Bluetooth Filter Driver for DS3-compatibility - research notes

  • pali, reporting for duty with only a hint of snark 😛

  • Good luck with the testing! I've been following this for a while and can't wait to finally have a true replacement for SCP. I'm very excited with the progress you've posted. Thank you so much for your work on this.

  • The testing so far has been overwhelmingly good apart from some legacy SCP shenanigans ruining our fun with Shibari but that's a different topic and solvable.

  • Hi nefarius,

    I too have been reading your posts on a regular basis and have been getting much enjoyment out of them (even if some of it is so technical it may as well be Chinese to me 😊 ).
    While I'm not a hardcore coder, I love tinkering and would love to help out with testing. My machine is win 10 x64, soon to be 1903, with a Intel 9260 Bluetooth card, which hast had SCP installed on it. Currently have a Xbox 1 and ds4 controller paired to it and have two real ds3's to test with. Oh, and I also have a couple of no name bt adapters that I used to use with SCP that I could also use.

  • I wouldn't mind testing either if you're still looking for more people to help. I have access to two different Bluetooth adapters (this and this), an original DS4 controller, 2x original DS3 controllers, and 2x Xbox One controllers, as well as multiple computers I could use for testing (all Windows 10 1809 currently).

    I do desktop and server support for a living, so I'm comfortable modifying the registry and adding/removing drivers and all that. Not sure what all might be needed in this scenario, but I'll do whatever you may need. Just let me know.

  • @teeedubb @chaoticyeshua welcome to the flock then, I've adapted your permissions, have fun 😄

  • I'd like to test as well, here's my setup: original Sixaxis and DS3 with a Chinese clone. Bluetooth V4.0+EDR adapter (CSR8510). Had no success with AirBender. photo

  • If you are looking for any more beta testers please include me. I have 2 chinese DS3 controllers. and 2 bluetooth usb dongles (both bluetooth 4.0) and one bluetooth card built in to the laptop (bluetooth 4.2). I would love to help in anyway I can.

  • @ekze @Kue welcome aboard! 🚋

  • Hello, i have interest in beta testing too. I currently have two original DS3s that i use for playing with FireShock via USB. Aditionally, i have a Bluetooth CSR2.1 USB adapter (VID_0A12&PID_0001). I've been reading this thread for a while and it's amazing the work you have been doing.

  • Hi! I am also interested in beta testing. I have a two real DS3s. This work is super exciting, I would love to hop on board!

  • Since test feedback has been very pleasing so far I'll cut back on recruitment today and implement the missing bits and pieces in the drivers and then throw them into the WHQL test bench. Will keep you updated.

  • Jo, it's WHQL-o-clock 😅


    This time the filter is my primary test subject. Fingers crossed! ☠

  • Oh yes, give me more green! All the green tick marks! 😎


  • @tulio150 @ryantburke done, welcome!

  • @Poosaurus you too 😛

  • Dammit, almost... 👀

    Oh 😐 How did I manage to provoke that. Well, back to fixing stuff 😅

  • Very impressive work, would be interested in beta testing with an original Sixaxis DS3 and Bluetooth 4.0 adapter.

  • In my previous test run the filter crashed at the test Wdf - Kmdf Fault Injection Test

    This test is actually amazing! 😲 Summary:

    For each DDI that has been configured for fault injection, the WdfFiTester tool returns an NTSTATUS code of STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL. The driver is expected to handle the failure.

    That is really cool! It means, that it uncovers continued code execution where a faulty return code of a WDF function call isn't caught properly, which may lead to a crash (as demonstrated in my last run). I think I've nailed down the issue in my code and just started another run. Fingers crossed 🤞

  • Beyond impressed with this. I've been wanting to use the PS3 Navi remote for my HTPC for years, but I didn't have the willpower to dig into it like you have. Also, thanks so much for the PS4 remote drivers. They worked flawlessly. Now able to use the Nvidia shield without having to pair/unpair its remote (next step is to run Steam Link on the Pi and then use it directly on that in a different room).

    Also happy to beta test, although it looks like you have plenty - I have a plethora of Windows machines, Pi's and Android TVs and tablets (also, as an aside, I'm also happy to give advice on career paths into coding if it will help - I manage teams of coders, previously at Atlassian, now about to join a startup. Was surprised to read it's been difficult).

    Looking forward to the final commit! 🎮
