Hi Everyone,

This is the first app that I've publish, so any constructive criticisms are welcome.

Vritual Wheel:
This app allows you to use your android device as a wireless steering wheel to control racing/driving games on your PC.
Your android device and computer must be on the same network for this to work (meaning same router/switch).

This app currently works with both 32 and 64 bit Windows.

Installation and usage instructions are in the app description on the Play market.

Link:


Please leave me some feedbacks in this thread on what you like and what you don't like. Also what you want (other than the planned features) and any bugs (please also tell me what device and version of Android you are running).

Code:
Changelog:
v0.1:
Initial Release
v0.2:
Added steering angle adjustments and deadzone.
Added 64 bit support.
Thank You

Thanks. My computer's graphics card just died on me yesterday, so I won't be able to do much development. Going to take about 3 days for the new GPU to come in. I plan to implement adjustable steering angle, calibration, and hopefully bluetooth communication in the next update. 64-bit is a bit harder than I thought, so that is currently delayed.

It's a fantastic app from what I can see. I'm using a 64bit pc so I'm eagerly awaiting the 64 bit release!

EDIT: Is there anyway to run it on a 64 bit pc as a 32 bit app or something? Like "Compatability mode" etc?

Unfortunately no. The 64 bit support has to do with the driver. Currently, I estimate about 1-2 weeks before I can get the 64 bit support working. So hang in there, it's coming

Ok, finally got my GPU. Just compiled the 64bit drivers, and tested to be working fine. All I have to do now is implement them into the installation package. 64 bit coming this weekend

v0.2
Added steering angle adjustments and deadzone
Also added 64-bit support (I am still learning Windows Driver Development, so the implementation is not very efficient and clean. Hopefully I will be able to design a clean custom driver for both 32 and 64 bit within the next month)

How to make this app works with City Car Driving or Need For Speed Underground 2?
Would you give a way to configure it on PC (in games)?

Thanks...
