Thanks for the replies guys
where did you get this game?
My brother got it from ebay some time ago, nearly free xD.
In desperation, I already tried making windows calibrate the X axis in place of the Y and vice versa but to no effect...
As for Xpadder, I had the impression that it was always free and it had ceased development!? I have xpadder here but it can't switch gamepad buttons so it's no use.
Actually, I tried one thing:
With the pad unplugged, I booted Path of Neo, then, ALT + TABbed out to windows, pluged in my gamepad, opened xpadder, assigned the game keys to buttons and waited 5 minutes while the game ALT + TABbed back again.
Now, because this game doesn't like me, the character control by keyboard (and thus, my pad emulating that in xpadder, even with analog) is very jerky. But that's not the bad part. The worse is that the game now, because it's not recognizing a gamepad, doesn't have auto aim and I'm forced to switch to keyboard and mouse whenever a guy with a gun comes up or try to control the mouse with my right stick (which controls horribly).
I hope somedy could understand my gibberish
