[GUI/WIN] Control tab is shown in GUI settings

Reported by: rootfather Owned by: bgK
Priority: normal Component: GUI

Cc: Game:


Despite the "Control" tab and especially the pointer settings are relevant only for (portable) devices that have no physical mouse and need to emulate one, this tab and setting is visible in the current Windows builds.

I think this setting and the whole tab should be not visible when running on systems that have a physical mouse and no support for emulation via a joystick or a touchpad.

Unfortunately, I am currently unable to test on Linux too.

May I bring this back to your attention? This bug is still present on the current codebase.

See PR 935 ( for discussion on ways to fix this bug.
The difficulty here is that we can use joystick on Windows (or other desktop platforms), and thus the "Control" tab may be relevant. Thus we cannot just always remove it on Windows.

The joystick settings are now only visible when joystick support is enabled (num_joystick >= 0) (PR1088).
