2d Game Creation > Raw Input API

Posted 05 December 2013

A lot of research went into using Raw Input API on a gamepad.
I am using a Logitech Dual Action usb gamepad.
This is where I got the best example. But he obviously changed part of the code cause it didn't work.

So after more research and tweeking, got it to work. Right now it is 4 buttons, two analog s...

So my custom GUI uses an inherited 'GUIObject.hpp'. They are then kept in a std::Vector of pointers. I have a ComponentManager that handles different screens/frames (however you want to look at it), the ComponentGui (cGui), and Component2d (c2d). Both cGui and c2d are 2d components, but the latter is going to handle the 2d objects and animations.
