Okay so i did what you guys said and i used textedit(mac) and then i clicked saved and saved it as a XML document. I put it in date/input/joystick/defualt/ps3.xml again and it still is saying flight gear had a problem starting. Did i put it in the wrong folder?

Hi anewb, Good work! I've put your PS3 Joypad XML in my XML "Library"
You can see it by clicking item 24 once you open link below.
Is that ok?.......sim

Hi guys. Not great with xml. I have copied the text into the data/joysticks.xml file. The controller works but it is using the driver described as joysticks/default/joystick.xml. so is only using a few buttons. If i copy the text into a file in that folder then the game quits during loading. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Is it possible to use the PS3 gyro function? I want to fly a hang glider with just the motion of the control, instead of pushing buttons. I was successful connecting the PS3 controller and flying with typical buttons. However, I can't figure out hot to read the accelerometer values from the PS3 controller.

Why do you need to read the accelerometer on a hang glider f0n ?
It would be most unusual for a hang glider pilot to need an accelerometer, most of 'em fly a hang glider without instruments.
Even if they were very keen on instruments, I'd imagine an ASI and maybe a Variometer would be sufficient.
What next? " My hang glider ILS ain't working!" :wink:
