Hey guys, I've decided to show you all what a lot of people have overlooked as far as custom gamepad mappings go for MMOs.
I've always wanted a more immersive experience when playing an MMO, and this is a more comfortable, and adaptable solution. Tools used with The Old Republic are: MotionJoy (my custom config file here), and Xpadder(with custom config included for Toggle-Mouselook and right joystick as mouse axis). You may have to tweak some things like sensitivity and toggle options with Xpadder as I don't think it saved over but shouldn't be too hard to change. MotionJoy includes drivers for 32/64bit OS for the PS3 controller. So follow the directions on their site to install that program first, Xpadder to follow that.
*** UPDATE *** In MotionJoy, select Playstation 3 for mode and enable that. You won't need a custom config for MotionJoy, only Xpadder, which is included in the above link.
Make sure to calibrate the PS3 controller after you install the drivers and do reboots when they tell you to. If you have any questions you can try and ask them here (can be confusing at points), I'm running 64bit edition. When you get both key mapping programs reading off your PS3, that's a good sign, from there you can customize your settings. Xpadder may need to be run in Windows XP (Service Pack 3) compatibility mode, if you're having problems recognizing controls in-game. If you do download my profile configurations, check and see below what you need to change. Make sure to keep both running in the background when you start up SWTOR. Other than that, have fun and enjoy the new experience!
Changes to make to Input mapping in-game:
Target next enemy = Shift + F6
Target nearest enemy = F6
Quickslot Bar 1
5 = Shift + 1
6 = Shift + 2
7 = Shift + 3
8 = Shift + 4
Quickslot Bottom Center Bar 1 (Make sure to enable first)
1 = Ctrl + 1
2 = Ctrl + 2
3 = Ctrl + 3
4 = Ctrl + 4
9 = Ctrl + 9
10 = Ctrl + 0
11 = Ctrl + (-)
12 = Ctrl + (=)
Should be a good start but definitely can be expanded upon. If it's too confusing just make up your own configurations but make sure to change your custom MotionJoy configuration to match in-game.
Made a video today of me showing off the features and custom mappings, and a basic interface walkthrough. First one, so don't be too hard on me, but it shows off a bunch of different features so do try to watch the whole thing if you do plan on watching it, thanks. :)
