I recently bought a CD32 and I'm having a few issues with the joypad. The pad I have works great on the audio CD sections [all buttons and all directions] and in most games [Flick, Banshee, Alien Breed TC] but some just baffle me. In specific the Project X SE + UBB game disk does not seem to work. I can chose the game and start it by pressing the red button. But neither of said titles would recognize anything I press past that. On the same CD there's Super Frog demo which works just fine. The same problem with Alien Breed 3D, I cannot enter the security code because it does not recognize presses to the red button. [it is not the port, if I put an SMS pad I get dual button support and the games do recognize the presses so I can get the to start and play] I suspect that some games switch the joypad in Joystick mode and my pad doesn't like it much, I will do further research on that but I wonder if anyone else had any experience with them? I have the schematics http://gerdkautzmann.de/cd32gamepad/cd32gamepad.html and validated my pad matches [with the exception of the inductance on the output] ... also my pad came modded by having pin 2 of the LS165 cut and connected to P6, also pin 11 of the LS125 was cut and connected thru a diode to P6. Finally there was a resistor from J4 [+5V] to pin1 of LS165 and another resistor from GND to pin 11 of LS125 [soldered to the diode now on the pin]. Anyway I modded it back to original spec [removed diode, resistors and reconnected pin2 LS165 and pin11 LS125 to the board] and it works on joypad mode [all buttons] but likely not in stick mode, then I put the mod back [diode and all] and have the same results, works in pad mode [all buttons] not in stick mode. When I say stick mode I mean Project X and UBB and AB3D don't register the red button presses. I validated all connections pin by pin from the cable to the connector and those are not to blame also all traces match up. I do have another joypad arriving in the next 2 or 3 weeks and hopefully it works fine so I can copy its circuit and fix this one, again most of the games seem to work fine but in case someone has a hunch/had to deal with it, please let me know. Any help greatly appreciated.
