Just wondering if anyone can help. 1st up I'm not a developer so go easy on me.
I'm after some information, or even just keywords that will allow me to research further..
Im trying to find more about what data is accessible to 3rd party game developers.
it might help if i give you an example..
Lets say iv got a racing car simulator thats powered by hydraulics, if i steer to the left the hydraulics adjust to enhance the gaming experience.
My question is, is that data (speed, direction etc) freely usable on most games? If one wanted to interact with this data on xbox, ps or pc is it aloud and possible?
Does this data have a name or term used to describe it?
I apologise if thats a little generic.. If anyone knows more about this in detail id be extremely interested in speaking with them.
Thanks all for your help!
