- Following up on the DualShock 4 (DS4) PlayStation 4 / PS4 Controller Teardown
, today PlayStation 4 developer InhexSTER
has made available a DS4 to XInput Wrapper alongside a video of the PS4 DualShock 4 Controller on PC in action below.
To quote: Hello guys, i am new here but i want to share a tool I made for Dualshock 4 controllers. I was inspired by the tool made by Scarlet.Crush for DS3.
My tool works in similar fashion and is based on source code from DS3 Scp Tool.
It works though without messing with the original drivers for DS4. Uses DirectInput to XInput mapping. You still need to install drivers for SCP virtual bus device and possible X360 Controller drivers.
Currently all buttons/Axis work like they should. No support for rumble and controlling light to indicate controller number.
Shortly I will make a video demonstrating the tool.
DS4 to XInput Mapping tool (Play any game with DS4 on PC)
: After looking into disabling original controller, so it wouldn't show up in games / do double input, I think it's not possible with using default windows drivers. Rumble and lightbar also require some more reverse engineering of USB communication.
So first thing it would require actually capturing data sent between PS4 and DS4, so we need to wait until it's released.
Second thing I most likely will not be able to capture that data myself, I don't have any means to do it.
Third this approach would require installing custom drivers for USB and Bluetooth, just like with DS3 (unsigned drivers install is a bit tricky)
I also don't mind people with Computer Engineering skills joining in. I myself have only basic knowledge of hardware, my degree focuses on software.
Finally, in related news CronusDEV
announced (via cronusmax.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140586&p=959762&viewfull=1#post959762) that CronusMAX FW v1.34 is released and includes DualShock 4 fully working XBox 360, PS3 and PC.
To quote: After a hard weekend of development we are happy to release the world's first fully working DualShock 4 Controller mod. All features are currently available in wired mode. Wireless mode is unlocked too but currently only includes the main button inputs (no rumble, led bar, gyro, ACCX, ACCY, ACCZ Support)
Make sure you have the latest version of Gtuner Update (v2.06 at time of writing) and then update your CronusMAX firmware to v1.34 now.
We are also currently working on the XBOX ONE Controller, Dualshock 4 Full Wireless Support, Keyboard & Mouse Support for the PS4 and XBOX ONE. Very busy times ahead
