DS4Windows - J2K
Heya, how to i get DS4Windows to work with emulators? Everything works fine in steam games but not a single emulator works.
The emulator does not read the controller inputs.

Hey guys, I started getting a weird glitch with my DS4 on Windows(7) today, for some reason the controller is disconnecting and immediately reconnecting while playing a game, both in USB or bluetooth mode, I've no idea what is going on, if it's a problem with DS4Windows itself or something else.

Currently using ryochans, build 1.4.115

Whenever this happens, right as it disconnects I get a UAC request from DS4Windows.

These are the logs when it happens:

Not sure if this is a bug or "feature". I have the lightbar completely turned off, and when I turn on the DS4 the light is correctly off, however after that if it goes to sleep because I take a quick break in a game or something the light comes on when I wake the controller up, and I have to alt tab from the game and go to ds4windows and click something such as rumble test and then the lightbar goes off again and I can resume playing as normal. Hope that makes sense? Smile

Using the DS4 with the official Sony bluetooth receiver.

My DS4 has recently (today) started refusing to work in exclusive mode.

I restart the PC. Nothing running. No steam, no origin, uPlay, not even Nvidia programs.

I start the tool, plug in the DS4, and "warning could not open DS4 exclusively".

I'm running windows 10 64 bit.

Literally worked fine yesterday. I cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I have two instances of HID-complaint game controller in Device Manager. If I disable one, it turns off the Xbox 360 emulated pad. If I disable the other, it turns both pads off.

What should I do?

EDIT: Fixed It. In breaking with forum tradition, I will actually explain how I fixed it.

Nvidia GeForce Experience updated when I updated my video card driver. Part of the update was a new in-game overlay, and that, for some bizarre reason, was stopping DS4Windows from accessing the controller in exclusive mode.

Solution? Go into Nvidia Geforce Experience settings, and turn off the in-game overlay.

Hopefully this helps someone who was desperately googling the issue like I was.

does anyone here knows how to use HidGuardian with DS4W?
All the explanations are so vague? :/

Honestly, I don't know how these forums work and I don't really care because you are a life savior!

I kept searching for the past week and I stumble upon this and it worked. Had to make an account to at least show that this worked for me too

Thank you so much
