The legendary Steam Summer Sale is coming soon. Prepare yourself by setting up your favorite PS3 controller as a PC gamepad by following these quick and easy steps!
This is how I play my PC games through Steam. Highly recommend it!!
i've been doing this for 4 years. How is this news!?
So have I. However, as you may know; There are always newcomers. In fact, Motionjoy was around a year or two before I jumped on. Miller lite and Budweiser still advertise ... because if they didn't there respective products would fade. This is a good thing.
Yup, really old. The only thing people need to fix is to switch the shoulder buttons. I played Fallout New Vegas and some other games with MotionJoy years ago.
I'm thankful that this was posted so I don't have to go out and search for this info.. Wanted to play dcuo on my laptop since my PS3 ylod on me
Don't be mean, mate. You know there are ppl who aren't everyday experimenting like you and me. Maybe this could give them a hint or hopefully just do the job for them.
It may not be news to you... But it is to me, I had a feeling that its doable, however never thought of investigating the matter lol. Gonna read this article and find out how.
Me to but motion joy was a real joy when I found it, basicaly because you can turn xbox 360 emulation, so no need for setting up controlls for games.
It's not. It's an article ;)
I just plug in my wired xbox controller, no need to config and most games are already mapped for it. That being said, if all you have is a PS3, this is a great guide.
Yep. I've been using it for emulators for years now. I haven't played many PC games with it, though. The only ones I can think of are Skyrim, Arkham Asylum/City, and Lego Batman with my girlfriend.
Have you tried using your ps3 controller for SWTOR? I have the game, but I tried with the mouse and keyboard but have failed miserably. I am not used to playing computer games. I am also hoping that one day they will make this ftp.
Oh yeah, Motionjoy... I use this all the time for emulators and PC games. Works like a charm!
i remember trying motionjoy a couple of times, never worked.
I tried it with left 4 Dead, one of the joysticks didn't work. However the Xbox controller works right away like a charm.
I was actually using MotionJoy this morning. It's a little tricky, but it works perfectly fine
make sure to set it to Xbox 360 controller emulator
Motionjoy is not recommended for Retards or for those under the age of 5. side effects may include: non functional software, uncontrollable games, confusion. motionjoy works fine. lol :) edit: meaning... if you're retarded,- you will have problems.
Lol - I been using this an Emulating Wii. Its pretty funny playing 2 Player New Super Mario Bros with a xbox 360 and PS3 pad. Ain't no one gonna call me fan boy!
i just plug up a 360 controller via usb.. just works automatically.
The wireless USB dongle is soooo much nicer. I just love it together with a kickass HTPC on a 47" monitor. Yummy.
I have the new PC usb usb dongle black xbox controller. Works great for non fps games for me.
Yeah, but to those who don't have a 360 controller, this is an awesome solution. I could have gone out and bought one, but this saved me around 35 bucks when I discovered I could just use my PS3 controller.
How to use a USB Xbox 360 gamepad on a PC: Just plug it in.
Wow thats amazing!!!! To bad I dont like the 360 gamepad. So I will follow some quick and easy steps to use the gamepad I prefer.
I have to agree with you. It's pretty awesome. Although I'd never use a gamepad over the good old keyboard and mouse unless I was playing a racing game.
@allyc4t That's not what he said, but nice spin, goes well with your avatar.
OR download and use Xpadder. Also a excellent program.
And put up with THAT dpad? Hell no. Use motioninjoy in 360 mode. Best of both worlds!
I tried using this to play Half Life 2, but i could figure out how to use the analog sticks, such a noob i know, but if someone helps me, i wont be Would a PS3 controller work with StarCraft 2? Edit: I knew i was gonna get that, i plug my laptop into my awesome tv to play SC2, i then use a wireless mouse (it isnt the greatest) I cant be bothered to buy a keyboard just to play one game, you dont even need a keyboard to play SC2 its the only game i play on my pc (laptop)
You can't be serious- using an analog stick to play an RTS? You'll be crushed. Mouse + keyboard is the only way for that genre
Gamepad + StarCraft 2? Yikes.
"you dont even need a keyboard to play SC2" lolwut Anyways, in Motionjoy/DS3 Tool, you have to set it to "Xbox 360 controller emulator" for the analogue sticks to work. The "Playstation 3" mode, by default, has analogue sticks turned off. Although you can change that, it's better to stick with 360 mode since it has better compatibility with games. I also suggest you calibrate the analogue sticks and triggers by first enabling the driver, going to Devices and Printers, right click Playstation 3 Controller and click Game Controller Settings.
Well, technically you don't, you'll just be stuck in cardboard league for the rest of your days.
