Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

The lack of Joystick is my bad... I need to get back onto USBJoystick again and get the full keyboard and mouse emulation finished.

Re: ADFFS 2.69

Ahh... Not sure why I thought it was Joystick SWI! I must have assumed a 1991 re-release was for the A3010, but I am a year too early! You are quite right, it is Joy. I do return zero if the emulate joy behaviour is off, but not if it is on and there is no mapped stick. I have fixed this now in my l...

Re: ADFFS 2.69

Speaking of regressions, with USBJoystick loaded (any version) and no Joystick attached (haven't tried it with one attached), load Pacmania [learning curve version] and watch the level selection screen go nuts when you try to start a game. I believe it's using the Acorn interface, so is possibly ge...

Re: ADFFS 2.69

Following on from my earlier issues with crashes, I thought I’d do a spot of re-testing. I’ve updated my Pi B+ to the firmware from 5th Nov and RISC OS 5.27 (built 16 Nov). I have tried using ADFFS 2.69 and 2.70b, but I can’t get Pacmania, E-Type or Saloon Cars to run at all. With previous versions ...

USBJoystick 0.13

USBJoystick is a USB joystick driver for RISC OS 5. It supports USB HID-compliant joystick (or gamepad, or steering wheel etc.), including the XBOX 360 wired and wireless controllers. It provides the legacy Acorn, RTFM and SerialPort SWI interfaces, so existing games can be used with modern controll...

Re: RiscPC help

To get the supervisor at boot, hold SHIFT and * (on the numeric keypad) as you power up.

Re: USB Joystick driver

Excellent, thanks for trying it. I only had time to put it together and try my test application!

I need to make more mods to allow me to share channels on one axis. I also need to give Saloon Cars a proper try. Hopefully I will have a chance this week.

I hope you can remove your workarounds!

Re: USB Joystick driver

I have just published version 0.12 to the initial post in this thread. I have removed the floats - maybe the FP aborts will go away?

I’ve also started on I/O module ADC support, but it is not yet complete.

Re: USB Joystick driver

Interesting. I could come up with some more extensions to USBJoystick to handle this (and therefore similar) devices. The completely thorough solution would be to provide some sort of binary interface to allow mini driver modules to register. Or maybe the data format above could be described in some...

Re: USB Joystick driver

Phew - glad to hear it! I've got my basic first draft of the I/O podule ADC emulation up-and-running, but I need to throw together a BASIC test utility, as I have nothing else to test it with. I think covering the official OSByte calls and BASIC's ADVAL command should be enough, but until we try it ...
