I got a wierd error that I am banging my head against the wall and wondering if anyone has any ideas/suggestions.

Setup:  I am using Mac OsX.  I am using Logitech game pads. 
Issue:  Whenever I poll my gamepads, they say that button 8 is being pressed even on the very first iteration of the program (and trust me, i ain't pressing the buttons).  As soon as I do press a button or use the game pad, everything functions normally.  Even if I restart the program, the 8 button works fine (doesn't start off returning 1.0). 

However, if I unplug the controller and then plug it in again the same thing happens.  I am pretty sure that this did not occur originally, which makes me suspect some firmware on the controller got messed, but I was wondering if there is anything I can call in JInput to clear this, or any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

This does sound odd. I'm not sure what we can do I'm afraid. Do you have any othere applications that you can check the controller with and see if it does the same there?.

Yeah, there is a freebie game that I tested it with and its having issues now (I originally tested the controllers in there and they worked fine).  In fact, I am developing a game that has upto 3 controllers, so I have a spare that I haven't used, and its fine, so I can always bring the other two back to the store.

I looked around logitech website and this seems to be a known issue, but I couldn' t find a solution for Macs, so hopefully I hear back from them ...

If anyone has any other info, thanks in advance.

Heres a followup for anyone whos interested ...

If you have windows xp, you can download a program to recalibrate your logitech device. A simple search on the logictech support site using "gamepad calibration" will bring it up.

If you have Mac OSX or Linux, you can return the device to the store or call a long distance number to return the device and get a replacement.  Personally, I was disappointed that logictech wouldn't provide a toll-free number for its support.

If anyone has any gamepad preferences or suggestions, I would like to know, as I don't want to spend more time developing with Logitech products if they are gonna crap out.

Yet another update.

I got two new controllers from the store and now both have the same issue as described before.  I don't know if its coincidence, but the button that starts out as pressed is one that I check for in the early in the game.  But I just poll the buttons and store them in an array, nothing too wierd.

If I uncover anything else, I'll let people know.
