No. They use whatever cheap version they find at the computer shop or their old gamepad from 5 years ago.
Perhaps but I've seen statistics from 2009 that suggests otherwise. It doesn't matter though, I am not saying there shouldn't be support for them ... it's a matter of priority. There are plenty of things that should be improved or added first, or at least the plugin should be handled by someone externally so that Ashley/David can focus on bigger things!
On a side note, I am going to say nothing of joysticks
6fix - I must have misunderstood you then. I thought you meant that as though C2 is supposed to not be meant as mainly a 2D program. Sorry about that.
No problem! Sorry if I wasn't clear enough. I don't even want a fully 3D construct. I hope we never lose 2D, on any platform.
