    This is the controller:

    I'm trying to add a line to the plugin "PS3xPAD" on my CFW Cobra PS3 (4.82) to make this wired controller work, but I'd like to ask for any of you people's help to find an existing line for it or how to create one myself... All help is appreciated! (it's fine if I can't connect it, but it's a plus for me since my ps3 controllers are all messed up one way or another, bought them used, but this wired controller I got from a while ago is brand new)
    Edit: My ps3 is on CEX, not DEX. Just a heads up!

    Well just take the line from your webMAN plugin and copy it and place the plugin there. Then just change it from like this as example

    Code:
    dev_hdd0/plugins/webftp_server.sprx
    But make it look like this for PS3Xpad

    Code:
    dev_hdd0/plugins/ps3xpad.sprx
    Now the names of the plugins might not be exact as I'm not near my system but this picture may help you get how this needs to be done.

    Thanks! I think this is the tutorial given to set up PS3Xpad, right? If so, I have it up and running. When I press Select+Start+Square, the PS3Xpad menu pops up. The thing is, Idk how to make it work as it is already connected to the ps3 and I even rebooted it several times with it connected, it just says "unrecognized USB" on the top right as it should say for any non-Ps3 controller before using PS3Xpad... what do I do from here? I have PS3Xpad running!

    You have to enable it the first time with a PS3 pad but it's also not assured to work as it's a third party pad. Those are hit and miss and not fully supported I'm afraid so you might not be able to use it.

    Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to enable the controller? PS3Xpad runs just fine, but idk how to set my controller up... I read that since it's a third party controller, I have to add a special line to support it.
