ANE for Gamepads/Joysticks

I am wondering is there any way to use gamepads using Adobe AIR for Blackberry OS 10?


Adobe added support for gamepads in Adobe AIR 3.7,but it only works for Android 4.1.

I hope somebody will convert Blackberry Gamepad API into ANE. There are already extensions for Xperia Play and Windows.

Not that I'm aware of. We do have native gamepad support so someone will need to write an ANE for this to be possible.

I am trying right now to develop ANE to call native gamepad API. If it will be successful I will publish the code on BlackBerry github.

Has anyone succeeded in building an ANE for Gamepad support?
