ds4Vita, use your DualShock 4 controller with your Vita
While I was working on the article for ViiMote, I noticed a lot of people were asking for the same tool for DualShock4 controllers. Developer Xerpi has decided to heed the demands of the people and has created DS4Vita, a plugin that allows you to pair your PS Vita with your DualShock 4 controller.
If you read the article on/tested ViiMote, the process to get DS4Vita to work is nearly the same. Xerpi adds that the touchpad works in some games and not in others but otherwise everything should be working fine.
What is DS4Vita?
DS4Vita is a plugin for taiHEN/taiHENkaku created by developer Xerpi. This plugin allows you to use a DualShock 4 controller on your Vita. Touchpad support works on some games but not others.
- Enable ds4vita.skprx in taiHEN’s config.txt
- Go to Setting -> Devices -> Bluetooth Devices
- Press SHARE+PS on the DS4 for about 3 seconds, until the lightbar blinks
- The DS4 will then connect (don’t press over it when it appears)
Note: If somehow you can’t establish a connection, try to delete the pairing by pressing over it (on Settings menu) and then selecting Delete and try again.
To download DS4Vita you can do one of two things: either head to the release thread over at the wololo forums or head to Xerpi‘s GitHub release page to download the plugin. If you have suggestion or bugs reports, I’d advise you to do so on the release thread.
Enjoy the release!
