I keep finding myself refering to these three threads, so I'm going to place them here and hope that some mod will mark this topic as sticky.

Hi
 There are 3 threads that will probably be of interest on these boards.

This one deals with the layout of the jars and native libraries if you are just distributing the files.
This one deals with the properties that jinput has that allow you to override where it looks for the plugin jars and native libs. And this one deals with jinput with webstart.

How about doing some cut & paste to get the good bits into the Wiki?

Is there an issue with the Forum?  Everytime I try to visit these links I get a message that the Forum is down for maintenance.  I've been trying for days ...

Basically I would like to know what the most current version of JInput is.  I am confuzzled by https://jinput.dev.java.net/.  It shows that the core of JInput is a jar called controller.  Shouldn't there me a JInput.jar?

Thanks

Hi

If you look in the Documents and files sections at jinput.dev.java.net and grab the latest release for your OS and it should all be fine. In theory.

Thanks, I will try out the latest for MacOSX.  I don't want to make a firm commitment, because I would feel bad if I promised something I couldn't deliver, but I would love to see MacOSX dev go forward (a previous post made it sound like the current version of JInput only supports mice and keyboards for OSX), including a debug on/off switch or even a seperate download.

Hi

Unfortunatly I have no way of checking, but I believe that it works with at least some gamepads/joysticks.

Maybe I should try what lwjgl did and see if I can get enough donations to get an ibook Smiley

Well, if you ever think of getting something cheap, you might consider the mac mini (used or new, new its only $500 and I am sure you have nothing better to spend $500 on Smiley ).  Basically the mini is just the cpu.  No mouse, no keyboard, no monitor. 

Ok, you may label me a dumbass now.  I was just looking at the downloads and i didn't notice that one was August 2003 and the other Jun 2005.  I just noticed the months before.  Grrrr.

Anyway, the latest download for MacOSX, works pretty good for me on OSX 10.3, java 1.4.2, and using logitech hardware.

I only have two issues (which are posted elsewhere):
1)  The order of the two controllers is not always consistant.
2)  There is a lot of debug, which if I pipe to /dev/null I hope I don't have to worry about.  I am concerned that all those io calls will slow down my app when its executing. 

I would be will to take a stab at either of these two issues, just not sure where to start.

The links are broken. I was wondering if these links would answer my questions.

I probably ought to un sticky this thread as it's out of date. The best thread for getting started is this one.

If you start deploying to linux you'll also come across the file permission issue.
