Joystick support?

How do I add support for joysticks, gamepads, and steering wheel/pedal sets to games that I create using the Blender 3D Game Engine?

There’s a nice tool called “search this forum”…

Regarding joysticks in Blender, you have two choices:

  1. joystick sensor (no python code needed): supports one controller
  2. pygame (requires python): supports multiple controllers, e.g. steering wheel + pedals

pygame and forum search, you can use gamepad, joystick joypad, and maybe other kind of midi elements

You will of course find my analog joystick demo file useful. It is basis for the setup used in Club Silo Arcade Racer to provide steering wheel support.
