The Web Start version chrashed the VM when I went to select the controller... I'm guessing the JInput plugin wasn't quite right with the Web Start install.
Erg, all I can say is it works happily for me. When you say crashed, was it a Java crash or a Windows crash. I've had it crashing windows now and again but just running webstart again seems to clear it up.
The Zip version worked fine (ran update first and noticed it grabbed new files - only seconds after I got the Zip. Were you in the process of updating things maybe?
Fraid not, its a limitation of my updating system. Since it kinda morphs the webstart install into the zip install the native libraries get a bit screwed up and end up getting replaced straight away. I'll fix it some day
Teh controller worked fine to play the game - Setup of the buttons was a bit strange, I seemed to need to click the mouse on the button GUI twice for it to take my button press from the controller.
Coo, thats a new one.. when you clicked once did the label appear at the top of the table saying press the button.. ? I'll have a look at this tonight. I'm glad it worked in game
No rumbler activity at all. Do you know where I can get a Windows program that definately works with rumblers? It may just be that this controllers rumblers are not supported on windows. Do you typically need custom drivers for rumbler support? It appeared that Windows jsut recognised this thing as a HID and new what to do. Perhpas it is using generic drivers that don't do force feedback?
The rumbler should be very soft when you push blocks around. However, it could be a driver thing. I *thought* that directx drivers support rumblers by default but maybe not. I'll add some debug tonight to dump out what rumblers JInput thinks it found.
EDIT: Coo, 1000 posts
