Xbox 360 Controller button/stick mapping
« on: August 30, 2013, 08:42:01 pm »
Does anyone happen to have a list of which buttons and sticks on the 360 controller correspond to which buttons/axes in SFML?

Why don't you just test it?

I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Reinvent what? ???

Plug your controller, press each button/move each axis and see how they map to the SFML identifiers. It's a 2 minutes task.

...and post the results here, to prevent future users from reinventing the wheel :D

By the way, a search engine/forum search yields some related results:

You could search more and try to contact some of the involved people to ask them for a mapping. But Laurent might be right here, testing it is probably faster...

well, for testing I have to write and app and press buttons, but since I'm the first I'll do it later and post the results here :P

Yeah, but it has received a lower priority now. Was megalazy and just implemented keyboard + mouse control. Will come back too it soon(ish).

No you don't. I wrote one :)

I started a thread about it here as I figured it'd probably be useful to other folks.

Maybe we should start another thread that is a listing of button mappings for OS-controller combos (the 360 buttons are not all the same on Mac and Windows for example).
