Gyroscope Z-Axis

I’m making some tests with the gyroscope(virtual joystick) on Android and I’m using the code from the Touch.as file, but the Z-Axis seems not to be detected.

Is this a known issue or I’m doing something wrong?

Did you modify Touch.as ? Just taking a peek at it, looks to me like it only detects movement on two axes. If you want to detect on a third axes, you’ll have to modify the code to do so, or otherwise interact with the JoystickState directly, something like:

if (input.numJoysticks > 0) // numJoysticks = 1 on iOS & Android { JoystickState@ joystick = input.joysticksByIndex[0]; if (joystick.numAxes >= 3) { zAxis = joystick.axisPosition[2]; } }

Thanks @hd_

Yes, I did it. I created a class for the gyroscope with a “update handler”. The Z-Axis return incorrect data, but X and Y work well.

UpdateMovement function:

void UpdateMovement() {
	JoystickState@ joy = input.joysticksByIndex[0];
	if(joy.numAxes >= 2) {
		float x = joy.axisPosition[1]; 	// ptich
		float y = joy.axisPosition[0];	// roll
		float z = joy.axisPosition[2];	// yaw

		if(x < -threshold || x > threshold)
			_pitch = x;
		if(y < -threshold || y > threshold)
			_roll = y;
		if(z < -threshold || z > threshold)
			_yaw = z;


		// NOTE: Debug(Android)
		gyroInfo.text = 
			"Pitch(x)(1): " + x +"\n"
			"Roll(y)(0): " + y +"\n"
			"Yaw(z)(2): " + z;

	}
}

UpdateMovement() is called from an Update() function.
_pitch, _roll and _yaw are private instance variables that are accessed from read only properties.
