PS3 Controller with MotioninJoy not working?
I have set up my PS3 controller with MotioninJoy and it works fine with NBA 2K14 but I can't get it to work with Lego Lord of the Rings. Any thoughts, Thanks.

I don't think it can work unfortunately, I have the same issue.

I got it working. Change the emulation within MotioninJoy to Xbox control and then you can select it within the controller options in the game. Was playing this the other day this way.

Try this instead

Instructions are all there. Usable with USB and bluetooth adapters. And none of MotionJoy's seedy past.

Thanks for the replies, I was able to get it to work using it as an xbox controller in MotioninJoy.

What was seedy about MotionJoy's past?

I heard it once had viruses/ malware/ adware in the like. Granted, that may be resolved now.

That said, more then a few places will steer you away from MotionJoy now. I used it for a bit, and while it did work, it did do a few odd/ suspicious things at times (opening a webpage when I was just trying to load a driver, and yes, my PC scans for viruses once a week. Nothing came up). This was 2012 to sometime earlier this year, in case you're wondering.

Despite Windows 7 recognising every MotiinInJoy controller configuration on-the-fly, LEGO LOTR refused to accept any of them using Options > Controller Configuration > Change Device.

I had a lot of trouble with this. I finally managed to get it working (motioninjoy DS3 0.7x, PS3 DS3 Sixaxis) as a "Xinput-default Xbox 360" controller emulator" but only as a dumb joypad, no analogue sticks. Also, some of the controls were weirdly configured. If you go into the motionjoy controller options, you'll see that the buttons don't seem to set up quite right, but I recommend you do not change them, but change them in-game.

As I was writing this guide, I realised that motioninjoy was not up to date. I updated it, then my sixaxis dropped out and motioninjoy said "Wait for controller(s) to be connected". It never reconnected, despite restarts and reinstalling it. it now says About > Driver v0.0.0.0 where it used to have 0.7x.

Windows still sees all the changes but now LEGO LOTR can't see the sixaxis anymore. FML.

I've just wasted about two hours on this and I'm over it. I have a generic USB gamepad, as well as PS/USB adaptors and an xbox controller with adaptor, I'll be moving to those in future.

Further Notes:
* Make sure you have the option saved in the custom panel, or selected in the main panel
* You do not need to restart either MotionInJoy or LEGO LOTR to detect changes

He meant he was using a PS3 controller but it has to be set to emulate an XBOX 360 controller to work in the game.

Maybe try this instead of MotionJoy? I was able to get a third party wireless PS3 controller & dongle to work on my PC, and you don't need to fire up the program each time to use it like you apparently need to do with MotionJoy. It doesn't directly emulate an actual 360 controller, but it still works in the Lego games as a custom controller.
