Virtual Joystick/GamePad Help (360d movement)


there is a gamemaker tutorial that went over on-screen controls. they did something just like this. basically you have an area that is considered the joystick. when a press is detected in that area, you then get a direction from the center of the area to the actual touch. the tricky part is recognizing multiple touches because you probably want some buttons while the joystick is being used.
