    linux support for ps3 controller

    I am wondering if there will ever be support for linux/mac?
    1) What is it coded in... I.E. can it be transfered to a mac or linux and compiled.
    2) I can help if you need because i am on a mac and would love to not have to start up parallels every time i need to change something or update i have enough experience to do it if it is in c++ and a little experience in python. I am willing to learn the language if its different.
    3) Have you thought of doing them in java... that would make it cross platform and work for everybody...

    I'm not very knowledgable in this area of computers but Odin said something about there won't be Mac or Linux capability until later in the Viking software but I'd wait for a confirmation from Odin or someone else with the Viking team.

    Im just saying if it is the lack of experience as it usually is i can help... Im sure someone else can use it if they dont have a way of working on a windows box even if it is just experimental and not all pretty yet but it still works.

    I dont really play my 360 alot but if it is simple enough i could probably do it.... I just ordered my ps3 ragnarock controller and i will not be ordering a 360 controller so i can only test for the ps3... I have no means to test for the macro 360 controller.... funding you college by yourself tends to put a hold on your hopes and dreams T_T. If it is relatively simple and they will let us do it it should just port over the same as the ps3 program... and it should work with little problems because the program is talking to the chip in the controller not the computer its self. If i am able to i would love to port it to java so all can share the love.

    Viking Digital does not accept product returns. However, we do provide a 90-day warranty on all retail products.
