Revival with New Releases

Ahoy Everyone! It's been over 2 years since my last News post where WiinUPro 0.9 made its debut and I announced the project going Open Source and that I wouldn't be able to work on it anymore. Well I did get permission to continue the project and have already made two more releases of WiinUPro on GitHub

The latest release adds Guitar controller support, though it is untested with an actually controller since I don't have access to one so let me know if anything doesn't work as expected, especially the Whammy bar, I wasn't sure exactly how that should function so I made it like a trigger.

I'll continue to make updates here and there while also addressing issues. My road map is something like this:
  • Add Taiko Drum and DJ Hero Controller Support
  • Add GameCube Controller Rumble Support
  • Finish IR pointer support and Calibration
  • Add Balance Board Support
  • Add Accelerometer Support
  • Add Gyro Support
  • Improve Performance & Memory Consumption
  • Add Gesture Support (post version 1.0)
Some of this stuff is straight forward and won't take long, others require some more thinking and design. It's fun working on the project again. However I should provide fair warning not to expect updates to be at a regular cadence. I just happen to have a bit more spare time due to the holiday time off but things will slow down again in the new year. Hopefully a major release will see the light of day in 2020.

Happy New Year!
