Hi all.

The current JInput release has no joystick support for OSX?  FWIW my joystick is working fine with the old release (the one with Axis class).  What is the status on this?

Also, not to to be a whiner, but it took me about 60 minutes of trial and error to figure out where the *actual* release files for JInput were located.  The front page on is misleading since under "project status" it seems to imply that the only files available are the (stale) nightly builds or CVS.  A more prominent link to downloads and api documentation (and maybe remove the links to the old stuff) would probably help a lot for those not already familiar with the project.

I am using (going by  jinput Version.version ) 1.0.0-b.01.  I am using the files:
these were from:

Most things work for me, but I was wondering if these are the most uptodate MacOSX files?
When I looked at the Files section of the JInput site, there seemed to be controller.jar and and a file under MacOSX, but the note says that only the keyboard is working?

When I do use JInput, I see alot of output, which I worry is slowing down my program.  Can this output be controlled by a -D flag?

Here is a sample of the Debug Output, is this coming from the JInput jar?
Found device type [IOHIDKeyboardDevice]

So far I have been pretty happy with JInput, I've gotten a couple logictech controllers hooked and have been having a blast.  Of couse, its wierd because the controllers say the controlpads are normalized, but they return values of 1,128,255 (left, neutral, right).  Am I misunderstanding the Javadocs for isNormalized?

Normalised should indeed be -1,0,+1. I have no mac, and that is no-one doing mac support for JInput currently (unfortunatly our dev had more important things). If you wish to get the source and fix it, and submit the patch I'm more than happy to commit it to CVS.

Unless I win the lottery (which I don't play), I can't afford a mac, otherwise I'd do it myself Smiley
