under Input, Input Setup.
Best joystick of the type ever. It's such a shame that Mad Catz is no more.
In the spirit of sharing -- though I should figure out a way to do so elsewhere -- here are a few of my favorite personal train photos. Completely off topic I know...but hopefully some folks who see these will like them. Four shots of The Durango & Silverton vintage RR and one pic of an old narrow gauge Pike's Peak steam engine.
I love riding the Durango-Silverton, summer or winter. Some great scenery along the Animas.
