PS3 Dualshock 3 Controller Support?
#1
I saw in the options where I can use a Dualshock 3 controller, which I have. It says it requires "libusb". I did a bit of research and I'm still a bit lost. I saw where you can use Bluetooth to get it to work wirelessly, which is what I want to do.

I decided to post this to get the most up-to-date info on this. I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Bluetooth on my computer. I have open USB and USB 3.0 ports if I need them of course.

So, can you give me a walkthrough on how to do this thing? Currently the option to use a PS3 controller is faded out - I suppose that's because I don't have libusb.

Please link to reliable sources where I can get the most up-to-date versions. I was not able to find official sites so everything just looked sketchy to me. Sorry, but I'm naturally very careful about downloading.

Get motioninjoy and the modified lilypad version from there as well. Just follow instructions on wiki, it works very well.

Seems that you have to replace the current lilypad.dll with an old lilypad.dll. It won't work with the current lilypad.dll that's in PCSX2 now. I'd rather keep what the PCSX2 team works with than modified plugins... I'd also lose all my LilyPad configuration.

I'd rather do it the way PCSX2 recommends, and that's to use libusb. But, would motioninjoy allow me to use wireless capabilities? Ultimately, by the end of this I want to be standing up away from my computer using my PS3 controller to play my game wirelessly. It'll be great because I play games on the big screen using an HDMI cable. The wireless is most of the point of all of this, otherwise it's all for naught.

Hey, PCSX2 team, how about you include an already working motioninjoy plugin with your newest releases?

I can play on PCSX2 using my Sixaxis. Just read the tutorials on Motioninjoy how to configure your bluetooth connection and it works without any problems.
I haven't had to change any of the plugins.
Beware - not every bluetooth dongle/card works with motioninjoy. Most do, some don't.

Mine won't work without replacing the current plugin with their plugin. I'm using their newest buildbot release.

Well, I'll save my current plugin somewhere else and install the modified plugin I guess.

Yes would be nice if they released the source (as they are forced to by the GPL actually...) of the modified Lilypad so the devs knew what they changed to implement it in our code.

I'm stuck. It tells me to connect a controller and I connect my PS3 controller via usb and nothing happens.

Am I supposed to be using some kind of PC version of the PS3 controller? Because I've just taken my ACTUAL PS3 controller and plugged it into my PC.

You can just rename their lilypad dll - it's not particular about what it's name is (and I agree about the source comment). After connecting your controller, go to Driver manager tab and select install all, then click the pink enable button on the Profiles menu. The UI is a mess, yeah, but it works. You have to re-enable your chosen profile every time you reboot or switch profiles btw.

as far as im aware, it just forces the controller to wake up by sending the required power state HID command

I just gave up on it and used my wireless logitech controller. Their software may be helpful, but it's a mess. It seemed like too much trouble to figure out when I have a perfectly capable wireless controller that's already got a layout almost exactly like PS3 that already works with lilypad. With the adjusted sensitivity in lilypad my controller works great now. I think I'll be keeping to this.

If you want the source code you could try to contact them I suppose - if you really care that much, haha.
