PS3 controller not recognized and can't remap buttons for Parallel core (N64)

Recommended Posts

So basically like title says I go into a game and either my wired PS3 controller is not recognized and I have to quit or I get in hit F1 go to quick menu control input and can't change a single button.  Well actually by freak occurrence it let me change my select button to "5" or "3" whatever that means. Is there a glossary of which number is what button so I could make a remap manually plug it in and have retroarch do it's thing.

So chances are it's because it's still using it's default driver. For PS3 controllers, I used to use MotionJoy, but that doesn't work anymore unfortunately. I did find an alternative, but I never used it. I moved on to PS4 controllers before MotionJoy stopped working.

You'll need to get that up and running so that the PS3 controller uses Xinput drivers. RetroArch should automatically see your controller afterwards.

I actually fixed by ignoring the quick menu and changed the retroarch input in the other input menu.  I switched the axis for moving with analog to the opposite and now everything works

Oh, I missed the quick menu comment! I'm sorry. Yea, the Input menu is normally where the bulk of the controller stuff should happen.
