    BUZZ! Extension wanted

    The following link is to a webpage describing how to use the PS2 BUZZ! game controllers with a PC (using C#).

    http://www.vsj.co.uk/articles/display.asp?id=600

    I'm hoping it might inspire someone to write a driver for MMF since these controllers would be excellent for multi-media games. You can simply plug the BUZZ! controller in and it behaves as a 20 button joystick as far as Windows is concerned, but it would be great to be able to light up the buttons on the controllers as well as read the button states.

    Is anyone up to the challenge? Has someone already done this?

    I posted this elsewhere, but I think it might fit this forum better.

    Don't freak out.

    But there are like 3 extensions which can all make this possible.

    For example the joystick object 2; can handle 16 joysticks each with 128 buttons and 6 axis, it also allows for 'feedback' which is almost certainly how the joysticks lights are controlled.


    If you windows recognizes your 'buzz' controller then this extension will be able to access it easily.

    Thanks for the tip. Where would I find this "Joystick Object 2"?

    I am guessing that by "feedback" you mean that you can send data to the joysticks. This would be needed to light them.

    Re: BUZZ! Extension wanted

    Ok, here's where things stand. The Buzz controller is recognized by windows as "BUZZ". In MMF2 The joystick object does not respond to Buzz button presses, neither does the Joystick2 object.
    However, the MMF2 "Joypad" object does recognize the button presses on the Buzz keypads. Unfortunately it does not have an option to send any data to the device.

    Any other ideas?

    Also, the Joystick 2 object causes a crash when returning from testing a frame when I tried using the Buzz:

    AppName: edrt.exe AppVer: 3.0.248.0 ModName: unknown
    ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 6ce1d5f3

    Hi! I've just downloaded and unzipped the Joystick 2 Object and copied it to the mmf 2 extension folder.
    But somehow the extension doesn't seem to work with my version of mmf 2.
    I tried both of your files. The example file doesn't start neither.
    I use mmf version 2.0 build R248.

    btw: A BUZZ extension sith light support would be great!

    You need to have an up to date DirectX but I am not sure what version to make the Joystick 2 work.

    Is there a place to get the source code for the joystick object? I would be willing to take crack at making the BUZZ! lights work if I could get hold of z33z's code. I wouldn't want to write a new one from scratch.

    Re: BUZZ! Extension wanted

    Is there any way to get the source code for the joypad object? I would like to try to modify it for Buzz controllers. It works fine now for the buttons, but there is no method for making the lights work. That is what I would like to add.

    and wouldn't it be easier just to make extension only for lights? Lighter faster and more stable.
