Dual Strike : Good News, PS Home Buttons works!!!

Got it, Home Button is fixed now. No 1st of April joke!!!

IvlePhisto made the HOME Button work in just 2 days.

That`s incredible. Comparing to all those other PS3 controller projects we`re after Toodles from SRK the only project which achieves this status.

Source + FW Update

How to Use
==========

When shipped the default working mode is Dual Strike.
During plug-in press any play button or stick to switch to the non-default working mode.


Configuration Mode
==================

Let me introduce some motivation about the Dual Strike config mode.

1. ) Configuration of default working mode

The user can decide which console Dual Strike should support by default. Dual Strike default is to start in PS3/ PC mode. Press any stick or play button key to switch to xbox360. But now the user wants to start by default the xbox360 and on key press the PS3. No problem. The user can easily configure this.

1. Plugin in Dual Strike in any USB connector and press Select button and release it again;) -> Conf Mode
2. Press
LK default working mode: Dual Strike (default, precedence over MK)
MK default working mode: (xbox360) pass-through
3. Press Start to leave and save configuration.


2.) Configuration of Start + Select = Home

Sometimes the user wants that Start plus Select is HOME or GUIDE. Example you want no turbo hole in your TE Stick, but you only have Start and Select button in your frame. Then map the HOME Button to Start + Select

1. Plugin in Dual Strike in any USB connector and press Select button and release it again;) -> Conf Mode
2. Press
LP Start+Select=Home: disabled (default, precedence over MP)
MP Start+Select=Home: enabled
3. Press Start to leave and save configuration.

3.) Configuration of hat switch and analogue input

Some arcade games are controlled only by digital hat switch or analogue input. Okay, here's the config again

1. Plugin in Dual Strike in any USB connector and press Select button and release it again;) -> Conf Mode
2. Press
Up Dual Strike stick mode: both (default, precedence over Left and Right)
Left Dual Strike stick mode: digital only
Right Dual Strike stick mode: analogue only
3. Press Start to leave and save configuration.


Inverted trigger support is not normally compiled in. But if it is, the following configuration possibilities are also available:
HK inverted trigger support: disabled (default, precedence over HP)
4P inverted trigger support: enabled


Firmware
========

Press and hold Start to switch to bootloader, then you can execute the file
"update_firmware.bat" to update the firmware (two command
prompt windows should open).

Firmware source code for AVR Studio and compiled .hex file are included.

Have fun

Hi !
great news,
as always, i'm very interrested in understanding how you fix the PS3 home button trouble !!!
I try to download the source file, but only the .hex and bootloader software are included,
Did you remove the source file for AVR studio from there ?
Is there a link I could use to read your source code ?
Thank's and best regards,
Lionel
