Gamepad support

Hi Mnemonic,

Do you think it could be possible to include gamepad support for direct control? I think it would be very useful for games ala Resident Evil.

Could be a good addition to WME. Don't know if it's widely apparent but the XBox360 wired controller is XP and Vista compatible (it has a USB connection). Looks like it's on the way to becoming the standard controller for PC gamers. Even though I don't have an XBox I got one of its controllers and it works great. It's not that expensive either.

Microsoft have an XP driver for the controller downloadable from their site. I had some issues with it on some games but I haven't checked back in a while and I'm sure there will be regular updates as soon as Vista comes along.

I'm currently using an alternative driver called XBCD (http://www.redcl0ud.com/xbcd.html).

There is even a way to convert existing games for use with any controller using a tool called ControlMK (http://www.redcl0ud.com/controlmk/

It's a possibility for the future, not my priority right now, though. It might be a nice plugin application, I think :)
