ps3/xbox360 controllers on your pc

Postby Des » Mon Oct 03, 2011 10:02 pm

I came across an interesting application while trying to find a way of getting my ps3 controller to work on my new system running windows 7. What I found was very interesting because it allows you to use ps3/xbox360 controllers with wireless( blue tooth ) connection to your computer.

I have personally tested it and it works great with my windows7 and ps3 controller but I do not have blue tooth :( so I use my mini usb wire from an old mp3 player I got long time ago. Something to be aware of is that it is not compatible with all blue tooth connections, you will need blue tooth 2.0 or higher so that basically means the older blue tooth connections will not work.

They also have a bluetooth that you can buy which works great with their application:

If you like your ps3 controller as much as I do and want to use it with browser games/emulators/pc games/others then this is definitely worth looking into. But as a word of caution for those who play around with this stuff is that you can potentially do damage to your system in the process if you are not careful.

The information that I provided is only to guide a person in setting up a controller to work with potentially any flash game including CSK. How to install windows 7 is not a discussion that is suited for this forum thread.

I have windows 8.1 now.
I do not think Motion Joy has a version that I am looking for.
I have a PS3 controller...
Do you know how I can set it up with the windows I have now?
If you do not know, its alright, I may find out sooner or later.

If you can not get that to work you can also try XInput Wrapper:

XInput Wrapper is a different application than motioninjoy, if you are going to use XInput Wrapper then I would recommend you uninstall motioninjoy.
