Logitech virtual joystick plus Steelseries virtual buttons on an iPad: great idea or stupid idea?
So with the news that Bioshock is coming out for iPad etc tonight, I'm thinking about getting myself a virtual controller. I figure there are only going to be more and more fps and rpg ports, and pure touch control just doesn't do it for me a lot of the time- loses too much precision. But I also feel like having a fully separate controller kind of ruins the point of playing on iPad.
So! The stick-on physical stick and buttons seem to be the way to go. Steelseries has the stick and three buttons
but reviews tell me the stick is inferior to the Logitech version
. But Logitech's has no buttons.
So since they're both relatively cheap, it seems like it'd be ideal to mix them and use the Logitech stick and the Steelseries buttons. But would they play nice together, or would the iPad not be able to recognize them both at once? Either google doesn't know, or I'm entirely failing to ask it correctly. Either way, I'm sure some of you fine people know the answer.
Ooh and if I may sneak in a corollary question: I know these are meant for use with games that already have a virtual stick and buttons onscreen, where the area is premapped for that functionality. Is there a way to make the iPad recognize the inputs with games that don't have the premapping like that? I have a feeling that it might be possible with the buttons but not with the stick, but I really don't know. Maybe there's some nifty way of hacking that.
Thanks in advance!
