Okay, more progress has been made, thanks to a couple of things:
- Post on the EpicGames forums by skwisdemon666: Full source of PlayerInput.uc, PlayerController.uc, and GameType.uc! I am going to work with this for a while and put up my modifications in a future post.
- The UnrealScript Cheat Sheet: A go-to reference for UnrealScript syntax.
- 4r7w4re’s UnrealScript tutorial: A little hard to follow sometimes, but certainly helpful.
- BeyondUnreal Wiki programming tutorials: Digging my way through these right now as well.
So at this point, I am able to move my pawn around with the Hydra joysticks, tweak that movement, and verify that I am reading button presses through the console. Its going slower than I would like, but its going. More soon!
