    RetroArch - BB10

    [PROJECT]

    We're back! Development on RetroArch will continue for the playbook and BB10. This time around, there are a few ground rules:

    • no mention of donations. I just want to see the community happy.
    • square pusher and I have worked out our differences and I will be collaborating with him. The aforementioned war is to be considered a misunderstanding and be dropped.
    • be nice to squarepusher as its his baby we are working on, and if I were in his shoes I would have been defensive.


    any violation of said rules will result in a reported post and have it removed.

    As an end user it acts as an all-in-one emulator. So you can play GBA games or old SNES games on your phone

    Is it possible to make the wiimote work on the PlayBook? There has been some talk about controllers that use keystrokes might work, but I don't know what the wiimote uses.

    No. Controllers that use keystrokes WILL work as the code just needs to treat one keypress as "button pressed", and the other as "button released". But the device is only sending standard keystrokes. The PBOS doesn't have profiles for "proper" controllers and you cannot add them either.

    Basically it's a lot like iOS was. In fact the keyboard mode is something the steelseries manual says is intended for use with iOS devices.

    But hey that can be good for us considering they only sold millions of those silly little iOS devices...

    If they all followed a basic standard in terms of keypresses sent (and they would be fools not to), enabling one should enable *all* controllers that use this method. For the PlayBook it really can be a "game changer" in terms of playability.

    Why do you need to cheat anyway?
    It's best not to cheat and when you finish the game be proud.
