    I'm not sure I fully understood that but....

    I have a PS2 controller and a PS3/PC adapter which maps the home button to the analog button for use on PS3. The only thing is that when plugged into a PC, I don't know what the analog button will actually do. But the PS2 buttons are all analogue I think, so I can record the HID report if you think it might be useful.

    EDIT: OK, now I'm not so sure. My firewall/anti-virus says the uninstaller is a virus.

    Do you mean the uninstaller for the device monitor software?
    Hmmm. That could be a problem. I used it okay, but I've only got AVG installed on my Windows partition (I use linux mostly ). I expect there's other stuff out there that'll do the job, I'll investigate.

    Yup, the uninstaller for the HDD USB Monitor. It says, "heur.suspicious@25132460". I use COMODO firewall and anti-virus. Maybe it's just being paranoid, but I'd obviously rather not install it if there's any risk that the uninstaller is going to be unavailable when I come to use it.

    I agree, better to be safe. I've edited my post. I have found three alternatives but it'll have to wait until tomorrow for me to check how to use them as my laptop with Windows on is at work...

    Thumbs up Wow!

    First of all, element42... YOU ROCK!

    Second, now I'm really happy I bought a NeGcon.

    And last. I used to have a little program to use my sixaxis controller in Windows. I'll look into it, maybe it can make some HID reports.

    [edit]
    Maybe this and this helps?

    Thanks afatsuoM, but I've already seen those... the sixaxis HID is very complicated - I've tried using the appropriate parts but failed. I might still be able to use it if all else fails, though.

    I've found another USB analyzer program that to the best of my knowledge is not malware. It's called USBlyzer. I've adjusted the details in my previous post. Please let me know if any security suites detect any issues

    This one comes up clean for me. Will try it later tonight when I finish working.

    @element42 What kind of controller do you use? and what do you code it with? Assembly or higher level? What do you use to interface with USB, is USB integrated into the controller or do you just bit bang the USB protocol?

    I did as per the instructions for my Dualshock2. File is attached with the HID report, but in the game controller menu nothing is shown when I hit the analog button (which on PS3 works as the home button with this adapter). All it does is decrease the two bars for the stick input for a split second as the analog light flickers off and on quickly. So I guess the home button thing only works on the PS3 and does nothing on a PC. Maybe the HID report is the same anyway? I have no clue, but it's there in case it helps at all.

    That looks like it might be very useful, thanks a lot SaturnReturn! The report is very similar to what I'm using, but with an additional undefined axis (this might be the home button), four more buttons (perhaps d-pad double definition), and a further section on the end which I'm pretty sure governs the analog button responses...

    @wich - I'm using an AVR ATMega8 - see http://www.obdev.at/products/vusb/index.html for details. I've no real idea how it does its magic. In particular, my project is adapted from the PS2USB project by Primož Kranjec which uses the serial interface on the AVR chip to communicate with the PS controller. I'm coding in c, which I've never used before and am having to learn as I go!
    I'm putting together a web page with details which will hopefully be ready by the end of the week for anyone who wants to try making one...
