Back in the day, MotionJoy Motioninjoy was the only game in town for getting a Dualshock 3 working in Windows 7, but it seems a lot of people weren't too happy with it, particularly since the config tool displayed an alarming number of ads. There was at least one alternative config tool. But it seems SCP DS3 is the new hotness now? Or am I missing something else?

I've been using Better DS3 with the MotioninJoy Drivers to play various PC and Emulated fighting games for over a year now with no issues. Both it and the XInput Wrapper are the go-to solutions as far as I know, though I never tried the latter.
The reason in particular this is coming up at the moment is that I wanted to use my Bluetooth adapter for something else, and couldn't seem to roll back the drivers. (Maybe I should just buy another. They're cheap enough.)
The only time I've managed to get Windows 7 to bluescreen was when I was mucking about with MotionJoy and Bluetooth.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!
So, I have my Dualshock 3 playing nicely with Windows 7 again thanks to the SCP driver. For a moment there it looked like the last remnants of the MotionInJoy drivers would continue to make my life miserable, but all seems well now.
The only problem now is getting Bluetooth working. At the moment I have my DS3 paired with my PSP Go, and I am gravely concerned about tinkering with that since I really, really don't want to go futzing around with MotionInJoy again if they become unpaired. (I barely managed to get it working at all last time.)
In the process of mucking around, I carefully recorded the Bluetooth MAC address for the PSP Go, but I can't seem to find anywhere in the SCP driver settings where I can manually specify the MAC address as I could in Better DS3, as illustrated in my first post. Am I missing something? (Can someone at least suggest a forum where I should take this question, if not here?)
EDIT: Oh, of course, that's what the "Bluetooth Pair Utility" in the Start menu is for. I guess typing in a new address will set a new "Remote" address for the DS3? I am a bit reluctant to experiment, and there seems to be little information on exactly what this does.

I have only one problem with the SCP driver. It doesn't have an easy method of remapping the buttons. In particular, because the dpad automatically maps to a hat control, it doesn't work well with a lot of emulators. (Because rather than UP plus RIGHT, it just registers DIAGONAL RIGHT, which doesn't map to anything)
