Game Controller library sample

This is a basic sample app that demonstrates use of the Game Controller library. The sample:

  • Displays graphical representation of control inputs from the active controller
  • Displays information about connected controllers
  • Provides an interface to test optional extended controller features, such as vibration

There are two versions of the sample. One uses NativeActivity, the other uses GameActivity.


Before building in Android Studio the following prerequisites must be performed:


  1. Open a terminal and set the working directory to samples/game_controller/
  2. cd third-party (mkdir if it doesn't exist)
  3. git clone
  4. cd imgui
  5. git fetch --all --tags
  6. git checkout tags/v1.80 -b v1.80


Once the prerequisites are complete, open the nativeactivity or gameactivity directories in Android Studio 4.2 or higher. You can then build and run the samples from Android Studio.
