WinSIXAXIS 1.0.0

February 19, 2008 on 2:00 pm | In Announcements | 2 Comments

I’ve written a small application that uses libusb-Win32 and PPJoy to allow the Sony SIXAXIS joypad to work under windows with motion tracking; mapping rotation along the roll and pitch axes as normal joystick axes under Windows. To download WinSIXAXIS, and read the instructions on how to install go HERE

Unfortunately, it seems that the gyroscope in my SIXAXIS joypad is defective. So, while WinSIXAXIS is able to read the gyro data, its not mapped to any joystick axis under windows, as I’m not able to properly calibrate it or use the data in any meaningful way. So for now there’s no Yaw tracking.

To calibrate your SIXAXIS to WinSIXAXIS, go HERE

A Very big thanks to Carl Keener for his generous help in explaining how to communicate with the Sony SIXAXIS using libusb-Win32. Without Carl’s help, this application wouldn’t be possible.

  1. Any chance to see a 64bit-compatible version of this?

  2. The application itself needs only be recompiled to be 64-bit compatible. The real issue here is getting libusb-win32 to work in a64-bit environment.
