I tried to find out on my own but it seems like I am doing it wrong.
I coded a “joystick mapping tool”, it basically dumps all inputManager.getJoysticks() and their respective Axis and Buttons.
It then listens using a rawInputListener() and uses .println() to dump pressed keys.
My Problem was, I was to lazy to mess around with JInput so I simply used jME for that.
I now limit the FPS to 10, but I did not find a way to remove the window completely.
If I use ``` viewPort and guiViewport.setEnabled(false); `, I get a “NullRenderer” exception and this might be the wrong approach anyway.
So how would be the proper way? Which Application should I extend? (As HeadlessServerApplication does NOT have any Input.
PS: Some SDK usage question, is there an easy way to remove nifty from the libs? As all the jars’ seem to be bundled to jme-libs. Do I have to create an own “jme-libs-without-nifty” and manually add all jars?
“ignores all input – no input handling.”
Does that mean that the default flycam is disabled then?
I thought there is no inputManager and it’s Listeners at all, which is my problem.
Edit: Yep, inputManager is null when running as Server, hence my question here =)
If you’re looking for joysticks only, you should be able to initialize InputManager with a DummyKeyInput, DummyMouseInput and JInputJoyInput.
Creating JInputJoyInput does not actually require a jME3 context, so this should work just fine.
I gave it a try and the recognition of the Joysticks work fine, but I don’t receive any events.
I looked into the Sourcecode to find out that e.g. the lwjgl Render uses
com.jme3.system.NativeLibraryLoader.loadNativeLibrary("jinput", true);, which is not known by my SDK (I guess that’s because there was some refactoring of
Now I wonder if it’s even the problem of JInput Missing (as I wouldn’t expect any fuctionality of inputManager at all) or if I am missing something different?
Try JmeSystem.initialize(). Make sure the AppSettings object you pass to it has setUseJoysticks enabled.
Doesn’t change a thing
I also tried creating a new JmeContext, that lead to some Logger Output from extracting natives, but the same behavior as before
Edit: Even without creating an Context and simply calling JmeSystem leads to extraction.
Maybe you forgot to call
It works now!! Thank you
It even works without JmeSystem.initialize, but that is possibly because the lib has already been extracted?
Probably. You might still want to call it just to be safe.
