Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Do you know how to connect to an Android device using "adb", the "Android Debug Bridge" command line tool? If so, you could watch/monitor the keyboard events using "adb logcat", and see which events are send when pressing the cursor keys. I did it with adblink. In the menu of adblink you can open t...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Just tested RnD on my Fire TV Stick. The exit game error (using MENU and BACK button) no longer occurs. Especially the last one is strange: After leaving the screen keyboard, the Fire TV remote control does not produce joystick and game controller events anymore, but sends keyboard events! If you se...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

But the keyboard somehow refuses to work with R'n'D, while it works fine with other apps?
Yes, the keyboard is working fine. Only the arrow keys where not working in the last RnD android version.

I´ll test the new version later today.

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

But: Another thing I forgot to add for the latest development version, which is required to use the new game controller configuration stuff (else the game will exit with an error message): You need some new graphics to be placed in the main "graphics/gfx_classic". I've added it as an attachment. Th...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Must give a quick feedback for the new pc version. Just copied the new .exe and the new sdl2.dll into the RnD directory.
All is working fine. The xbox controller is working fanstatic. I feel retreated into the good old amiga days. :mrgreen:

... I love it!

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

For the new game controller stuff to be working, you will most probably need a more recent version of the SDL2 library, as I don't know exactly at the moment which SDL version the last R'n'D release version is shipped with (but I think it's too old for the new game controller support to be working)...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

It's a Bluetooth keyboard, right? Does it also refuses to work immediately after (re)starting R'n'D? Or only after the screen keyboard mixed up the controller settings? No, it´s a normal wireless (2.4 G) keyboard/mouse combination. You can find the latest development version here: Thank you. I´ll t...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

I had to adjust the game controller calibration program for the Fire TV, to be able to skip unused game controller buttons in the calibration process (as the Fire TV's remote control obviously does not have all those axes and buttons that is available on a standard Xbox style game controller). (Ski...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Can you please put the direction control also on the d-pad?
In my opinion you can react faster in game with the d-pad as with the left-stick.

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

As you were able to run the current release R'n'D APK on your Fire TV, you might also have some knowledge (or might even just try) how to add a level set like "BD2K3" to the Android version on the Fire TV. The data folder should be something like "/.../Android/data/org.artsoft.rocksndiamonds/files/...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Nice! :) I did a first quick test on the FireTV and found immediately a problem. If you try to change the player name, the virt. keyboard pops up but you cant change the name. You didn´t see the actual name and any changes. If I leave the virt. keyboard all controller settings are lost. Only the d-p...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

WoW! That's a big step forward. I'm looking forward for the next release. :D I had also thought of a missing mapping file on the android version, because some emulators for the Raspberry Pi using mapping files to onfigure a controller. The mapping file should be accessible for future settings. I´m v...

Re: Suggestions for Joypad and Android

Too bad, but my programming skills lie 30 years back. But I'm good at testing programs :D

I am a computer freak since the Sinclair ZX81 :wink: and I would be glad to help you to test it on Android, Raspberry Pi or PC.
