EWM Update: Joystick Support

Finished initial Joystick support for my emulator. Works pretty well with the XBox 360 Wireless controller. This is where using SDL is paying off. It has nice abstractions for finding game controllers and joysticks.

Choplifter is very playable. Also tried Hard Hat Mack and Ms Pac-man. Strangely Cider Spider does not work at all. Not sure what is going on there yet.

I’m thinking I should implement some kind of keyboard to D-pad mapping. So that you can play keyboard games with a controller.

My work is slowing down, because I keep playing games. Not sure if good or bad. Lots of fun though.

If you are interested in playing around with my emulator, you can find the project at github.com/st3fan/ewm.
