Hello Brownard,

i have test the new MP2.1.1 with the emulatorplugin (0.6) . I can create the the emulator, but the mediatype games is not existing in mediasources. I think, there is something to fix.

    Any chance that I could get my Steam controller to work as input device?
    It doesn't show up in the device settings of the plugin.

    It looks like it uses a proprietary API for the full functionality which is restricted to use in Steam so getting it to fully work probably isn't possible currently. It does look like some people have reversed engineered it but nothing in c# (which MP/this plugin is written in) and as I don't own a steam controller it would be difficult for me to port their work and implement it myself.
    It might be possible to get basic functionality to work as apparently it does report itself as a mouse and keyboard, have you tried mapping it using keyboard as the input device, you might be able to get at least the d-pad and buttons to work (the plugin doesn't support mouse input yet so the track pads probably won't work)?

    This works in theory if you configure the steam controller to use only keyboard keys and nothing special i.e. mouse movement.
    In practice this means you can't use it for anything else anymore while on your desktop.
    Because of this and according to what you said it's probably not worth the trouble.

    Any chance this would work with 2.1.2/2.1.3? I can add the emulator, configure it etc. and add the media source type but nothing happens when I select Games from the main menu.
