    Default Xe-1 Ap Controller - right slider is reversed?

    I recently acquired an Xe-1 Ap controller as described here: https://segaretro.org/XE-1_AP

    It seems to be working well, with one strange problem: the right slider is reversed. I've done some searching, and there doesn't seem to be much documentation on this controller, so I was hoping someone here has some insight, or at least can confirm that this is an anomaly.

    Here's an example, when I play Super Monaco GP, if I tilt the slider left, the car goes right. In Afterburner 32X, if I move the slider up, the plane shows down. In the test menu for Afterburner, moving the slider all the way up gives a value of 00, and all the way down gives a value of FF, which seems backwards to me.

    Yes, I know I can rotate the analog slider, but, it doesn't offer 360 degrees of motion. The switch on the back also doesn't fix the issue. Would adjusting the potentiometers fix it?

    I'm thinking it was probably assembled wrong, but wanted to verify on here before trying to take it apart.

    Rotate it back the right way. It rotates.

    EDIT: OK I saw you tried that. Your stick may be messed up.

    If I get chance, I'll check mine.

    A lot of people call this controller "Big Mac Jackson."

    I should hopefully be able to check this out this week, I've had a tidy up so things are a bit more accessible.
