While I see no real practical reason to use the Windows 10 Streaming app to actually play a fighting game (more lag, video compression, etc.), I was impressed by the quality of the app, especially when set to “Very High” quality on a wired network. The one real major problem I’ve run into so far: lack of unofficial XBox controller (FightStick) support.
So far I have tried both the MadCatz TE2 (PS4 and XB1 versions) and a 360 MadCatz TE R1 (modded w TEKitty) and so far none of these will work (in any of their modes) with the Windows 10 Xbox One streaming app. I’m not crying or anything because I can just go play on the console directly, but I’m curious to see which FightSticks work with the Xbox streaming app. I saw a video of a guy who got KI Streaming to work using a Qanba stick, and I’m almost convinced that Qanba’s complete (illegal) spoofing of the Xbox 360 controller’s PCB, or a padhack using an XB1/360 PCB is all that will work right now because there’s a detection routine in the app checking for “real” Xbox controllers. At this point, everything but a Xbox controller (360, XB1, or something that appears to the PC as such) bounces back a message: “This PC isn’t connected to an Xbox controller. Attach one and try again.”
If anyone else is playing around with this, please share your results here. It’d be appreciated if only for the knowledge.
