Steam controller handling

Rust library to work with the Steam controller.

Request

All requests are done with a 64 bytes HID feature send, the 1st byte contains the ID, the 2nd byte the size of the packet, then the payload and the rest is padded with 0x00.

Some requests have responses, some do not, responses have the same layout as requests. In the listed responses only the payload is shown.

Check connection

When using the dongle the controller status can be checked.

  • 0xb4 id
  • 0x00 size

Response

  • 0x01 for disconnected, 0x02 for connected

Build details

Information about the device can be fetched, it's a list of key/value pairs where the key is 1 byte, and the value is 4 bytes.

  • 0x83 id
  • 0x00 size

Keys

  • 0x0a is the bootloader build date.
  • 0x04 is the controller firmware build date.
  • 0x05 is the radio firmware build date.

Serial number

Serial numbers can be requested.

  • 0xae id
  • 0x15 size
  • 0x00 for main board, 0x01 for controller

Response

  • 0x00
  • [u8; 10] the serial number

Receiver information

If the controller is in wireless mode information about the receiver can be fetched.

  • 0xa1 id
  • 0x00 size

Response

  • i32 firmware build date.
  • 10 bytes of ヽ(´ー` )ノ
  • [u8; 10] receiver serial number

Control

All controls are done with a 64 bytes HID feature send, the 1st byte contains the ID, the 2nd byte the size of the packet, then the payload and the rest is padded with 0x00.

Disable lizard mode

The so called lizard mode can be disabled.

  • 0x81 id
  • 0x00 size

Enable lizard mode

The so called lizard mode can be enabled.

  • 0x85 id
  • 0x00 size

Feedback

Feedbacks can be sent to either pad.

  • 0x8f id
  • 0x08 size
  • 0x00 for right, 0x01 for left
  • u16 for amplitude
  • u16 for period
  • u16 for count

Sensors and timeout

The gyroscope and accellerometer can be enabled or disabled and the idle timeout can be changed.

  • 0x87 id
  • 0x15 size
  • 0x32
  • u16 timeout
  • 0x18 0x00 0x00 0x31 0x02 0x00 0x08 0x07 0x00 0x07 0x07 0x00 0x30

The notification sound for turn on and turn off can be changed.

  • 0xc1 id
  • 0x10 size
  • u8 the turn on sound ID

  • 0xff 0xff 0x03 0x09
  • 0x05 0xff 0xff 0xff
  • 0xff 0xff 0xff 0xff

Protocol

There's a script in support/ to help out with reversing the protocol, the following is what I know so far.

Header

 0                   1                   2                   3
 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Type

It's a 1 byte flag.

  • 0x01 means the device is sending input.
  • 0x03 means the device is sending power events.
  • 0x04 means the device is idle.

Size

Tells the size of the packet.

Power

 0                   1                   2                   3
 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Event

It's an unsigned char.

  • 0x01 means power off.
  • 0x02 means power on.

Idle

 0                   1                   2                   3
 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
|           Something?          |      0x64     |
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Sequence

It's a little endian unsigned int, it's increased by one with every read.

Something?

Seems to get reset every time it goes from input to idle and increments in some kind of exponential curve.

Input

 0                   1                   2                   3
