File extension .PIE
|Glove Programmable Input Emulator Format
The .PIE file extension belongs to the GlovePIE controller script. It is a standalone script file made for the GlovePIE program used to control a great number of different peripheral controllers, such as joysticks, mice, or keyboards. .PIE files are created with the GlovePIE, a scripting language interpreter specifically designed for game controller input defined in an external file - in this case a PIE file, but also supports a plain text format.
The .PIE file extension contains a text script which can be highly complex and lengthy depending on the instructions. It contains specific instructions to emulate certain mouse and keyboard functions when certain game controller commands are issued by a user. This enables users to assign different buttons on their peripheral devices to specific desired tasks. The .PIE file extension is used mainly by developers in game development, however it is also useful for amateur gamers or even advanced users who use some kinds of gaming peripherals.
The .PIE file extension is associated with the GlovePIE which allows users to customize gaming controllers in any way they want. It can be opened in any text editor, giving access to edit the code inside it. These files can be transferred directly from one PC to another, simply by sharing them over the Internet, and can be opened with supported programs such as GlovePIE or Notepad for Windows operating systems. Other similar file extensions include GLOVE, .VBS, and .DPF.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PIE) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PIE extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PIE file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PIE extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PIE extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PIE file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PIE file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PIE file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PIE file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PIE file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
