Summary MESS-specific 06972: a5200: input not working as intended
Description The system inputs tend to be all over, some sets like buckrog (using the softlist) works okish, depending if you use the keyboard or controller (a wireless xbox360 in my case), with the keyboard it works like it should, with the controller it's super sensitive. And others like centepid don't even accept any input except F3 to reset.

Centipede, to my knowledge, requires a Trackball control which the Atari 5200 driver does not seem to have in place or a controller option for it.
As far as normal controls, if you increase the "Digital Speed" options for X/Y in the Analog Controls menu will improve your response. If your controller is too sensitive, adjust that "Sensitivity" option which should improve that.

I will acknowledge as a catch all for Atari 5200/Computer driver input issues. I know there are many and the driver is in great need of repair as it has not has any developer love for a long long time
