Joypad Extension

If anyone's interested I've just released a Joypad Extension for WebWorks (Cordova port next)

 

Its currently in https://github.com/peardox/bb10webworks-ext/tree/master/joypad

 

This will shortly be moved into the main BB WebWorks Extensions github repo (this is my development copy)

 

You'll need a Joypad to use it of course

 

[Erik - is the compo still running so the WW gang can get some dev kit?]

Re: Joypad Extension

I compiled it against 10.1.0.4211

 

Your WW2 Q - not quite yet but sometime this week

 

WW2 is Cordova based, this will be my first Cordova port.

 

Thankfully I work closely with the guys who develop the Cordova stuff so have lots of help at hand if anything goes not as expected.

 

Gimme til end of the week and we'll have a WW2 versionj to play with as well...

Re: Joypad Extension

The gamepad offer is officially running until February 28th, so plenty of time to get some WebWorks representation in the Gamepad Ready category of BlackBerry World.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: This Program applies to gaming apps which are posted in BlackBerry World in the Game Category ("App"). To be eligible for a Reward, upgrade your gaming App so that it is Gamepad enabled. The first 250 Vendors to submit their Gamepad enabled App in "draft" or "for review" form to BlackBerry World will be eligible for a Category 1 Reward. Once your Gamepad enabled App has been approved in BlackBerry World, you will be eligible to receive a Category 2 Reward.

 

Check out the full T&Cs here:

https://developer.blackberry.com/gamepadoffer/

 

Big thank you, Peardox, for all your efforts to bring this to the community.

Re: Joypad Extension

Thanks for the update Erik

 

OK Guys - this just became a lot easier

 

You need my extension and something that uses it

 

As long as you add the permission use_gamepad (see my readme) to your app you qualify

 

BB will send you a Moga and SteelSeries controller while they have stock left

 

There's also a $75k marketing budget prize for one of us / them (Cascades crowd)

 

I would strongly urge Built For Blackberry compliance as that way you get on two lists - they're also doing a Built For Joypads soon (Feb I guess)

Re: Joypad Extension

I updated the extension to almost release (I've got a quirk on the SteelSeries) I wanna look at before final

 

The new demo is the final and works (almost) as desired

 

I would appreciate any feedback if anyone compiles the new demo up

 

Ta guys

Re: Joypad Extension

Gotta restart Cordy

 

PC died so I'm behind schedule

 

TimW etc are fully with me on this so I have all the technical info I need

 

Only got back online today and have paying work that needs doing for a few days (sorry - can't be 100% charity)
