    what is the difference between this and the us model?

    just set default input to us keyboard and now everything is sorted but no pound key so going try a custom keyboard layout
    That looks pretty much the same to me, just glancing at it. The US keyboard has stuff like the pound key too, but I do not currently know how to make a HID keyboard generate a UK pound sign just by using scancodes, so it may have to wait until we figure out a solution.

    Especially when the dev in question, already made a choice (googlecode in this case).

    Peace
    Thanks...like I said, I was basically just curious what he was trying to do. If he wants to fork it, I'd just prefer a different game, since I don't want to confuse people with two different source code and binary websites and the same driver name.

    Just warning you, and please don't take this the wrong way, if you are unfamiliar with the device driver kit then messing with kernel drivers can really be a tough effort, and I am not sure how much support I would provide. If you are sure you want to get into experimenting with device drivers, you may want to read some documentation (my source code should have a link or two for a sample filter driver, though you may have to use google cache to see the site).

    All I do to build things is run the WinDDK build environment for whatever system I'm going to build, using the start menu shortcut (i.e. Windows 7 x64), then use the command "testbuild.bat win7 amd64" from the top-level source directory. That batch file should run testbuild.bat files in the subdirectories. Good luck!

    Hello GAF, I tried the driver installer for Vista 32-bit (chatpad_installer_i386) but i had an error which read:

    Failed to update chatpad filter device driver: 0x00000422
    ...
    The Chatpad installer has finished running.


    I didn't see any new HID entries in device manager, but I went ahead and ran chatpad_control_i386. Its been running for about 18 hours and I haven't experienced any crashes but unfortunately there is still no input. If there's any particular information that would be helpful let me know. Thank you for all your hard work as well.

    ****
    Chatpad control utility version 0.1a started

    Please wait...

    Control Utility Started.
    Failed to open config file "Chatpad_config.txt"
    There was an error while attempting to lead config file "Chatpad_config.txt"
    Done. The exit status is -1

    Conglatulations for your success. It's a wonderful project and I am very happy that sometimes someones like you could reach goals like this.

    Now, I registered because I need your help.

    I'm on a windows 7 64 bit OS, I disabled signature control for drivers and i have installed the new one.
    I restarted the computer like you said but now, when i click on "chatpad_control_amd64" a message comes up saying "there was an error while attempting to load config file "chatpad_config.txt"

    and so the joypad stays off.

    What should i do?

    should i move that file into another directory or something like that?

    G'day, everyone! I'll try to type out a bunch of responses here.

    First off, someone named Philipp emailed me with a German config file. It apparently supports some/most special German characters, but < and > do not have working versions yet. I may need to look into additional foreign-language support, but here is what he has so far:

    Yes, you should be able to use the chatpad inside a game, if the game supports keyboard input. It is probably best for games like MMORPGs where you might type messages to teammates. I even used the chatpad to play some WASD Mirror's Edge, but that's obviously not an easy way to play that game. :P

    I am rather surprised the control utility would keep running if the filter driver didn't install. In your Device Manager, what is the name of the device in the Microsoft common controller category now? Does it mention chatpad in its name? At any rate, I'll try to look up that error code and make another post later, stay tuned.

    I think this should be something simple. Make sure the file "chatpad_config.txt" is in the same directory as the control utility when you run it.

    I am hoping you are having the same problem as the previous poster. Make sure the chatpad_config.txt file is in the same directory as the chatpad_control_amd64.exe executable. If you made a desktop shortcut, make sure you really made a shortcut to the executable, not a COPY of the executable. Also you might need to look at the right click->properties of the shortcut, to see if the "run in" directory points to the same place as the .exe and the chatpad_config.txt file.

    I'm sorry you're having trouble...exactly what sort of problems do you have? Does it only register sometimes when you press it? I assume you or a friend don't have an actual XBox 360 that you could try it with to make sure it's not the hardware. I think the '1' key on my chatpad could sometimes not register unless I made sure to press it firmly, but I don't remember anything about the '9'. If you have any sort of repeatable behavior, describe it as precisely as you can, and I might be able to take a look at it.

    There is actually a 360 at my parents house. I'm heading over there today and I'll bring my chatpad and make sure it's my own chatpad and not the drivers. Actually on closer inspection I'm about 99% sure it's my chatpad and not the drivers. It seems that the problem I was having is that 9 only works when you press on the button very hard. I simply thought it wasn't registering. I discovered this because I was chatting to someone on Facebook on my HDTV and said "I'm going to the store at 9am" but all that showed up was "I'm going to the store at am". It was simply because I wasn't pressing hard enough.

    tl;dr
