Android Controller Support
You can play Tallowmere for Android with a touchscreen, controller, or keyboard.
Version 350.7 (27 February 2018) supports the following Android controllers:
My controller doesn't work!
If your controller doesn't seem to be working with the Tallowmere Android version, I can create a controller profile to add to Tallowmere for you, but I'll need your help.
To create a new controller profile, I need to know what your controller's buttons and joysticks internal ID numbers correspond to.
To figure this out, I've created a custom app called Mobile Controller Debugger.
Download Mobile Controller Debugger
Please download and install the APK here:
MobileControllerDebugger_v1.0.1.apk (17 MB)
You will need to allow 3rd-party apps to be installed; should be an option in your Android Settings > Security section.
Mobile Controller Debugger uses the same InControl plugin that Tallowmere uses, with some text to detect controllers that aren't in its database.
Example screenshot of what Mobile Controller Debugger looks like:
Once your controller is connected, launch Mobile Controller Debugger. Press any button; the "Active device" text should change.
What I need from you is:
Please fill out the list below for your controller (might be easiest to copy-and-paste into an email). You'll have to press each button and move each stick and write down what the screen says.
Once all the above is filled out, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will interpret what you've written and create an InControl profile for your controller. I'll then build another InControl-based app containing the new profile for you to test.
There might be a little back-and-forthing between us to get it right. Once that looks good, last step will be for me to create a Tallowmere test demo for you to try, just to confirm that your controller works as it should, and then finally I'll add the new controller profile to Tallowmere properly and release an update to everyone.
