For Windows: Instead of eventghost or something, use Xpadder, so the buttons on your gamepad register regular keypresses instead of special events... then use Xpadderhook, which will change the configuration when you launch a game...
It works great for me with a couple of windows games and zsnes with an xbox360 controller...

Can you post a link to this xpadderhook? Google shows nada.
Edit: Nevermind, my google-fu was weak....

just wanted to say i hope intergrating emulators happens soon, cause its the only thing missing from my otherwise amazing XBMC HTPC, hopefully we will see it happen,
BTW thanks to everyone who is working on getting this up and working

i'm still following this project, any news ? maybe for next XBMC Live release ?

There is currently no one actively working on the game library feature so do not expect anything in that regard for the next (9.11) point release.

I've stopped working on this branch, but it has some completed work that can be merged with XBMC main version:
1. Scraper support for Programs (you can get title & thumb for your games & applications)
2. Ability to launch single program without plugins (.exe, .bat or .lnk file in windows)
I don't know why XBMC guys don't want to merge it as is...

because merging half-finished, unmaintained code is a certain road to a bloated codebase.

The current XBMC Programs module is half-finished... it doesn't do anything (without "Launcher" plugin)
The games-library branch is one step forward to make it complete even without the "Library Mode".
It will give an ability to launch applications & games and to create useful plugins based on it.
I don't see a reason to keep it out.

easy for you to say - you don't have to deal with the repercussions when bug reports and a gazillion feature requests starts popping up. i much rather have no support than half-done support. the former makes it clear this is nothing we're working on, the latter opens the cans of worms.

I'm happy with XBMC anyway... (:
