HOW TO PLAY GUILD WARS 2 WITH A DUALSHOCK 3 CONTROLLER or THERE AND BACK AGAIN by Kyle PrahlTwitter: @PaybackPrahlGW2: PaybackPrahl.3192{Feel free to use this guide and republish on any website you choose, with the exception of GameFAQs. Irespectfully ask that credit be given to my name if the document is sourced or used elsewhere.}First things you will need to do:
Installthis driver to allow Windows 7 to recognize the DualShock 3 as an input device.
Install version 0.6.0005 of  MotioninJoy, a software that translates PS3 controller input into PC gamepad language. I currently use a very old version of MotioninJoy (0.4.000X), but there isn'tmuch difference. Mine's just buggier.
Install free version of Xpadder, fromthis site. Xpadder allows you to assign keyboard buttons andmouse emulation to buttons on a gamepad.
Acquire a LOOONG mini-USB cable (the one I use is 15 feet, which was a ~$6 purchase online).
The Setup
For anyone with a decent amount of computer knowhow, installing the DualShock 3 drivers and gettingMotioninJoy to run shouldn't be much of a hassle. Part of the process will be booting Windows 7 in “TestMode”; a necessary step that allows Windows 7 to run unsigned drivers. The information you needshould be found through the site I hyperlinked above, but Google is also your friend.Once your computer can recognize the PS3 controller as an input device, boot up MotioninJoy andconnect the controller via mini-USB. If memory serves me, MotioninJoy should recognize the controller automatically, which leaves you free to select from the available emulation options. For bestcompatibility, select “Xbox 360 Controller Emulator”, then click “Enable”. Now, boot up Xpadder, and follow the onscreen instructions to create a controller layout. Xpadder works by first allowing you to create a “layout” that matches your controller, then assigning functions to each button in the layout. As you create the layout and press the buttons it prompts you to, be sure to click anddrag the corresponding squares and circles that appear in Xpadder to their approximate positions on thecontroller. After dragging into appropriate spots, my layout looked like this:
Once the layout is set, save it with a relevant name (ex: PS3 to Xbox 360 controller layout). Now, we'reready to start mapping the gamepad. If this is starting to seem complicated, just remember this basicchain of logic for what we're doing:MotioninJoy (for making computer think your DualShock is a 360 pad) ------>Xpadder (for mapping keyboard and mouse functions to your “360 pad”) ------>Guild Wars 2 (special key bindings make additional functions possible)
The Controls
To start off, I'll give you some images that show what your MotioninJoy window, Xpadder window, andGuild Wars 2 key bindings should look like. If you match my images exactly, you'll have a control setupthat is identical to the one I describe below.
Step 1: Open MotioninJoy / DS3 ToolStep 2: The controller should not be connected yet
