PSA: Oculus Software can crash your machine

Attention! For once I have something important to say 😆 I made an interesting discovery yesterday (thanks to the lovely people on the Discord server, you’re the best! 😚) and thought it deserves a bit of exposure. You may or may not know that Oculus uses and redistributes their own copy of the ViGEmBus (and hides this

FireShock – PS3 Navigation Controller Test

Just a quick update from the development dungeon; today I implemented support for the PlayStation 3 Navigation Controller in FireShock. Here’s a short demonstration 😀 By the time of this writing the branch isn’t public yet. Stay tuned!

Rogue XInput Capabilities Bug – Part 2

This is the continuation of Rogue XInput Capabilities Bug – Part 1 Right, let’s tie up loose ends and discover a proper fix!

New ViGEm Installer

Merry Christmas y’all! 😃 I have a small yet powerful Christmas present for my trusty users. As you might have noticed, the installation of the ViGEm Bus was a bit rough on both the documentation and the procedure itself. I’ve experimented a lot with conventional and unconventional methods, even with my beloved Advanced Installer. But in

O how joyfully

Greetings, Public announcement: I am not dead. End of announcement. Last few weeks I had to devote more time towards my job and keeping the Christmas money rolling in 😜 Private life also wanted a slice of my cake of time, didn’t want to share but you know… can’t always escape to the code cave.
