    I decided to sync my Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to my ps3, (My ps3 controller don't work no more.) didn't think it would at all but it dose half work! The buttons are swapped and things like the L2, R2, and right stick don't work. That got me thinking, dose there happen to be an app that can take the input and turn it into ps3 control inputs? (Like how HIDtoVPAD works on WiiU.) I don't think there is but I'm curios enough.

    there is a controller tester homebrew app here. it can help you figure out what all the buttons do (or dont do). normally you have to use ps button to back out of the app. if you dont have a controller that can exit the app, just push the power button on ps3 and let go...it will shut down normally on its own in a moment or two.

    I guess PS3XPad wouldn't work with a Switch controller unless you made your own config? I can't even get it to work with a Dualshock 3 to remap buttons.

    I'll give that a try, this will help me understand how it works a lil better

    Hmm. I give that a go just in case.

    OK heres what I got so far:
    * The Dpad Works fully
    * Start and Select work
    * The Face buttons work but the buttons are swapped. (A is Cross, B is Square, Y is Circle, and Y is Triangle)
    * The Left Stick Works but not at full range
    * The Right Stick Doesn't work
    * L3 And R3 Work
    * L1 And R1 Work
    * L2 and R2 are working in the Tester, but not in games. (I'll have to look into this)
    * Home Button doesn't work

    I think the reason I can't get PS3XPad to work is because I don't use Webman I use sman which is sorta similar but I think it requires Sman to be active to work. I could be wrong but that's my theory.

    Does anyone know for sure if PS3XPad is incompatible with sman? I thought sman just used the webman plugin.
