Generic gamepad mode added to the firmware

We released Firmware 0.87.0, which includes:

  • A new Protocol mode which behaves as a Generic gamepad, aka DirectInput on Windows. Check Tune manual page for more info (the LEDs indications have changed).
  • The controller now restarts automatically when changing protocol mode.

Thanks to the new generic mode is now possible to use fusion input (mouse + analog thumbstick) on the Steam Deck, as a workaround while we investigate what's wrong with XInput Linux mode on the Steam UI.

Generic gamepad mode also increases compatibility with retro games and simulators.

Minor fix in 3d models for select buttons

Discord user Xenum noticed there was an accidental asymmetry on the model for the Alpakka select buttons (notice how the bottom edges were not flat). It is now corrected on the Case 0.86.1 release. Thanks!

We created a rolling entry on the blog to keep a register of media (websites, videos, podcasts) reporting about Input Labs, we called it They were talking about us.
