LE does not handle those input devices directly. You'd need to do that in the language you are using and/or with 3rd party libs.

External libraries have nothing to do with LE, they work in any C++ program. The same way LE is just another external library for C++ as all the other thousands of libraries for C++.


The most popular Joystick libraries for C++ are SDL and OIS:

SDL: http://www.libsdl.org/download.php

OIS: http://sourceforge.net/projects/wgois/files/


I would probably use SDL, since it brings also MMO capable network functions.


If I want only a input library for Joysticks and other controllers and don't need anything else from SDL, then I would use OIS, since it's much smaller and not so bloated as SDL.

For the Blitzmax users I can recommend FryPad.


"..is a free module that provides an abstract control interface that sits between your game logic and the various

control systems (keyboards, joypads etc.) the player wishes to use."
