    So I’ve got everything working fine.

    I have my set psx_delay to 25. I’ve tried other values and it would cause the gamepad to twitch out in the Emulation Station menus.

    No matter what I do, the jstest always reads the left analog stick flickering UP+LEFT. This causes the characters to jump and aim UP+LEFT in Contra (NES) but it does not do it in any other game (sometimes in NeoGeo, Metal Slug).

    I have a PSX controller with the analog sticks and without, it doesn’t make a difference which one is plugged in, although sometimes I have to press the ANALOG button (on) so it will read the controller, and sometimes it doesn’t.

    Sometimes the controllers work normally and sometimes they don’t. I really have no idea what is going on.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This is tested on RetroPie 2.6 and Retropie 3.0 Beta 4. Same issues.

    I’ve checked my wiring countless times.
