📕 Description [en]

SDLHack is a wrapper for SDL which lets you force fullscreen games to minimize. It also allows you to disable joystick detection.

This is a simple LD_PRELOAD wrapper for SDL which enables switching away from a fullscreen game.

🚧️ Installation [fr]

INSTALLATION :

To install it on x86 and amd64, run:
sudo ./install.sh

To uninstall, simply delete /usr/bin/sdlhack, /usr/lib/libsdlhack.so, /usr/lib32/libsdlhack.so, and /usr/lib64/libsdlhack.so.


LANCEMENT :

To start a game from the command line, run: sdlhack GAME
e.g. sdlhack /usr/games/PenumbraOverture/penumbra

You can also edit the game's menu entry or desktop icon to run sdlhack. Simply add 'sdlhack' to the beginning of the the command line field.

If you want to switch away while in the game, pause it and press Ctrl-Z to minimize the game window. If you don't pause, the game may continue to run in the background.

You can set the trigger key with the -k option, e.g.
sdlhack -k ctrl-alt-shift-q GAME

You may also use sdlhack to disable joystick detection. Some systems incorrectly detect a joystick on startup when one is not present which can affect gameplay.
To disable the joystick, run:
sdlhack -d GAME

To save defaults in ~/.sdlhackrc, use the -s option, e.g.
sdlhack -s -k alt-tab
