Greenlit!
Released on Itch.io and New Videos
Description
Release date: As soon as Greenlit
Use your controller even when you're not in-game or in Big Picture.
Never leave the couch when using a controller with PC. Control mouse, keyboard and media player. No more getting up to muck about with mouse and keyboard to launch Big-Picture or the game you wanted to play.

Mouse and Keyboard Control on the Desktop
When Big-Picture is not running, you can control the mouse with the left thumbstick and scroll with the right thumbstick.

Click the left thumbstick and you get keyboard input directly on the desktop with a nice arcade-style keyboard spiral.

Turns off your wireless controller when you turn off your PC
Never again will you have to pop out the battery to turn off the controller when you turn off the PC.

Launch Big-Picture with Guide-Button
Jump directly into the Big Picture mode with a push of a button.

Very Low CPU usage
Controller Companion makes sure to stay in the background and use as few resources as possible. It will also disable itself as soon as Big Picture is running.

Switch between PC and TV displays
Switch between your connected monitors or TV screens with the controller.

Use Controller as a Media Remote
Control your music player with the controller using Y for Play/Pause and the shoulder buttons for Previous and Next track.

Customization
You can remap the buttons in both Mouse Mode, Keybord Mode and individually for specific processes.

also ich hab mir das mal geleitet und mein erster Eindruck ist wirklich gut.
Ich hab programme in dieser richtung leider zu oft gekauf,getestet und für ungenügent befunden.
dieses programm überzeugte mich ab der ersten Minute.
9/10 punkten... vielleicht an der tastatur nur 8 statt 16 buchstaben oder eine einstell möglichkeit.

ps:wurde alles mit einem xbox 360 Controller und diesem Programm geschrieben

MihnClot: According to the itch.io site it is possible to give you Steam keys through that, if the app does get greenlit, I hope to be able to give all early adopters on itch.io keys.

PixelStuffs: It will not have DRM. You don't need Steam to run the itch.io version and if greenlit you also won't need Steam for running that version.
