The solution for using joysticks in Director and Authorware !

DirectControl Xtra is a cross platform, easy to use Scripting Xtra for Macromedia Director, Authorware, and Shockwave, that provides fast and consistent access to analog and digital joysticks.

DirectControl Xtra also applies to other ancillary input devices that track positions within an absolute coordinate system, such as a touch screen, digitizing tablet and light pen.

Each device can use up to six axes of movement, a point-of-view hat, and 32 buttons.

Applications can use DirectControl Xtra to determine the capabilities of attached joysticks and query for their axes position and buttons information.

DirectControl Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and above, and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME, NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8 and 9.

DirectControl Xtra is Shockwave safe, so it can also be used with Shockwave 7 or later and when safety features in Director are turned on.

An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of DirectControl Xtra is also available. It is a compressed, small sized (about 20K) version of the Xtra, that can be downloaded automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web with access to joysticks.

A 14 days trial version 2.0 of DirectControl Xtra can be downloaded from this page.
