360 movement

im new to the python scripts (trying to learn) and i was wondering how do make a character object move into different direction using a an analog stick controller like mario 64 360 motion. i tried to use the motion actuator, but all it mannages to do is spin the object.

right now im using an arrow object as an example before using the character object.

Hi you might try the gameengine section of the forum better chances of a response there.
