Force Feedback Joystics.

Post by djbully »

I have searched the forums and cant find anything about this.
I have a Force feedback joystick. I think it would be nice to have FF working, it would add a lot to the feel of the game. IMHO. Dont know how hard this is to do tho. If it's easily done then I think it should be added :D

Currently joystick support is done on a platform by platform basis - this is probably easier to support on SDL than it is on the Mac for example.

That usually means headaches for someone!

Will it be possible to have axis to specify acceleration/deceleration instead of direct speed control? My gamepad has sticks that automatically return to center position (i tried to cut the spring out but no luck - it was a monolythic block with stick mechanics).

Note to self: do more work on the super-duper input manager. :-)

Mmm. I hope you don't mind thor.acedragon.co.uk having gone down - I can get it back up if you need to recover the work.
