cellUsbd device whitelist

To avoid interfering with all hardware and for ease of use our list of devices is an invisible whitelist of supported hardware, which at the time of writing is:

  • Skylanders Portal
  • Singstar Microphone (currently not working as it uses the streaming usb protocol)
  • Guitar Hero Guitar
  • Guitar Hero Drums
  • Guitar Hero Live Guitar
  • DJ Hero Turntable
  • Harmonix Guitar
  • Harmonix Drums
  • Harmonix Keyboard
  • Harmonix Button Guitar
  • Harmonix Real Guitar
  • lgFF_c283_c29b(which regroups some Logitech wheels used by GT5/6)
  • Thrustmaster RGT FFB Pro
  • Thrustmaster F430
  • Thrustmaster FFB
  • Thrustmaster TRS
  • Thrustmaster T500 RS Gear Shift

cellUsbd set-up instructions

Now before you go all giddy and plug your favourite wheel to go play GT5, know that there are some limitations.

On Windows

  • You need to change the driver of the accessory you want to use to WinUsb one with zadig which is a well respected software to handle this.
  • Just in case the procedure to REVERT the driver is:
    1. Go to device manager, the device will be listed under "Universal Serial Bus Devices", right click on it,
    2. Properties => Driver => Update Driver => Browse my computer for driver software => Let me pick... => USB Input Device (or whatever the previous driver was).

On Linux

  1. Create a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/99-ps3-peripherals.rules (you will need root permissions to create this file), and fill it with the following:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0666"
  2. Note: this gives r/w access to all USB devices by default, if you want to specify a specific device you can use:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="ABCD", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1234", MODE="0666"
    changing idVendor and idProduct values to the VID/PID of the device you want to allow.

Skylander portal

To emulate skylander toys:

  1. Go to Manage => Skylanders Portal
  2. Click New and create a new file. That file represents a skylander figure and its stats, it will be automatically saved with each change to the figure in-game. You can use the combobox to choose which figure that file represents.

Note that it is only enabled if it doesn't detect any real skylander portal.

Also of note is that the Skylander figure data generation is incomplete and the first time you use it, it will either refuse it or some games (such as Skylanders SWAP Force) will detect it as <corrupted> and offer to repair it, once repaired it will work perfectly on all games.
