Shank Profile

with one comment

I made this profile during the development of Pro 3.0, so I wasn’t able to properly announce it. It’s been available to download in the repository for a while now, or you can grab it here.

Updating Old/Broken Profiles

with 2 comments

HippoRemote Pro 3.0 breaks compatibility with some profiles from earlier versions. The simplest way to get up to date is to go into the in-app settings and tap on Restore Default Profiles. This wipes out all the profiles on your iPhone and replaces them with updated versions.

If this is a bit too severe for you, you can update profiles individually from our online repository. The repository is accessible from inside the app by tapping the “+” button on the profiles screen and choosing the Browse Online option.

Pandora Profile Updated

without comments

A user wrote in to tell us that the volume up button was no longer working in the Pandora profile. We’ve updated the profile to address this issue. Grab it here.

Unfortunately, it’s not a 100% fix. Seems like the folks at Pandora made some changes to their audio player that make it less responsive to the up arrow key (which increases audio volume). Even on a physical keyboard, tapping the up arrow key does nothing. I have to hold down the key for a while before the volume increases. The same is true for the profile.

Rocket Knight Profile

without comments

If you’re a fan of old school side-scrolling platformers, you’ll love Rocket Knight. It’s a sequel to the Sega Genesis classic Rocket Knight Adventures, and combines the classic gameplay with a gorgeous graphics upgrade.

The keyboard controls are rather frustrating — the game was clearly designed to be played with a gamepad. And with this new profile, HippoRemote Pro fits the bill perfectly.

Rocket Knight for PC is currently available on Steam.

Grab the profile here.

Clicker.TV Profile

without comments

In case you missed it, Clicker announced a TV-optimized version of their web site — Clicker.tv — at last week’s Google I/O conference.

With interface and keyboard controls implemented using HTML5, I can browse Clicker’s database of online videos Flash-free. No incessant CPU and GPU fan noise. Actually watching videos, however, inevitably kicks the fans into high gear.

Grab the profile here.

HippoRemote Extra: SlingPlayer Profile

without comments

UPDATE: Profile creation is no longer in beta! Grab all available profiles here.

From Zak Beck, a SlingPlayer profile for Sky+ and Sky HD receivers. This may not work “out-of-the-box” for other receivers, as we’re not sure if the shortcuts are the same. But since Zak’s done the heavy lifting, it should be much easier to tweak the profile for your specific setup. You can download the profile here.

Profile creation is not quite out of beta yet (it will for our 2.0 update!) so you’ll need to send us an email to get it going.
