I have mapped my joystick ok with roms games no problem
but when trying to start a cassette game by pressing the button assigned to the space bar does not work for my game controller,
if I press the keyboard space bar
I can continue playing well with the game controller and the button space works
when playing a new game again I need to press space on the keyboard

Does anyone know the solution to this problem?
Thank you
sorry for my english use translator

So, indeed, that game can't be started with joystick. It requires you to press 'space' as it says in the title screen.
I guess your mapping to the space bar is not correct. Possibly it works on other games due to having it act as an MSX joystick button?

Which other games give these problems?

sorry for my delay I could not answer before
thanks for answering,
As you say, I think it's in a number of cases,
for the moment in the game the wall
from the Spanish company erbe software
I have tried a few because I do not have time and they work well
I thought that changing the keymatrix code row could solve the problem of this game
another question
Can you have a gamepad configuration per game? and to recognize it automatically?
thank you very much really
and sorry because I use google translator
