Hi SciLor, we started up there on FPSECE forum, i played with it a bit yet so i decided to register here to give you some feedback.
First let me say, that i really adore people such you and Schtruck for your work, as you give our devices extended functionality. You both should be donated by Microsoft and HTC for helping them sold some devices! (though you will not, of course ;) )
I managed to run WinMoBlue on both my devices, HTC Jade as server and HTC Oxygen as controller. Both works well, except
it sometimes crashes at exit on both. (But not allways, sometimes it exits correctly... as far as i can tell, controller on old Oxygen crashes more frequently)
Programs i used it with: gfDoom (it has configurable controls via "skin" settings)
spvDukeNukem (classic .cfg file)
as you can see, i´m mostly into FPS shooters, i´m just old classic fan, played those on PC back then... next game i tested was pocketTombRaider, as it´s another top classic, but it doesn´t worked, as it has no config options, everything is hardcoded... but while testing this i realised that bitch Lara is hard to control even with hardware joy button, as very short directional button press make her turn for much longer, thus is very hard to navigate her, thus making game unplayable... so i uninstalled and forget it.
I will do further testing if i will have more time for it, for now it seems to work with most games that allow control config, and running well enough to play with no noticeable keypress latency. One thing will be great: if you enable both controller and server writing log file upon start and exit, i will test it and send you those logs for examining them. Also, would be helpful to have on controller side Backspace/Esc button usable, pressing it allways close my controller (minimise it to background), as Esc key is in most FPS shooters used as Menu key.
And last but not least, if you´re interested, i can do beta testing for you, as you will go through any update... it would be honor for me to contribute to such great app.
Have a good day. r0b3r70s(HTC Jade)

Thank you for you review. Please next time structure it a little bit. reading that is horrible.
I am proud of being adored :D You are welcome

It "should" only crash if you do not disconnect your controller(s) (Yes you can use multiple controllers at the same time :D)

For Tomb Raider try FPseCE :D

What do you mean by a logfile? Is there any need? The keycodes you can get over the Server's screen. Also I try to keep the code as simple as I can, so there no latency problems can appear. Just give me the bugs through, just say what your did. I hate logfiles and I would like to talk to you directly

I currently plan a keyconfig for the controller, so you can exchange for example the "0" with an "ESC" command. Also I want to give the opportunity to add Touchscreen controlls on the Controller's screen.

Beta testing: The problem is, I work on software a day, test it myself and then I release it when it is working as fast as I can. Waiting for beta testers making this process slower. But anyway, feel free to use my software and report bugs :). And also spread the word and try my other software :D

PS: it is SciLor's WiMoBlue not WinMoBlue ;)
PPS: You are playing with a smartphone?! I have my Typhoon here, and that sux because it does not support pressing multiple buttons on the keypad, does your Oxygen do?

server too slow for most FPseCE games, native PPC apps and ports works better

keycodes are fine. i was after hunting bugs, like why i sometimes get red screen (not connected). if you dont like logs just forget it. Keeping the thing simple is good way to go.

short:no. i don´t need this most cases.

Ahh, Sorry, I always forget how slow everthing is, since I have my hd2 :D. Thats so fun, placing it into my car-holder and playling a round of tekken or hogs of war with my HTC Kaiser as Controller while I am wait for my girlfriend :D.

The Red-Screen happens when the connection isn't successful.
PS:
The left-softkey prints out some debug-data: It shows the last connection/disconnection. If you connect your device there should be Con-1 :D.
