Botszy supports USB gamepads and joystick devices. Most joysticks provide several movement channels, typically pitch, yaw, roll, and sometimes a thrust channel. Botszy can handle all these channels and buttons in a flexible way to control your creature. To check the available input axis, you can open the device properties in the Windows Control Panel.
