SDL Configure Controls, Joystick / Keyboard

Recommended Posts

I always knew I'd have to write a configure joystick routine to record and return desired user input to be used for player controls.

This example UDF is mainly to help people just getting started, who have never written a configure joystick routine.

 but it's also a dialog that will setup and load custom controls for as many players as you like.  Just try -12 players for example.


Example using Configure Controls to setup controls for Tanks that ride on the desktop.

Damn I broke the jump shadow before the video, ha. I fixed it before the source upload.


Having seen plenty of configure joystick functions from a user stand point, I had some criteria.

1. All players controls should be accessible from a single call to the configure function.  Navigating back a dialog just to assign the next player is bullshit.

2. Can handle analog and digital controls, and not become broken b/c the joystick is special.  Testing please let me know!

3. GUI but only Nes joystick GUI at this point.


1. I should be able to detect when the GUIHotkey changes and focus the next field. A joystick does this already.

2. After seeing better written UDFs I am still considering better variable names.

3. When you can assign all types of input devices to a single player controls, you allow for multiplayer single player.  B/c of the re-write using both GUIHotkey controls and input fields, I have decided to wait and add this feature latter.  The data is setup to handle it, but the configurecontrols dialog creates all the fields based on the first control type.  Meaning at this point only one input type per player.


Note: These scripts require an SDL folder environment!

Both tank and configure controls have a graphics pack. It's best to just download the Source Folder.

If you like this idea, I encourage you to say something. It's a good way to keep me working on this.

I think I dropped this tank project for at least a year.

fixed, thank you.

Player Control file syntax, 3 numbers per control.

int: type of control: 0keyboard 0 < joystickid

int: button type: 10button, 20..9999axis, 10000..19999hat

int: action state such as keyid, buttonid, axis intensity, hat state


1 // joystick 0

10 // joystick button

7 // joystick button id 7

2 // joystick 1

20 // 20 axis 0

-20000 // axis 0 less then -19999

Note if you have a joystick just spamming some axis, lower the axis max until the problem stops, through the configure control dialog

      Hi AutoIt Programmers!, I just looking for a way to change entered keys in English to Russian keys and reverse, i must clear for you to understand. For example:
      I write keys on keyboard and i forgot to change input language and then the result will be: Dkflbvbh (Thing we write in fact) ====> Владимир (Thing we want)
      And reverse: Владимир  ====> Dkflbvbh

      Is there any solution without writing constant for each words? for example dlls or WinAPIs.

      i searched the forum for something near, but with no success...
      I have Combobox control with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style with some items (for example (one, two, nine).
      When i want to select the item, using keyboard, the items are selected only on First letter base (for example when i type "on", Nine is selected).
      Is there some trick to force the combobox with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style to accept more than the First letter during selecting the items from the list?
      Mi wanted result is the same as for example - when you type "fir" on the desktop, Firefox is automatically selected.
      Thank you so much.

      What's new section:
      Snowman_Sky is game using MapIt engine.  MapIt will evolve here for a little bit.
      Download: [ http://songersoft.com/programming/Snowman_Sky.zip ]
      Video demonstrating new sprite_sheet class and weather effect.
      Working on the Class section of the Character Sheet.
      Which is what makes multiclassing possible.

      Changing the value of Class will load the stored value for XP.  Lvl will be updated to the XP tier.
      Hit points are then rolled for each level of all learned classes.  Hit dice are specific to each class and a Constitution modifier is added to each roll of hit die.

      MapIt is a tile world editor.  MapIt was built around the concept of reversing Dragon Warrior map images.  MapIt can take image input and produce a tile and world array.  
      Changing and replacing tile / world data is easy.  B/c tile world editor.

      CTRL+R in image above to signal replace tile action and I use "G" to Get the tile under mouse.
      A full list of hotkeys can be assigned in the: Help Menu\Hotkeys
      MapParser is a C++ project that scans images for unique tiles. 
      MapIt can be downloaded without MapParser. MapParser can be toggled off in the Scan_Image dialog. Without MapParser, MapIt will use the Scan_Tiles() function written in AutoIt ; which is 100 * slower Idk. If MapParser.exe will not run for you:      Installing Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 should fix it: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145   
      You can start with example world and tiles.
      Example world was made following these steps:
      Started with a tile map image of DragonWarrior3 town of: Reeve From MapIt World Menu \ New \ Scan_Image dialog, I set the area to exclude the key legend to the far right of image. After scanning the map image to world and tile array.  I removed a few of the map artifacts.  More work could be done on this world; removing unwanted tiles, but it is fine for now. I saved my world to disk.  This creates folder: Worldname: Containing folder of Tiles and a Worldname.txt. Using The Gimp, I edited some tiles to have a transparent color: Stairs, Trees, Desk Tables, Chest-of-drawers, Chairs, Signs, Doors, Beds. I changed the world layers to 2: World Menu \ Properties. F9 Finds all selected tile on current layer and changes to a new selected tile on new layer. I used F9 to change all Trees on layer: 0 to Trees on layer: 1. Then I used F9 to change all Trees on layer: 0 to Grass on layer: 0  
      In this video you can see how I used the Tile Menu \ Replace From Disk option to remap tile images to my custom tiles.  Conveniently my tiles already have a transparent pixel.
      See video for how that was done:
      To use the example world:
      First unzip the world save file: http://songersoft.com/programming/mapit/worlds/Reeve_Swapped.zip From the World Menu: choose \Load Navigate to the Reeve_Swapped.txt located in the extracted zip. Or you can scan any image.
      The map images I used are here: http://www.realmofdarkness.net/dq/games/nes/dw3/maps/world
      For download, videos, and example of created world file data; please visit the MapIt webpage: http://songersoft.com/programming/mapit/mapit_about.phtml

      I am currently developing NPCs they cannot yet be added.  Items only exist in database.  Enemies only in sprite.
      This project has been on the shelf a couple years.  I decided to learn DLLStruct at the beginning of this project.  I'm not sure if using them was a good idea or not.  I'm open to converting them to pure array and Enum.
      Developing multiplayer system UDP clients / server.  I'm looking for some advice on how to setup the packets.
      I was thinking the best way was to convert packets to Hex and convert back at the destination.  That's probably the way I have it setup.  Anyhow they all talk to each other, clients and server.  Where the avatars appear on screens doesn't work.
      My Enums are used for data members of arrays.  I exclude the 'g' even though they are all Global.  I put the array names they describe in the Enum: ePlayer_x.  In some cases I abbreviate the array name; aWorld_info probably has: aWorld_info[eWi_layers]
      Most gaming things are done better with a nice engine: GameMaker, Unity, Unreal.
      My buddy made a time machine in BASIC.  I know you can make a better time machine in other languages, but there is something to be said for doing it in BASIC.
      Many things are ugly with this, just broken, or extraneous blocks of code I threw together for some one-off task.
      I put this here to see if it generates interest.  I'm happy to change this thing around.  I do many things in favor of speed, but I know some of it's crap.
      Package contains a Server and a Map Editor.  The Map Editor is meant to be able to add and edit:
      World Files, worlds have 2 layers. 
      0.txt background 1.txt forground. The files are formatted with a header: width, height, and the largest tile number.  The largest tile number is used to pad the world files.  So that the world files could be edited by hand.
      WorldN Tile X_Y.txt (a subset cord of tile to specify frame):  World Tile X_Y is stored in a separate file per layer so that the world layer files remain pretty.
      World Directory Structure: Example: World_1_Overworld.
      In folder above we can notice only layer 1 has a Tile_X_Y file.  This is because atm only trees use the system and trees are foreground.
      Areas: areas are to subdivide worlds in effort to section the worlds and divide lists for: hotspots, NPCs, Items, and area properties such as: Out-of-Bounds: Destination and Repeat Tile, enemy encounters, etc..
      Areas have: Global Enum $eArea_x, $eArea_y, $eArea_w, $eArea_h, _                        ; Area World Bound Rect         $eArea_ob_tile, $eArea_ob_world, $eArea_ob_x, $eArea_ob_y, _     ; Out of Bounds Repeat Tile and World Destination if Out of Bounds         $eArea_hotspots, $eArea_items, $eArea_NPCs ; Total Hotspots per Area, Items and People Hotspots: hotspots are locations on the board that relocate the player
      Global Enum $eHotspot_x, $eHotspot_y, _; the spot in world that moves player $eHotspot_dest_world, $eHotspot_dest_x, $eHotspot_dest_y; the destination world and position Board: A rectangle of world tiles is pre-drawn on aBoard[layer_max] centered on player, you can change the size to consume less RAM but requires drawing world to board more often.
      Animated Background: Before anything is drawn a moving BG image is drawn.  Creating beautiful water AI.  So if no tiles are drawn from world, BG water animation is shown.
      Map Editor should be able to test all of the systems of the game: Player, Worlds, Areas, Hotspots, NPCs, Items, Shops, Battles, Netplay, etc..
      (Not all systems exist yet)

      It's going to say that the files might be malicious.  Probably b/c of the DLLs and I hosted an unmoderated forum from the site years ago were people posted malicious links.  Let me know if it's malicious!
      PS: I tried posting the source but I keep getting errors.  I think the source might be too large to post. 6308 lines.  Idk.
