Common deadzones and axis map for Xbox 360 and PS3 controller
« on: November 11, 2014, 12:03:55 am »
Hello all,

I need to add joystick support in my game and I know that joystick manufacturers handle controllers very differently. I don't have a PS3 and Xbox 360 joystick to test with.

Can anyone tell me what axis is mapped to each part of the controllers and what buttons are which?
Also what the expected deadzone is for these.

There isn't a deadzone. If you want one you have to do it yourself.
