USB Game Controllers?

Post by richardmac » Mon May 14, 2018 12:39 am

Work goes very well on my proof of concept Galaga-type game. Basically I have everything working, including randomized attack patterns for my 8 baddies. I'm super happy with the results so far!

So my next thought was to try to get my game working with my usb game controller. It's an older controller, made by Game Elements, and it has a lot of buttons and USB. It works great with OpenEmu on my Mac (OS 10.13.) Searching through the forums here and also Google, basically the advice was to use rawKeyDown to trap for the buttons on the controller. Nothing registers. Nothing. I downloaded some old stacks like "PADDER" but they all used rawKeyDown. Doesn't work.

Sooooo anyone got any thoughts on this? I read there used to be some type of plugin that probably no longer works. I'm wondering about appleEvents, maybe? Any thoughts?
