Hello everyone!
I've been testing the gamepad object and it worked fine with my xbox 360 controller, but i need to know if it also works with a playstation controller. Does anyone knows the answer?
Thanks since now! :)

From the Gamepad manual entry:

The Playstation 3 controller does not typically work without installing third party drivers since it is not officially supported. For this reason it is recommended to test with Google Chrome on Windows with an XBox 360 controller, and always support an alternative input method such as Keyboard input.

So you can get it to work, but it doesn't necessarily work out of the box like the Xbox 360 controller.

I don't have a PS controller to test with currently, so I sent an alpha build of my game to a friend and he installed the 3rd party plugins for his PS controller; the system recognized it but it didn't work at all in the game.

Is there anything we are supposed to do in C2? or is it supposed to be compatible?

Anyone else having this issue?

@Silverforce do you by any chance support PS controllers in your games? or is it all Microsoft compatible controllers?

I've only tested Xbox controller because I too thought that was what the default compatibility is for. :)
