Gamepad config.
« on: June 13, 2007, 07:07:14 PM »
Hi All:
I've just purchased a simple game pad (USB) and have had only limited time trying it out. I plugged it in and set up the config. for it through Mach3. It actually worked right away. The only thing is it works to jog the x and y axis, nothing else.
Can someone post a step by step instruction on how to configure the game pad and buttons?
I'd like to be able to use the game pad to move x, y, z in both jog and high speed (shift key from the keyboard). Basically, I'd like to understand how to configure the buttons to make them do whatever I want.
Not a critical thing, just adding more functionality and trying to understand more.
This game pad looks like a gamepad from Playstation. It has about eight buttons plus the direction control.
Thanks
LEW

If you are doing it through keygrabber, this thread might help.

I have tried a few options for a nice controle pannel for Mac3 and found this option-

This thing is alot better than keyboard emultators and wiring a bunch of buttons into a box. Plop a key anyware and record a keysrtoke or sequence and asign to the key. The keys can be located anyware and they maintain the assignment. Print a layout and slip it under the keys and the panel is done
