WiinUSoft Updated to version 1.1

WiinUSoft has been updated! Grab it from the Downloads page. In it you will find the following features:

  • WiinUSoft no longer shares! Access to controllers are now blocked from other programs, so playing Dark Souls shouldn't pose an issue anymore while using WiinUSoft.
  • Rumble Support has been improved. Vibration intensity will now respond better to what the games output so a soft rumble output will no longer feel like a maximum output.
  • Rumble Intensity can be adjusted. You can control the amount of force feedback you receive or turn it off completely.
  • Wiimotes now also support rumble.
  • Analog ranges have been improved.
  • Various bug fixes. Issues with saving profiles and a crash revolving around auto connect have been resolved.

The controller that came out on top from the previous poll is the HORI Battle Pad! In the beginning it had very least amount of votes but by the end it swept away the competition. With your help, I have purchased and received one and have tested it out with WiinUSoft. And I'm happy to say that it works perfectly. The controller is detected as an original Classic Controller and buttons function and the turbo feature works as expected. The only thing that is odd about it is that since it is being detected as an Original Classic Controller, it is shown that it has analog triggers even though the controller itself has digital triggers, but it's not a big deal, every time you press the trigger it outputs as if you were pressing fully down on a Classic Controller trigger. I haven't found any unique identifier for the controller yet so it will still display as a normal Classic Controller in WiinUSoft.

The runner up is the PDP Fightpad which I've been told also works in WiinUSoft as it is and reacts to the triggers the same way as the HORI Battle Pad does. I'm not sure if the triggers feel like they are analog on the PDP Fightpad but I have read from reviews that they are digital. The Pro Controller U or whatever they have renamed it to still showed some interest so I will be getting to testing that one out as well. I saw votes in for the "Other" category but there was only one suggestion so I'm uncertain as to what other controllers you all have in mind. Please let me know. The one suggestion was for the PS3 controller which I am not opposed to taking a look at but keep in mind that there is already a driver for the controller so it has a bit stronger integration and that is what the SCP driver was made for. If you are still interested please let me know.

Thanks and enjoy!
