WiinUSoft Version 2.0

Version 2 of WiinUSoft is finally here! Check it out from the Downloads page. Here are the major changes in this release:

  • The Nintroller Library has been updated to version 2 (not backwards compatible)
  • Controller calibration options are now available in both presets and custom options
  • Primitive Wiimote and Nunchuk accelerometer mapping added
  • The crash in Windows 10 has been fixed (caused by the Dark Souls fix)
  • Config file is saved to the AppData folder when it can't be save in the same directory as the exe.
  • Added run on Windows startup
  • Added start minimized
  • Inputs can now be mapped to nothing
  • Crash reporting added

The Nintroller Library (for the controller communication) rewrite has been completed and is being utilized by WiinUSoft now. This new version isn't backwards compatible so don't try using the old library with the new application and visa-versa. You can also now change calibration settings for your controllers by choosing from a list of presets or by creating your own. Just a note, when calibrating the pitch and roll of the Wiimote and Nunchuk, tilt the controllers to the maximum amount that you want to tilt it and no further. Also, the accelerometer mappings are sort of primitive but they are there if you want to try them out, for now it's just tilt and shaking.

And of course the Windows 10 crash fix is in this version which many of you have been asking about is included in this build. The crash was being caused by the fix that was initially put into place for the Dark Souls games. That had to be removed in order for it to work so that issue might resurface in Windows 10, however it will remain fixed for Windows 7 & 8. Also, this version will still require the Toshiba Bluetooth stack as controllers, though can be connected , aren't at all useable with the default MS stack. On the bright side, I have found a way to install the Toshiba Stack against built in Bluetooth adaptors and I will add that to the Tutorials section (and actually create the section) when I get a chance. Personally I prefer the Toshiba BT interface over the new Windows one anyway.

Thanks everyone for your patience. It was my intent to get this build out before Windows 10 was released but was unable to. My back gave out on me and as a result sitting was excruciatingly painful; even now it is still uncomfortable so that had an impact on my productiveness. And my baby girl is now a month old! She can be quite a handful at times but is totally worth it. Then there is the full time job, those three tings put together makes extra time a rare thing, but thankfully I've had enough to finish this up before too long.

Thanks and Enjoy!
