Sixaxis + OSX

Here is source for sixaxis-init app for osx,  based on source I found some time ago for linux.

connnect sixaxis to usb port, run sixaxis-init, if it found and initilized sixaxis gamepad – press PS button.

Now you can use ur sixaxis gamepad with apps which supports gamepads, like controllermate.

Update: sixaxis in osx works with most cider games whichi normaly supports controllers, like nfs Mostwanted/Carbon

    great stuff dude. ive always wondered how can i get my sixaxis to work with my computer. anyway, will this enable the use of the sixaxis thru bluetooth or only usb?

    Not got a Ps3/pad to try this yet, but i will do when possible.

    Any chance of adding Dualshock3 to that, or will it already work?

    ahh shoot. it’s USB only :( any plans to add bluetooth wireless?

    afterall, i can already use a PS2 pad on usb and get the same result.

    Should this six-axis driver allow a PS3 Guitar Hero III guitar to work with (let’s say) Frets on Fire?

    A six-axis driver gets the guitar working under XP/Vista!

    This works for me on intel here BUT… the only games I have that use gamepads work through Boxer(Dosbox).. And as far as my testing determined this enables the left joystick for direction plus 4 other button inputs.. The problem is that these other buttons are not practical for gaming as they are: “select”, “start”, “LeftJoystickDepress”, and RightJoystickDepress”.. Is anyone else experiencing this 4 button limitation? Is DosBox limited to these buttons only? I’ve tried TattieBogle’s and USB overdrive X drivers without success.. This is the first glimmer of success but can someone with the technical skills please develop this driver further
