Challenge - ZX Next game pad

Postby Thompson » Thu Dec 03, 2020 10:04 pm

As our Next has USB input, is it possible to write a system driver for modern game pad like Xbox One/PS4 for emulation digital joystick like Kempston or in general, any digital input device?

An xbox controller has already been tested but there is no means for the Next hardware to automatically collect that information from the pi yet. Instead the information has been sent over the uart but that requires special sw to work within games which is not what you want.
