After step 3, I turn the controller on. No need to manually scan, as the device is already paired. There is no prompt to connect. No access code.
The controller works right away in Steam. Its show as connected in menu bar, but controller red lights never stop to flash and the controller doesn't work. Seems like it fails to work since OS X I didn't have time to look into it yet sorry. If anyone has a solution please share and I'll edit my post! I have the same experience as john-kurkowski - after following these exact instructions the controller is paired automatically with no codes. Doesn't even appear in the Bluetooth list but works in games. OS X Yosemite Confirmed that the PS3 controller works both wirelessly via BT bluetooth and wired.
As reported above for Follow all the steps, the control is paired in Yosemite. When connected by cable, appears on OpenEmu but no buttons respond. When using Bluetooth, even if connected to the drop-down menu it does not even appear in OpenEmu. Someone went through it and managed to solve? Just trying this now on I'm using the controller to play games via OpenEmu.
When that app closes, for some reason it stops the lights from blinking. So now whenever I pair the controller, I just open and then close OpenEmu and the blinking lights go away. For this to work, the controller must be powered on and connected via bluetooth to your Mac before you open OpenEmu, and the controller must have been previously configured to be used in OpenEmu's control options.
Will report back if this technique works or not. Echoing multiple controller problems, for some strange reason I'm able to have 4 paired in the Bluetooth list but only 2 of them connected at one time. At one point I swear I had 3 connected but I think it was a fluke. Hey yo. Just thought I'd pop this in here, because I had a lot of trouble with this, but it is now solved.
PS3 Controller and Yosemite
Even updated to Sierra. No joy. However, the original control I bought was not an authentic Sony Control, which came with a USB cord, and it was only when I swapped that cord on a whim, is that it worked in but a second. Might be unique to my situation, but I tried everything else. May help. It looks like nobody talks about rumble issue. I can get my PS3 controller used in Sierra Pal says:. May 13, at am.
