How do I get my PS3 controller to work with this?

Works just fine with my other games I use it for on Steam, such as Psychonauts, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything on Dark Souls.

1. Google motionjoy.
2. Download and install it.
3. Set the program to emulate xbox controller.

This game is a 360 port, and has no support for any other gamepad than a 360 controller.

I already have my PS3 controller set to work with games on my PC though, hell I think it is even via motionjoy. It's just this that it doesn't want to work with.

And I know I've seen other people using PS3 controllers with the PC version, ENB does.

Alright, so my controller is working but the key bindings are..off. Circle is acting as X, start isn't doing anything, etc.

Configure it in Motioninjoy, though mine worked fine right off the bat. If the controller doesn't work at all, do this:

1. Make sure you have the latest Motioninjoy
2. Unplug other input devices, like the mouse.

Works great.

Did you set it to emulate a 360 controller?

Yep. And all the buttons are responsive on the test on motionjoy, they just aren't working the way that they should be in-game.

I had that problem at first then I mapped every key to the correct Ps3 button using xpadder.

However Checking the emulate xbox controller box in motion joy usually eliminates the need to map each key.

Ended up having to find my original dualshock 3, it worked just fine then. Ah well, wanted to find the thing anyways so gave me a good excuse to look.

Now if only the game didn't chug quite so bad at 1920x1200 on my PC X_x
