SIXAXIS Controller in NOLF2

2 posts in this topic

For the console gamers out there who would rather have the feel of a controller in their hands, this is for you! The PS3 SIXAXIS controller has a mini-USB connection on the top of the controller, and it was only a matter of time before someone released a driver for Windows XP. The link is below for the download.


Install that, and run the program. Then hook up the controller and press the PS button to enable the USB connection. Windows XP will recognize it as a Game Controller. Go to Control Panel >> Game Controllers to calibrate the axises and to verify that it is working. The only negative is that the motion control does not work--but its unnecessary for FPS's anyway...on second thought, it would be cool for leaning. It does take some time to get used to.


I have the controller fully working in NOLF2 with the right analog stick for running and strafing, and the left analog stick for looking around. I am still experimenting with the controls to find the best combo. This really should work with any game out there since Windows and the driver for it is recognized as a Game Controller.
