Oolite using a Bluetooth PS3 Controller on a Mac?

Post by Bluefusion » Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:57 pm

Hi,
I remember reading an article a few weeks ago on a Mac site about being able to setup a playstation 3 bluetooth controller to work on a Mac for some games. Does anyone know if this would work so oolite could work with this?

Yes. I'm using a PS3 controller to play Oolite on my Mac all the time, too.
However, the method seems a bit complicated. Especially the thing with the passcode, I never needed to put in a passcode.
I just connect it via USB if it was connected with my PS3 first (cause otherwise it'd be paired with the PS3), disconnect it and turn it on (PS-Button). If it doesn't work, I select "configure Bluetooth device" in the menu bar, then it's definitely connected.
