Default Controller Configuration Problem - C pad not working

Hi guys, I've recently started playing more of my N64 games on the computer rather than the console and I bought the Mayflash adapter to use my controller with Project64. For the most part, everything is working beautifully but I've run into a glitch with the C buttons.

The controller plugin that works best for me overall is N-Rage Input Plugin V2 2.3c. It's allowed me to use the joystick and other buttons in a smooth way that perfectly emulates my N64. However, none of the games are registering the C buttons with the N-Rage plugin.

To clarify, if I configure the controller for N-Rage, it recognizes and lets me input the C buttons just fine. But once I actually start playing a game, the C buttons just don't register. For example, if I'm playing Doom, the C buttons don't work and if I go to the controller options within the game and try to set one of the C buttons as one of the controls, it doesn't do anything at all, while the joystick and the rest of the buttons do register when pushed.

This does NOT happen with with Jabo's plugin, so it's not the controller itself. Unfortunately, I can't use Jabo's plugin because the overall control isn't great and makes it difficult to play games. N-Rage would be ideal as it emulates the console control perfectly aside from the fact that C buttons don't work within the games themselves, even though I'm able to enter them when configuring the controller.

I know this is a common issue and that it's been addressed on various forums, including this one, but browsing through the other threads I didn't see any real solutions. Does N-Rage just not recognize the C pad or does that particular plugin not work with the Mayflash adapter (even though other plugins do)? Or do I need to tweak the settings somewhere in a way that I'm overlooking? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
