Today I got the adaptor ps2 to usb I ordred a while ago so i can try the last controller I got from Jonas. It’s the Dance Pad for Dance Dance Revolution game series (1999-).
I have quite some found memories of this controller as it was that one that got me into rythm games and the concept of using your feet to press buttons is still cool. That being said could it work for our game?

While it’s most popular as a controller combined with Occulus Rift it can work well without it. Today we tried to experiment with this controler to our game.

Today we tried the game Steel Battalion on the original Xbox. After yesterdays failiures of getting it to work we it to work great today. Anyways Steel Battalion is a action game where you control a gigantic mech. The thing that really stands out with that is the controller. It has around 40 buttons, two sticks 3 pedals and a gear lever that makes it the most massive controller ever.

Yesterday i worked on polishing the trigger controllers. I got kinda bored with doing that so today I decided to go crazy. I asked one of our teachers Jonas if he could lend us some controllers and he gave us…. pretty much everything the school got!
