does MOgre have a input engine for key inputs (like in a game engine)
MOgre, as Ogre, is for rendering only, but input engines are quite easy to use with MOgre. You can use direct input from DirectX. Have a look at the ExempleApplication that comes with MOgre, it is very good and quite easy
none of the examples did work..
a file handle was missing ?!
bad news, these examples are made to work, you should go carefully through to tutorial 0 again....
The MOgre example app includes it and initalises an 'input' variable
I assume the next release with use a wrapped OIS for input which will be nice as it supports joysticks/wheels and Wii controllers
