Can anyone tell me how to or if I can set up a ps3 controller on a pc? Googled it but I'm not getting very clear instructions
How old is the controller? This one is for the newer Dualshock 3 controllers if you have those (replaced sixaxis in early 2008)
I've been using Motioninjoy, it detects the PS3 pad as an XBox360 controller which seems to be the only thing what some PC games support. Works fine on Fallout New Vegas at least. I've got the older SixAxis pad, so I'm not sure if it's different with a Dualshock.
Don't you start!
I know, but try playing Fallout 3 on the PS3 for 100 hours, and then trying to play the "sequel" with a mouse.
Did that myself, actually. Didn't have a proper PC when Fallout 3 was released so got it on PS3, played it for around 70 or so hours (then I got interested in Fallout 1 and 2). Playing New Vegas was much more comfortable with a mouse and keyboard, for me at least.
Motioninjoy is good. Here's an easy to follow guide to settings it up:
got the motion joy method working, thanks for all the replies.
hey, so I got motionjoy working but for one problem, the right analog stick is backways, if i push it forward/backward the camera rotates right and left, and if I push it left or right the camera goes up or down, anyone know how to fix this?
Calibrate option within motion joy
Calibrated it a few times and still getting the same thing, if you could go into more detail I met get better results.
Try opening up the motioninjoy settings and click the radio button "xbox 360 controller emulator". Then click on enable a few times to get it working.
When motionjoy is open you should have option 3 selected.
Go to control panel /devices/ montion joy controller and try the windows calibration.
There may be an "invert" option in your game which could be causing it.
