    Sooo I bought this controller right here http://www.amazon.com/PDP-Battlefield-Wired-Controller-Playstation-3/dp/B00DJYTGYU and I wanted to use the Xinput driver with it on my laptop, Win 7 only recognizes as ''Battlefield 4 gamepad: PS3'' however it recognizes with direct input since the triggers are only normal buttons and the middle button doesn't even work, I tried manually installing the Xinput controller driver but no dice (get it?), I also used the Xbox 360 controller emulator and it does work fine, however like I said, it doesn't recognize the triggers correctly, only as buttons.

    Is there a way to use the xinput driver with this controller? I mean, I was able to with the DS3 controller by using Scp Xinput Wrapper but it does not work with this controller.

    Third party PS3 controllers are a bit more difficult to deal with on PC than other DS3 controllers. They're generally not supported with most XInput solutions like SCP Server or 360 emulators as they're not using official/recognized hardware, and unless the manufacturer themselves release an Xinput solution there's no good way to do it sans using x360ce (but you already tried that and the triggers don't work well).

    I'm afraid you'll have to either deal with DirectInput or use another controller for PC gaming :/
