 Post subject: PS3 Controller not Working with MAME or Any Emulators

I have my PS3 controller fully operational with MotionJoy. The drivers are installed properly, the application is showing it recognizes the controller, I have a profile setup for the controller, and everything from within the MotionJoy application seems to be operational.

With that said, I have hyperspin on my computer along with many other emulators, including MAME. The PS3 controller actually works within Hyperspin menu (scrolling and selecting games), but once I enter into an emulator (MAME, PS2, PS1, Nintendo, etc) the controller no longer works. My arcade joystick works just fine with the all emulators.

What could be the problem??

I'm gonna take a crack at this... don't know if it'll be much help though..

Have you checked any of the emulators to see if the controller is detected for use in-game?
For example MAME, on some occasions does not auto-detect any 'joysticks' unless the feature is turned on.
I see that you have a profile setup... did you try it WITHOUT your profile? That could be the cause.
Better yet, did you restart the computer/Restart the MiJ Tool (exiting and reopening)/ reinstall the MiJ drivers?

(Alternate Solution: Map the PS3 to Keyboard Keys, which IMO, should only be used as a last resort :/ )

1. There really isn't a feature within the emulators to detect for PS3 controllers.

2. You need to choose at least one profile, in order to operate the controller. This is standard.

3. Yes, have restart motionjoy numerous times. It works, picks up the controller like it should and works within Hyperspin (all stated above), but no emulators.

4. Alternate solution- that's exactly what motionjoy does within "Profiles"

Thanks for your attempt though Nick....
