    sman is a modified plugin of webman. I can't get it work and I'm trying to narrow it down if it's because I need Webman. I just prefer sman.

    No, it uses sys_hid_manager_read interface (syscall 0x1F6) to read the pad input directly from memory.

    PS3XPad uses syscalls 573 and 574 (sys_pad_dbg_ldd_set_data_insert_mode and sys_pad_dbg_ldd_register_controller) to simulate the inputs from a virtual pad.

    The standard cellPadGetData (that accepts the input from syscalls 573) doesn't work in sLaunch GUI because it paused the rsx processor to allow the direct draw to the XMB screen.

    No, sLaunch plugin in webMAN MOD reads the pad exactly the same as sMAN plugin.

    It is not related to webMAN edition or CFW version. It is the way of how the plugin works.

    Sorry but I'm completely confused. I haven't used webman much, so I don't know what that means.

    That means that slaunch menu (default GUI of sMAN that is also available in webMAN MOD) does not work with PS3XPad.

    This is slaunch if you still don't understand what I mean:

    PS3XPad works fine on XMB menu... not in VSH menus like slaunch.

    Oh gotcha, I can't even get it to work on the xmb. I added the plugin to hdd0 adding the location to boot_plugins.txt rebooted, tried it several times actually but when I reboot none of the shortcuts work. All I want it for is to remap buttons for my steering wheel it's not meant for PS3 but since I'm using a Mayflash adapter the PS3 doesn't know that. So really I would just need to remap a button like on a Dualshock 3 but I can't even do that. I tried VSH PRX Loader but nothing.
