The SIXAXIS controller can be used on Windows PC.
As is the case with it under Linux(jimparis's post), it works as USB HID device that needs special initialization under Windows.

The instruction to make it to work properly is as follows:
1. Download and install the filter driver in libusb-win32 (libusb-win32-filter-bin-x.x.x.x.exe).
2. Download ps3sixaxis_en.zip from here.
3. Unpack ps3sixaxis_en.zip.
4. Plug the SIXAXIS into your PC.
5. Run ps3sixaxis_en.exe once.
6. Push the PS button on the SIXAXIS once if it seems to be sleeping.

Thanks for the info... but I can't get it to work? I read somewhere else that this method worked (that's how I found this page), but when I tried it my PS3 SIXAXIS still won't respond on my PC... it's just charging.

Has anyone else tried this? Did it work? What might I be doing wrong?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

nevermind I got it... works great! :)
(I just tried running ps3sixaxis_en.exe from command line rather than double-clicking the file in windows and then it worked... maybe it was buried too deep in my drive or something. Anyway, great work k1... thanks!

Hello

I'd like to get the accelerations values (X, Y, Z) of the controller using DXinput.
It seems not to be exposed by the driver. At least I cannot see it in the controller panel.

I'd like to understand what the ps3sixaxis_en.exe is actually doing ?
Is it used to register the buttons and axis to the input controller ?
Could you give some infos about this application ?

Thanks

That program send the wake up sequence to activate the sixaxis controller. Like the para para paradise controller before t, it requires a non-standard initialization sequence to turn on the device.

When I run the program in command line it says found 5 busses. I did everything the way it has said to multiple times, but no luck. None of the buttons work. Any help?
