Why do I need Intiface® Central?

Intiface® Central provides a way for applications to control intimate haptics/sensor hardware, via the Buttplug Library. Using Intiface® Central means applications are not required to upgrade when Buttplug or Intiface® Central does, so with our backward compatibility guarantee, all Buttplug applications back to v1 should work (possibly with new hardware that didn’t even exist when the application was written!) for as long as this project exists.

Do all applications that work with Intiface® Desktop work with Intiface Central?

Yes. Intiface® Central supports all applications that Intiface® Desktop did, plus many more in the future.

Some applications that used Intiface® Desktop’s specific installation setup may require some changes in usage. If you find you are having problems with an application in Central that used to work in Desktop, please contact the author, or let us know via one of the contact methods above.

What applications are available to work with Intiface® Central?

Apps and Games that work with Intiface® Central can be found on the Buttplug Awesome List

How can applications connect to Intiface® Central?

Intiface Central allows for other applications to connect via websockets (ws://) currently. IPC and WebRTC connections are planned for a future release.

Windows/my web browser is reporting that the installer a virus, should I be worried?

For some reason, the installer software we use for Central is sometimes flagged as a virus. This is despite us using secure signing to verify that we built the app (and yes we checked our CI supply chains). If your browser refuses to download the .exe installer, we recommend using the .msix or microsoft store version instead. The zip version is intended for advanced users (as it is just the bare application with no installers).
