The meat of this question is below. Note that he asks what if they DON'T have those browsers installed.
[QUOTE=AarongamerX] I read somewhere that you need either firefox 11 or chrome 18. But what if players don't have those installed.[/QUOTE]
If they don't have Firefox or Chrome (Versions that support GamePad) then they need to update or install them. IE and other browsers do not yet support the GamePad API. I had a talk with Microsoft last week and was told currently they have no plans for the GamePad API as touch is a bigger priority for them currently.
So you are stuck with GamePad API only working in FireFox or Chrome. If your users won't have those, they will have to use keyboard/Mouse or Touchscreen.
The other option is hope that someone like @Ludei or appmobi or phonegap comes up with some type of way to expose the OS GamePad support to your game, or find a library that can be used to add GamePad support if there are any out there.BluePhaze2013-04-16 01:15:31
