currently I try to make this game with GC. :) i hope I can make it well as what I want
Anyway for mobile platform, I had needed to set joystick like above image. According to your joystick.cs or joystickmanager.cs (sorry I cant remember it's name well). I can force to show joystick on the screen with change one bool variable from false to true.
So, if there are one option to force to show joystick on the screen (perhaps you can add one check box on the preferences of Game creator) it will be cool to use
and i hope GC can offer more useful touchpad not only joystick but also buttons which can match with keycodes. :)
