ps3 controller bluetooth to tablet
« on: September 23, 2013, 10:02:49 PM »
Im new to this so I may have missed the post but I paired my ps3 controller with my Samsung tab 2 and am trying to play Zelda Oot on it. I can get the analog stick to work but not any other buttons. I thought I mapped it correctly through the app and it says the buttons I set are correct still but wont work in the game. Does anyone know the correct way to make this work?

Strange, never heard of a case where the stick works and the buttons don't.  A few questions:
 - Are you using an official Sony-branded controller?
 - Are you using the Sixaxis app?
 - In the mapping screen (Settings->Input->Controller), do the button icons turn blue when you press the physical button they're mapped to?
 - In the controller diagnostics screen (Settings->Input->Controller->(menu)->Controller diagnostics), are button presses detected?
 - What happens when you use the built-in PS3 input profile (can be loaded from the mapping screen)?
