In our demo, we use a PS3 controller, because it's also equipped with a tilt sensor that can be used for paper tilt in Expresii.
Since the P3 controller is not native to the Windows OS, we need some third-party software to make it work on the PC: MotionInJoy driver, Better DS3. You first install the MotionInJoy driver, which also comes with its own control mapping tool, but it's better to use the Better DS3 tool for easier mapping.
If your game controller is native to PC, you probably can simply plug and play.
To test the game controller we use Joystick Tester . We map the controller tilt to R and U values as shown in the Joystick Tester .
The following is video showing how it works together:
