XBox One Controller Battery Indicator v1.3.0

A tray application that shows a battery indicator for an Xbox-ish controller and gives a notification when the battery level drops to (almost) empty.

It was originally written for the XBox One controller since Microsoft dropped all visual hints for low battery, but it should work with any gamepad that can be addressed via XInput (which should be all controllers that work in XBox-controller-enabled games).

(The green download button at the top is for the source code package)

When more than one controller is present, the tray icon will cycle through the status display every 5 seconds.

When a controller reaches low battery level, a notification is displayed.

Controllers reported as working/being recognized so far:

XBOne + dongle
XBOne Elite + dongle
XBOne S + dongle
XBOne S + Bluetooth

Currently known issues/limitations:

initial recognition of a newly connected controller can take a while. It will be displayed as "waiting for battery level data" at first but should switch to battery level after ~10 seconds and a button press. (This might be a limitation of the XInput API.)


You can now change the language of the tool and its notifications (thanks @RogerUP13 for the code). Since the languages are embedded in the code, I'll update this release every once in a while when new translations get submitted without changing the version number. So if your language is still missing, check back later. Or, submit a translation. You can find details and a how-to in issue #3 and on Reddit.
All system tray icons now have multiple resolutions (the old 16x16px and new 48x48px versions). That should enhance the icon quality on high-res (4k) screens.
You can enable a notification sound that plays on top of the toast notification when battery hits the "empty" level (thanks @Igvaioli for the code). This should help when you play games in fullscreen and don't see the toast. Optionally, you can also loop the sound until battery returns to a good state. Note that the sound file has to be in .WAV format, if you don't have one at hand you can find several under C:\Windows\Media.
The low battery notification should now auto-vanish when the controller goes to any other state.
Less file clutter! All the needed resources are now embedded in the program, so no more need for all those separate DLL files.

When you upgrade from an older version, please delete the old .exe and all .dll files and then simply extract the new .exe file from the archive. The .config file only has to be extracted when you don't have one in the folder yet. Please check your settings in the context menu after first start since they might not carry over from the old version.
