I'm pretty sure he didnt say that.. this functions were added to introduce PS3 and 360 gamepads compatibility, wich are widely used and GMS lacked support for. Android gamepads are not as important. Altrough I agree this is a step n the right direction before adding any sort of OUYA compatibility />/>/>/>
I'm pretty sure Russel said that in upcoming update they'll add controller support to Android, which will be accessible with the GamePad features.
Sorry, I was reading Nocturne's post.
would love the ability to access joystick functions on Andoid
Audio will get fade functions in the next update (both for individual soounds and music I believe), with more things to come as it gets done. Remember the audio should be over-hauled and finished for the 1.2 update which isn't too far away. As for the joystick options, I'm not sure when they will be going in, but I'm sure it'll happen soon. However to say that the lack of joystick support is "crippling" you is an over-reaction I think! The majority of Android games do not support (or even need) joystick support which is probably why it has not has the same attention as other issues.
So I'm assuming it's on the menu for the near future.
