I came across an interesting video which I would like to share with you all. It concerns about a Linux subsystem embedded into Windows 10 of late which enables the user to run Linux apps on Windows, much like how WINE allows Linux users to run Windows apps.

Now before I go into my own thoughts on the subject, I would like to hear your thoughts. Are you pleased with a Windows and Linux collaboration? Or are you against such? Or better yet do you believe that it is all a scam to reel back in those who have abandoned Windows and MAC for Linux?

I'd looked at AssImp, but the library is massive, so I passed it by. The zip is 30+ MB. I don't know how that would pan out with the rest of ENIGMA.
As far as a pull request goes, I don't actually have a github account, but once the code gets large enough (and stable enough) to warrant it, I'll consider it.
Slow dev or otherwise, I'm happy; with just a little tweaking and some customer support, you have the features I need for my game programming needs.

If I had time to explore the 3D modeling space in ENIGMA, I would focus on adding support for AssImp in general. I think Collada is a big step in that direction, though, so this is an awesome change. Have you considered putting this code in a pull request? Movement in the 3D space here remains slow.

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.
