  Question about xbox 360 controller  (Read 4133 times)

I hooked up all my controllers and output all the component information as well as rumble test.

One thing I find interesting is the 360 controller is considered a gamepad but the Logitech is considered a stick even though both controllers are almost identical. The rumbler doesn't show up for the 360 controller and the triggers don't show up as buttons.

The thing that really got me puzzled is the Y Rotation, X Rotation and the Z Axis for the 360 controller. The controller has two analog sticks but we have three different things to read from the second stick. This is assuming X Axis and Y Axis is for the first analog stick.

Should I just ignore the Z Axis on the 360 controller?

I did some testing and the Z Axis 360 controller doesn't provide any data and it works fine using the ry and rx. odd.

See other threads about the 360 controller, then blame microsoft for yet another API for input devices.

Then write a plugin if you want Smiley
