  • DS4 mode has been renamed to DS4Windows to emphasise that both driver and mentioned software are required to properly function together


  • Improved DS4 output report protocol handling (#54)
  • Refined transition logic from Bluetooth to USB connection (#14)
  • Fixed incorrect report of pairing status (#86)


  • Improved performance and maintainability (#56)
  • Added manual disconnect ability to DSHMC (#46)
    • Click the frowning emoji next to the last connected timestamp
  • Improved compatibility with Ryochan7's DS4Windows (#23, #59)
    • Important: requires at least version 3.0.4
    • HidGuardian, HidHide, Exclusive Access and similar tricks are no longer required, the emulated DS4 is now a vendor defined device, which will make it implicitly "hidden" from any other common input API other than DS4Windows
    • Various improvements in compatibility with low battery and high latency LED flash effects and rumble
