Windows Joystick Support? 

Sorry if this question has been answered before, but I honestly did do a forum search for "joystick" prior to this post, and all the topics listed had to do with ScummVM on a cell phone.

So here's my questions--does joystick support currently work on the Windows build? I notice that there is a "--joystick" switch (optionally can be entered as "--joystick=NUM" to specified joystick # NUM) that's supposed to work from the command line, but whenever I try to start ScummVM using either the default or specifying a joystick number, ScummVM refuses to start and instead shows the listing of all command-line options, like it would had I tried to start it up using an invalid command-line option.

Anyone have any tips, or is Joystick support currently not working in the latest release?

Thanks in advance!

No one? 

No one has any insight on this question?

Cheers...

scummvm --joystick
doesn't work here either, but e.g.

scummvm --joystick=1
works fine.

I have no joystick to test it with, but at least it starts instead of showing the help.

Ok, thanks for the tip! I've been trying "--joystick=0" since I only have one joystick plugged in (for some reason, I was thinking that gaming device #s start with 0?), but I'll try "--joystick=1" and report back my results.

Thanks again!

Update! 

Ok... I downloaded the daily snapshot a couple days ago, and when I tried the "--joystick=0" switch, it was working!

So I guess maybe it's just a problem with the 0.8.0 release? I need to go back and test that version again and see if I still have the same problem.

Cheers...

There were no changes in that part of the code since 0.8.0 release. Weird.

About Joysticks on Macintosh 

Can I use joysticks on Macintosh?
I saw the same command line thing on the ScummVm Readme. I have to use the Terminal?

Thanks in advance!
Elbio.
