Hi gbatemp, I didn't want to open a new thread for this, but I honestly lost hope. I have been trying to connect my new ps3 controller to my windows 8.1 pc but things are getting so stinking complicated. Here is where I am: Finally, after so much installing/uninstalling/rebooting I was able to get my ps3 controller to connect to my computer (I think). I installed the scp driver and I am currently in a state where my bluetooth dongle lights up, and the "1" red light on my ps3 controller lights up as well. Oh, and when I run the scpdriver monitor, it seems that my controller is wirelessly connected. Now I am have issues connecting to emulators. I have no idea how to do so. I downloaded ppsspp and ran it on my computer, but it isn't picking up my ps3 controller at all. I googled here and there and I was pushed toward trying something called "xpadder" even though I have no idea what it does exactly. Xpadder was not running properly on my cpu. I figured out that it needs compatibility mode to run. Xpadder is now not detecting my ps3 controller at all. I really don't know what to do. This is what I am trying to achieve: 1. I want to use my ps3 controller as a mouse. 2. I want to use my ps3 controller on my emulators (ps2, psp, n64, snes....) 3. I want to connect my ps3 controller wirelessly WITHOUT a bluetooth dongle, rather, using my built in bluetooth instead. I was not able to achieve any of these and was hoping someone could chime in and help a noob who has never emulated anything on their computer before. I greatly appreciate it.
