Wondering about source code...

Post by Xaith »

Hello Long time no see guys....

anyways I was just wondering if it would be possible to get the source code for Xpadder (be it an old version or not). I only want a sample to learn how to code the input detection from controllers and keyboard as I am writing a Game and I thought who better than My old friends at Xpadder! As I am only learnig C++ at the moment it would be greatly appreciated if i could get a sample code that detects Xinput and uses an analog stick and a couple buttons for both Direct input and Xinput... please send an e-mail response to xaith_hyne@<email service removed to protect your inbox dude>!!!

ps: I love the smileys!

Microsofts DirectX SDK should offer much help.

The best (and most enjoyable) way is to hack it yourself 8)

XInput is very simple - the samples and info you need are here at MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... S.85).aspx
A step up from that is the old multimedia joystick API. Works on non-Xbox 360 controllers. A little more detailed but still quite easy: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... S.85).aspx
For force feedback and a headache DirectInput is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... S.85).aspx

All the samples are in C too.

Sweet Thank you Jonathan!!!

So far I am just beginning in the world of Programming, so hacking (as of my current experience) is out of the question. I have been looking all over Google and finding thousands of sites that say buy my book for $50.00 or Sign (at a cost) in to Download! As I have just become a father, Money is a little >Tight< but as soon as I can I will get my first copy of Xpadder (since it was a free program anyways)

and just for the fun of it :D :) :lol: 8) :keen: :mrgreen: :twisted: ;) :| :shifty: :geek: :ugeek: :shock: :( :oops: :noob: :? :o :cry: :x :evil: :?: :idea: hehe
