Sixaxis driver for Mac

Recommended Posts

think this is right forum move if i'm wrong. Also this isn't my work i'm just posting for others since I came across it.

I have recently bought a PS3 controller with the intention of getting it working on OSX. I have been successful, and will be released a GPL OSX driver shortly.

The HID descriptor reported by the device appears to not support the spacial information reported by the controller, or the pressure information reported by almost all of the buttons on the device. I am working on a means to expose this to normal applications in OSX, although I have not yet decided how.

Using information gathered around the internet I also believe it will be relatively simple to add Bluetooth support to use the controller wirelessly. However, this is not yet complete.

Thus, as an interim solution for people who just can't wait for my finished driver, I provide a basic driver which simply allows the controller to work on OSX:

Version 0.01

Please note that the new additions will be fairly quick to implement and so this driver will not be current for long.
