Intiface Game Vibration Router
The Intiface Game Haptics Router allows users to reroute vibration and other events from video games to control sex hardware supported by the Buttplug Library. This currently includes:
- Games using Windows XInput (Xbox Gamepads)
- Games using Unity VR (Any Version)
Toys that support vibration or rotation are supported by the GHR:

How To Use
- Download Installer
- Install It
- Run the GHR
- Hardware will automatically be scanned for. To use the hardware, click check box next to it.
- Moddable game processes will show up in the process list. If your game process is not in the list, hit Refresh. If it doesn't show up after that, we don't support it. If you think we should support it, file an issue here or yell at qDot on discord.
- Once you see your game process, click on it and then hit "Attach".
- Note that there is currently no "Detach". The mod will stay attached until the game process ends. You can close the GHR at any time, and the game shouldn't complain, but who knows. You're hooking your game up to buttplugs, so we're firmly in YOLO land here.
Alternatively, see this youtube demo video for a quick tutorial on the software, at least, until I spend the time to build a better one once more of this is finished.
How Finished is the GHR?
The GHR is currently in Alpha phase. This means it barely works. The visualizer panel isn't hooked up, XInput isn't hooked up, there isn't even an about panel.
Expect breakage for a while, but I'm putting it out now so I can get bug reports on basic usage.
What Games does the GHR Work With?
Technically, it should support any game that uses XInput, or that use Unity VR and making the VR controllers vibrate.
That said, not all games are going to work with it in a way that is useful or fun.
For a list of games people have tried with the GHR (or the earlier version, known of the GVR) and ratings on how well they work, check out this forum thread.
Also, for Unity, there have been some issues with mods not attaching correctly to older games. This issues is being tracked here.
How does the GHR work?
We inject code into a running game process, find the rumble functions, and any time they are called, forward the information out to the GHR, which then sends it to whatever hardware you've connected.
For XInput, we use EasyHook for attaching from managed C# to unmanaged C.
What kind of events does the GHR handle?
Right now, any time a gamepad or VR controller rumbles, we pass that information on to make hardware connected to the GHR rumble.
In the future, we do plan on supporting game specific mods.
Does the GHR require putting files in the game directory?
No. All GHR mods are completely remote, require no file system writing, and only live for the process lifetime.
No one will know you put a buttplug in your game.
Can I use the GHR with games with anti-cheat mechanisms?
No. Our injection and loading process, while usually not VAC triggering, will still be caught by games like Overwatch and denied. We do not recommend using the GHR with any game that has anti-cheat mechanisms, and we are not resposible for whatever may happen to your game account if you try it.
What type of hardware does the GHR work with?
At the moment, only vibrating toys, as listed on the bottom of the front page at [https://buttplug.io].
Support for thrusting/stroking/rotating toys will be available in a future release. See this issue for more information.
What's the Intiface Panel do?
The Intiface Panel is how we deal with connecting to supported hardware. The user can either use the embedded version, or connect to a copy of Intiface Desktop.
We allow connections to Intiface Desktop so that users that requires different setups for bluetooth can be supported (for instance, having to use bluetooth through a phone or Raspberry Pi). More on this once that's actually a case we fully cover.
Will this work on Win 7/Mac/Linux?
- Currently, this should run on Windows 7, but Bluetooth will not be available. This will be coming in a future release, most likely supported via Intiface Desktop (See Intiface Panel FAQ question).
- There's a chance we could support Mac/Linux Unity games via the same mod mechanism we currently use for Unity VR on windows, and Buttplug/Intiface already supports those platforms. This mostly comes down to demand for implementation, for which there is none at the moment.
