How to create an Android Controller for my game running on a PC

  • Hi there,

    back in the days I wrote a game that runs on Qt 5.1 on a PC. Now I want to program a small App that runs on an Android Tablet and that can be used to control the game on the PC. To start with, the App should consist of nothing more than a few sliders. On the PC program, I already implemented the necessary slots to control the game.

    How can I make the Android App communicate with the PC program? Are there some easy QT5 ways to interact over the USB or Bluetooth interfaces on the tablet device?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    AFAIK, bluetooth support is still a work in progress. In between you could use a network client/server architecture to establish a communication between both.

    Hope it helps

  • Not gonna lie, being able to use an android device as a remote for your computer would be a pretty cool thing, and not just for games.
