    RoadRunner USB Joystick V3.0 Released



    What does this do ?

    It allows you to control RoadRunner via a usb joystick/gamepad

    Whats the point of Joypad 3.0 then ?

    I hacked up a usb gamepad and soldered the buttons to me audio stork in the car, which now allows be to control the volume / tracks from the steering wheel

    Version 3 ?

    Yeah. they have been a couple of version releases before but this has been beta tested quite alot and I'm very happy with it now. It should also work with gamepads it didnt do before.

    How do I use it ?
    Plug in your gamepad, start the application up and select your game pad from the drop down menu, then click SAVE. It will then connect to your joypad which you can then use to control RoadRunner, just alter the standard RoadRunner commands to suit.

    Where do I get it from ?
    grab it from my freedrive site.

    Please let me know what you all think.

    Good job man!
    This release works perfectly with my joypad, I never have been able to get it working with the previous ones.

    Thank you CdR!!!

    Simple curiosity: any chance to get the sources?

    I realize this, but people will just use bugmenot. It's also good to have a copy here if his server is down or something.

    Then that is up to them and him to prevent if necessary.

    I still think you should take it down, we don't want something similar to what happened over the Freedom skin.

    If he wanted it openly downloaded from the thread he would have posted the same.


    I have the same setup for my skins and programs, I do it so I can monitor how popular they are and also for other reasons. I would also consider withdrawing my stuff if people just posted it elsewhere to download.

    please respect the developers wishes.

    This is a really cool idea! It just made me think about hacking up a mouse and putting the scroll wheel in the steering wheel..
