I would like to ask a couple of questions about using a Dualshock 3 controller with a Magic NS adapter on pc in Xinput mode. Please, help appreciated.

- Just to be sure, you can completely sync a Dualshock 3 controller to this adapter on PC and use it in Xinput mode, right? Can I keep using the controller just by pressing the Playstation button?

- Does it support vibration?

- (This is kind of hard to explain...) How are the analog sticks like, since Dualshock 3 analog sticks' range covers more (A square) opposed to the typical circle most controllers do (In this case an Xbox controller.) In Xinput mode will the analog sticks' range be a circle? If not can I calibrate it to be? (Again, really hard to explain...)

1. yes with a usb cable then it should work wirelessly
2. pretty sure it does not support vibration for dualshock 3, the page says only for dualshock 4
3. I really don't have the answer to this question

If you want vibrations, your only choice is to use a software like DsHidMini instead and plug it using either usb or bluetooth if your pc supports it or use a bluetooth usb adapter.

Thanks, but I just decided to go with the 8bitdo adapter instead, which does all of this. :)
That's exactly what I use now, a bit difficult to setup because their driver isn't signed so you have to do the safe mode trick, but once installed it's works like a charm
