You just want a dpad? No moving parts?

I think you might want to specify the specs of the dpad you need, if it is animated, transparent, etc..

Took about 5 mins and made a simple dpad for you in mspaint, just in case you don't find any.

lol, i wondered if anyone would notice the D

I would have done something more proper if he gave some specs and I had the time.

Thank you, however I was looking for something a bit more "professional-looking"...
I have designed a few d-pads for my other projects in the past (below is just one example)


For my current project I was hopping to get something more fitting in to the fps genre...
Below is the video of the game (just in case :-))

BTW, I am savvy enough with photoshop and objective-c to do the highlights on press, etc..

ah, you probably want something that feels more along the lines of an analogue stick and not a dpad for something like that.

I agree. In which case you could probably get away with a beveled circle that moves inside a larger circle.
