Announcing: libstratcom 1.0rc1 on github

June 19th, 2014 No comments

libstratcom is a cross-platform library for interacting with the Microsoft SideWinder Strategic Commander digital game controller.

The latest version can be found on github now. The new 1.0 RC1 version comes with added cross-platform support (Windows, OS X, Linux and FreeBSD) thanks to HIDAPI. I also redesigned the API to use C library interface instead of a full fledged C++ interface to make it easier for people to generate bindings for other languages.

I have been working on a DirectInput joystick driver based on the library and work is coming along quite well. Check back soon for more.
