What is Joystick?
Joystick is an external for the Windows version of Max/MSP that allows you to get data from DirectInput game controllers. These are devices such as joysticks, gamepads, or steering wheel and pedal combinations. A Joystick object gives you access to a game controller's buttons, axes, rotational axes, sliders, and POV hats.
