PS3 Controller on Mac

Ok guys...per admins request and to help him out, here is a tutorial on how to use your ps3 comtroller with your mac...

First thing is to pair your controller with your mac via bluetooth. 

Step 1

Turn bluetooth on on your mac 

Plug controller into your mac via usb just as you would the playstation

Your mac should recognize it and it should show up on the list of devices

Press the PS button on the controller and disconnect it from your mac

Done

Now to config the controller use the program "Joystick Mapper"

Here is the download link------>http://www.mediafire.com/?rt2ddng3wvkid83

Once thats installed here is a video tutorial i made to show you how to set it up------>http://youtu.be/25Tcfia8Msg?list=UULE5xzmaF5Yr6gm8ZvBjA3g

Enjoy!

You mean yoiur bluetooth

You mean yoiur bluetooth connection between your controller and mac? Cause the joystick mapper is just a program. You have to leave it running in the background while playing your games.
