I've been trying to get my Archos Gamepad working with GameKeyboard, and app that allows you to map the Archos Gamepad buttons to a virtual Gamepad.

Anyway, I've reached a problem where, within GameKeyboard, the analogue sticks veer to the top-left after being moved (within the software, the actual sticks go back to the middle as expected). I've contacted the software developer for a fix, but I was wondering if anyone else has been able to use the Archos Gamepad buttons as a virtual gamepad for games that support it, rather than it emulating touch controls? Software such as 'Onlive', where some games demand a gamepad to be used.

The device is rooted/

 

*Also, is there any way to stop the left analog stick from serving as a D--Pad? That screws up the emulation.

I'm an Onlive gamer but I've only played the games that are already designed for touched controls and used the Archos mapping tool, works great. I was thinking of using GameKeyboard for the other games but I've not got around to doing it. Hopefully the developer can fix the app for better mapping.

The first issue has been fixed, but the second still remains?

 

Is there any possible way to make the D-Pad solely control the D-Pad motions? By that, I mean, can I stop the analog from being able to navigate in menus?

Not through the Gamepad. When I'm using emulators on the Gamepad I end up having to map the keys to get around this but that only works for emulators that allow input mapping.
