PS3 Controller is sending wrong info to half of my wine games, and this is due to the axis wrong position. So, in certain games the controller sends a left or a up message, so the menus are impossible to navigate and the camera, obviously, just spins around.
Things I noticed and tried:
- Different wine versions give different results. So for some games, the glorious eggroll 5.9 fixes the issue. For other games, it doesn’t;
- I reinstalled the whole OS from scratch with a different desktop env (I’m now on KDE). The problem persisted with the same games;
- I ran the command jstest /dev/input/js1 and noticed that the L and R triggers have a value of -32767 on idle, so I guess this might be the problem? I have no clue on how to edit the gamepad configurations… I can’t find this directory /dev/input, I think I’m missing something here but the Arch Wiki is just all over the place and I’m bad at it.
I wish there was a way to override the default config for certain games. But really the best would be to fix this by default… I have this problem for months and it’s kind of infuriating because these games worked great before and all of a sudden started to make my gaming life kind of miserable, and reinstalling the whole OS didn’t pay off at all.
Thanks for any help!
