How do I use the gamepad joysticks to control an object vel?

  • I want to make a platform game with suport to gamepad.

    But, how can I control the character speed with joysticks?

    Something like... if I put the joystick just a little bit to the right, the char move slowly.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Zathan, did you read and understand the manual entry? https://www.scirra.com/manual/143/gamepad

    Yup.. but what I want is not explained. I guess..

    As I said, "if I put the joystick just a little bit to the right, the char move slowly" to this direction.

    And, of course, the keyboard still works at the same time if the player prefers it.

  • Here's a quick sample.

    No but you can see you have an axis with values from 0-100 depending on how far you move the joystick, so.. sounds like a relative speed value, with some basic maths.

  • I also searched the forums for the same thing you're asking about, but couldn't find anything. Here's the solution I came up with...I doubt it's the best way to do this, but if you only need a few speeds (like sneak, walk, and run), this should work.

    (edit) the last command was when I started on the move left commands, it's not finished. The first three blocks are for right analog movement.
