Xbox 360 controller on PS3
« on: 01:38 PM - 03/27/08 »
Im just curious if it is possible to use the wireless receiver you can purchase for your pc (to use an xbox 360 controller) and link it to your playstation 3 using XIM. Personally i HATE the playstation 3 controller. Why oh why after 7 YEARS can they not think "Hm, this controller was NOT designed with FPS or even driving games in mind, its been 7 years, lets change the design." Instead, they figure lets leave it in its hand cramping glory and just slightly modify 2 of the shoulder buttons. Im not a fan boy of either system, i just have to say WAKE UP SONY. You have an AMAZING console. Why are you allowing it to be let down by using such an out dated piece of hardware? Anyway, back to the subject, Anyone know if this is possible? I know it is possible to use any pc input device on the xim. But this is a little different...

Thanks

I would guess this is possible. Hell, he got a Wiimote to work on a 360 with XIM. Can you get the controller buttons and sticks to appear in the button menu on XIMconfig?

With the right adapter and the GlovePie software, pretty much anything is possible.

I've wanted to do this but can't seem to figure it out.

It looks like using glovepie you can get all the digital buttons on the 360 controller to emulate keyboard or mouse key presses so you can make those work that way.

You can get one of the 360 controllers analog sticks to work by making the analogue stick emulate the mouse in glovepie. You cannot however make the other analogue stick work. You can make it work digitally (ie full left or full right etc) but not with analogue movement.

Ok spent 15 minutes and got something reasonable working. It's not perfect but i'll leave it up to everyone else to tweak it to perfection.

First grab XAE and extract it somewhere, make a new file in the profiles directory called 360.ini put this in that file

Code: [Select]
"800 DPI - Ingame = max X+Y"

5
6




















1
TAB
0

Now grab glovepie and paste this into the script part

Code: [Select]
// Type your program here, or click the GUI tab to autogenerate it!


if (joy1.z > 0.1){
Key.Two = true
wait 0.01
Key.Two = false
}
if (joy1.z < -0.1){
Key.Five = true
wait 0.01
Key.Five = false
}

key.F5 = joy1.Button5
key.f6 = joy1.Button6
Key.Up = joy1.Pov1Up
Key.Down = joy1.Pov1Down
Key.Left = joy1.Pov1Left
Key.Right = joy1.Pov1Right
Key.Six = joy1.Button10
Key.three = joy1.Button9
Key.BackSpace = joy1.Button7
Key.Enter = joy1.Button8
Key.nine = joy1.Button3
Key.eight = joy1.Button2
Key.seven = joy1.Button1
Key.zero = joy1.Button4
//Mouse.x += MapRange(Joystick1.pitch, -1,1, 0,1)
//Mouse.y += MapRange(Joystick1.yaw, -1,1, 0,1)

//Mouse.x += joy1.pitch/10
//Mouse.y += joy1.yaw/10

//Mouse.xy = [(mouse.CursorPosX + joy1.pitch/10) , mouse.cursorposY + joy1.yaw/10]

debug = mouse.DirectInputX

mouse.directinputx += joy1.pitch*50
mouse.directinputy += joy1.yaw*50



//joy1.pitch= 0
//joy1.yaw = 0





To use hit Run in glovepie and then start up XAE, your 360 controller will now control your PS3 :)

Things that need tweaking are the senstivity in XAE, the translation exponent in XAE and that 50 that I am multiplying the controller movements by in the glovepie script.

If you find some good settings or improvements please post back for everyone to enjoy.

As someone that doesn't own a 360 yet. Can someone explain why you would want to do this? Does that controller provide something unique?

Some people like the 360 controller better than the PS3 controller. It's a little easier to hold and a little more ergonomic. My favorite controller of all time is the original xbox controller....it's pretty much the same as the 360 controller.

Thanks alot for that Neemz. Now all i have to do is get my hands on a XIM  :-\ Just wondering how the response on the shoulder buttons is. Do you have full control over them or are they full on/full off?

It is sad to say that Sony have been extremely lax in their redesign of the controller for PS3. Last major redesign i heard they were doing was for the dildo/boomarang shape. Instead of thinking, hey, we have an amazing peice of hardware (The PS3), why not make a controller to match?Sony has instead decided to stick with a 7 year old design that just wasnt made for todays games. All they have done is a half assed attempt at making the bottom two shoulder buttons more analogue. and failed miserably. With the 360 controller you have full control over the shoulder buttons, they are much more sensative/responsive than the ps3 controllers. I have found that you dont have nearly the amount of control (ie for throttle) on the PS3 controllers as you do the 360 controllers. Also, i personally have found my thumb starts to cramp up after an hour or so of gaming with the PS3 controller than the 360 controller.
