Playing DN with PS3 controller

Just because I can doesn’t mean I should. My 2nd experience of trying to play DN with the Playstation Dualshock 3 controller is very interesting, but I’ll stick with keyboard and mouse.

The movement is better than during my 1st experience, probably due to different driver/software used. Still, the dungeon run is as disastrous as before. Maybe I need more practice. But I think I’ll drown in my own frustrations first.

Camera rotation is one speed only, so that’s problem number 1. The amount of skills slots means combination keys have to be used (for example L1 + Square button) so trying to fire off the right skill while moving out of harm’s way is problem number 2.

Good thing I’m use a Majesty. My sister was telling me how it would be quite complicated trying to get it working with an Acrobat.

Point of the experiment was, I could get it to work. But I wouldn’t play DN with a controller unless I am able to get round the above problems.

For those interested, this is the method that I used to get PS3 controller working with my computer (yes it is primarily for emulators, shhh). I tried Motion In Joy before but the uninstalling part gave me headaches.
