This is strange because with new version I can move left, right etc. and with old I couldn't.
I have Logiteh PSX gamepad.
What is your controller?

Joy buttons are assigned to keyboard buttons.
You can set your own in Options/Key config.
Simply select Fire , press Return and then Joy button you want to assign.

Run game in window mode.
You will see console window.
Does it detect you key press?

yes but the ship didnt fire lol crazy i know... anyway i have found a fix for the issue by rolling back to the version before and using joytokey it seems to work ok.... but there is definately something iffy with the joystick input system on this port of tyrian!!!

If it's detected then you should be able to set up this key in Keyboard/Key Config.
What happens if you go there press Enter on Fire(on keyboard) and then press your Joy Key?
That's how it works for me.
