Joystick competition pro usb


#21

GetControlerName() return the device_name field handed by the kernel device, which is usb_hid.
Seems that this fiield is not set anymore, which will be a bug introduced when usb_joy was deprecated maybe.

How looks the Joystick preference window with this controler detected ?


#22

I could not find this window at all so I can not tell you I’m afraid.

You said usb_joy is deprecated. Does this mean BJoystick is deprecated or is it just something in the kernel unrelated to the API at all.


#23

usb_joy was the old driver for joysticks, it was replaced by the new usb_hid driver which implements the same device interface. BJoystick works with either, as well as old-style gameport joysticks where available.

The joystick preferences is not included in the default image. I tried to build it but it did not seem to work with my USB gamepad (it lists the port, but seems to thnk it should run a “detection” process to use a specific driver for each type of joystick, as was the case on gameports).


#24

IIRC, one have to edit some joystick description file, which is loaded by JoystickTweaker to enhance and set more user-friendly and defined names to device features.

EDIT: giving a look to JoystickTwearker source, it show that indeed the device name (which GetControllerName() returns) and others descriptions are loaded, when found, from a joystick description file that should be located in /boot/home/config/settings/joysticks/ (for an USB joysticks, that would be …/joysticks/usb/0 etc), with a syntax like this:

module =
(only usefull for old gameport-based joystick, usb sticks are dynamically detected by usb_hid kernel module
gadget =
(that’s your ControllerName string, by default a “2-axis” should be returned according API spec, but it’s not the case)

and those below, to statically declare stick features for gameport-based joysticks.
It’s useless for USB sticks are there info are dynamically retrieved from USB HID report

num_axes =
num_hats =
num_buttons =
num_sticks =

So, @dragon, try to create a /boot/home/config/settings/joysticks/usb/0 file with this content:

module = usb_hid
gadget = Here your gamepad controller name

(Beware, code expect gadget=<value…>, so space around the equal are mandatory)

and check if it change something.

hi,

my config:

Haiku hrev 51611 running on VMware12. Haiku shows with listusb the joypad:

0e0f:0008 /dev/bus/usb/0/1/0 “VMware, Inc.” “” ver. 0100
6666:0667 /dev/bus/usb/0/1/1 “Prototype product Vendor ID” “WiseGroup Smart Joy PSX, PS-PC Smart JoyPad” ver. 0288

0000:0000 /dev/bus/usb/0/hub “HAIKU Inc.” “UHCI RootHub” ver. 0110
0000:0000 /dev/bus/usb/1/hub “HAIKU Inc.” “EHCI RootHub” ver. 0200

but in joystickutelizer doesn’t work.
what make i wrong or is there a problem?

In my experience the joystick just disconnect randomly.

Sometimes it work, sometimes it dont work. :frowning: And the other bug i see, sometimes it just dont show when you press a button, seems like it cant put a character in the configurator and it is just blind.
