Remember that Dark Souls steering wheel video?

So on May 17th 2013, I beat the first boss of Dark Souls using a steering wheel; after that video was up, I noticed people recording similar acts.

This lead me to believe that I was on to something, which brought me to create a stupid series called No, don’t use that! Although I made a few similar videos, I never really pushed this to the extent that I could – like introducing multiplayer elements; think of a Mortal Kombat match where one player is using a DDR mat and the other is using the Donkey Konga drums! It sounds horrible and delightful in so many ways! =]

So why am I bringing this up? Well, I think my first Kickstarter attempt for anything video related won’t be Music or artwork with glitching methods – it would be continuing the silly trend of playing games the way there weren’t made to be played.

Anyway, here are some related videos! More on this coming soon..!

 

Steam Link – Controller Guide

Controllers that currently work with the Steam Link..!

DualShock 3 [PlayStation 3 Controller]
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Only using a Bluetooth adapter and VirtualHere.
A video will be made on how to connect it via Bluetooth. If you’re in a rush though, reading this might guide your path.

DualShock 4 [PlayStation 4 Controller]
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
If you’re having difficulty connecting via Bluetooth, try resetting the controller; do this by inserting a pin in the back of the controller. Video?!

Wii U Pro Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
If you’re having issues connecting wirelessly, try updating your Steam Link and Steam software on the host computer.

Xbox 360 Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
I only tested this using the official Microsoft Wireless Receiver; if anyone tested it with the others, I will update this accordingly.

Xbox One Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: No. [But may work with VirtualHere!]
Currently the Xbox Wireless Adapter only works directly connected to Windows; however, VirtualHere might allow it to work. Testing needed!

DDR pad [Dance Dance Revolution Mat]
It works without any modification, as seen here playing Super Hexagon!

Fighterstick [Thrustmaster USB Joystick]
Yeah, this works – after a Steam Link update. 

Steering Wheel [Logitech Driving Force GT Racing Wheel]
This works with VirtualHere only. Follow this video on how to set it up correctly. Safe driving!

GameCube Adapter [Mayflash GameCube to Wii U / PC]
At the time of this video, VirtualHere did not exist – so my testing failed. It should now work with VirtualHere though!
