iCADE-iOS

Project which demonstrates using the iCADE, iControlPad and Gametel with iOS devices.

Demo

Pair up you iCADE, iControlPad or Gametel controller, run the project and you're off.

Usage

To use in your own app, copy the following 3 files from the iCade folder:

  • iCadeReaderView.h, iCadeReaderView.m and iCadeState.h

Add an instance of iCadeReaderView to your main game view. Set view.active = YES to ensure the view receives events from the controller. In addition, when active, the view will automatically handle didEnterBackground and didBecomeActive notifications, to avoid loss of events.
You can either read the iCadeReaderView.iCadeState property to determine the current state, or implement the iCadeEventDelegate protocol on your target to receive appropriate notifications.

Hardware Compatibility

Mapping

Lists the mapping between various controllers. Directional controls are the same. It is recommended you use the latest v2.3 iControlPad firmware and start the device by holding down A+B+Y then START. This firmware will be official soon.

8 buttons are mapped as follows:

iCADE    iControlPad (2.1a, 2.3), Gametel
A        SELECT
B        LEFT SHOULDER
C        START
D        RIGHT SHOULDER
E        Y
F        A
G        B
H        X

The iCADE button layout is:

A C E G
B D F H
