To quote: Up to four controllers are supported at once, and key mappings are completely configurable, as well as the analog sticks, which are currently emulated as digital key presses.

Important - Due to the non-standard protocol that the controllers use to communicate with the host, this application requires root access.

157w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has unveiled a video today showcasing the new Sorcerer's Lair Table for ZEN Pinball on PSN.

To quote: Today we are unveiling Sorcerer's Lair, a brand new ZEN Pinball table! It has been awhile since our last blog post, but we hope you have been enjoying Marvel Pinball and keeping your skills sharp on other ZEN Pinball tables.

All eight of our studio pinball teams have been hard at work over the past few months developing new tables.

Set in an ancient Citadel that is controlled by an evil Sorcerer, you play as a brother and sister pair who find themselves caught in the Sorcerer's spells and traps.

It is up to you and your ghost sidekick, Whisper, to take down skeletons, spiders and ghosts as you try to defeat the Sorcerer and restore peace to the Citadel.





This fantasy themed table is full of hidden modes and secret unlocks, so it will take some time to really discover the intricacies of Sorcerer's Lair.

As you have come to expect from every ZEN Pinball table, there is no shortage of interactive 3D objects, multiple modes of play, secret unlocks, online multiplayer competition...
 

Video: EveryAir - PS3 Games on iPhone, iPad, iPod iOS Devices!

164w ago - Today the EveryAir blog (linked above) has been updated with news and a video courtesy of pandaelves demonstrating EveryAir running PS3 Games via iPhone, iPad, and iPod iOS devices.

To quote: With a little wrangling of hardware and software, we were able to put together a demo of how to play PS3 games on an iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The trick is to connect a capture device and a USB mouse/keyboard device to the PS3. The capture device sends video data to the PC, and the USB keyboard/mouse sends the button presses.

On the PC itself, you run a custom build of everyAir which understands custom gestures and pipes the input to the PC which then sends it to the PS3 via the input interpreter. More details are described in the video.

TLDR version: We used some off the shelf hardware and everyAir to allow you to play PS3 games on any iOS device.

Q&A:

Q: What's the overall picture for how this works?
