New Apple controller support

Hello all, hope your having a great day.

Havent posted in a while guys but wondered about controller implementation now that ios supports it, is it just the same as how it currently work or are there some other things we need to do for it to work on ios with ps4 and xbox pads etc?

    I don’t think Gamesalad has ever supported controllers on iOS (someone correct me if i am wrong). There are several older post on this forum about iOS and controllers.

    Yah. We're using an open source library for our joystick support that one of our former devs created. At the time he didn't have iOS controller support since it's kind of a separate beast from how other stuff works. I'll take a look to see if there's an update we can throw in.

    I am only commenting as the main contributor of the open source controller lib. The the open source lib is now feature complete for iOS, and Mac MFI but i am still fixing bugs.
    I am NOT speaking for Gamesalad and have NO control over what Gamesalad does.

    Hmm, very nice! Would be awesome to have the updated lib in GS if they can integrate it.

    Will tag @adent42 in here in case he didn't spot the thread, as I'd like to help him with his world record attempt at most things simultaneously on one person's plate.

    I have some test build of my controller test app (Game Controller Information) (Not Gamesalad) for iOS using the new controller lib. If any one once to help test so I can finalize the open source controller lib send me a message and I will add you to my test flight for the build. (Other platform test app with be available soon)
