    Introduction

    VitaPad allows you to use your PSVITA as a wireless PC controller. It supports Windows (both 32 and 64 bit) and Linux (port made by nyorem). In the future i'm planning to add also Mac Os X support and also add a proper fiddler for vJoy.

    Footage (thanks to kood k)


    Usage

    • Install VPK file on PSVITA
    • Open VitaPad on PSVITA
    • Open VitaPad on PC
    • Insert the IP showed on PSVITA on PC

    Controls Mapping

    You can edit your controls mapping by editing the XML file inside the client folder (windows.xml / linux.ml)

    Default mapping:

    DPAD = WASD
    Cross,Square,Triangle,Circle = IJKL
    L Trigger = Ctrl
    R Trigger = Spacebar
    Start = Enter
    Select = Shift
    Left Analog = DKeys
    Right Analog = 8,6,4,2
    Touchscreen = Mouse movement
    Retrotouch = Left/Right click

    Credits

    nyorem for the Linux client port.

    It would be great If you could get Xinput emulation in there.

    With a L2/R2 grip it would be just like using a playstation controller.

    I tested this homebrew with a PSVITA TV using a Dualshock 4 <.<. So bad that PSVITA TV can't handles R2 and L2 for Dualshocks :(

    Will it be able to emulate Xinput or Dinput in the future?

    Damn, guess I can give up my idea to duct tape a phone to the Vita and use it to play superior emulators with the Vita. Unless you can make a Windows Phone version, of course :tpi:

    "Left Analog = DKeys".
    What're DKeys?
    Also, nice to know that my Vita can now function as a glorified $200 Sony controller. Totally makes up for the lack of support from Sony. Arigatou, Rinne-san.
