    Can you use USB Controllers for input?

    Hi, I just downloaded the 30-day trial and I must know something before I attempt to create any games.

    I planned on making an SNES-styled platformer that would have similar physics to a mario game, or whatever.

    I have a USB controller with 12 buttons 2 joysticks and a directional (POV) pad. It is very similar to a SNES pad so thats why I decided to make a platformer...

    How can I use this USB controller for input in my game?

    I took a look at the analog controller object, but I have a feeling this is not what I'm looking for, as it doesn't show anywhere near 12 buttons...

    I'm not certain if this is entirely possible in TGF2 yet... there is an extension in the z33z extension pack for MMF2, but I don't know if TGF2 will have an equivalent. The internal control engine (Ctrl+Y) does allow up to four buttons on a joystick, though.
