Several input devices (keyboards, mice, wheels, joysticks…), several bluetooth dongles…
I’m thinking to make the sixaxis emulator capable of emulating several sixaxis at the same time, and reading several input devices at the same time (several mice, several keyboards…).
The emuclient process (responsible for grabbing input events) will connect to several emu processes (responsible for connecting and sending data to the PS3).
The bad thing is that the SDL 1.2 is not designed to handle multiple mice/keyboards (unlike joysticks). For mice and keyboards, the origin of an event can’t be known.
With the coming SDL 1.3, it seems that multiple mice can be handled at the same time thanks to the merge of the ManyMouse library.
I looked closer to the source code, and it seems that multiple keyboard can be handled by the SDL 1.3 too!
EDIT 12/06: the multi-mouse / multi-keyboard support has been removed from the trunk of the SDL library. It will be re-added in a near future => the multiple sixaxis emulator is postponed.trademarks
