JSController

A set of classes that make it easy to build a controller UI for games.

  • Written purely in UIKit
  • All controls are both delegate based and/or pollable.
  • D-Pad class with full 8 directions, background and direction images can be swapped out
  • Push Button class with configurable background images
  • Analogue stick class that uses a normalized -1.0 to 1.0 scale and supports inverted Y axis. Background and handle images can be swapped out.
  • Can be used within Interface Builder
    • Just drag a UIView onto your XIB and set it's class as JSDPad, JSButton or JSAnalogueStick. You can set it's delegate from within interface builder as well as its position and size.

This project uses ARC. If your project does not use ARC, you will need to add the compiler flag -fobjc-arc to each of the JSController classes used in your project. This can be done in the Compile Sources build phase in the project settings.

(In progress)

  • Configurability
    • Ability to position and scale controls (now available in the 'scalability' branch for some controls)
  • Preset control layouts
    • Plist files that describe a layout from which buttons, where they are, what they look like
