I'll figure out who owns that Dropbox link and see about getting the file re-hosted.

I use an iBuffalo SNES Controller and a standard Nintendo GameCube controller using the Mayflash adapter. Been a Nintendo fan my entire life; Nintendo controllers are all I know how to use.

The old server has been decommissioned—this migration is officially complete.  I am still investigating the email problem, but otherwise, the site should be at 100 percent.

EDIT[2017-10-21@UTC+20:08]: Email is fixed.

There's an adapter that allows PS1 and PS2 controllers to connect to the PC. Check it out here. And I threw away all of mine. :-\ :-\

I selected keyboard because that is all I have. But I wouldn't mind having a console gamepad to play my desktop games with. I don't really have a preference, though. Both XBox and PlayStation are fine, imo. I'm familiar with the button and analog stick layout diferences because I have a PS2 and some friends who own an XBox. I've looked on Google and apparently as newer versions of those consoles came out, the controllers didn't change much, if at all, (other than becoming wireless, Bluetooth, and USB compatible).

Now, when it comes to Nintendo-based gamepads, I hate them all ever since the original Nintendo Wii came out. Way too simple by design, and not enough buttons. The Nintendo Switch without a Pro controller is a real joke to me, the default controllers are just like the Wii, basically one dpad / analog stick and like 3-4 buttons. It's sad because I used to love Nintendo back in the GameCube, (and earlier), days...

Thought it would be interesting to hear from you all on the type of controllers you use when gaming. It would also help me to consider different types of control when I am developing a project.

I have 2 types of controllers.
  • Playstation 3 SIXAXIS DUALSHOCK 3
  • XBox controller (the original XBox console) modified with a USB end
Actually the Playstation 3 works directly in LINUX but in Windows I have to load a driver and map it. Then the XBox controller works fine in Windows but goes haywire in LINUX.

That will require a little more work. My biggest priority for the site right now is to get the email server working—I started a thread on the SMF support forums; feel free to follow along, there. If they can't give me a way to debug SMF's direct interaction with Google's SMTP server, I will have to change it so SMF contacts localhost, and my own MTA contacts Google.

Once that's done, I can take another look into the EDC, I suppose.


When ever you get the chance!  (Y)  No rush!

The plan for now is to update the Wiki software to the latest version and install a new SMF adapter (the current one's pretty wonky).

The only other problem we've found is that I've broken the LateralGM.org ErrorDocument handler.



Can one now upload their own examples and mini-games to the EDC now since you did updates?
