Here is a basic instructional exercise to get up to four PS3 controllers working through Xinput on your Windows 8/7/Vista PC. The upside of this is any diversion that Xbox 360 controllers locally work with, now PS3 controllers will as well!
This works with Windows 10 likewise, I utilize 10 on my ordinary PCs and my PS3 controllers work awesome!
- Step 1: Download and introduce Xbox 360 Accessories
Download and introduce the most recent Xbox 360 Accessories driver from:
You just need to do this on Windows 7.
Step 2: Download most recent variant and most recent upgrade of ScpServer
Download the most recent rendition and the most recent redesign of ScpServer from:
Separate the most recent rendition to a perpetual place, (for example, Program Files, System Path, and so on.) then concentrate the most recent upgrade to a similar organizer. Click yes to all when made a request to overwrite documents.
See the second to last (Optional) to perceive any reason why you need this in a changeless place in the event that you plan to utilize PS3 controllers frequently.
On the off chance that you don’t wish to do a changeless introduce, you can remove the records anyplace you need and skirt the discretionary stride.
Step 3: Plugging in the required gadgets
Connect to a USB Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR dongle (Most makers will work, I am simply utilizing a generic one, I don’t have a Bluetooth 3.0 or 4.0 dongle to test in the event that they will work. The dongle you utilize will be committed to PS3 controllers until you uninstall the drivers) and one PS3 controller by means of USB link into your PC, and sit tight for Windows to wrap up the default drivers for both.
Step 4: Installing SCPServer Drivers For PS3 Controller Xinput
Run ScpDriver.exe, wait for it to load, then snap introduce. You will be prompted a few times to affirm driver establishments, click Yes/Install on all windows that show up.
Step 5: Restart
Restart your PC.
Step 6: Open and Use ScpServer.exe
Select which controller you want to pair with.
Click Pair to match your PS3 controller with the Bluetooth dongle. Presently you’re prepared to diversion utilizing your PS3 controller as Xinput!
You can link up to four PS3 controllers by repeating this process.
You should either leave ScpServer.exe running whenever you need to utilize your PS3 controllers, OR do the do the following steps, so you don’t need to leave ScpServer running without fail.
Regardless you need to utilize ScpServer the first time when you interface a PS3 controller.
Step 7: (Optional) Creating a Windows Service for ScpService.exe
Open Command Prompt (hunt cmd.exe from the Start menu) as an Administrator then glue the accompanying:
sc create PS3SCPServer binpath= “C:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Controller\ScpServer\bin\ScpService.exe” type= claim start= auto
Replace “C:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Controller\ScpServer\bin\ScpService.exe” with the path where your ScpService.exe is found. Try not to change whatever else, and don’t alter the quotes (“”) around the path or the spaces after the = signs.
This will make another Service that will run when Windows begins so you don’t need to have ScpServer.exe run to pair up controllers. Pairing controllers work the same as on the PS3. Connect the controller to while the controller is off, wait for un-till Windows install the drivers, then unplug the controller and press PS button to link, if it doesn’t automatically pair when you disconnected the controller (it ought to, however).
Step 8: Important Information
You can use eight controllers at the same time, four PS3 controllers and four Xbox 360 controllers.
PS3 controllers will all light up their fourth light for all those which are connected after the fourth controller.
Battery levels won’t ever show for the PS3 controllers. I trust this is on the grounds that PS3 controllers send their battery level data uniquely in contrast to Xbox 360 controllers and the Xbox 360 Accessories program does not remember it.
The PS and Xbox buttons on every controller won’t open the controller information sheet (it is just intended to show four controllers)
You can tell if the Xbox 360 controllers that are player #5 or higher are associated by pressing the Xbox button. On the off chance that the ring of green lights remains totally off and does not flicker by any means, it is connected (or the batteries are dead, however, how about we trust you put in some new ones first)
Step 9: Have fun!
Have a fabulous time using your PS3 controllers with now-local support for any game that can use Xbox 360 controllers.
