in game maker 8.1 the lib folder is located in your computer's Appdata folder. the folder is hidden so to find it you will have to run a search on your computer.
here is a little library that i made a little while ago. it includes the joystick actions i made a while back and more.
movement with the arrow keys and the WASD keys. no credit needed. (although it would be ok i guess)
download it HERE. it works with the lite version.
(and its free, why not?)
also, if you want, here is the code for controlling an object with the left joystick.if joystick_xpos(1) = 0 hspeed = 0 else hspeed = joystick_xpos(1)*(5) if joystick_ypos(1) = 0 vspeed = 0 else vspeed = joystick_ypos(1)*(5)
EDIT: Also,please comment.
Ummmmmmmmmm......... I have 8.1 and I wanted to try this out, but I couldn't figure out what to do with your file. Can you instruct me on how to do so? I do not have a library folder in GM anywhere.
try this location. C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\GameMaker\lib
