Eh? Who? What? ... Me?

I've got a 360 controller here - and the good news is that it works perfectly.

I've also got a Saitek controller here - a pretty standard looking wired USB gamepad with two analogue sticks etc. etc. The problem is the getRXAxisValue()/getRYAxisValue() methods don't work, when really I'd expect them to work. The hack I'm using to cope with it looks like this:
1  
2  
   float fireXaxis = Game.getControllerType() == ControllerType.XBOX360 ? c.getRXAxisValue() : c.getAxisValue(2);
   float fireYaxis = Game.getControllerType() == ControllerType.XBOX360 ? c.getRYAxisValue() : c.getAxisValue(3);

where I detect the controller type by checking the axis names with the following lame hackery:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
   Set<String> axes = new HashSet<String>();
   for (int i = 0; i < controller.getAxisCount(); i ++) {
      axes.add(controller.getAxisName(i).toLowerCase());
   }
   if (axes.contains("y axis") && axes.contains("x axis") && axes.contains("y rotation") && axes.contains("x rotation")) {
      controllerType = ControllerType.XBOX360;
   } else {
      controllerType = ControllerType.GENERIC;
   }


This all looks like hax to me. Can I do this better?

What happens when you run the JInput controller text test or controller read test?, it should show you what the device name and what axis it thinks it has.
