Ah, very interesting, Javier. Do you have any links and advice for running "Live CD". I'm not aware of it at all.

Cheers,

Barrie

Great!!

it only runs on Linux but you can use a Live CD !! so isnt a big problem!
Although is really boring to configure it each OS restart.

Just a little more info on that holy-grail of accessible controllers...

This is a good step towards what I'd love to see:

http://diy-machine.blogspot.com/2011/01/new-english-tutorial.html

A PC (unfortunately has to run Linux) - with keyboard or mouse compatible controller - that connects to a PS3. From this players can use a wide range of peripherals (head-tracker, track-ball, glide-pad, eye-tracker via the mouse compatibility - and likely joystick use via the keyboard compatibility). They can reconfigure the controls on games that didn't have the foresight to offer that option - and play.

Next step would be wonderful if it could run on a Windows/Mac/iOS operating system - and offer player assist modes (latching modes / auto-fire modes / pre-set move routines) - and then be used on an Xbox 360, Wii, iPad and future machines.

One day...

Barrie
