CorrodedCranium, in Anyone have recommendations for STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl mods?
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Fun fact for those interested the STALKER series was partially inspired by the book A Roadside Picnic. A movie was released in 1979 that was also inspired by it named Stalker.

The audiobook narrated by Robert Forster is also great.

@Pluto what is this spammy-looking YouTube video that you spammed to several comms? What are you doing?

wccrawford, in Has anyone tried the stadia controller via Bluetooth on PC?

I tried it, found it had horrible latency, and threw it in a box.

I’ve been using the (wired) Gamesir T4 Kaleid on my desktop and loving it.

I’ve been using an XBox Elite (the one that worked, not the one I sent back because the trigger was broken) and it’s been okay, but the dead zones are much, much larger than the Kaleid. I looked at Gamesir’s wireless options, but wasn’t impressed with the reviews, so I haven’t tried any yet.

emeralddawn45, in What to do now that ds4windows is dead again?

Just keep using the old version? I haven’t updated it jn ages and it works fine.

Vinny_93, in What to do now that ds4windows is dead again?

Check out reWASD, by Daemon Tools. I paid 7 dollars for it once and it’s great.

SimplyASpeckOfDust,

reWASD is brilliant, great suggestion!

wccrawford,

Daemon Tools

Holy crap! They still exist? I haven’t heard that name in forever, but I loved their stuff back when I needed it. Wow.

bfg9k, in What to do now that ds4windows is dead again?

Steam Input can handle this now I thought?

Steam handles all of the drivers now.

NOOBMASTER, in What to do now that ds4windows is dead again?

ds4drv was working last time I checked

Moonrise2473,

It’s for Linux, not windows

Bluetooth controller support on Linux is much better

the_q, in What to do now that ds4windows is dead again?

Doesn’t steam have native support for ds4?

Albbi,

Yeah, it does. This can sometimes require launching steam in Big Picture Mode first, then select the game you want. A bit annoying to take that extra step but Steam has upped their ps5 controller support lately.

what if the game isnt on steam?

the_q,

You can still launch games through steam and use steam’s assets.

How do you not know you can add any game or program to steam?

Moonrise2473,

But I play mostly from gog, and my Intel GPU doesn’t play nice with the steam overlay (transparency becomes black and everything becomes 5 fps)

Also it means I have to waste 15 precious minutes troubleshooting the game. Pad isn’t recognized, try via steam, add it manually, see if it works via xinput, and so on.

WaterWaiver, in Can An Iranian Silkworm Battery Beat A US Carrier Group? (Naval 17) | DCS

Apparently something similar was once wargamed by the US and the carrier was lost en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_Challenge_2002

(The politics in that article remind me of a Kris Longknife book)

Is it bad that I suddenly want to build my own navy and rockets? This is like model trains.

Slappula, in Has anyone tried the stadia controller via Bluetooth on PC?

The most reliable that I’ve found is an Xbox controller connected via the Wireless Xbox Adapter. I’m not sure they make it anymore though. You will probably have to buy a used one (if interested).

Vinny_93,

The latest xbox controllers just correct though Bluetooth, no dongle required. Ave with Design Labs you can get it in any colour scheme you want.

That said, I prefer the Sony controllers and reWASD is an excellent tool to get them to work.

Slappula,

My experience with the Bluetooth on PC is that it was a bit flakey. That may have improved in the last few years though. I ran into a couple of games where it wouldn’t work on BT but worked fine via the wireless adapter.

Moonrise2473,

That same e-waste recycler has new boxed Xbox360 wireless controllers for $20 - I almost bought that then I realized that it needs to buy the proprietary battery pack, the proprietary charging cable and the proprietary USB receiver and it will become the same price of the new Xbox bluetooth controller.

I took a gamble and bought the stadia controller for $15, hope I can find time to flash it to the Bluetooth mode before they close the service

raptir, in Has anyone tried the stadia controller via Bluetooth on PC?

I’m not sure about Windows, but it works out of the box on Linux.

Moonrise2473, in Has anyone tried the stadia controller via Bluetooth on PC?

It looks like it needs workarounds too github.com/walkco/stadia-vigem 😭

And vigem has been discontinued due to a trademark issue 😢

Vinny_93,

Vigem is included in DS4Windows or the Ryujin fork

Moonrise2473,

I tried to install that ryujin fork but some games (for example “turnip boy commits tax evasion”) don’t recognize it even when emulating xinput (it worked when launched via steam)

Btw it improved a lot since last time I tried ds4windows, maybe a couple reboots would fix the issue (of course no battery and can’t find the micro USB charger)
