    It looks like you're unable to use the controls, it shows mirrors your PC screen?
    If it was ever updated to allow control mapping, that would be awesome.

    There's also this:

    Linux support only though and I haven't seen anything that uses it yet.
    I hope when they add Windows support someone will make a mirror driver with it :)
    I feel like the gamepad's low resolution will pose a problem though. PC games really aren't optimized to run at 800x480, text and GUI will probably be really tiny.

    Yeah it really sucks this never went anywhere; I was really hoping to use the gamepad as a pc device (it's the most comfortable controller I've ever used.)

    I think something like game streaming / sharing over twitch would be even better. Imagine having a friend stream their PC via Twitch but with the two of you using a program that allows the second player to control all Player 2 actions from their house. That would be awesome!

    It'd be like a glorified, not limited to 1 console Share button.

    There was a pretty long discussion about this about a year ago. Let's see...here we are.

    Haven't heard from it since. And going by what's posted, this is more a thread asking what's going on in the field rather than an actual update of anything. :unsure:


    Working, yes. But FULLY working? No. Most of the 48 minutes before are spent on explaining that things aren't standardized, which makes developing hard to do. They got it to work in the end (as shown in the video), but IIRC, a common problem was that it went out of sync pretty quickly.
