Nice one. Didn't know PS3 pads where supported n OSX.

Those of you who want to use their PS3 controllers on a Windows computer should head over to http://www.motioninjoy.com/ to get windows drivers. You can easily create profiles in the driver itself to map keyboard keys to the PS3 pad.

I used to use a ps3 controller to play Titan Quest. Was a pain in the ... to setup originally, but worked quite well..

I was just researching how to do this and found this post. Where is the Virtual Controllers tab?

Does anyone have any experience with doing this using a logitech controller rather than a PS3?

Unfortunately I am developing RSI in my mousing hand. Every time I put my hand into the mouse posture, I get this subtle pain that gets worse over time. I have three computers (laptop & stand-alone at home, one at work), and I'm currently trying to eliminate mice completely from my computing life. They've become horrible, horrible little machines for me.

Got a touchpad so far, am looking at the vertical mouse and other more expensive options as well. The touchpad isn't particularly good for minecraft, as left/right-clicking is too similar to the mouse for my hand to deal with.

But I already have a logitech controller, and it seems logical that a game like Minecraft should work with one (I frankly don't know why that's not an option in the game as-sold). So it's pretty legitimate to have no interest in continuing with keyboard/mouse.

Speaking of Logitech, maybe one of their trackball mice might work. You don't actually move the mouse, just a ball.

I've got the whole thing set up, working great, EXCEPT for one thing.
The switch items thing.  It uses the mouse wheel, and the virtual machine seems to only have two buttons registered (left and right click).
I don't want someone to do this for me, what I'd like is to know how to create mouse outputs?  I can see the mouse wheel function, but when I add it it will not attach to the input function (like L2 or L1).
I'd like it to use L1 and mouse wheel negative and L2 as mouse wheel positive.
Can anyone help me with this?

HEY EVERYONE I found a open souce program for mac it's just like joytokeypad/ControllerMate but it doesn't rip you off and want you to pay 25 dollars tell me if it works for your mac I have no idea since I own a windows computer http://abstractable.net/enjoy/ it's called enjoy from what I can tell it's easy to setup like joytokey and use Motionjoy not sure if motionjoy works for mac though but I know it worked fine for windows with Motionjoy and joytokey
Minecraft is awesome but the more powerful god is not Notch it's the creator of valve
