  1. Download and install GlovePIE
    • GlovePIE download page The GlovePIE site appears to have been hacked. Here is the file that I have: GlovePIE download link
    • Any version should work, but I've had trouble getting 0.45 working. Try 0.43 without Emotiv support if you have any trouble.
    • To install GlovePIE, extract the .zip file somewhere, like maybe "C:\Games\GlovePIE".
    • To run it, run the executable ("GlovePIE.exe" or "PIEFree.exe") in the directory you extracted it to.
    • You can also right-click and pin it to your taskbar or start menu.
  2. Download and install PPJoy
    • PPJoy is a virtual joystick driver used by GlovePIE and the Descent scripts found here.
    • There is a problem with the PPJoy .exe file where some virus scanners think it's a virus. This is probably due to the fact that it installs a device driver with a test-signed certificate, because normal signing costs money. It works fine for me, but you must use at your own risk. If you really want to play it safe, you can download and compile the source code yourself.
    • Since PPJoy uses a test certificate, you must turn on test-signing in Windows. I'm not here to discuss the security implications of that; you can Google it if you're paranoid, but here's how you do it:
      1. Open Command Prompt as an Administrator.
      2. Type bcdedit -set testsigning on
      3. Restart your computer.
    • PPJoy download link
    • Open the .zip file and run the .exe within.
    • Windows may warn you once or twice that it can't verify the publisher. Choose install anyway.
    • Run PPJoy. Click the "Add" button to add a virtual joystick. The default options are correct; click "Add". Click "Done".
    • At this point, you may need to restart your computer. The program doesn't say you need to, but I've found from experience that it doesn't work properly until you do.
