SDL2 joystick interrogator 2.0

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).

A gaming competition… on jam entries!

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.

Cheers!

I only joined in 26 – but it’d be cool to see the complete history of everyone’s games, and their evolution through compos / jams. :)
