Bluetooth controller acting as 7 different devices?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

So I recently purchased a cheap "VR Controller" from Aliexpress in the hopes that I could maybe run it through software to get two of them to emulate a Xbox controller.
Though when setting them up today I ended up with something.... Strange....

 

The device appears as 7 devices! Basically 7 different drivers make up this controller; and whats strange is that each one is designated to a different function. 

Now this wouldn't be a big problem if I could disable all but the controller part of it and then work with it from that; but windows does not give me any options to disable it's keyboard emulation; and the controller emulation is has doesn't even work! So now I have a controller that has it's thumbstick bound to mouse, Y and A buttons bound to volume up and down, and X and B bound to page up and down. It's trigger is left click. 

 

Now my question is; is there any way around this? Is there maybe another driver around somewhere that can unify these functions? Here is some of the data I can pull from it. 

Spoiler

Hopefully this is enough information. I've been scratching my head at this for a while and tried a few different programs like V-joy. But no success at anything really...

The Aliexpress-page does, actually, tell you how to change what type of device it emulates, if you'd spent even a few more seconds at reading the page. Press the "@"-button down and, while keeping it down, press one of the four buttons below it to change whether it emulates a mouse, gamepad, multimedia-controls, a VR-stick -- it's all explained in the below picture:

I'm not sure which one you want, but it's either the VR-mode or gaming-mode that you're looking for.

Oh my god I'm an idiot.... 

 

I looked over that several times and never fully understood it. And now I understand it....

 

Yikes... Delete thread maybe? Or just keep it up I guess just in case someone like me fails to understand. 

 

At the very least I will also link the program I'm using to emulate a Xbox controller just in case someone also wants to do this.

The reason I went with this is because having two halves a controller allows you to mix up your posture more often when playing games and generally makes it easier to play games when laying down.

Don't beat yourself up over it, these things happen to literally everyone 🙃
