Expected behavior

Holding the stick downward will make character walk down.

Actual behavior

Character only turns himself to face down, doesn't walk.

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Setup input for D-input controller
  2. Link to Dolphin running Four Swords Adventures locally
  3. Test movement in Shadow Battle or Adventure (menus work as expected)

ROM details

Which games are affected by the issue (please state if GBA or GB game):

Which games, if any, are NOT affected by the issue (please state if GBA or GB game):
Tested on Pokemon Ruby

Include screenshots of ROM Information (File > ROM Information):

Option details

Video driver (simple, opengl): OpenGL

Sound driver (directsound, xaudio, openal, SDL): SDL

Build details

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit 1803
VBA-M version: 2.1.1

Hardware details:

If relevant, the joystick you are using and the drivers you are using for it:

  • 8Bitdo SF30 Pro in D-Input mode, default drivers
  • Issue not present on real Xbox One Controller with Xinput
  • Using the 8Bitdo controller in Xinput mode causes a different issue (character doesnt stop walking after letting go of the stick, akin to issue #397)

Instead of ignoring the initial state of axes, which I did to make
triggers work on the 360 controller, set the initial previous value to
the initial state instead.

This fixes the original problem without breaking analog stick movement.

Sadly it didn't fix this issue, but #397 is resolved with the new binary!
