This video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF_jMoLSYR0 shows someone connecting his PS3 controller to his Note using an OTG cable and playing MC4.

I use SixAxis on my S4 so I can connect to my PS3 controller using bluetooth and that works well but requires root, which, frustratingly, I don't have on my Note so I tried doing what the poster of the video did. Everything worked except for sprinting and this means I cannot even get to the first checkpoint.

I tried two different PS3 controllers with separate USB cables and separate OTG cables and exactly the same thing happened with both so I'm reasonably confident that this isn't a hardware issue (although neither OTG cable is an official Samsung one). Also, both controllers work perfectly on my S4 using SixAxis.

Has anyone else tried doing this and if so, what was your experience? The poster of the video clearly got sprinting working out of the box so I would love to know why this isn't working for me.

Double tap the left stick up. Two times up fast, this is sprint.

Excellent, thank you. It may take me a while to get used to that after years of COD and pressing L3 to sprint but I don't believe there is any way to remap the buttons so I'm sure I'll get used to it.

I have now realised that I don't know how to crouch either. I don't suppose you know how to do that as well do you?

You could go into the file that controls mapping for the past controller and try to edit it. I'd how your results would be thouugh

Actually a good point , are there any non root ways of remapping controls?

Which file is that? I wasn't aware that there was any way to re-map the controls.

I would be pleased to find out that there are. I prefer playing wirelessly but I could live with using the OTG cable as long as I could get all the controls working somehow.

Does anyone know if you can use the PS3 controller wireless ? or can it only be used with the USB OTG connection?

I haven't tried it myself but I believe that the answer is yes as I said in the OP. The trouble is that you need root which, due to the stupid Knox fuse, I do not have on my Note.

I also have an S4 and a Xoom. On both of those my PS3 controller works really well.
