I have recently received a US patent and PCT on a new mouse that also acts like a joystick and I am currently working on building a prototype. I have sent information about this device to all of the major mouse manufacturers. My problem is that I have been using a cannibalized Logitech joystick as the internal guts of the prototype. I have requested from Logitech their Mouse and Joystick developer kits and have received no reply or at best "I''ll see if I can find the right person". Do these kits exist or is Logitech just afraid of my design? I did submit the device to their New Products Venture Group (NPVG), but have not heard back. Does anyone out there have any information as to locating these kits or can DirectX take the place of these tools? Thank you in advance. Steve http://www.elegantsol.com/

Actually there are two different places on the Logitech site and I applied to both, then called them to no avail. So, what I am asking is: do I really need what is in their kits or are you sure that DirectX can completely replace their kits.

Lastly, I may need some professional help with this. Not a percentage, but in a min - max format based on success.

All Logitech PC products are 100% DirectX and HID compatible....so it is possible to program them on Windows/Mac/Linux using the standard system supplied APIs i.e. no special Logitech SDKs are needed.
