Joystick Nav Vizard4 vs Vizard 5
Hello there,

I recently updated to Vizard 5, but now the code I was using for my joystick no longer works. I've tried following the joystick instructions for Vizard 5, but I can get it the joystick to function like I need it to (i.e., like it did in Vizard 4).

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The code I used in Vizard 4 is below. Vizard 5 gives the error "no module named sid":


def mytimer(num):
                y = sid.get()[1]
                x = sid.get()[0]
                twist = (180.0 / math.pi) * (sid.aux()[3])
                if math.fabs(y) > 0.5:
                if math.fabs(x) > 0.5:
                if math.fabs(twist) > 20:

The sid module for connecting to gamepad devices is quite old and has been removed from Vizard 5. The vizjoy module replaced sid and is documented in both Vizard 3 and 4. Now in Vizard 5, the recommended way to connect to a DirectInput compatible gamepad and joystick device is using the DirectInput plug-in.

Have you tried the or other example scripts included with Vizard?
