N64 Control,

March 10, 2007 | 11:44 pm

Hi everyone,

i’m just about to start building a new patch for another Uni assignment but I want to use a games controller.Ive read another post about the PS2 pad being used with a Kiky adaptor, and I think I have bought the equivalent for N64.

I was wondering if anyone has tried a N64 pad, and if it is the same principle as using a PS2. i’m using an N64 pad as I like them more, in my opinion they are one of the best designed pads! although I would love to have a go of the Wii control.

So I was wondering are these games controllers straight forward to be recognised by max and will I be able to use the Analogue joystick?

Cheers in advance

Chris

Ps forgot to ask, would it be possible for the pad to recieve a message back from Max? Ie a bang to trigger a rumble pack?

Apologies if these are all stupid questions, but I’ve not tried this before, and thought this would be the best place to get some answers.

Cheers,

Chris

Cheerz Jamez,

that does look like what I need, the only problem is that the External is for win xp i’m on Osx D’oh! So I will have to keep looking

Thanks anyway :)

I’ve read about using the "hi" object does anyone know if this works?

Cheers

Hello the Hi object is quite cool, but I experienced several crashes
without an apparent logical situation.
In fact sometimes the patch that I use for an external joy-pad is
stable even if I have lots of things going on, wether sometimes, if I
am just trying some settings, it makes the whole Max/MSP environment
crash.

Hi works fine in OS X,
there are known problems for Windows, that was the reason for the
creation of the joystick external for Win by the way…

Well, I didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag before I posted the
article. Hope it helps.

Cheers,

greatly appreciated, thanks Andrew.

it was exactly what I trying to discover about using controllers in Max and then next minute theres a handy tutorial on the front page,

the only thing is that my lecturer will probably think I am only doing this now, because I was on here checking the front page! lol,
