    well i sort of had a great idea. what if we could use and ipod music remote as a game pad by coding the emu to read the button input (since the ipod is already reading these comands)?

    ive was thinking that very thought today. i started a thread yesterday about this, hoping a 3rd party developer (or Apple) would release a gamepad. but if that doesnt happen, im going to make one of my own.

    if a few game/emulator developers would add compatibility for remote buttons. all they would need to do is make the directional pad (obviously) control up,down,left,right. and then add the play, pause, ff, rewind buttons as configurable A,B,X,Y (or whatever u want)

    im going to look at a few of the 3rd party remotes out there, and try to hack one open, and transplant the internals to a nice gamepad of my choice.
