Lately I bought Sega Mega Drive Classics 1 on Get Games, featuring Golden Axe, Shadow Dancer, Crack Down and several others (also available on Steam).
The games work perfectly with my ancient, game-port based gamepad, though since it is a little worn out, I decided to try a much more recent Hama USB based gamepad instead. It works pretty good in Control Panel->Game Controllers options (calibrated, all buttons and analogs working properly), but when I launch the Sega Mega Drive Collection 1 emulator, the controls go crazy, as if the pad was completely uncalibrated. The same happens when I somewhat succeed to run any of the games.
Is the Sega Mega Drive Collection packages known to have issues when used with USB gamepads? Is there a way to fix the problem?
