    If you use your Dual Shock 3 (or nav controller) on the PC, you're probably using MotionJoy drivers. Motionjoy's UI is riddled with ads, crashes frequently, requires an internet connection, and is lacking some basic features.

    I stumbled on a utility called "Better DS3" the other day, and I'm very impressed.

    Better DS3 is an improved driver configuration tool for MotionJoy. While it still uses MotionJoy's drivers (and requires MotionJoy to be installed), it provides a much cleaner interface. It's very stable, too.

    I'm currently using my nav controller and Better DS3 to play Aquaria on the PC. It's a godsend.

    Here are some screenshots of Better DS3

    I have a question, can I use a different controler (one bought for use for the PS3 but third party) with motion joy?

    No one answered this person's question ?

    Anyway, good question. You can try and see if the third party works. I dont like the third party controllers. Its cheap, I know.
