PC Game Controller...

Does Half Life 2 support an analogue controller (with 2 sticks like a PS3)? Apparently, Doom 3 doesn't?

I'm just gonna find it hard as I have a laptop.

I also heard you can use your PS3 controller with your laptop?

You can just download the drivers (don't have a link at the moment). It works perfectly. You can even do it through bluetooth.

Ok I have my PS3 controller working with my laptop now. However, as far as I can see, there's no options to use a controller with Area 51 or Doom 3.

If you can with Half Life 2, then are you able to use the 2 sticks for moving and camera? Wanting to use it with Left 4 Dead 2 and HL2.

Grrrr, when I've finished using the PS3 controller, I unplug it, and it then turns my PS3 on! Any way to stop this?

And do I always have to load up the Motionjoy ps3 software program to use the joypad with games?

What's your Steam id?
Go into settings and change the controls in each game there should be an option for joystick or something. If GTA: SA can do it I don't see why Doom 3 can't.

Unplug your PS3 maybe?

Yeah I could unplug my PS3 but bit of an annoyance.

There isn't an option in Area 51 or Doom 3 for controller.

Xpadder is $9.99 though :-(

Just got a free version....although how can you tell it to use analogue sticks in replacement of the up/down and mouse pad?

Well you can't change the controller options in Left 4 Dead....it seems to have it's own built in. My left stick is ok, but the right one makes your character shoot! Any ideas?
