    Video: PS4 DualShock 4 Controller on PC (DS4 to XInput Mapping Tool)

    Following up on the DualShock 4 (DS4) PlayStation 4 / PS4 Controller Teardown, today PlayStation 4 developer InhexSTER has made available a DS4 to XInput Wrapper alongside a video of the PS4 DualShock 4 Controller on PC in action followed by samples to use DualShock 4 and DualShock 3 Controllers on a PS2 and Wii by xerpi below.

    Download: DS4Tool.zip / dualshock_samples.zip (DualShock Samples) / libds3ps2 (DualShock 3 on PS2) / libds4ps2 (DualShock 4 on PS2) / PS2InfoGB_KarasQ_rev6c_libds3ps2_libds4ps2.zip (PS2InfoGB - with DS3 / DS4 Support) / DS4 to Wii Bluetooth.zip / DS4WiiBT Source Code / DS4Pair_Wii Source Code

    To quote: Hello guys, i am new here but i want to share a tool I made for Dualshock 4 controllers. I was inspired by the tool made by Scarlet.Crush for DS3.

    My tool works in similar fashion and is based on source code from DS3 Scp Tool.

    It works though without messing with the original drivers for DS4. Uses DirectInput to XInput mapping. You still need to install drivers for SCP virtual bus device and possible X360 Controller drivers.

    Currently all buttons/Axis work like they should. No support for rumble and controlling light to indicate controller number.

    Shortly I will make a video demonstrating the tool.

    Update: After looking into disabling original controller, so it wouldn't show up in games / do double input, I think it's not possible with using default windows drivers. Rumble and lightbar also require some more reverse engineering of USB communication.

    So first thing it would require actually capturing data sent between PS4 and DS4, so we need to wait until it's released.

    Second thing I most likely will not be able to capture that data myself, I don't have any means to do it.

    Third this approach would require installing custom drivers for USB and Bluetooth, just like with DS3 (unsigned drivers install is a bit tricky)

    I also don't mind people with Computer Engineering skills joining in. I myself have only basic knowledge of hardware, my degree focuses on software.

    Finally, in related news CronusDEV announced (via cronusmax.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140586&p=959762&viewfull=1#post95 9762) that CronusMAX FW v1.34 is released and includes DualShock 4 fully working XBox 360, PS3 and PC.

    To quote: After a hard weekend of development we are happy to release the world's first fully working DualShock 4 Controller mod. All features are currently available in wired mode. Wireless mode is unlocked too but currently only includes the main button inputs (no rumble, led bar, gyro, ACCX, ACCY, ACCZ Support)

    Make sure you have the latest version of Gtuner Update (v2.06 at time of writing) and then update your CronusMAX firmware to v1.34 now.

    We are also currently working on the XBOX ONE Controller, Dualshock 4 Full Wireless Support, Keyboard & Mouse Support for the PS4 and XBOX ONE. Very busy times ahead

    Update: DS4WiiBT - Connection Between DualShock4 and Wii through Bluetooth Working PoC by xerpi

    I've spent a few days trying to get a connection between the Wii and a DualShock 4. In order to get it working, I had to do some "reverse engineering" to the libogc's Bluetooth stack and I finally found what was happening: the Bluetooth protocol authentication part of the libogc's bluetooth stack was missing. I've already submitted a patch to the official libogc repository.

    Well, after getting the "authentication" working, I started implementing the specific DS4 bluetooth protocol (thanks to here and here).

    The DualShock4 need to be paired through USB before establishing a Bluetooth connection, so I've crafted a program called ds4pair_wii that makes this, it pairs the DS4 to the Wii's Bluetooth address. ds4pair_wii also writes to the SD a file called ds4wiibt_config, which has a list of each MAC of all the paired DS4 controllers.

    After pairing, the connection can be established, once you press the PS button, the Dualshock 4 will try to connect to its paired MAC. Before this, the Wii has to be listening (aka waiting) for the DS4 controller to be turned on. After this, connections is established.

    • Run ds4pair_wii with the DS4 connected over USB, it'll create a config file to the SD
    • Run ds4wiibt (it'll load the config file), turn on the DS4 (press PS button)

After the new site design goes live then we will make a post and ask for contributors etc so if you wish to be readded then you can of course!

    I guess I'm no longer a mod either as I've been too busy with other things to post here.

    It was nice but still not needed. Maybe when I get more time and help out more then maybe again.

    I'm considering buying another controller for use with both consoles and my PC so this looks good considering I can use it on my PS3, PC and PS4 when I eventually (whenever that is) buy one. The issue is if they really fixed the abysmal D-Pad on the Xbox controller then that might be better, but I wouldn't be able to use that on any of my consoles. Anyone know what controller (3rd parties included) out there has the best D-Pad?

    best controller I ever had was for the original xbox. it fit great in my hands and had a fan blowing in my palms and the keypads lit up. I have been looking for something similar for Playstation forever.

    its really hard to say what's the best, cause everybody games differently. I have never been disappointed by original Sony equipment. in most cases it is far more superior than the third party ones. but the higher end Logitech devices never fail me in the past.

    Is there a certain kind of bluetooth device I need to use? I've always wanted to use one with my computer and ps3 controller but never understood how that worked lol

    I'm wanting to know if the DS4 will work with the PS3 wireless and all of it work. Last I heard its USB only and only half the controller works. Motion and a few other things didn't work. If its all working like a PS3 controller and wireless then I'll get one tomorrow.

    I also heard only some games work. I dont like the feel of the DS3 and the DS4 looks like its a better controller and looks more comfortable for me. The best would be to get a new WiiU pro controller and use that on the PS3 as thats the most comfortable atm that I've tried.
