Today i3urn has shared news of a DIY PS3 Controller project featuring PlayStation 3 controller automation utilizing a Teensy 2.0++ Macro hexcode.
Download: Teensy PS3 Macro Hexcode
To quote: I have recently been able to use my Teensy 2.0++ as a macro controller for my PS3. I have used it to automatically start a B-Spec race, wait for the race to finish (~9 mins), then press the correct keys to get the race started again. [And repeat].
This project is made possible by Mathieu Laurendeau's source code for his diyps3controller project on google code.
You may download and setup your development environment by following his instructions here.
After getting everything setup you may take a look at my PS3Controller.c file to get a feel for how to send buttons to the PS3. If you would like to learn more about sending different buttons/moving axis take a look in his usb_joystick.c file.
The zip file below will also contain TWO hex files for Teensy 2.0++ other devices will need to compile their own, one will press the X button every 11 seconds (useful in GT5 where you need your driver to maintain pace for the entirety of a race) and the other will initiate, wait, and restart the Lamborghini Exclusive race (the first lambo race) in GT5. The second hex assumes a race time of ~9mins.
AFTER YOU'VE INSTALLED THE HEX TO YOUR DEVICE:
First make sure you have turned off your other PS3 controllers or set them to controller other than 1.
Next just plug in your device and it will be recognized as Controller 1 and begin automation
I'm publishing my findings so that others can build macros and publish/share them with the community and am not looking for credit (frankly I didn't do to much to put it together anyway).
