Random: This tool lets you play ‘Just Dance’ to your pleasure on any console
We are the lucky ones on Switch. Just Dance allowing us to get straight into the groove of things by allowing us to use our Joy-Cons. To play the 2022 version on Xbox Series X, Series WILLor PlayStation 5however, you need to download an app on your phone.
Okay, that’s not really too much trouble, is it? But there’s something about motion controls and Joy-Cons that make it more fun to play than just downloading an app. You can’t even use the Kinect sensor or anything to play it on your shiny new Xbox (you can on Xbox One, though).
Luckily, Reddit used redphx which created a tool that allows dancers to use their Joy-Cons on any console they want. Thanks to our sister site Pure Xbox for discover this!
Called JoyDance, it’s a pretty technical piece of the kit that takes a bit of reading to set up. This tool basically pretends to be Just Dance Controller App and it senses your Joy-Cons movements and sends them to the game console.
To make sure it works perfectly, redphx’s code requires:
- PC/Mac/Linux with bluetooth support.
- Python 3.7+ and pip Setting.
- 1 to 6 Pleasure-Disadvantage.
- Its ENCOURAGE arrive:
- Using a Bluetooth dongle because the built-in Bluetooth would be bad (otherwise you’ll be constantly disconnected while playing). Make sure you buy a dongle that supports game controllers, not just audio devices. Not all software protection devices support Mac/Linux, so be sure to check compatibility before purchasing.
- Use the Nintendo Switch to update the Joy-Con to the latest firmware and calibrate its motion sensor. Ask your friends or take it to the play store if you don’t have one.
This tool has only been tested on Xbox Series S and Switch (just in case you want to have fun) for the last couple of years, but users have reported that it is extremely accurate with no lag issues. .
You can view the code and detailed instructions and download the tool yourself GitHub. And even if you don’t have Just Dance, it’s amazing to see the amount of time and effort fans put into creating fun gimmicks for the games they play. Maybe someone can now have a camera that works with the Switch?
