An adventurous and skillful modder has managed to turn a Wii remote into an Xbox 360 controller with middleware help from the PS2 control scheme -- it's as if all the console makers are working in harmony for this one hack. Try humming this to the tune of "Dem Bones
" (actually, don't, because we're not even going to try to fit the rhyme scheme):
- The Xbox 360 is connected to the XFPS PS2 to 360 adapter
- ... which is connected to a big black box Microcontroller "with custom firmware emulating a PS2 controller"
- ... which is connected to a Samsung Q1 PC with custom Wii remote firmware
- ... which is connected via Bluetooth to the Wii remote itself.
Full details of the process can be found here
. A video demonstration is embedded after the break that not only shows the control scheme work with Halo 2
but also the thought put into making it a comfortable and viable control scheme (such as anti-acceleration and smoothing algorithms).
