Default Use your android phones as a Joystick/Wheel/Pedal

EDIT: I fucked up and mixed up the versions, redownload the file from the link and update the APK on your phone if you downloaded it before this edit. (You should have 8 buttons without one with an "unused" text on it )

Reposting this from the PRtournament forums. I'm sorry if its too offtopic, it is usable in PR, but I wasn't sure if it should go here.

I have programmed a software that lets you use your Android's accelerometer sensor as a windows controller. Here are some examples I recorded:

in PR: Flight stick


F1:2014, wheel and pedal




If you're interested, download it here and follow the readme. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...idJoystick.rar. If you run into problems, please do give me some feedback.

Thanks, I know the UI isn't too understandable but it should be enough with the readme.

Pff, who gives a crap about the UI, the important thing is to work. btw my Xperia S is really slow and I'm removing some useless crap before I install this, will post feedback within an hour if everything works out.


Okay, so, so far I've:

-Installed vjoy;
-Installed the .apk;
-Started the "AndroidJoystick.exe" as administrator;
-Turned ON tracking on the mobile app;
-Typed in the local IP of my PC in the phone app (both phone and PC are connected in same network);

But nothing happens, should I change something in controls?

Yea. Do you see the graphs? You have to bind it to specific controls (Droplist with the X,Y,Z,RX,RY,RZ that defaults to OFF) and click apply. or click load and use my flight preset.
Also administrator should not be a problem and isn't required.

use "monitor vjoy" to see if it works. (Or just the windows control panel "set up USB game controllers" thing).

Put a screenshot if it still doesn't work.

Edit: Oh right, I forgot to mention, If you downloaded before i edited the main post, download again. I forgot to export the android version and hosted the old one. If you have "unused" as the 8th button on android, then you need to update.
