I am also working with pd under windows xp and I had exactly the same question.
is there any hope the [hid] will ever work under windows????
or is there any other alternative for us poor windows users???
let´s joystick around...if possible...


Hi all,

I'm trying to get a game-controller (and eventually also the Wii-controller) 
up and running on pure data which I am currently running on windows.
As I understand it the best object at the moment to tap into the datastreams 
produced by game controllers etc. is the HID-object build by Hans-Christoph 
Steiner. It isn't provided with the latest beta version of PD extended and 
I'm also beginning to believe that it doesn't even run on windows at all - 
is the right or wrong?
If there is a windows-version of this/these objects could someone please 
point me to them?
