8way joysticks have 4 micro switches, if you moved the stick diagonal right it would push two of these switches to register you wanted to move in a diagonal direction. Was that your problem or am I missing the point?:unsure

My suggestion is obvious, but you've already made your purchase so it is of no use to you now..........
