Here's something a bit interesting. Various first party manufacturer controllers, whether it be Joycons/DS/Xbox controller, they all seem to be having a drifting issue and iFixit explains why:

TLDW: They all use the joysticks from the same manufacturer. And the official ratings from the manufacturer could be exceeded by their Call of Duty player after only 400 hours of playing! So if you were to play for 4 hours a day lets say... That would be 100 days of playing games before the joysticks would exceed the manufacturer specifications and could start to drift!

Remember, this same joystick setup is on the $180 Xbox Elite Controller!

Final Fantasy VII gets a new must-have AI-enhanced HD Mod
https://www.dsogaming.com/pc-performance-analyses/final-fantasy-vii-ai-enhanced-hd-mod/
Back in May 2020, we informed you about an AI-enhanced HD Mod for FF7, Final Fantasy 7 Remako HD Graphics Mod. However, it appears there is another similar project for it that is easier to install and brings additional improvements.
Created by Satsuki Yatoshi, the SYW mod represents the most accurate modern take on the PC version of Final Fantasy VII. This mod uses deep learning techniques (such as ESRGAN) in order to overhaul the game’s graphics. The package includes cleaner, more detailed and higher resolution background arts. It also comes with better battlefields, world map, magic effects, and menus.
The main goal of the SYW mod is to improve the graphics as much as possible without having an oversharp and overclean effect. The mod also attempts to keep the rendering as natural as possible and constant in quality across the whole game.

That looks amazing!

I had drifting issues on my old DS4s. I just increased the deadzone and they were gone.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

So that's why all controllers fail now? Looks like an opportunity for some other vendor to promote itself and get some commands.

It would also be interesting to know who make the joycons during the 5th and 6th generation of consoles and try to get that design back.

If you thought Bloodlines 2 development couldn't look more like a trainwreck, you were wrong.

Last year I got myself a brand new PS4 slim and one stick was drifting, I disassembled it and 'cleaned' it with a brush and surprisingly drifting stopped completely, whew.

Not unexpected. All they had to do is honor the original and improve on some of its flaws, but my guess is they decided mid development they want to appeal to mainstream and fucked up everything in the process...

It's published by Paradox, the king of DLCs. Maybe they wanted to change the game to make room for the dozen of DLCs their games have and the studio didn't know how to do it without launching a clearly unfinished game.

MODS, EMULATORS & FAN PROJECTS

Jurassic Park: Trespasser VR Fan Remake in Half-Life: Alyx under development
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/jurassic-park-trespasser-vr-fan-remake-in-half-life-alyx-under-development/
Modder ‘Stevokenevo’ is currently working on a VR remake of Jurassic Park: Trespasser in Half-Life: Alyx. Jurassic Park: Trespasser featured great physics for its time, and most gamers refer to it as the “arm simulator”. And, as a fan of Jurassic Park, I’m really looking forward to it.
(...)
The modder plans to complete this VR remake by the 23rd anniversary of Trespasser’s release (October 28th 2021).
>> You'll find it at ModDB.

Valheim has a first-person mod, and it works pretty darn well
https://www.pcgamer.com/valheim-has-a-first-person-mod-and-it-works-pretty-darn-well/
While Valheim doesn't officially support mods, modders aren't letting that slow them down. There's already a mod that overhauls the construction system, and so it was probably only a matter of time until someone overhauled your Viking's perspective. Yep, there's now a mod for Valheim that lets you play in first-person mode.
And the while the First Person View mod is still a work in progress, and the game itself doesn't seem like it'd be a natural fit, it really does work surprisingly well. I ran around for about a half hour in first-person this morning, and the beautiful world looks even better when you peer through your character's eyes instead of looking over their shoulders.

Oh man i knew things where looking bad and i really really want it to be a good game. Hopefully this extra time will give them time to get a dev who knows what they are doing to work on it and take their time to make a good game.
