Recently I played an excellent, 1994 now-freeware fighting game, One Must Fall 2097. The game works wonderfully under DOSBox, with fully supported sound and gamepad control, which I personally prefer and used till now.
I completed the arcade mode and decided to try the tournament mode, which I remember was pretty awesome. Unfortunately, when I enter the character creation screen, the cursor (controlled by gamepad) seems to go mad, behaves as it would be completely uncalibrated and keeps pushing down-right direction, thus making it impossible to navigate through tournament mode menus. The problem does not occur when I choose to use keyboard controls.
Are there any known issues connected with DOSBox support for gamepads? Are any walkarounds available?
If it's purely a game-related problem, is there any patch or fix for OMF2097 gamepad support?
I use a relatively old, game-port based gamepad, which never caused me any trouble.
