Joysticks DO NOT Work On Windows Vista OS...

Joysticks DO NOT Work On Windows Vista OS...

Hi,

I am trying to get my joystick to work on Windows Vista using SFML 1.4 + SVN...


I am using:
Code: [Select]
const sf::Input& Input = visuals->App.GetInput();

JoystickAxisX = Input.GetJoystickAxis(0, sf::Joy::AxisX);

to get the X axis of my joystick, but it is always 0 ???

Am I doing something wrong ?

No. Can you show a complete and minimal example that reproduces the problem? So that I can try myself and see if there's a bug.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay.
Here is a simple test program to test both joysticks:

I am getting nothing from my two joysticks on Windows Vista.
I have a unique setup - two PS2 Dual Shock joysticks...
Both joysticks are recognized by Vista as standard game controllers.
(i checked in Control Panel)

Hope you can fix this issue soon.

It works fine for me.

Maybe there's a problem with DualShock joysticks, I remember someone having a similar problem on this forum.

Hi,

These two joysticks are recognized by Vista as standard game controllers.
(no drivers)
This is should work in SFML 1.4+SVN but it does not.

How are you handling joysticks on Vista OS ??

The same way as with any other Windows OS.

Maybe you can find a non-DualShock joystick to test? Or a non-Vista Windows? :D

Hi,

This joystick setup works in SDL 1.2, why not working in SFML 1.4+SVN ???

There's obviously a bug in SFML, and I'm just trying to identify the source of the problem (OS, joystick, ...).

Repeating that you expect it to work won't help me to fix this bug.

It will be hard to fix, as I have no Vista and no DualShock joystick to reproduce the problem.

What if you only plug one joystick?

Hi,

I am a programmer, like you but not as skilled.

I have tried everything to get this to work, but it does not work.
(I tried with just one controller, nothing)

Google: "Vista Joystick programming" or something.
The system calls for joystick polling are different on Vista.
(just a guess)

And you should really have both XP and Vista OSs considering your developing a state of the art 2d game engine...

Hi,

I bought a regular Logitech USB joystick and tested it on Vista OS using SFML.

Joysticks are not working at all on Vista OS and SFML.

Please fix!!!
