Does the XIM support DirectX joystick inputs.

My most comfortable FPS set up is a Chproducts joystick in my right hand and a optical trackball in my left.

 ala the old Madcatz Panther XL.



How can I get the XIM software to recognize direct joystick inputs? The Joystick is a 18 button DirectX input device which includes 2 hats.

While using the Wii controller, are you emulating keyboard presses with the Wiimote?

No, but, I designed XIM so that other people can provide their own "front ends". Check out XAE under the "other" downloads section. I believe it supports DirectInput devices.

And, about the Wiimote -- I access the device directly via bluetooth.
Get the most out of your XIM NEXUS, read the XIM NEXUS Support FAQ.
