iOS Game Controller Questions
« on: September 24, 2015, 03:29:16 PM »
I have a couple of questions about the iOS game controller support if anyone knows the answers.

1.a. If I use the playmaker iOS controller package does it conflict with any android controller features? For instance if I import the iOS controller support package and then move over to port the game to android after, do the actions cause any conflict or can I leave them in there?

1.b. Is the package supported in Unity 5?

2. (not playmaker related but I thought I'd ask)If I support the game controllers, I would be only able to support the extended controller because of the twin joysticks. Would apple allow support of extended controllers only compared to supporting standard as well? From what I have seen the standard versions don't have two joysticks and my game requires two.

Thanks!

Hi,

 I don't think so, because the GameController works using the regular Unity Input manager:

 The link below shows you how to map unity inputs to match IOS Game controllers.
