Detecting USB Device Plug in or Removal RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi!

    Working on our pc shoot em up game I've struggled a bit with support for game pads.

    The trickiest part was knowing if a game pad had been inserted or removed while the game was running. I spent a good few hour looking for information so when I finally got it working I wrote a short tutorial, so if you plan on adding game pad support or other usb device to your windows apps you can get some info in my game development blog.
