Using the Xbox One Controller with The Talos Principle

It took a bit of tinkering, but thanks to this reddit I figured it out.

While this was only tested with The Talos Principle, it should work with any game that uses SDL to handle controllers.

1. Download the latest gamecontrollerdb.txt from gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB.

2. Add the contents of the file to an environment variable called SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG.

3. Relog and profit.

Guild Wars 2 Event And Boss Timers.

Where to find

You can find the clean timer at gw2.limitlessfx.com (HTTPS Version)

Project Goals

We could not find a working timer for the new Event/Boss schedule after the April 2014 Feature Pack. So we ended up creating our own and publishing it at gw2.limitlessfx.com. Feel free to use it / link to it.

The goal was to create and maintain a Guild Wars 2 world event timer that was simplistic in design. Specifically a timer that didn't have all the clutter of ads, menus, or unnecessary images wasting much of the screen. OneOfOne later adjusted the timer so it scales down and still looks good on incredibly small screens. Maintaining mobile compatibility has remained a priority since then.
