[quote="lucid":3mq3i8wl]I was thinking of adding dx controls later

umm...maybe I guess I could ... add those features and rerelease it?[/quote:3mq3i8wl]

Does that mean support for regular gamepads? If so you are a brilliant man-god glittering in the sun and your awesome power blinds mere mortals like me.

David is still MIA. I think he may be lost in the Australian outback or something.

Other possible reasons:

[*:1ye81wnv]In the hospital with Vegemite poisoning[/*:m:1ye81wnv]
[*:1ye81wnv]Arrested for not being drunk in public (whis is against Australian law)[/*:m:1ye81wnv]

Koala's can be dangerous!

A Koala bear walks into a bar, sits down and orders a sandwich.

The Koala eats the sandwich, gets up, spins around, pulls a pistol out of his pouch, shoots the piano player, and proceeds to walk out of the bar.

The bartender, in shock, shouts to the Koala, "Hey, who do you think you are, you ate my sandwich and shot my piano player, and just where do you think you're going!?"

The Koala replies, "Hey, I'm a Koala. Look it up."

The frustrated bartender pulls out a dictionary from behind the bar and looks up Koala:

The dictionary said "n. a marsupial that eats shoots and leaves."

Great, so not only do you need a separate API, you also need a separate device that does nothing but connect to the controller.

That's good design right there!

Argh, Micro$$$oft!

Really though it is rather annoying. I have a battery pack thing for my wireless controllers with a USB plug that recharges the controller... and if it's out of juice you can plug it directly into the 360 and it'll work.

And even though Windows recognizes my wireless controller if I plug it into my PC with the charger cable, I still can't use my controller without the wireless adapter. It tells me "Oh hey, you plugged in a 360 controller :). Your controller is ready to use :). By the way, CONTROLLER NO WORK, SPEND MORE MONEY." Wonderful.

Yeah, that wireless PC gadget for the 360 is great.
I bought the widget and a wireless 360 controller in a pack, and bought a charger stand that holds 2 controllers and charges them through the 360 at the same time.
So I have 2 wireless 360 controllers charging while I'm using the 3rd, and can use all 3 at the same time on the 360 or the PC.

But we can't expect users to have this setup.

I've said it before, so I'll say it again, I don't think Construct can be taken seriously until it has better support for controllers.
No matter how good a game is, using a keyboard or a 3rd party app like joy2key is not going to cut it with the general public.

How long has David been missing now!? :lol:

Krush.
