Problems With Dial/paddle Joystick : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

We built a paddle controller specifically for arkanoid type games. Using Win98, DirectX6 seems to tell us that the controller works fine - using standard DirectX test in Control Panel. This implies the contstruction should be ok.

When we run any dos version of MAME, eg. MAME36B5 the paddle control seems to be acting like a digital controller rather than an analog. i.e. from a reference point roughly in the centre, if we move the paddle slightly to the left, then the arkanoid paddle starts moving continually to the left until it hits the edge (same goes for the right). The buttons seem to work ok.

Can anyone suggest what is wrong here?

Thanks, Tim
