Gamepad Support

From Endrov

There is experimental support for gamepad and joysticks in newer versions. For certain things a gamepad makes a lot more sense than a mouse; a PS-style gamepad as shown below has four analog axis', an additional directional digital control and plenty of buttons. A mouse only have 2-3 axis and 2-3 buttons so additional functionality has to be mapped down to fewer controls or removed.

The gamepad commands are either sent to the active window or to the hardware (i.e. the microscope stage). You can choose which in File -> Input.

Currently only the model window and the microscope stage can be controlled.
