Since people have already ordered a Bitbox, they will need their USB game pad to work. Here is how your device can be supported on the Bitbox. As I cannot buy every gamepad on earth, I will rely on you to provide information to me so that I can add the various gamepads to the firmware.
The process is the following :
- you open a ticket case on the github account, stating a "nice to have" support for joystick XYZ
- you include your model name, VID, PID and USB report descriptor attachments. To get them under linux, you can use the following method: http://www.slashdev.ca/2010/05/08/get-usb-report-descriptor-with-linux/ please leave a comment if you would like a windows tutorial.
- I add the right values in the firmware to be able to support it
- You test it with your gamepad (using the kernel test application by example) and report if it is ok.
- I can close the ticket !
