I hate analog control for FPSs, so Im looking for a way to get kb/m working.
I know the primary option consists of a programmable adapter to emulate controller keys (a la smartjoy frag), but the one designed for ps3 is $100, and the smartjoy requires a bunch of adapters and is limited to ps/2 and ball mouse.
Is there a program I could run on my computer (Or on my PS3 if it inst much hassle) to emulate controller buttons and feed to my ps3 via usb, thus eliminating the need for the hardware? Ive done a little searching, but havent turned up anything.

google is your best friend.
Edit: Oh, and then theres the fact that I explicitly said I did some searching. Youre not very bright, are you?

Might be worth emailing Andy over at Ultimarc (who makes all the encoders for Mame arcade enthusiasts). I'm pretty sure he does adapters for last gen machines but I don't think he's knocked out anything suitable for the PS3 yet.
If he can't help directly he's more likely to know if anything else suitable exists.
One thing to consider is the sensitivity though. Console FPS that are designed for analogue Joypad controls aren't programmed for the pixel accuracy and speed that PC FPS are because they would be so sensitive as to be uncontrollable with a pad. So even if you find a suitable solution you might find the mouse controls just as sluggish and frustrating as using analogue sticks.
And yes the advice on Google was a pointless and unhelpful comment but there's no need to be rude. If someone makes an inoffensive post (however stupid) that doesn't solve your problem just ignore it.

Yeah, Id hoped that something written for the ps3 would be possible so that I could connect the kb/mouse directly to the ps3. Id also hoped that some form of acceleration would be possible, so that I could just swing the mouse wide and get an appropriate speed for acquiring my target. I generally turn the sensitivity up so that joystick turning isnt painfully slow, but then I can never get my aim on the target quickly enough to avoid taking excessive damage, as my aim just flies all over the place. Ive never really had this much of a problem until trying to play resistance, so maybe Ill fiddle around with the sensitivity some more to find a more comfortable spot.
I apparently felt like tearing a new asshole at the time... Such a suggestion is insultingly arrogant (especially considering the obscurity of my request), and this doesnt seem like a place that would host many trolls.
Ill get in contact with Andy then. Thank you.
