DOH!
Silly me, forgot to tell you all that for the External to work 
correctly during development
it should be in both the stack directory and the Revolution application 
directory.
I make this mistake 1 out of 10 times Tobi updates an external.
A finished application of course only needs it in the built application 
directory.

Hmm Neither of us owns game controllers. I suggest contacting USB 
OverDrive folks and see if they
would be interested in building an external. If not it will be some 
time before we have money to go buy new toys.

Does overdrive send keyboard commands if told to do so? Like hit button 
"X" and the preset key is sent a keydown?
If so try setting it to WASDRFQE and Arrows keys and see what results 
you get with the demo's.

  Works on Mac OS X and Windows.
