Feature requests / N900 port
« on: October 24, 2010, 02:38:13 am »
It would be nice to have SFML for the Nokia N900 phone. Since the Maemo OS that the phone uses is essentially a desktop Linux system, porting SFML might only require compiling and .deb packaging, at least if SFML can run on GLES2.

Any chance of that happening or are there some obstacles that I am overlooking?

I will install the SDK and hack around a bit to get used to that and after a while I could probably try porting SFML myself, if it seems feasible. Maemo already has all the libraries that SFML depends on (as well as plenty of others such as Boost, SDL, glibmm, ...).

Feature requests / Joystick names and other information
« on: August 13, 2010, 03:14:08 am »
We (Performous developers) need joystick names for controller autodetection. SDL and ClanLib provide this information, but I couldn't find anything about it in SFML docs, so either I missed something or here's a request for such feature.

SDL and ClanLib also fail to display some controls (GHWT guitar tilt sensor) and device identification information (we cannot tell GHWT guitars and drums apart because both look identical on SDL/ClanLib). I'm afraid that there is little that SFML could do to solve this and that the actual problem lies on a lower level (joystick drivers). The required information is available on the evdev API, but apparently it gets lost somewhere along the way.
