How many programs use it since 30 years? Made first a new developpement. Use 2 buttons for main features.
The 3rd button must be optional or customisable. If the user don't have it, he can use a keyboard key as alternative.
Yes, I think 3 programs all AMX use the third button.

Perhaps 10 use the 2nd joystick button (on CPC), most GX carts use 2 ?

About a few thousand games use 1 joystick button.

I always use the 2nd button where possible. And the 3rd button will be used in symbos.

Classic soft which lets you use the 3rd button:

-Ikari Warriors: Toggle key cannot be defined at Fire 2, but yes at Fire 3
-Golden Axe: Magic key cannot be defined at Fire 2, but yes at Fire 3
-North & South: You can define Select and Quit at Fire 2 and Fire 3 when using joystick (Fire1 is displayed as Joy Fire2, Fire 2 as Joy Fire1 and Fire3 as Spare... xD )
-Turbo Girl: Fire 3 can be defined as pause
-And many more, mora than we think, benefits from the Fire3 :)

Not only Fire 3 is used by AMX soft, fortunately there is more!! :)
 
And also you have SyX patched Renegade to use the 3 buttons!!! :)

Final question: What is the best USB controller/joystick that works with Winape?  Thanks in advance.
I have read out an XBox 360 driver for 7.  This works very nicely, but prefer remapped keys...

Try this version...


Numlock = Off - Normal CPC input.
Numlock = On - Joystick mapped for large keyboard or notebook.
                        Some Pinball keys remapped for PC keyboard.
                        Odd key like R and ESC so addons do not seem to be frozen.


- This version fixes an issue with Tubaruba! :(
