Someone could please test if the detection works fine on an original 6-button joypad when the buttons B+Z are pressed simultaneously?

You need an unmodded MegaDrive controller connected to the very simple JoyMega adapter.

Sorry, I couldn't understand what exactly do you want to know if it's possible on MSX...

@KdL

The main problem is that there´s no way to autodetect this mod, and JoyTest is based on the same library I use for games (in fact, it was created as a sample code).

I plan to release those libraries on the end of the year, so any programmer can use it.
