Duplicated/conflicting GUIDs for the DragonRise/PC TWIN SHOCK controllers


#1

This is mainly a cross-post from: https://github.com/gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB/issues/202


Turns out that many generic Chinese controllers based on the same PC TWIN SHOCK board from DragonRise Inc. share the same USB vendor (0x0079) and product (0x0006) identifiers, but they also use slightly different button layouts, causing conflicts because the SDL2 gamepad GUID cannot distinguish between them.

My NGS Phantom mainly conflicts with Issue #86 in Linux, and the “G-Shark GS-GP702” in Windows. Funnily enough in macOS looks like the GUID is slightly different, for some reason.

These are the correct mappings for Linux, macOS and Windows:

03000000790000000600000010010000,NGS Phantom---LNX,a:b2,b:b3,x:b0,y:b1,back:b8,start:b9,leftstick:b10,rightstick:b11,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,dpup:h0.1,dpdown:h0.4,dpleft:h0.8,dpright:h0.2,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4,lefttrigger:b6,righttrigger:b7,platform:Linux,
03000000790000000600000007010000,NGS Phantom---MAC,a:b2,b:b3,x:b0,y:b1,back:b8,start:b9,leftstick:b10,rightstick:b11,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,dpup:h0.1,dpdown:h0.4,dpleft:h0.8,dpright:h0.2,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4,lefttrigger:b6,righttrigger:b7,platform:Mac OS X,
03000000790000000600000000000000,NGS Phantom---WIN,a:b2,b:b3,x:b0,y:b1,back:b8,start:b9,leftstick:b10,rightstick:b11,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,dpup:h0.1,dpdown:h0.4,dpleft:h0.8,dpright:h0.2,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a2,righty:a4,lefttrigger:b6,righttrigger:b7,platform:Windows,

I ship a game with these community mappings and I’m having trouble playing with my own controller because everything is subtly broken.

PS: Maybe @icculus can add some additional optional bits to tell them apart. Maybe by optionally matching by VID/PID/Version/Revision/Firmware instead of only VID/PID.

Maybe @Daniel_Gibson can post his gamepad output and see what is different.

Hello, as reported here: https://discourse.libsdl.org/t/different-game-controllers-with-the-same-guid/25773
I have two devices have the same GUID under Linux, same vendor/product id, but they’re not exactly the same. One is from Dragonrise, the other is actually from Microntek.
