A variable controlling whether the HIDAPI driver for PS3 controllers should be used.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_hints.h>




The variable can be set to the following values:

The default is the value of SDL_HINT_JOYSTICK_HIDAPI on macOS, and "0" on other platforms.

For official Sony driver (sixaxis.sys) use SDL_HINT_JOYSTICK_HIDAPI_PS3_SIXAXIS_DRIVER. See for an alternative driver on Windows.

This hint should be set before enumerating controllers.


This hint is available since SDL 3.0.0.
