#1242 closed defect (fixed)

ALL: Joystick problem

Reported by: SF/mulqvist Owned by: SF/khalek
Priority: normal Component: --Other--
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Both in ScummVM's own displays, and in Beneath a Steel Sky displays, the cursor/mousepointer keeps moving upwards by itself, until it reaches the top of the display. Using the arrow keys in ScummVM displays stops this behaviour, but in the BaSS displays nothing helps. After quitting ScummVM, the behaviour normalizes.

Starting ScummVM gives ther message "Using joystick: Microsoft PC-joystick driver". Disabling the joystick in ScummVM might solve the problem, but how to? The stick is properly calibrated, ie, the cursor is rock steady in all other games/apps.

Currently the only workaround is to remove your joystick. Either SDL's Windows joystick code is buggy, or we are not using it properly. In any case, I think supporting joysticks is of minor interest, and since it is causing troubles for so many people, I'd prefer to just disable it for now and maybe add a command line/ config option for it at a later point.

Try a recent Windows daily snapshot, joystick support is now disabled by default.

I think this can be considered fixed.
