Be aware these instructions are designed for an actual sony ps3 controller.

First, connect your PS3 controller to your PC via a USB cable and Windows should begin installing an initial set of drivers. Now, UNPLUG the controller again. Once finished, visit the MotioninJoy download site and scroll down to download the latest version of MotioninJoy driver, which at the time of this writing is version 0.7.1000. The MotioninJoy download contains a configuration tool necessary for using a PS3 controller with a PC, though once you run the initial setup, you won’t need to use it again.
Once the MotioninJoy driver downloads to your computer, locate the downloaded file and extract the contents to a location of your choosing. After the files extract, open the new program titled “MotioninJoy_071001_signed.” When the program boots, click on the Driver Manager tab and locate your controller in the subsequent Hardware Location area. Next, select Load driver and continue with the installation even though Windows prompts you about unsigned drivers. Once the installation completes, close the MotioninJoy program.

Note: Because you won’t need to use MotioninJoy again, you have the ability to uninstall the entire program from your computer if you desire. The following program — Better DS3 — requires the drivers installed, not the entire program.

Step 2: Downloading the Better DS3 Program
With the MotioninJoy drivers installed, navigate to the Better DS3 website and download the driver configuration tool. Once the download finishes, open the resulting ZIP folder — titled “BetterDS3_1.5.3,” — from the previously-designated save location using 7-Zip or a similar archive utility. Afterward, double-click the Better DS3 application to launch the software.

Step 3: Running the Program and Creating a Profile
Once the application opens, plug your wired PS3 controller into a USB slot on your PC. If using a wireless PS3 controller, connect the cable to the controller before you plug the other end of the cable into the PC. Give the machine a moment to recognize the controller, and if successful, the device appears in the box beneath the Connected DS3 Controllers section of the application window.

Next, you’ll need to create a profile which tells your computer what kind of PC controller you want to emulate, as you’re essentially mirroring the functionality of other PC-compatible controllers. For instance, if you select XInput — the Xbox 360 controller emulator — your PS3 controller acts as an Xbox 360 controller on your PC. We’d recommend using this configuration and creating a profile using XInput; it’s easily the most universal configuration when playing PC games.

To do this, click the drop-down menu which says New and select the XInput option. Once done, a new window appears with various options for customizing your controller’s respective button mapping. Afterward, click the gray Xbox 360 button in the top-right corner of the window and allow the application to automatically map the controls based on the basic Xbox 360 controller layout. Keep in mind, you’ll still have the ability to modify the button layouts as you see fit after it configures, and you even have the option to adjust the vibration strength and set your chosen profile for automatically connecting your controller upon login. Once complete, you now have the ability to use your controller with any PC game.
