SDL2 joystick interrogator 2.0

I recently rebooted development of a project I tried to develop for the Ludum Dare 20 contest held in April 2011, the theme of which was “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!”

As the project will require a controller with an analogue stick to play I’ve begun to develop a utility to interrogate the capabilities of various controllers; and, as I feel that the SDL2 documentation is lacking with regards to the joystick support offered by that library, I’ve posted – in addition to an executable of that utility for Mac OS X (and I want to release executables for additional platforms – the Raspberry Pi in particular – in the future) – the source code to that utility to GitHub for the benefit both of myself and of others.

Note that to use the utility you will need to have SDL2_image – in addition to SDL2 – installed.

Amongst the changes in version 2.0 of the utility are that:

  • the utility now features support for multiple controllers;
  • the utility now features detection of POV hats (and, contrary to what I wrote in the past, the D-pad of the Sony PlayStation 2 DualShock 2 controller is not disabled in analogue mode – rather, it is in that mode detected as being a POV hat (at least using my PlayStation-to-USB adapter));
  • the utility now features preliminary detection of trackballs – “preliminary” as neither of my controllers (the other being a Sony PlayStation 3 DualShock 3) features a trackball;
  • the utility now features preliminary detection of whether or not a controller has haptic capabilities – “preliminary” as neither of my controllers has been detected as having haptic capabilities in spite of both of my controllers having haptic capabilities (although my adapter or my OS (Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard) might be to blame).

Hi guys! At the neighbor Alakajam! community, we have hosted something special this month: 8 games from Alakajam! and Ludum Dare have been handpicked for people to compete on them, post high scores, and climb the leaderboard!

leadWe’re having a lot of fun so far, and it’s quite a different experience to really play and try to master the games, rather than just test them to give feedback. The competition is fierce but there’s still a chance for good players to get a spot in the podium.

Of course this is all just for fun, with no prizes or anything :)

The competition ends on May 31st, before we switch to the next big jam, planned for the 22-24 June week-end. The last Alakajam was pretty exciting as well, with 71 entries on the theme “You can’t see everything”. We hope to see you around for the end of the Tournament, and hopefully the next jam!

EDIT: The tournament is over, the site has now switched to launch the 22-24 June jam!

Hi all,

I post this here because ldjam.com is not really googleable.

I created a browser / search engine for Ludum Dare 41 to enable searching by platform and to browse the games more easily.

Hello Ludumites,

I’ve been told I pronounce LudumDare wrong, but regardless of this fact – check out my latest development log for some of my top tips on participating in a game jam!

Is there a way to transfer your history to the new site?

I find it a bummer on the new site it says my account is 8 months old and has 0 games connected to it. Is there anyway for it to acknowledge your games on this, the legacy site?

I’m in!

This is about Mayans MC season 1, episode 8. The first season of the American television drama series Mayans M.C. premiered on September 4, 2018, and concluded on November 6, 2018 after 10 episodes aired on cable network FX. Mayans M.C. is an American crime drama television series created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. The show takes place in the same fictional universe as Sons of Anarchy and deals with the Sons’ rivals-turned-allies, the Mayans Motorcycle Club.

Such a fantastic show however fans, Mayans M.C. takes place four years after the events of Sons of Anarchy and is set hundreds of miles away in the fictional California border town of Santo Padre. The series focuses on the struggles of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan M.C. charter on the border. EZ is the gifted son of a proud Mexican family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his need for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape.

Great enough anyway, On May 11, 2016, it was announced that FX had begun formal script development on a spinoff of the television series Sons of Anarchy. The long-rumored offshoot, entitled Mayans M.C., was created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James, with James writing the pilot script and both executive producing.

Production companies announced as being involved with the series included Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. On December 1, 2016, FX officially gave the production a pilot order. It was also announced that Sutter would direct the series’ pilot episode.

This is very promising to know further and let’s watch of it, The Flash season 5, episode 3. The fifth season of the American television series The Flash, which is based on the DC Comics character Barry Allen / Flash, premiered on The CW on October 9, 2018 and is set to consist of 22 episodes.

The season follows Barry, a crime scene investigator with superhuman speed who fights criminals, including others who have also gained superhuman abilities, as he deals with the consequences of his future daughter’s time traveling.

It is set in the Arrowverse, sharing continuity with the other television series of the universe, and is a spin-off of Arrow. The season is produced by Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Entertainment, with Todd Helbing serving as showrunner.

The season was ordered in April 2018, and production began that July. Grant Gustin stars as Barry, with principal cast members Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, and Jesse L. Martin also returning from previous seasons, while Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, and Jessica Parker Kennedy were promoted to series regulars from their recurring statuses in season four. They are joined by new cast member Chris Klein.

This is very promising and wonderful enough. The team recruits Harrison Sherloque Wells to help them catch Cicada, who Nora reveals is unstoppable in the future. Caitlin and Ralph confront Caitlin’s mother, who denies forging her husband’s death certificate. They later break into her files and find a suicide note from Caitlin’s father. Sherloque pinpoints Cicada as David Hersch, as he was previously correct 37 times. As a result of Nora’s tampering with the timeline however, his identity on Earth-1 is different. Cicada attacks Joe to lure out Vibe and when Cisco arrives, Cicada stabs him and breaks his arm. Barry arrives, but is easily defeated.

Nora enacts an explosion to drive Cicada off, which results in Cisco’s apparent death. However, Cisco reappears, having used a breach machine to escape. With the public and Cicada believing that Vibe is dead, Sherloque agrees to help the team. Caitlin deciphers a hidden message from her father, Thomas, asking her to come find him. Cicada visits his comatose niece in the hospital. Nora agrees to stay with her parents, despite her seemingly strained relationship with Iris. Sherloque begins to suspect that Nora is not in 2018 for the reasons she gave.
