I just grabbed the last of us, and im dreading using the controller.... I see also there is a ST for TLOU, does it work on kb and mouse good?
Ive been playing mass effect,2,and 3 on controller cuz the st kills me, and skyrim... Def better on controllers

Or maybe make the move from WASD to nav+ mouse?

either that, or use your xbox controller
that means yes, you can use your xbox controller through xim on the ps3

ofc you need to have the ps3 controller attached to the xim too as its necessary for the input transfer
bind your xbox controller and done

Yes you can remap the ps3 controller to a wired xbox controller. You will still need to ps3 controller attached to authenticate with the console though. Plug your 360 controller in and map the buttons in game on the fly, unfortunately I don't see a button map picture for the 360 controller so if you want you can contribute to our list by discovering the button names and taking a picture. Similar to this:



The last of us works really well with a mouse though. I'd recommend using a Sony Nav + mouse though. You wouldn't be able to sneak around with the keyboard very well since it's digital and will produce 100% on/off movement. The Nav's analog stick is much better for this game.

mist couldnt you just set input type to "joystick" instead of "keyboard"?
the xbox controllers analog stick should then also allow you to walk slowly, shouldnt it?

Yes but why wouldn't he just use the ps3 controller + mouse? Confused.

ill give it a shot with the mouse and ps3 controller, if its good ill get the nav....ill try binding the xbox controller and see how that goes also...


so ds3(controller slot), Mouse (MIddle slot), XBOX wired (kb slot)..... then map each button to the xbox controller.

now, will i need to have the last of us ST loaded as well?

       the LS for movement, and RS is that done automatically?, or will i have to do something in ximmanager for that?

Yes. Open up your XIM Manager and set the tlou ST to analog and assign a hotkey or make it the startup config.

for the wireless mouse the g700 is probably the best choice

for the nav you need the following asus adapter

read our xim edge long tutorial pdf, page 8 and 9 cover every step on how to get the nav working in wireless mode :)

Razer wireless works better, you have to pay more though
I have a problem with rules and got myself banned. Again.
