I'm fairly new to game development and unity in general. Think of me as a square one noob to the software.
I'm doing a project for my degree incorporating the leap motion capture device as a controller for a "reaching" game. I am currently following this tutorial : HERE on how to create a "Flappy Bird Style game" I want a front raise of the hand "with the arm stretched out" to control the Y co-ordinate of my "Bird".
I just don't understand how to import the leap as an actual controller for the game as the game is 2D.
So all I need to know is :
How to use the leap device as a controller.
How to script it to control my characters Y co-ordinate. Using an open hand up/down movement.
I'm a complete rookie at unity and coding in general. I'm a competent learner but please go easy on the jargon.
For anyone who helps me by answering these questions i'll happily donate a payment for their effort.
