    Default AntiMicro 2.6 Yields Greater Compatibility For Gamepads On Linux

    Phoronix: AntiMicro 2.6 Yields Greater Compatibility For Gamepads On Linux

    Released this week was a new update to AntiMicro, the GUI program for mapping keyboard keys and mouse controls to a gamepad, which is useful for games without any gamepad (or inadequate) support...

    Interesting - reminds me of a piece of software I wrote some time ago, in Python, which does a similar thing but on a lower level, without GUI:

    Cool, I might have to check this out. I've used xpadder in the past, but the last time I checked, it had been abandoned and wasn't being updated at all. Nice to see a version that is under active development.

    Tried to make a post before, but I think it failed. Project reminds me of similar software that I wrote, which does not depend on X libraries and purely the linux input and uinput api. Also works over the network, which makes for quite some interesting setups:

    IIRC, xpadder in Windows isn't abandoned, it just isn't free anymore.


    I might consider trying this out too. I have a DS4 and ds4drv seems to cause more problems than it fixes, so this'll be worth trying.

    It's a great program. The dev is very responsive and does a lot of the packaging himself.

    I've found myself using antimicro on days I want to laze on a couch with a controller rather than using the mouse and keyboard in a chair.... great for minecraft.

    Just noticed a bug in Logitech's 'Cordless Rumblepad II' drivers while testing this. *pfffff* now I have to find out where to report it.
