Something like this?

Left click to shoot to mouse point,
Right click to shoot to screen centre.

You could also add in some fancy stuff like particle effects that move from the laser origin to the mouse co-ords/screen centre.

Hi @imothep85

I haven't used the joypad plugin, but I would guess that you could use:

Axis(Gamepad, Index)

...to move an invisible object on the screen, and then use the co-ordinates of that object in place of the mouse (x,y).
