The controllerdb doesn’t use a platform check for mfi controllers, but a seperate define (
SDL_JOYSTICK_MFI). From what I can tell, mappings are shared on mfi platforms (ios and tvos).
When loading custom mappings for such platforms, should one use
platform:tvOS? Does something like a
platform:MFI exist? Or is
platform:iOS valid for all MFI platforms (tvOS included)?
If the mapping is compatible with both platforms, don’t bother adding this restriction.
platform field should match the value returned by
SDL_GetPlatform : https://wiki.libsdl.org/SDL_GetPlatform .
List of all value for
platform is available in the source file: https://hg.libsdl.org/SDL/file/tip/src/SDL.c#l395 .
I thought the platform field was required. It isn’t?
My bad, it depends on how you give the mapping to SDL.
You don’t need a
platform value if you add mapping to
SDL_gamecontrollerdb.h and compile SDL yourself, or if you pass a mapping to
You need a
platform field if you use
OK Yes that was my understanding. The mappings will come from a file. I will be using
platform:iOS for now, as tvos is not in the list of platforms. I’ll cross that bridge if we get there
