That patch works great but now it seems the esc key doesn't exit fceu
anymore. In fact, I can't seem to get it to exit at all without killing it.

When I set up MythGame, I had to patch fceu to get joystick support working
properly.   I've got a usb adapter that allows me to use a PSX gamepad, and
that works using an HID driver.

I used 0.97.5-joystick.patch , but which one you pick obviously will depend
on what version of fceu you're using.

The first time I ran fceu, it prompted me to go through a routine where I
would map the joystick axes and buttons.   The config files are stored in
~/.fceultra.    If you remove fceu.cfg, it will go through the setup again
if something went wrong.
