The game needs the Portal of Power.

With the recent sys_usbd emulation improvements and the Portal of Power UI, I can now start playing this game without any extra bootstrapping. The Portal of Power UI is pretty awkward to use, but here are the steps:

- Open Portal of Power UI from the menu and create "New" file, save it as a .sky somewhere
- Select the skylander ID you want it to be and press "Update"
- Launch the game
- In-game, go into the Settings -> General menu and select "Reset broken toys" - this will initialize the data in your newly created file
- You will probably want to do this with a few .sky files in advance so you can quickly switch later
- Start playing. Any time you need to switch characters (after losing a life, etc.), select "Load" on the PoP UI, pick the .sky file you want, and then press "Update"



Please move this to Ingame at the very least as I haven't done much verification of long-term play. It is possible that there is an issue where autosaves will hang and desync the emulator threads, but I will test more later.

e: oh yeah,

Game freezes for some reason, when I use Vulkan.  Note that I am on a laptop 

This is my first post ever in forums so apologizes if the log is wrong (its the only one I could find) and if I'm missing some information.

I'd like to know if it's possible to use 2 skylanders at the same time for multiplayer, any idea?

Is there any way to actually use the portal of power, I plugged it into my computer and it recognizes the portal, but I can find a way to actually use it in-game.

The original code change lists some steps you have to go through:

To make it work on linux:
You need to add:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0666"
To a rule file in /etc/udev/rules.d/
Note that this give r/w access to all usb devices by default, if you want to specify a specific device you can use:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="ABCD", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1234", MODE="0666"
changing idVendor&idProduct values to the VID/PID of the device you want to allow.

To make it work on windows:
You need to change the driver of the accessory you want to use to WinUsb one with zadig: https://zadig.akeo.ie/
You can revert drivers through device manager, the device will be listed under "Universal Serial Bus Devices", right click on it, Properties => Driver => Update Driver => Browse my computer for driver software => Let me pick... => USB Input Device(or whatever the previous driver was).

There is currently no way to play co-op on Skylanders Giants. The game is playable with the Portal UI imbedded in rpcs3. I will try my best to implement a 2 player option. I can't do this on my own. If you know how to help please send me a message.
