This controls communication with the Gamepad, internally called VPAD by this library. It uses the VPADBASE library internally.


Name Prototype Description
VPADGetLcdMode int VPADGetLcdMode(int padnum, VPADDisplayMode *lcdmode); Gets LCD mode of gamepad and stores it in lcdmode
VPADSetLcdMode int VPADSetLcdMode(int padnum, VPADDisplayMode lcdmode); Sets LCD mode of gamepad based on lcdmode
VPADRead int VPADRead(int padnum, VPADData *buffer, int num_datasets, int *err); Stores raw controller data in buffer for the specified Gamepad
VPADShutdown void VPADShutdown(void); A deprecated function that was supposed to shut down the Gamepad.


VPAD Display Mode

Can be gotten using VPADGetLcdMode().

typedef enum {
    DISPLAY_MODE_STANDBY = 0,       /* This is probably the mode you can set as a user in HOME - Turn display off */
    DISPLAY_MODE_OFF = 1,                /* This turns off the display completely, the gamepad can be used as a pure input controller */
    DISPLAY_MODE_DEFAULT   = 0xFF /* Default mode */
} VPADDisplayMode;


Can be gotten using VPADRead(), num_datasets seems to control the max amount of "datasets" to keep. A single dataset containing raw controller data is 0xAC bytes. The first three words of a datset are bitmasks of the flags listed below.
