you need to edit the WinVICE.txt script for your USB connected joystick settings.
The error could be, you only have 1 joystick connected so value "5" is too much for you.

-joydev1 <number>
-joydev2 <number>

0: None, 1: Numpad, 2: Keyset 1, 3: Keyset 2, 4: Joystick 1, 5: joystick 2

search for all lines containing text "joydev"
change -joydev2 value to 0 or 1

-joydev2 0

it will be nice if a new version of gamebase includes a commented version of WinVICE.txt with such infos as this
