Game Controllers and RB
Date: 16.09.05 19:59 (Fri, 16 Sep 2005 19:59:36 +0100)
From: Sam Rowlands
Has anyone had any experience in connecting game controllers and
using them with RB?

I am looking to possibly have a solution for both Mac and Windows,
now I know that there are many pieces of software that the end user
can obtain that will allow them to use their controllers with the
software however I am hoping that there might be some way within rb
so that the end user doesn't have to get a third party piece of
software.

Mahalo & Aloha,

Sam Rowlands

Yep.

Well, no, they do have to have a driver installed for the hardware.
But assuming they have it set up properly, it should work fine with
REALbasic. See the GameInput classes (GameInputManager, etc.).

Best,
