If you are a developer that want to use CCAPI. You have a several option:

  • You can use the demo codes provided in the CCAPI Package for Developers (download link is below). You may find some example for a few languages such as C/C++/C#.
  • You can also use imcsx's implementation for C#, the specificity is that it is also compatible with TMAPI.
  • Finally if your programming language is not supported, or if you prefer to make your own implementation, it is possible to directly import the functions from CCAPI.dll yourself. The main functions to achieve that are LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress from the WINAPI, you can find them in a lot of languages C/C++/.net/Java, etc. 


The CCAPI (Windows) documentation is available here: Win documentation

The CCAPI (Others) documentation is available here: (Not yet)

Guys I have downloaded capital on my ps3 and my PC but when I try to connect my pa3 to the PC I click connect and it says error.  Make sure you have downloaded ccapi and make sure your firewall is disabled.  I'm trying to connect but it won't work I'm on 4.82 rebug
