MultiJoy Plugin For DarkBASIC Professional

Saturday, December 20, 2008

One of the problems with Dark BASIC Professional is that it doesn't originally support multiple joysticks. MultiJoy Plugin gives you an easy and efficient set of new commands to support multiple joysticks/joypads/input devices in your game or program. It supports any windows compatible controller, up to 16 devices, both analog and digital, up to 6 axis and up to 256 buttons per device. Originally designed to work with DarkBASIC Professional, it's compatible with DarkBASIC Classic, and it can be used with any other programming language that supports DLL calls. It includes the JOY SCANCODE and JOY STATE commands, wich are great for games with customizable input. Once installed in Dark BASIC Pro, you don't need any external files, DLL calls or wrapper functions to make it work. MultiJoy Plugin will avoid some nasty bugs and speed loss from the original Dark BASIC Professional joystick commands. Also, there are extra commands wich are very useful, and not present in Dark BASIC Professional. Here's a list of the current commands:

Joystick/Joypad commands:

JOY START
JOY LAST
JOY EXIST
JOY LAST BUTTON
JOY LAST AXIS
JOY POLL
JOY POLL ALL
JOY X AXIS
JOY Y AXIS
JOY Z AXIS
JOY AXIS
JOY X
JOY Y
JOY BUTTON
JOY ANY BUTTON
JOY SCANCODE
JOY STATE
JOY DIR
JOY SET DEADZONE
JOY POV

MultiJoy limits:

Number of devices: 16
Number of axis: 6
Number of buttons: 256


Extra commands:

RANGE
WRAP

GET STRING$
SEARCH STRING
PROCESS STRING QUEUE$
STRING WORD WRAP$
CRYPT STRING$
CRYPT STRING TO CHR$
UNCRYPT STRING$
MAKE FILE FROM STRING

MultiJoy Plugin can be bought online with PayPal for only $10. After you send the payment you will receive it by email. The price is fair, and it will help me continue working on this plugin and also other projects that may be useful for the DarkBASIC community. All registered users will get free updates, and they are allowed to use the plugin in their free or commercial programs.
