    How to use a PS3 controller on PC?

    Post by Spurgun on Sat Aug 25, 2012 9:05 am

    What the title says. I want to play the PC version with my controller. I know it's doable with the Xbox controller, so can you do it with PS3 too?

    I just caved and boughtg the steam version. Horrible controls with keynoard/mouse, so I thought lets try a dual shock.

    After a few frustrating hours I finally managed to get it to work.

    Use this piece of software and find some tutorials on how to get it to work. http://www.motioninjoy.com/


    It might take some effort but if I can get it to work, so can you.

    ps: I use windows 7 64bit

    Do a restoration point before installing motionjoy, it's really hard to remove and really buggy on some computers (bsod, lags imputs, etc).

    Odd, I haven't encountered any problem since Motioninjoy started using signed drivers. I just plug in my DS3 controller and choose the 360 Controller Emulator option.

    as above - MotionJoy will sort you out (just use USB charging cable with controller)

    I am running windows 7 x64 (up to date) and I used the 0.06.0005 version and did not have any issues with the game what so ever after reading this post

    http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t10371-play-dark-souls-ptd-with-ps3-joystick

    following this the buttons are EXACTLY as you would be used to from PS3 console and the PS button brings up the Windows Live menu for chatting etc.
