Default MotionJoy PS3 sixaxis Dual Shock Controller driver for Windows

Hey guys, i found this software called MotionJoy while searching for a gamepad to use with my NES emulator. It allows you to use a PS3 dual shock controller on your windows PC. I have been using it in digital mode for the NES emulator, but it says you can switch it to analog mode for games that support it. This is awesome for those of you that have a ps3 and want to try a gamepad on your PC without having to buy one. I have mine hooked up through USB, but with a Bluetooth dongle, you are able to use it wireless too.

Are they using 64bit, signed, vista/win7 compatible drivers yet? Those were my issues trying to use a PS3 controller in the past.
I am not running a self-signed driver in test mode just for one thing! -_-

*Edit
I was distracted but finally got around to viewing the site.
Screw them, distrib a signed driver or gtfo.

When you release new software you cannot just expect everybody with not only the current OS but the second newest OS (that your software runs on) to use silly hacks or workarounds _just_ to use only it.
Well, to be fair the people using this would most likely be the same people using other software that makes use of libusb.. and that is not signed either. In the case of libusb though, it is old.

Yes, they did put time and effort into making this but unless it is signed then it is not much better than what it is replacing.
