What is the Lichtknarre plugin-in system?

The Lichtknarre plugin system makes the software modular so that it can communicate with emulators/games and devices. Here we distinguish between two types of plugins. Connector plugin and tracker plugin. Tracker plugins are responsible for the devices and connector plugins for the games/emulators. Lichtknarre do the playermanagement inbetween and much more.

See Pipeline

The communication is standardised by the Lichtknarre app between connector and tracker plugins.

vjoy – connectorplugin

The vjoy connector plugin sends data to the vjoy software which can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vjoystick/. In this case the emulator thinks the inputs comes from game controllers.

mouse – connectorplugin

The mouse connector plugin sends data to the windows mouse api.

wii 2 LED – tracker plugin

Tracks data from the wii device and do position calculation for 2 LEDs and send it to the Lichtknarre-Software.

wii 4 LED – tracker plugin
