      Who in their right mind would do this? I see no point in using this. It'd make every game TEN times harder then it already is. If anything I rather see something that actually makes sense like a game controller modifier allowing you to switch controls for every game. Not the recent button switcher that was recently released. But a actual program that can select and show each game's controlls and be able to switch them all around.

      Hmm I will check this right now looks very very very nice but wait a moment ? Isn't this a bit hmm cheat ? Using mouse vs pad players ? I don't know yet how this mouse work and how is the delay but... if it works fine I don't recommend to release Win 7 version ... The kids will do everything to get the biggest number of frags mouse + keybord probably will make this much easier. Maybe I'm wrong but I like equal fight and real skill in using pad.

      Hi,

      I'm the author of the sixaxis emulator.

      Please remove all the part that is copy-pasted from my blog.

      There is no good reason to copy-paste anything, unless you want the reader of this news not to come to my blog, and read something that will be quickly outdated.

      I hope for a quick modification.

      Most people are grateful that we post about their projects, it gets them recognized, it makes people aware of the work that they can do and those people thanks us instead of being rude.

      I have removed the tutorial due to it upsetting you, but to begin with i didn't even need to front page the article, i did it so that people knew of your accomplishment, perhaps that was a mistake

      I'm curious how many vistors you lose by not letting information be freely distributed?

      I may be strange in how I do things, but if something has more detail, I usually go straight to their page, blog etc to find out what else they may have. If it just says "This makes wonderful coffee" (example lol) I rarely go there unless others try it and then post their findings and details on it (or if I am bored pooless).

      It's your call Matlo, but I think you are being rather silly about it

      I don't see anything in his post that was rude, you know what is rude though? going to someone's personal blog and copypasta word for word what someone wrote without express permission and think that HE should thank YOU?

      If you want to show people my work, then you gave the wrong content. The following page is much more reflecting my work: http://diy-machine.blogspot.com/p/features.html

      I think it's not a good thing to duplicate tutorials, because the copy will be sooner or later outdated, and in the end this may generate more work to the author because people will ask him about things that changed. Especially, there are links to the latest packages in this tutorial, that I have to update each time I make a release. You don't want people to miss new features/bug fixes, do you?

      Anyway, I'm not upset anymore. Thanks for the news

      So does the mouse actually work like a mouse or is it just emulating analogue control placement? With an attitude like that I can't be bothered finding out myself.

      If it is in public domain, it is not personal, if someone does not state not to copy and paste, nor do they copyright it, then of course permission is not needed, if people don't want their work copy and pasted, they should expressly state so, so that these type of misunderstanding do not happen.

      I never assumed that you do not want people going to my blog. The last part of my sentence has a lot of sense: "and read something that will be quickly outdated". If you cut that last part, the sentence looses its meaning.

      True, and that's why I used the word "Please" at the beginning of my request.

      That's the best part! You can use this with 3.61+ since your PS3 thinks it's the normal controller that's already synced to it.. I'm trying to find a USB 360 controller cable to use with this, to save me building that PS360 controller I was planning.

      Also, for anyone who's new to Linux, check out Wubi, it's so easy to set up and you can dualboot your PC easily then, deciding between booting Linux or Windows. I'm using that right now, works perfect with this Sixemu!

      using a mouse/keyboard harder as using a pad? right.. I can't play 1st person shooters for **** with a pad, that's the biggest problem I have with playing on consoles, that's why I was very interested in the move, which if implemented correctly, let's me aim correctly (I have a 2.5m wide screen so shooting at the screen is actually awesome, especially if you can turn off the weapon).. I even bought myself a FragFXv2 (which isn't the best, but get's me actually shoot better).

      uhmm.. you do know that if someone puts it on a blog or anywhereelse on the internet is actually immediatly copyrighted to them unless stated otherwise.. Normally people don't care if they are quoted, but if you do copy/paste it, you should always ask for permission..

      I've been playing with sixemu since january, it's updated frequently and was the reason why I didn't buy a xcm to use my keyboard and mouse, Matlo is a great coder and deserves a lot of appreciation for this.

      It's a nice piece of software and is always being improved.

      1.) An article isn't copyrighted if it doesn't have a copy right.
      2.) I never posted the article.
      3.) Never had this situation before, normally people are happy and great full that we decided to post about them.

      Splitting hairs Greg but he *does* have copyright and doesn't need to do anything to gain it. We all do automatically when we write something - unless the work was done while employed to write it by someone else....now 'fair use' will allow you to cut and paste/photocopy up to 10% without permission...beyond that you technically need permission.... Course if something is specifically released as 'public domain' or under a GNU license etc it is totally different....

      That said it is splitting hairs and someone would have to be pretty unreasonable to take action against a site like this which has so many users and will drive traffic to their site.

      :-D

      That's what annoyed me, the link to the site was in the original post, regardless of whether the tutorial was there are not, the site was still sourced and linked accordingly, as i said in the post before yours, we have never had this problem before, no one in the history of this forum has ever requested us to remove a tutorial.

      Please note that I never talked about copyright infringement.

      Again, I'm more concerned with efficiency: copied stuff becomes outdated quickly. This generally makes both users and developpers waste some time.

      Duplicated things may also harm the pagerank of my blog.

      Yeah, keep thinking that until you actually have some sleezebag with a (not even really decent) lawyer.. You really have to read up on copyright on the internet if you really think that..

      The actual thing is, a lot of people don't mind you posting their stuff and therefore it won't give you any problems (especially as far as I know you always add the link to the original article)..

      Don't be ignorant and think it is needed to actually 'legally copyright' something, because it isn't..

      WTF? Why is this article about the old bluetooth version that has been out for a long time already? Why no mention of the new USB version he just released? And why are you linking to outdated tutorials? I know Matlo never updates his tutorials, but that is no excuse to link to an outdated one; better to have a list of steps in a text file or something.

      I have to agree with Matlo; this article is done very poorly.

      Actually, I do update the tutorial. This happens as soon as I consider it's too much outdated regarding to the latest package. The only way to be up-to-date it is to read my blog.

      I could update the tutorial each time I release a package, but this is time-consuming (there are 3 tutorials to update, English, French and German), so I only update it each 2-3 packages.

      Maybe the law is different over there but from everything my patent attorney and intellectual property advisors told me there is no such thing as 'legally copyrighted' everything is copyrighted automatically the only reason for a notice is to emphasize it and the only reason for a solicitor is to prove that it was you that did it. - they're essentially a witness and you can save yourself much hassle and money by simply sending a copy to yourself by recorded delivery and using it in court! If you can prove it's yours even without a notice on the text or a solicitor you still have all the same legal rights. It really is splitting hairs mind you but always best to know where you stand!
