How to hook up my PS3 controller to the Windows emulator?
I just downloaded the windows emulator so i could play Kingdom Hearts BBS and when i started it up, i went to configure the controls to my controller and it doesn't seem to be picking up whenever i hit button on the controller but my PCSX2 emulator does, any solutions?

As TheDax likes to say :

I can't tell you given that I don't know PCSX2...
Maybe PCSX2 has integrated the needed drivers ?

I'm not sure how PCSX2 does it, but it might talk directly to the PS3 controller with RawInput or something, while PPSSPP uses DirectInput and/or XInput, which are built-in to Windows itself. So if your computer doesn't "understand" what a PS3 controller is on its own, PPSSPP won't, either.

RE: How to hook up my PS3 controller to the Windows emulator?
I want to use a PS3 controller for my PPSSPP emulator too. But I don't have the bluetooth thing it says to use. I have the controller plugged in through a USB. I am using a Toshiba laptop with Windows on it. I thinks its the newest Windows. How do I set it up?

The Scarlet Crush driver works for both bluetooth and USB, just install it and it should act just like any other XInput device in windows
