i'd like to gather information on currently used JInput Gamepads and Joysticks to better support them with my applications.
I've prepared a Webstart application which collects the required data and writes it to a XML file. This file can then be mailed to me at the mail address displayed in the user interface of the application.
Please try out the following JNLP file and mail me your results:http://188.8.131.52/applications/testjinput/CollectControllers.jnlp
I've tested it on Windows XP, Vista, Ubuntu 8.10 and Mac OS X 10.4.11 as i'm loading those JInput libraries as well.
Connect all Gamepads (Sticks) before running the software. Also, please test on all your OSes.
Required is a Java runtime v1.5
+, especially for Mac OS X 10.4.x users.
I'll be presenting the results at my website later so that other developers can profit. The link will follow.
Cheers for any feedback!
