I tested on a Vista laptop: everything is working fine (I have a crappy no-brand USB joystick). Too bad :?

I did some test!

My joystick is actually detected by sfml but events aren't catched. So you should try to find why :D.

Edit: Logitech DUAL ACTION

Hi,

I've got two Logitech Dual Action USB joysticks now.
(Spent about $50 already trying to help you fix this bug)
They do not work with SFML+SVN and my Windows Vista OS.
(OS is Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 1 32bit)

Again, the two Logitech joysticks
are recognized by the OS
under "Control Panel" -> "Game Controllers"

Both of the Logitech joysticks are working.
I have testing using SDL 1.2 and also tried them in all of my emulators.

Please make this highest priority...

Stop it please. One more message like this one and I'll really stop working on this bug. It doesn't help at all, it just irritates me more and more. Trust me, I'm currently doing my best and I really don't need such disrespectful messages.
I'm just a passionate developer who spends some free time trying to make a good free library, not a company to which you paid a 1K$ license for professional support.

Sorry - I did not mean to offend you...

I have learning disability called Autism.

When you have something to test on Vista let me know
and I'll drop what I am doing to help...

I've said this before, so let me be perfectly clear: You can't use or ® unless the name actually is a (registered) trademark.

It's not just me being mean, that's how it actually works. You do realize that the holder of the Tetris trademark (which is registered) could theoretically sue you for that? At the very least, shut down your website should you redistribute content violating their trademark.

Do you have a source? I'm not saying you are wrong because I don't know much about this but I would like to.

According to this site http://www.firstwriter.com/copyright/symbol.shtml, you only have to register to use ®.

Quote
To qualify for use of the registered trade mark symbol (®) you must register your trade mark with the appropriate authority in your country, whereas the trade mark symbol (™) can be applied to any symbol you are using as a trade mark. Use of the copyright symbol is more similar to use of the trade mark symbol, as work does not need to be registered in order to use it.


Quote
It is often illegal to apply the "®" symbol to a trade mark which has not been registered.

That's correct, it's why I put (registered) in parenthesis. He uses ® too in a lot of places.

However, even if TetriBattle3 100%™ isn't a registered trademark and thus it's legal to use ™, it's certainly not legal to use a name so similar to Tetris which is a registered trademark of The Tetris Company LLC, who, according to Wikipedia, "have vigorously policed and enforced their rights and have sent cease-and-desist letters to websites that infringe Tetris":

Quote
Due to the popularity of Tetris, there have also been many knock-off and lookalike games on the Internet. In order to stop this infringement, The Tetris Company and Tetris Holding have vigorously policed and enforced their rights and have sent cease-and-desist letters to websites that infringe Tetris.


I didn't say anything about the game being a Tetris clone, even, that's understandable for a beginner programmer to recreate. Just that he shouldn't use symbols he has no clue about what they mean. It's a very common newbie habit to tack ©, ® and ™ on every name because it makes them look "cool" and "professional" (ironically, it does the exact opposite).

Yeah that sounds correct. However the link I was refering to claims you can use the © as well without registering. What's your thought on that?

Copyright is applied automatically to everything you create, regardless of whether you use the © symbol or not. Usually it's used very conservatively to remind people of this fact, but it isn't needed. So when I see excessive (usually combined) use of ©, ® and ™ it just tells me the person doesn't really know what they mean.
