Aside from DXInput, what other options are there for use in game programming. I''m using OpenGL for the graphics which is why I need a suitable alternative to DirectX for the input library. Thanks.

Just because you''re using OpenGL doesn''t mean you can''t use DirectInput from DirectX. Granted your program will now require DirectX to be installed in order for it to run... Anyway, I do this with my own stuff.

Good point Expendable; I forgot about that. However, the likes of SDL and ClanLib provide a simpler interface to input mechanisms for those inclined.
