I'm using an Xbox 360 controller. Is there a way to assign the action of dragging the playback slider bar back and forth to the analog sticks?


Any idea what the analog sticks come up as under the joystick properties?


I believe up and down is X axis and left and right is Y axis.


But doesn't the gamepad have two analog sticks?

Yeah, but I(as well as most people), only care about the left one

This plugin is awesome!
I have a few requests:

- The ability to make the keys disabled when certain programs have focus. For example, I amusing my PS2 controller as my media "joystick" and using it to play some computer games. When I am in those games, if I press the keys I have assigned, it messes with my music. So if we could disable the keys when specified programs have focus, that'd be great.

- Have little text boxes beside each key entry where we can put custom titles so we know which "button 1, button 2" etc is where on the joystick. Or just make it so we can 'rename' "button 1" etc as X, or Triangle or something. It would make it easier to remember what button does what.

- Maybe have configs you could save and load button mappings from?

Also, if you're taking requests for commands, then:

- Stop
- Activate Now Playing
- Send To Playlist...
- foo_run commands
- Everything foobar can do to a file (I think you can get a full list the way panels_ui does it?)

Thats all for now, this plugin is really awesome .

Working perfect with Microsoft Sidewinter. I hope that you have enough time and you're willing to develop this great plugin even better -thanks

New Version (beta stage)

Hey hey everyone.

I am pleased to release my latest version, which still is in a state of flux... but is working (for me atleast).
  • New Configuration Interface
  • Multiple Joystick Support
  • Many new actions

If anyone wants to try it, I have posted it at http://foobar2000.mofo.ca/joystick_control/

Please let me know if it works or not.

I still want to...
  • have an option to change the sensitivity of the axis
  • option to change how fast actions repeat
  • add some visual clue to the interface to help figure out what button being pressed corresponds to which number
  • and most importantly, find free time for this.

Doesn't work for me.    I can set key at setting screen (very nice new action by the way.) but when i press button at my joystick. nothing happen.

Old version work fine. Hope you can fix it.

I made a quick bug fix but didn't give it a new version number. However, I noticed one person has downloaded it so far (124.157.225.XXX) so please make sure you grab a new copy. It fixes a bug where some commands would crash foobar (like stop) - but it works now

Nice man    seem to work now.

but i can't set "repeat" at all. (The repeat checkbox cannot be set) is this normal?

and my action don't repeat at all. at first i thought it's normal but i see you intend to have action to repeat. so i report it here.

the checkbox should be greyed out until I get some more time to work on it - there's actually a hidden 3rd column which will contain this information.

But all actions should repeat if you hold down a button long enough. (for example I mapped `up' to increase font size, and can hold it down (well up) and the font keeps on growing really large until I let go.)

Nope. I assign "up" on my joystick to increase volume. I have hold it for minute now and no repeat.

Last version i used (0.1.1 tor edition i think) the joy axis does repeat command. but my button don't.

I use china fake PS1 usb joystick if you want to know. and it work properly.

Keikonium mentioned a useful way to identify buttons.  Two other ways could be to automatically detect the controller format (PS2 / XBox / etc) or simply have LED type lights added to be beside each button in the list.

...just a thought

might be a pretty cool app for a carputer to simplify the interface.

That's exactly what I want to do. Times a bit short unfortunately as I recently started a new jorb.

Thanks for the input - it is great motivation.

Ok, great work on this plugin. It's pretty sweet that I can get rid of my crappy logitech multimedia keyboard and use my already present joystick(that I use as a sidebrake for the sim LFS)  to control foobar.

But...
I am experiencing one bug, whenever I close foobar2000, it actually stays active in the task manager and eats 90~99% CPU..

Version 1.1 does not have this problem.

It only seems to happen with my Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback 2 joystick. It doesn't happen when only my G25 steering wheel is plugged in.

Problem persists with both standard windows drivers and Sidewinder drivers.

I want to assign [context/now playing] set rating to a joy stick.
Although it is doing by the keyboard shortcut using Quick Tagger, the collision of a hot key has been a problem.
