    Default controller/joystick for iPhone?

    Isn't a controller/joystick possible. Seems you could use the bottom port to make hardware addon with d-pad and buttons. Anyone currently working on something like this? I like the NES stuff, but I hate non-tactile controller and buttons. Even for the native games this would help alot.

    Hi !

    I own a Bluetooth Gamepad ( Nintendo Style ) which would need the SPP Bluetooth Profile.
    This would rock with the GBA & NES Emu, id did on my Windows CE Phone before.
    Drivers are even available in Source AFAIK, there also is a driver for Symbian Phones and PC.

    Greetings,

    Hi guys,

    Yes, I'm actually currently working on this. I've been working on it for a week or so and hope to have something soon. Getting input from the serial interface in the dock port has proven a bit tricky so far, that's really the only thing standing in the way.

    You'll know if/when I have this working I'm sure

    Actually, I'm working on a PIC based controller of my own. I know there are a couple of serial gamepads that were made a long time ago, but I'm going the homebrew route instead.
