  3. Help Me Get My PS3 Controller Working With This Game Please. I Need Help Here
3 years ago#1
Ok, I'm having alot of trouble with this, now I see so many people able to play Skyrim and pc games in general on their pc with a PS3 Controller, but I do exactly what they've done, or at least I've tried, and nothing works.

I've tried Xpadder, I have Pinnacle Game Profiler, I have MotionJoy, and not one works. I do everything the people who have written up instructions tell others to do, and it never works. No matter what I do my controller never works in game, and it's really starting to piss me off to no end cause I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.

So if anyone can help like walk me through this, help me get my ps3 controller to work on my pc I'd really appreciate it, I'm honestly getting desperate here....

when using motioninjoy, set it to Xbox 360 controller emulatiopn, then run the game.

This. Sadly, you can't use ANY of the Playstation options. You have to choose "XBox 360 Controller Emulator". NONE of the Steam games, or even Steam's Big Picture, will work without it. GTAIV, Skyrim, Big Picture, they all need you to set it to "XBox 360 Controller Emulation" to make it work.

Sacrifice $50 and buy a 360 controller. You'll be happy you did. I was pretty much married to my PS3 controller, but eventually got tired of having to find workarounds to make it work with each game I played. Finally bit the bullet and bought a 360 controller and it's been gravy ever since.

Motionjoy makes a PS3 controller work perfectly fine.

Just be careful of using this program. It has bad drivers and can crash your system. I have had this happen to me on my system dozens of times.

I recommend x360ce, it works to near perfection, only problem is that it causes it to "crash" when you turn off the game, but nothing like that happens during gameplay. also I recommend using a mod to change the labels to PS3 icons, search ps3 at skyrim.nexusmods.com
