Hi..

I need to be able to recognize keystrokes from a gamepad. So that when I hit a button/direction, that i can impact my movie. I'm assuming that if i find the keyvalue, maybe just using an on keypress action will do the trick, but I cannot find out what the key value is for my gamepad...

any help?

I think that flash itself does not support the gamepad yet. YOu can use a third party tool, though that will only work if you convert your swf into an exe:

This has joystick support, which should work for your gamepad as well.
