Does this affect all machines in c64.c? Your report is not clear.

It is specific to the NTSC C64 "Mess.exe c64". It is not for all games.

Are both joysticks "plugged in"? By default, only one joystick (joy2) is activated.
Use -joy1 joy in your command-line and launch, for example:

mess64 c64 -joy1 joy -flop (whatever game) 
 and see if that works, please.

Yes, both joysticks are mapped.

Tested PAL too - same issue. Again, for this game only same exact issue.

My command line for launching game:

mess.exe c64p -joy1 joy -joy2 joy -flop1 "D:\RNI\C64 Disk Images\F\friday_the_13th\friday_the_13th.d64"
mess.exe c64 -joy1 joy -joy2 joy -flop1 "D:\RNI\C64 Disk Images\F\friday_the_13th\friday_the_13th.d64"

Both joysticks are mapped and work fine for many other games.

ok. I'll attempt to find some valid images and test. Likely will be consolidating these 3 bugs into one, since there is a singular issue to report.

Here's the issue in a nutshell:

Real hardware & (Win)Vice:
Port #1 - Up = Left & Button = Up
Port #2 - Controls player properly

P1 Controls [=Slot Joy 1] - Up = Left & Button = Up
P2 Controls [=Slot Joy 2] - Not responding

Summary: "P2 Controls [=Slot Joy2]" is broken, not connected/hooked up, missing functionality.
