We don't have support for DirectInput action mapping at the moment, mostly because no one has ever asked for such support and it's quite outdated technology. If you find you need it, post an issue on our issue tracker and we'll look into adding it.

Although seriously, Action Mapping was junk technology the day it was released. You're a million times better off replacing it with simple key mapping of your own instead of using a poorly conceived extension to an API you're not supposed to be using anymore for anything except legacy joysticks and gamepads.

Thanks for your quick replies you guys!

Mike, I don't think I'll post an issue about it. Sounds like I should move out of the dark ages anyway and figure out another way to use the joystick.

Promit, do you have any links to good examples of key mapping?

Would either of you suggest using the Joystick class?

Thanks a bunch!
