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

Found this.

One industrious modder out there has created a simple program so you can use your PS3′s SIXAXIS controller on a PC like a game pad. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Download this archive and install the filter driver (libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.10.1.exe).
2. Unpack ps3sixaxis_en.exe
3. Plug the SIXAXIS into your PC.
4. Run ps3sixaxis_en.exe once.
5. Push the PS button on the SIXAXIS once if it doesn’t see it straight away.

Unfortunately, the motion sensing features aren’t possible on the PC (not yet as least). But still, this is pretty easy way to net yourself a free usable game pad.

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.

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:

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.
