Analog control stuck up + left in Crash Bandicoot 3

So I scoured the internet for a solution to this and couldn’t find one.
I compiled the latest release too and it didn't help. (92936)

I'm having a problem in crash bandicoot 3.
When analog is enabled I lose control and the character will only walk up and slightly left.

Some other people have had a similar issue in the past, but a solution was never posted.

Crash 3 is one of the only 3 games I play on PCSXR because I grew up with them, so I'd really love to get this working.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for reading.

EDIT: Oh also I'm running Lubuntu 14.04 not windows.

Hello AzaIndustries,

I don't know if this will help but you try and use qjoypad and configure the buttons to what pcsxr has them configured.

The controls actually work fine in digital mode.
When I switch to analog it no longer works properly even though I'm still using the same stick that works fine in digital mode and uses the same assignments in setup.

I find the game frustrating without analog movement.
My current setup works fine in Spyro and Crash Bandicoot 2 with analog turned on.
EPSXE works too but I don't like using it.
But I need some of the newer features in the current version.

Thanks though.

OMG I'm so happy.

I found a solution, I'm using this game-pad plugin instead of the default one:

And analog works perfectly now.

WIth PS1 emulators, it is always best to use Pokopom. It is the best PS1 input plugin.

Sorry I didn't tell you that sooner, I thought I posted a link to Pokopom in this thread, but apparently I didn't.
