    I was doing that.. I tried it on another computer and I can't even grab the latest version from there either. I happened to fix it however so thanks for the help.

    Can you map R2/L2 and R3/L3 to the rear touchpad? I want to use my dualshock 3 controller with PS3 remote play and I think using the actual controller will be easier to use than the vita's rear touch pad

    Here is a plugin that does exactly that, made by Pepsiman321 on reddit.
    If you're on 3.65 enso let me know if it works well, I haven't updated yet.

    Any idea if this should work in PS3 remote play?

    I copied the .suprx file to my ur0:tai folder, activated the plugin in the config.txt, reloaded it/restarted the Vita, but then if I remote play anything from my PS3 (like Killzone 3)... neither L2R2 nor L3R3 seem to work.

    I tried configuring the Vita with the 3 types of buttons assignment and it didn't work in either. I'm using Enso 3.60

    Has anyone else tried and managed to have it working?

    or is there any other way/app to have L2R2 and L3R3 working on PS3 remote play?

    My config.txt is:
    # This file is used as an alternative if ux0:tai/config.txt is not found.
    # For users plugins, you must refresh taiHEN from HENkaku Settings for
    # changes to take place.
    # For kernel plugins, you must reboot for changes to take place.
    # henkaku.skprx is hard-coded to load and is not listed here
    # main is a special titleid for SceShell
    # this is for modifying the version string
    # this is for modifying the version string in settings widget

    Anyone have a fix for a dead zone on the top right of the controller with the plugin installed? Playing MHP3rd and when I spot in that direction it acts as if there's a dead zone. ty in advance.

    My ps3 fake controller only works when directly plugged in with the mini USB cord with my PS Vita TV; I don't believe that the PS Vita 1000 or 2000 has enough power to drive a USB power device, though I may be wrong. I haven't used it for sometime, but I believe the controller works with and without the ds3 Vita plugin, but like I said it always needs to be plugged in and the four red LED lights are flashing all the time. Only really beneficial for multiplayer, or if I want a wired controller experience with the ds3>? :/
    I'm really just saying I have better options for single player and even a few multiplayer options before the fake controller would come into play. On a side note and interestingly enough, wired ps2 ps1 and Xbox 360 controllers can be used with an adapter, I even have a controller that is a wireless ps2 that works on PS Vita TV and ps3 with this ps2 to usb adapter Natively. the has a home button so closing an app on PS Vita TV and getting back to the XMB on the ps3 is more of a breeze .

    Is this possible without administrator permissions?

    Installing the plugin, sure

    Programming the controller, it could with the right driver (that would need administration rights to install...) coupled with an appropriate program, but I'm not sure any exists

    Why not simply get a spare HDD with your own operating system on it, if for whatever reason you can't get full privileges on the one you normally use? :)

    It'd be useful to do it before I have access to my other computer, but thank you for the help!

    Actually, I got the android app, but now it won't connect to the Vita

    How could I use this app to do it?

    Never mind, my config.txt was just jumbled up.

    does this version have the joystick issue with ds3 like ds4 does for ds4vita, where it struggles on a certain diagonal ?

    about to scoop some ds3 controllers part of a ps3 set, and probably will give a try.

    how about an app that makes the vita a dualshock? then you could use the vita as a controller for pstv
