    Looked through the forum and couldnt find anything on it. Just wondering if its possible. I have a rooted evo 4g and have been using the wiimote to play all my emulators, started to wonder if i could play something like dungeon hunter 2 or eternal legacy with a wii remote. I looked on the market and found an app thats got the right idea. I started playing around with it and realized that you could map a "touch" that would touch the x y coordinates on the screen, but i couldnt get it to actually make the "touch". I thought it could be my device or my rom. Any tips or am i dreaming too big?

    dreaming too big as far as i know.

    some games have support for pads like shadowgun, riptide and GTA3 soon.

    Unfortunately most don't, from gameloft, dead space and such.

    They really should add it, then you can plug into your tv and play like a console

    That's what I was thinking too. I don't know much about developing, but i don't think it would be too hard to make an app that would let you map button presses on a gamepad to certain coordinates on your screen.

    I thought of a "work around" for games that use on screen controls only and that was an app that took a controllers input and converted it to touch coordinates. So the app would have an over lay that you could move around a screen shot of the games controls. Then when the game was running and looking for touch screen inputs the app would take the controllers inputs and simulate the touch screens. I am not a programmer at all so how hard is this.... Don't know... is it possible.... I would think so since a game is simply looking for info from a file that provides output from the touchscreen, and we all know that you can mimic or mask anything. But other than my idea or developers putting controller setup in there games there is no real hope.
